Let's be honest, there are no winners for the San Diego Chargers.
We all thought it couldn't get worse than the meltdown on Monday Night Football against the Broncos. Well, it has.
Coming off a bye week, the Chargers were ready to start winning again. There was one major problem: They're still the San Diego Chargers. It's just been a confusing season to say the least. How can a team be this bad?
Yes, San Diego is 3-4 and we're only halfway through the season, but there are just no positives to take away from this team. Closest thing to a positive is the defense, who has performed well, yet hasn't consistently sacked the quarterback or force takeaways. As for the offense, it's just a mess.
Robert Meachem can't catch a pass, Philip Rivers has no trust in anyone, Antonio Gates isn't involved, Vincent Jackson is in Tampa Bay and so on. The future of this franchise is bleak. Until there is change, there is no hope with the Chargers.
There's no need for everyone to keep saying "fire Norv" and "fire A.J.," because it's not going to happen. I completely agree that this team will continue to degrade with these two in the franchise, but will they be shown the door? Probably not.
Seeing this team continue to fail over the years is so heartbreaking it's unbelievable. Through Week 8 of the NFL season, including in their loss to the Browns, the San Diego Chargers do not have a winner. Right now, until there is change, the entire team is a "loser."
Let's take a look at what's being said on Twitter.

Terrible. Just terrible. Didn't think it could get worse than the Denver loss.— Marty Caswell (@MartyCaswell) October 28, 2012
The only thing worse than the Chargers losing is the stubborness of the organization to not make change when change is necessary. #FireNorv— Rich (@rich_roberts) October 28, 2012
Norv Turner and AJ Smith should be jettisoned together. Seriously, it's time to start anew in San Diego #chargers— Steve Kim (@stevemaxboxing) October 28, 2012
We are now one of the worst teams in the NFL, but good job letting Norv and AJ Smith keep their jobs and be a mediocre team again #SDvsCLE— Alan Dabdoub (@SoyBienFresco) October 28, 2012
The Norv Turner / AJ Smith Era in San Diego ended today in Cleveland. Regardless of when it happens, it's happening.— Nick Kostos (@TheKostos) October 28, 2012
Maybe it's time to take another "Chill Pill."
