I will never forget watching Leaf bounce a football in front of my seats all afternoon after he was benched, completely isolating himself from the coaches and teammates.
Ryan showed no interest in winning, or learning how to. It was all so easy in college, and Leaf just could not deal with the fact that NFL defenses were much more sophisticated that the ones he had faced in college.
Leaf went 4-14 in his 18 starts for the Chargers.
In fairness to Leaf, he didn't study under Don Coryell or Marty Schottenheimer, he was force to deal with the Chargers all time worst head coach,
Gilbride destroyed both Leaf and Stan Humphries in the short time he was the head coach.
To this day, Gilbride has never taken responsibility for throwing Leaf to the wolves, with almost no training or guidance.
Who know how Ryan's career would have turned out if he had been tutored by Bill Walsh or Bill Cowher. At least he was nice to Nikki, his Charger Girl wife at the time...
I am sure I left off some names, feel free to contribute your own Chargers worst quarterback memories...
