Default AJ Smith calls out the Chargers.

I hope this isn't a repost.

Hey, man, the search function isn't working for me(on firefox OR IE), so I looked a couple pages back and found nothing.

I don't know what's funnier - the Chargers' GM having a meltdown, or Herm explaining how a team *should* be run.

Chargers are imploding, but its nothing a Bronco loss to Pats, then to Bolts won't cure.

Broncos win these next 2 games they could really set the Dolts back.

Not just Norv Turner's job is on the line. AJ's is as well...

Enter our worst nightmare...Shanny.

I agree with Herm.

While I don't care for AJ's style to air stuff in the media, that's his style. It's been that way since he's been here so this is nothing surprising or new. But the team definitely needs to be called out so in that regard, I agree with him.

Shanny isn't going to SD, they won't pay him enough. And why would it be our worst nightmare? We'd know their defense and special teams would suck

In the realm of all possibilities, this is not too far fetched
Shanny would take that job in a heartbeat

My money is on Shanahan going to the Redskins. He makes no sense coming to San Diego.

Hopefully Washington will be interested in Shanny this offseason as well. They would easily win a bidding war with SD for Shanny, but I could also see Shanny taking less money to go to a far more talented SD team and to stay closer to home.

I still can't believe they brought Norv back after an 8-8 season. They should have grabbed up Chuckie.

Yeah he is going to the Chargers, it makes perfect sense to me. Norv can't get you guys over the hump.


He isn't going to the Redskins...Snyder has too much control.

Gruden is a very likable personality (he's awesome on MNF) but I think he's a bit overrated. Kiffin's defense was the strength in Tampa Bay. Gruden is a so-called quarterback guru but his quarterbacks and offenses have stunk outside of Rich Gannon.

I'd still probably take him over Norv just because I don't care for Norv but I'm pretty sure the Chargers offense (especially Rivers) wouldn't be what it is today. The one thing even Norv haters can't deny is that he has helped develop Rivers into one of the best QBs in the NFL.

You think Shanahan would have control here?

AJ Smith may be getting some heat these days but I'd be shocked if they got rid of him this soon. AJ's the man in charge for the forseeable future.

He would have some control, yes. I don't think AJ has won any Super Bowls in the NFL.

The buzz all over town in DC is that the skins are going to go with Holmgren.
IMO if shanny accepts working with a GM then he will be with the chargers or cowboys(I guess Jones is like a GM).

I would love that rivalry twice a year. That would be the best thing to happen in the AFC West in a long time. Hopefully Al Davis will pass the torch and Oakland can become a proud franchise once again likewise KC can see competitive games again. I love good football games and a strong AFC West would cause that to happen.

Josh McDaniels is going to be the cream of the coaching crop for the foreseeable future and a compeitive AFCW would be truly awesome.

I don't want Shanahan in this division. I have to much admiration for him, and I don't want to have to hate Shanny.

I don't see how Shanny can demand what he's always had given his record w/ it. Shannahan is a peoples man...he'll go where he can get along w/ ownership and they pay him. I think Dallas and Chicago are the most likely. He's a midwesterner. He'd love to complete his career w/ the QB he believed in.

I'll say it again. I'd L-O-V-E for Shanny to go to San Diego, especially since it's a near certainty that Slowik will be joining him as the DC. We would be truly blessed by the almighty football gods if McDaniels got to face a Slowik led, division rival defense twice a year.

I pray to all major and minor deities that this happens.

This is just running per script. San Diego implodes in the first half and Denver in the second half. Just like last year.

We are 4 games in. I knew this board would go apeshiat with an expected 3-0 start but beating Dallas has sent you a little over the edge a little too early.

In 10 days you will likely be 4-2 and the Bolts 3-2.

If at that point you are 5-1 or 6-0 and the Bolts 2-3 then it is pretty safe to say the tides have turned.
