Kissing Suzy Kolber:
Chargers director of public relations Bill Johnston posted on Thursday night on the team’s official website an invitation for Chargers fans to “take a chill pill” about the team suffering blown leads in prime time games on consecutive weeks. The latter of which was the biggest blown lead in the history of Monday Night Football, in case that nugget hadn’t been jackhammered into your head enough this week.
What’s with you people?
Yes, Monday night’s loss was bad. Horrible. Embarrassing.
Ok… enough already. No mas. I get it.
Now get over it. It was a loss. One loss.
Listening to some of you out there, you’d think Monday night was “win or go home” and the Chargers are now packing their bags.
“The Chargers are finished. Done,” said one scribe.
Another wrote, “Bye, bye Chargers. Put a fork in them.”
Sometimes I think Twitter was invented to give people a chance to puff out their chests and talk big, saying things they never would say to someone’s face.
That and hashtag jokes. And retw

The way that the San Diego Chargers lost to the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football was incredibly horrid.
They dropped a 24-point lead in the second half that featured several turnovers and poor game management.
After years of these episodes, the fans are once again justifiably up in arms.
The team’s public relations department is so desperate to quell the masses...
The San Diego Chargers and Denver Broncos went face to face in a pretty good match-up on Monday. It seemed like the Chargers had it all in the bag until they seemingly had a meltdown and ended up turning the ball over five times in a few short plays. This in turn blew a 24-point lead and the Chargers lost to the Broncos 35-28.

Give Chargers general manager A.J. Smith credit — he’s not in denial.After watching the team he built specifically to avoid a fold-job fold the last two weeks, Smith admitted that the current administration has 10 weeks to save jobs.“I take full responsibility for the present mess this team is in at this point in time,” Smith said, via Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego. “The...
I am not even sure where to start. On one hand, that was one of the sorriest steaks of football I have ever seen carved from the NFL beef slab. On the other hand, this team is making me look downright telepathic. You know how you can tell that the San Diego Chargers are predictable? Because even a schmuck like me has seen this coming since the day they decided that Norville deserves...
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 can only imagine how many jobs you have to take, along with how long you have to go to school, in order to become the PR Director for an NFL team. You probably had to write an endless amount of dissertations that involved very intelligent vocabulary in order to make it to where...
A.J. Smith finally admitted something that fans of the San Diego Chargers have known for years. They are just happy to hear that he knows it as well.
After yet another disappointing loss to begin another disappointing season, Smith came out took responsibility for the struggles that continue to plague the Chargers.
“We have some outstanding, talented players on this team and some...
After Monday Night's debacle, Charger fans were pretty upset, and rightfully so, but one man in the Charger front office thought that fans were exaggerating just a tad.
Bill Johnston, director of public relations for the San Diego Chargers, wrote a post on Chargers.com telling fans to "Take a Chill Pill" and just calm down.
The note started off like this:
Director of Public Relations has a certain mid-level ring to it. That's Bill Johnston's title with the San Diego Chargers. And for some reason Director Johnson was allowed to post on open letter to...

Nine years into his career, Chargers fans and NFL fans alike are still trying to figure what to make of Philip Rivers. His on field intensity has been viewed as both extreme and at times arrogant. He will forever be compared with two time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning because of the swap of both players in the 2004 NFL Draft.
His first two seasons were spent on the bench behind...
The Chargers were embarrassed by Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos with an historic comeback after the Chargers led 24-0 at half and went on to lose 35-24. Well, apparently the embarrassment turned to anger and restlessness, which is hardly unexpected of any fanbase after a collapse like that. Chargers P.R. director Bill Johnston took to the team’s website with a post entitled...
