I think it’s time for the Chargers to go on their annual late season run. Unfortunately, just like the last 2 seasons, probably all this late season run is going to end up doing is saving Norv Turner’s and AJ Smith’s job and not actually help them make the playoffs. This week, they play Baltimore, who is overrated and generally struggles on the road as favorites. If they can win that game, I think they can, they’ll be 5-6 with an easy schedule. They finish at home for Cincinnati, @ Pittsburgh (maybe without Roethlisberger), vs. Carolina, @ the Jets, and vs. Oakland.

NFL teams have become adept at using social media to connect with their fan bases.
But at some point, when seasons are going really, really bad, they have to know that posting anything – from charity events to team merchandise discounts — is going to get some backlash.
That’s what happened this week with the San Diego Chargers, who decided to have a nice Black Friday sale....
The San Diego Chargers have a long list of injuries heading into Sunday's home game against Baltimore.
The wobbly Chargers (4-6) are in dire need of a victory to keep their slim playoff hopes alive after losing two straight games and five of six.
''Obviously, we are playing one of the better teams in the league,'' coach Norv Turner said Wednesday. ''...
A Thanksgiving Day practice gave the Chargers reason to be thankful
Starting nose tackle Aubrayo Franklin returned to practice Thursday ahead of schedule from a knee injury suffered Nov. 11. Franklin missed last Sunday's game against the Broncos and was originally expected to be sidelined a couple weeks.
It was hardly all good news, though.
Left tackle Jared Gaither (groin...
The Baltimore Ravens usually have a tough time against San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. Fortunately, they won't have to face him Sunday without safety Ed Reed as the last line of defense.
Reed, an eight-time Pro Bowl star, was suspended for one game on Monday for repeated helmet-to-helmet hits. He appealed the suspension and on Tuesday the punishment was reduced...
The San Diego Chargers say Sunday's home game against the Baltimore Ravens will be blacked out in Southern California because more than 9,000 general admission tickets remained unsold 72 hours before kickoff.
It will be the second blackout this season for the Chargers (4-6), who are desperately trying to remain alive in the wild-card race. Their home game against Atlanta on...
Baltimore Ravens (8-2) at San Diego Chargers (4-6)
The Chargers haven’t beaten a team other than the Chiefs since week 2, when they beat the Titans, who aren’t exactly great either and then before that they beat Oakland. Why would anyone pick them to beat the Ravens? Well, that seems to be the public sentiment this week as the public is pounding Baltimore as small road favorites...
The Ravens (8-2) fly to San Diego this weekend to play the Chargers in a 4:00 game (EST, Sunday, Nov.25)...and even though the Chargers are 4-6, they are being picked by a lot of media "experts" to beat the Ravens.
This is because Baltimore has a history of playing their worst games against San Diego in Qualcomm stadium. Maybe it's the "Curse ofJohnny Unitas...
There's no question that the Baltimore Ravens are the better - and hotter - team in Sunday's road matchup with the San Diego Chargers.
Still, overconfidence shouldn't be a problem after what transpired last season.
With revenge in the back of their minds and star safety Ed Reed available, the Ravens seek a fourth straight win against a Chargers team teetering on the...
When it comes to finding out whether or not head coaches are getting through to their teams, the biggest indication is if the team is giving their maximum effort. Looking at the performances of the Philadelphia Eagles and San Diego Chargers last Sunday, it appears the respective coaches have lost their team. The Eagles lost 31-6 to the Washington Redskins, which drops the team to...
Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 11 in the National Football League! Andy Reid doesn’t make it till the end of the season now, right? If Philly keeps having games like this I can’t see this franchise keeping Reid as the head coach.
