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.
