San Diego Chargers
SAN DIEGO -- Mike Tolbert came back to San Diego with his touchdown dance intact and "a whole bag of chips" on his shoulder, and helped assure that the Chargers will miss the playoffs for the third straight season.
Tolbert scored twice against his former team and DeAngelo Williams turned a tipped pass from Cam Newton into a 45-yard touchdown reception to lead the Carolina Panthers to a 31-7 victory against the punchless Chargers on Sunday.
Carolina (5-9) won consecutive games for the first time since last December.
"It's a great feeling to be able to score the first two touchdowns back here," Tolbert said. "It's indescribable."
The Chargers (5-9) clinched their first losing season since 2003, when they were an NFL-worst 4-12. Coach Norv Turner is expected to be fired at season's end, most likely along with general manager A.J. Smith.
The Chargers did a face-plant a week after upsetting the Pittsburgh Steelers 34-24 to remain mathematica...
BEST OF MAXIM
MAD AS HELL
Frustrated Panthers fans have taken out a full-page ad in Monday’s Charlotte Observer in which they accuse the team's owner of perpetrating a pyramid scheme.
Football fans are a unquie breed. We can deal with our team’s best and worst of times.
But when the worst hits epic lows due to mismanagement, there will be a very public outcry.
Billboards, magazine ads and viral internet campaigns have been used for various franchises.
A group of Carolina Panthers lifers, took out an ad in the team’s local newspaper The Charlotte Observer...
No doubt a dedicated bunch, Panthers fanatics have followed in the footsteps of center Ryan Kalil, who in July took out a full-page newspaper ad guaranteeing a Super Bowl.
Same newspaper, same length. The only difference? They went in the completely opposite direction.
A group of Panthers fans, calling themselves the “Perturbed Panthers PSL Owners Federation," bought a full...
While Panthers coach Ron Rivera believes a strong finish is crucial for his team's confidence heading into next season, he's not sure if winning three of the last four games will be enough to save his job.
Rivera says ''I think we have to keep going,'' adding it's vital the Panthers beat Oakland and New Orleans to finish 7-9.
Carolina (5-9) enjoyed its...
There are no more false hopes surrounding the hapless San Diego Chargers.
Done in by Mike Tolbert, one of the many players authoritarian general manager A.J. Smith has allowed to leave over the years, the Chargers were eliminated from playoff contention for the third straight year in a dismal 31-7 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
The Chargers (5-9) clinched their first...
People in Charlotte love to buy space in the newspaper. Back in July, Panthers center Ryan Kalil bought a full page ad in the Charlotte Observer, promising Panthers fans a Super Bowl victory this year. That hasn’t worked out so well. Especially with Kaili on IR since October with a foot injury. Now a group [...]
The Carolina Panthers have ruled running back Jonathan
Stewart out for today’s contest against the San Diego Chargers, while wide
receiver Brandon LaFell and linebacker James Anderson are questionable to play.
Stewart has been sidelined since sustaining an ankle injury during
a Nov. 26 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles. The running back missed
practice all week and has...
The Carolina Panthers will play against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. Scheduled for a 4:05 pm EST kickoff this game will air on FOX from Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.
Both teams could look quite different next season. Reports suggest that Chargers coach Norv Turner is set to be fired along with general manager AJ Smith. The Panthers have already made a move to replace their...
The Carolina Panthers "Chargers East" embarrassed the San Diego Chargers, 31-7 on Sunday. San Diego has been on a downward spiral since the week six Monday Night Football "double-header" versus Denver by losing to Cleveland, Tampa Bay, Denver (again), Baltimore, and Cincinnati. The team has only bested Kansas City (really, who hasn't), and, frankly, surprised...
SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Chargers killed their slim hopes for a playoff berth with one of their worst performances of the season. Two touchdown passes by Carolina quarterback Cam Newton and two rushing scores by fullback Mike Tolbert boosted the Panthers to a 31-7 victory Sunday at Qualcomm Stadium. The loss officially ended San Diego's bid for the postseason. It's...
