Shaun Phillips is just the latest twit. Many NFL players show the need to relinquish frustration via a social networking site. Phillips just got a little fan frustrated.
On Nov. 20, @ShaunPhillips95 innocently posted:
To all the fake fans suck it cause talking ish won't get us anywhere. How's your perfect life my point exactly.
Aside from the fact that Phillips doesn’t use proper pronunciations when he tweets, he may not always think things through. Neither does Charger fans that blow this twit out of proportion.
Phillips needs more clarification for fake fans. If talking “ish” about Phillips’ Chargers makes someone a fake fan, well, there are over three million people in San Diego. I doubt most San Diegans started a work week on Monday saying, “Hey Frank, I know these Chargers are struggling, but I think they are going to be okay, I really like the direction of this team.”
San Diego is not that classy. In fact, that four letter “S” word that Phillips used, was probably...

Former NFL wide receiver Jerry Rice played for current San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner when they were both with the Raiders. From his expedience with Turner, Rice seems to not be a big believer in him as an NFL head coach. “Norv Turner is one of those coaches that just can’t you over [...]
Philip Rivers says he can't recall losing five straight games in any competitive sport, unless dominoes count.
Not in high school. Not during his career at North Carolina State.
But Rivers and the San Diego Chargers have lost five straight games, the franchise's worst streak since going 0-5 to open the 2003 season.
The latest setback was a 31-20 loss at Chicago in which...
Ryan Mathews had a costly fumble against the Bears on Sunday, and a fan gave the Chargers' running back some advice during an autograph session this week.
It was a perfect capper to my Sunday that I couldn't even comment on my own site. The fact that Jay Cutler broke his thumb during Cason's interception return is also a perfect summation of the Chargers. Cutler shredded the Bolts, but the rest of the AFC West will get to face the Bears without their starting quarterback. But, as Tom Twomey reminded me, it doesn't...
In Chicago, Ferris Bueller took a day off. The Chargers' offense took the 4th quarter off. In a game they had a couple of chances to win late (where have I heard that before?), San Diego once again fell short.
Their 31-20 loss to the Bears was their 5th straight loss. In all of them they had an opportunity to win. In all of them something disastrous happened to prevent that...
There was no hopping up and down. No yelling or chanting.
Quietly, every last remaining San Diego Chargers player circled together at the start of Wednesday's practice for a double-secret players-only pow-wow. Afterward, they were about as forthcoming of the roughly two-minute gathering as a USS Carl Vinson sailor probed on the burial at sea.
"I wasn't aware,"...

Dielman, Chargers teammates subjected to altered state of concern over concussions.
Week 11 at Chicago. 3:11 left in the game, down 31-20. The most precious commodity for the San Diego Chargers at this moment is time. To this point a variety of juvenile mistakes have been made. The next "slip up" can only be described as, in-explainable. Incredible. Boggling.
After a Matt...
The Chargers say 3,400 tickets must be sold to lift the blackout.
The Chargers have had late-season rallies under Turner to reach the playoffs, but they stumbled last December and missed the postseason. This season could hinge on Sunday's home game against Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos
The Chargers announced Tuesday afternoon that 3,400 tickets must be sold by 1:15 p.m. Thursday to lift the local television blackout of Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos at Qualcomm Stadium. If the blackout is lifted, the game will be televised on Channel 8 in San Diego and Channel 2 in Los Angeles and Orange County. Source: North County Times Attached Thumbnails
The Broncos appear likely headed to San Diego this weekend at full strength. All 52 players on the active roster — the team has yet to fill the spot left vacant after Kyle Orton's release — were at Wednesday's practice.
