The housecleaning is coming. And the San Diego Chargers won't go halfway. Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego reported Thursday that general manager A.J. Smith and coach Norv Turner will be fired at the end of the season. Acee's sources said Chargers president Dean Spanos "essentially decided at least a month ago" that Turner would be let go. Spanos also recently decided that Smith will be let go, too.

Of course, the Chargers deny the claim. But why wouldn't they with the season not yet over. Not only did Smith ruin the team by firing Marty Schettenheimer for the simple fact that he didn't like him, but this should be the last time Turner is given a chance as an NFL head coach.

There were rumors circulating a couple weeks ago that Reid would be one of the leading candidates of the position if let go by Philly. And now that Smith will be gone, it gives the Chargers some ability to lure Reid in with some front office say. These rumors are going to explode.

He was, but according to the media, they want us to believe the Chargers basically bent the Giants over a park bench on that trade...

they don't now, but then they did, and understandably so, a year or so into that trade Merriman looked like a defensive MVP candidate (in all my wisdom i was crying about us not taking him instead of Ware) , the FG kicker was pro bowl caliber and Rivers looked promising....so then it looked good for SD...now not so much

For awhile it looked. like they did. A pro bowl qb and pro bowl stud pass rusher is better than a qb alone. That team fell apart fast though and never capitalized on the talent they did have when they uad tue chance. For awhile there they were one of the more talented teams. Ultimately their players fell apart and the Giants were better at building a team than Smith.
