The San Diego Chargers are underachieving again
I am sure that no one expected San Diego to repeat their regular season success in 2006, but they should not have lost three of their last four games.
The Denver Broncos also have a 3-3 record, but lead the AFC West after humiliating San Diego in the second half on Monday.
When the 2012 season started, only four teams had less salary cap space than San Diego. This has to make their 3-3 record heading into the bye week frustrating for Charger fans and the organization.
San Diego’s offensive line needs to work on improving because they allowed 18 sacks in six games. This is tied with the San Francisco 49ers for the fourth most in the league.
San Diego has to stop turning the ball over as well because they are tied with the Cincinnati Bengals for fourth in giveaways with 14. Philip Rivers has nine interceptions and has accounted for 10 of the 14 giveaways.
San Diego has a tendency to go through a bad stretch or bad stretches during the season.
The Chargers had a 5-5 record through 10 games in 2007 before finishing the season at 11-5, they were 4-8 in 2008 and finished the season at 8-8 and they started the 2010 season at 2-5 before finishing with a 9-7 record.
San Diego was the opposite last season because they started the season strong with a 4-1 record, but they lost six games in a row and fell to 4-7 before finishing the season at 8-8.
San Diego made the playoffs in 2007 and 2008, but did not make it in 2010 and 2011. These bad stretches happen too often and are not a recipe for success in the NFL because there are only 16 regular season games.
If San Diego does not go far in the playoffs, general manager A.J. Smith should be fired along with head coach Norv Turner.
