When Jarret Johnson signed with the San Diego Chargers this offseason he figured some of his success with the Baltimore Ravens being an annual Super Bowl contender could help rub off them in a positive way. He has finally started to figure out after 11 games this really is hopeless despite the talent they have. As you all know the Chargers find every way possible to lose close games; something I have ******* about for years due to atrocious coaching and not getting the most of who is on their roster. Oh and of course cannot forget all the excruciating painful lost wagers that have come along with it.Check out these outstanding and accurate comments Johnson said after yesterday’s lost that featured the Chargers D allowing a 4th and 29 conversion by Ray Rice. Thanks to larrybrownsports.com for finding these quotes:“It’s just really frustrating because we’ve shown we can play, I’ve been on bad teams, riddled with injuries, bad guys, dysfunctional. This team is every bit the opposite of that … We’ve shown we’re a talented team, offensively and defensively. And at the same time, we’ve turned around and proven time and again that we just don’t know how to win.”Couldn’t have been said any better. It’s great seeing this come from someone whose dealt with this first hand on the field not all the Monday Morning QB’s like myself who will always have our credibility questioned. Furthermore, its even more intriguing that it comes from Johnson whose only been with the team for 11 games and has not been involved in the previous years of choking. He obviously understands this coming from Baltimore who may have not made it to a Super Bowl with him but at least made the playoffs every year and took care of games they had leads such as the Chargers did yesterday. You would think for comments like this to come out of the San Diego locker room it would be from someone whose been there for a long time not a new comer.It definitely comes down to the mindset of this team being soft and weak; just not being able to suck it up with games on the line. That is why I believe Johnson is so few furious because he has higher expectations and is not like some of the long lasting Chargers who have been accustomed to these kind of losses under Norvan.All Charger fans have been begging for Turner to get fired and it’s comments like these that only help solidify this notion. How can the GM go through another season with one of their best defensive players questioning this teams will to win? They CANNOT. He’s had far to many chances already.

The San Diego Chargers had a tremendous chance to remain in the playoff hunt on Sunday, but once again they failed to get the job done. For Norv Turner’s team, that is certainly nothing new. But this loss may have stung a bit more than some of the others, as San Diego forced the Baltimore Ravens into a 4th and 29 situation with less than two minutes remaining, only to let Ray Rice...
San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Matthews is a bust and I mean in the nicest way possible. This is why we need to look at the facts to get this fact into Charger fan heads. The assessment is not based on his injury history, because that alone would make him a bust, but it’s based on his production on the field. It’s true that Matthews had over 1500+ yards on the ground and...

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Justin Tucker kicked a 38-yard field with 1:07 left in overtime to complete a stunning comeback for the Baltimore Ravens, who beat the staggering San Diego Chargers 16-13 on Sunday.
San Diego led 13-3 on Nick Novak's 30-yard field goal with 7:51 to go in regulation and seemed headed for its first win against a team with a winning record this season.
The Chargers (4-7) will not qualify for postseason play. Norv Turner will be fired some time between now and the divisional round of the playoffs. These things we know. The question is: what now? Here is a look at three things the Chargers need to accomplish over the next five weeks.
