Chargers President Dean Spanos presented Norv Turner with a game ball after San Diego stunned the Steelers, its first regular-season victory in Pittsburgh in 15 tries. That's the same Dean Spanos who is expected to fire Turner, most likely along with general manager A.J. Smith, shortly after this dismal season ends. The 34-24 victory Sunday isn't expected to change anything, other than keep the Chargers mathematically, if not realistically, alive for a wild-card playoff berth at 5-8. Turner tried to deflect talk of his future Monday, trying to keep the focus on his next opponent, the Carolina Panthers. After the Chargers lost seven of their previous eight games, the victory over the Steelers left many fans wondering: ''Where has that been all season?'' It was San Diego's first victory against a winning team this year.

The Chargers scored 21 points in the second, 14 of...

Now The Steelers Have A Buttfumble

I’m probably not the best judge of this based on Pittsburgh homerism, but I’ll argue that this buttfumble isn’t quite as hilarious as the one that happened to the Jets, mostly because it doesn’t include someone going headfirst into someone’s backside. Nevertheless, it involves a butt causing a fumble. And it helped the Steelers lose a critical game to a team coached by...
