San Diego Chargers Daily Links: October 19, 2012

Christopher Hanewinckel-US PRESSWIRE

Bill Johnston must have gone and lost his damn mind.

Chat wrap: Chargers need to run more - Bill Williamson
Leland from Denver City, Texas: Any chance we see the Norv Turner everyone spoke about at the beginning of the season that "loves to run the ball?" I'm tired of seeing Rivers drop back 40 times in a game we are leading by double digits. BW: It's all about getting Mathews more involved. I agree. That has to be a focus after the bye.

GM A.J. Smith not hiding from truth - Bill Williamson
"I take full responsibility for the present mess this team is in at this point in time," Smith said. "The construction and direction of this organization is on my watch. In the next 10 games we will either rally and see a slow, steady rise from the ashes to a division championship – or the beginning of a new era in Chargers’ football."

Take a Chill Pill - Bill Johnston
Time to take a chill pill. No one knows what will happen this season, yet alone the next game. That’s the beauty of the National Football League. I don’t know, you don’t know, no one knows what’s going to happen.

A.J. Smith's Address: Moving Forward, Not Back - Ricky Henne
"We have 10 games left, and the last time I checked the standings, it says we are tied for first place with Denver," he said. "Right now our team is reflecting back on our games played this season, and we are refocusing and resting. Then we will return to get ready for our next game."

Philip Rivers sees bigger problem than play calling - Michael Gehlken
"It's just a matter of stepping up a little more (in the pocket), getting the ball out a little sooner, taking a sack maybe, and then you live for another day," Rivers said. "I think it's just managing the situations, me, as opposed to high risk.

Chargers agree to terms with Danario Alexander - Michael Gehlken
The former Rams wide receiver announced via Twitter on Thursday he has agreed to terms with the team. Alexander is long on both physical ability and injury history, making him a high-upside flyer for a pass offense that could use the depth.

Playing name game with Norv's successor - Don Norcross
Men I’d rather see coaching the Chargers than Norv Turner: Oregon’s Chip Kelly: Would be a bold, innovative stroke, meaning he won’t even be vetted by Bolts.
