FN FolliesWeek 6 of the NFL saw its fair share of follies, including the Philadelphia Eagles blowing yet another lead, the Dallas Cowboys bumbling a last-second potential game-winning drive, and poor performances by both the San Francisco 49ers and Houston Texans.But we had to wait until Monday night for the worst performance of the week - a historic collapse by the San Diego Chargers.Leading 24-0 at halftime, the Chargers allowed the Peyton Manning-led Denver Broncos to come back and win, 35-24. It was the first time in NFL history that a team trailing by 24 points came back to win by double digits.This comes on the heels of last week's collapse, in which the Chargers blew a 24-14 lead against the New Orleans Saints and lost, 31-24. And now, the media and fans in San Diego agree - it's time for head coach Norv Turner to go.While we agree that Turner is an inept coach, has as much charisma as a cement block, and probably didn't deserve to return this season, an interim c...

After this past Monday night’s collapse at home against the Denver Broncos,, San Diego Chargers general manager A.J. Smith hinted that if things don’t improve that a “new era” could be starting soon.“I take full responsibility for the present mess this team is in at this point in time,” Smith said, via Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune. “The construction and...

Norv Turner keeps saying San Diego can be a good team, and the Chargers keep responding with second-half collapses.
Monday night was epic: The Chargers blew a 24-0 halftime lead and lost 35-24 to Peyton Manning and the AFC West-rival Denver Broncos.
It tied for the fourth-biggest comeback in NFL regular-season history.
A week earlier, San Diego blew a 10-point third-quarter lead...
Well, there can’t be too many positive things to say about the San Diego Chargers and the pathetic second-half meltdown on Monday Night.
The talk on sports radio has been that head coach Norv Turner and general manager AJ Smith are dead men walking and it would be a miracle if they keep their jobs at the end of the season – if they even make it that far.
AJ Smith himself agrees...
I don’t get it. Am I taking crazy pills?Why are people shocked that The Chargers collapsed on Monday night? Why did people think they would win in the first place? This is exactly what they do every year. This is The Chargers recipe:Have a mediocre season. Let the media clamor for the firing of AJ Smith and Norv Turner.Allow them to keep their jobs. Make flashy draft selection...
Another week, another blown double-digit lead in the second half by the San Diego Chargers.
And Norv Turner getting asked if it was time he was fired.
''I don't think I'm going to respond to that,'' the Chargers coach said after Peyton Manning rallied the Denver Broncos to a 35-24 victory Monday night.
When the Chargers needed to respond in the fourth quarter...
In this unpredictably wild season, nothing is certain.
Craziness has become the theme of 2012, and week six exemplified that.
Up 24-0 at home, Norv Turner and the San Diego Chargers had the Monday Night game in the bag. That was until Peyton Manning and the Broncos stormed back to make history, becoming the first team to be down 24 points and still win by double digits.
Following his team's unforgivable second-half disintegration against Denver, San Diego's Norv Turner was all set to sit atop the throne with the hottest seat for embattled NFL head coaches.
But then Andy Reid displayed Tuesday how much the heat is getting to him in Philadelphia.
Reid's firing of defensive coordinator Juan Castillo reeks of desperation. It also reflects...
