Default Why your team sucks: San Diego Chargers

Some people are fans of the San Diego Chargers. But many, many more people are NOT fans of the San Diego Chargers. This 2013 Deadspin NFL team preview is for those in the latter group. Read all the 2013 NFL previews so far right here.

Your team: San Diego Chargers

Your 2012 record: 7-9, which is actually kind of better than I remember them being. I totally thought they had gone 4-12. Either way, if you have to go 0-16 in order to purge your franchise of AJ Smith and Norv Turner for good, you do what you have to do. AJ Smith was the absolute worst.

Your coach: Mike McCoy, who could go 2-14 and blow up a church this season and still be liked by Chargers fans simply for not being Norv Turner. It's like the grace period after winning a Super Bowl. No team that fires Norv Turner has ever come to regret it. Norv was the coach of this team for six seasons, but six seasons under Norv feels like 38. You poor, poor bastards...

I said some things about the Broncos oline play, then i watched SD and Oak. Wow they can't protect the qb at all. I'm not sure Rivers or Flynn stand a chance. No stud playmakers and a crappy oline.

SD will be thinking back to the late 90's as the glory years here soon enough...

Rebuilds suck but it's all worth it to get rid of Norv!

Bring on Clowney!

That's the spirit! Stay positive while your team further solidifies itself as the resident NFL dingleberry.

Chargers poised to another 10 year swoon to collect multiple top 5 draft picks.

Ya know, I'm not all that into bashing other teams when my own team pulled one of the biggest gag jobs of all time last season.

But carry on bashing other teams and we'll see come January if these gagging maggots known as the Denver Broncos can back up all the yapping.

Nah, unless Rivers goes down, the Chargers will probably wind up with 6-8 wins.

Oak, Jax, NYJ all have the inside track in the Clowney sweepstakes IMO.
