Found December 19, 2012 on Football Nation:
Before Week 15, there were 8 victims of the NFL grind, and with arguable exceptions, they were all declared 'dead men walking' quite some time ago.After Week 15's slate of games, there would be another quartet of lifeless masses heaped upon the Football Nation Morgue, all with just a smidgen more optimism than that original group of tagged-and-bagged cases.As these final weeks play out, the air of frustration surrounding the final batch of departed souls will be thick enough to cut with a Ginsu knife, as that group will have collapsed at a critical pass. Quite a stark contrast to the first few to get wheeled in here.As for this week's collection of cadavers, they fell somewhere in the middle: optimistic at times, but never with blinders.And speaking of blind, maybe a few of em checked off the 'eyes' box on their organ donor cards....Subject: San Diego ChargersDate of Death: December 16, 2012Record at Time of Death: 5-9Contributing Factors to Death:1.

Takeo Spikes Got $36 From His Mom For His Birthday

San Diego Chargers linebacker Takeo Spikes is rich, rich with love from his mother.  He turned 36 years old on Monday and his mom didn't forget about him.  This Instagram photo that Spikes posted is quite hilarious.

“At least Five” Teams Interested In Having Norv Turner Run Their Offense?

Kevin Acee of Union-Tribune San Diego tweets that current Chargers head coach Norv Turner will have “his pick of  at least five” offensive coordinator jobs once he’s fired.

Smith's end-of-season-fire-sale mentality; and a head coach who isn't...

Norv Turner could be on a business trip at MetLife

San Diego Chargers coach Norv Turner won't be "San Diego Chargers coach Norv Turner" for very long. After getting fired by the Chargers in two weeks, he'll likely become some needy team's offensive coordinator by the end of January.That team could very well be the New York Jets. The Tony Sparano experiment didn't work out in 2012 for the Jets, and Sparano...

Malcom Floyd Placed On IR

Chargers receiver Malcom Floyd (ankle) has been placed on injured reserve.Fantasy Spin:Floyd (56-814-5) apparently suffered an ankle injury in Week 15 against the Panthers. Without Floyd, Philip Rivers becomes even less appealing in Week 16 against the New York Jets and their No. 2 ranked pass defense. Danario Alexander will likely see more targets but he'll be difficult to trust...
