The San Diego Chargers have a 3-4 record this season after starting the 2012 season at 2-0. San Diego got off to a similar start during the 2011 NFL season because they were 4-1 in their first five games.
San Diego would go on a six game losing streak after their 4-1 start, but the silver lining to this was that none of the teams they lost to had a losing record at the time of defeat.
San Diego finished last season with a 4-1 record in their last five games which was a positive, but had they won one of those six games, they would have made the playoffs.
San Diego had an 8-8 record, but the 8-8 Denver Broncos owned the tiebreaker.
The embarrassment this season started with a loss against the New Orleans Saints who had a 0-4 record. It continued against Denver who had a 2-3 record. San Diego blew a 24-0 halftime lead in this game and lost 35-24.
In what was the most humiliating defeat so far, San Diego lost 7-6 to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Cleveland entered Sunday’s game with a 1-6 record.
San Diego’s losses were against teams with a combined 3-13 record at the time of these games.
Denver leads the AFC West with a 4-3 record and currently owns the tiebreaker over San Diego with one game left between them in two weeks. San Diego’s season is headed down the drain because of their losses to New Orleans and Cleveland and the way that they loss to Denver.
It will take a huge effort from every coach and player to fix their problems.
