San Diego Chargers are Close to Being Eliminated From Playoff Contention
San Diego was officially eliminated from a chance at winning an AFC West title yesterday. The Lightning Bolts also saw their chances at capturing a wild card spot decrease with a loss to Cincinnati.
If Indianapolis and Cincinnati win another game or San Diego loses one more, the Chargers will officially be eliminated from playoff contention.
San Diego’s last playoff appearance happened in the 2009 NFL season, but they lost their only playoff game. San Diego’s last postseason win was during the 2008 season when they beat Indy in overtime.
San Diego has been on a decline since they lost in the AFC Championship game during the 2007 season. The Chargers won one playoff game in 2008, did not win one in 2009 and had a 9-7 record in 2010. San Diego had an 8-8 record in 2011 and best case scenario they will finish with an 8-8 record this season.
There were changes that needed to be made this year during the off-season, but the wrong ones happened.
Vincent Jackson led San Diego in receiving yards in his last three full seasons with the team. Jackson also led San Diego in touchdown receptions during his last two full seasons with the team. San Diego did not re-sign him during the off-season.
The front office chose to bring back Norv Turner for his sixth season as San Diego’s head coach even though the team is declining and A.J. Smith was brought back for his 10th season as San Diego’s general manager.
San Diego has a 3-5 record in the playoffs under two head coaches since Smith took over. These moves are three of the reasons why San Diego is close to being eliminated from playoff contention for the third straight season.
