The Upside of Down: How I Learned to Stop Being Mad and Love Losing


Yes, it's over.  Call it a day.  Sorry that it had to end this way.  The Chargers -- runaway division winners before the season even started -- have fallen 3 and half games behind the undefeated Denver Broncos in the AFC West.  Yes, the season's over.

But wait a second... there IS good in losing, Charlie Brown.  Losing, thy name is Norv Turner, and your ticket out of town has officially been stamped!  No more of his sly Houdini-esque escapes.  No more pathetic, improbable onside kicks to save his sorry butt.  No more ridiculous late-season runs to make us all think he's a decent coach and this is a good football team.  Even a 4-0 December can't save him now. 

And for those of you who think it can, for those of you who think that, like a crack-addicted son, he can cry at Dean Spanos' shoe-tops and say, "It was the injuries, Pa.  That's what made me bad.  Just give me a little something to tide me over.  One more time,"  for those of you Norv-apologists, just wait until next week when the Chargers lose to the Chiefs!

If losing is the only way to give this franchise the proper shake-up it needs, then I say lose on.
