A Reluctant Goodbye to Shaun Phillips

Shut Your Mouf! - USA TODAY Sports

With former OLB Shaun Phillips moving on to the Denver Broncos, fans of the San Diego Chargers are left to contemplate the void he leaves behind.

As the weekend rumbled to a close, Chargers fans began to accept the news that D.J. Fluker, Manti Te'o, and Keenan Allen were set to be a part of the team's future, whether they liked it or not.

What slid under the radar was the news that part of San Diego's past was moving on:

In terms of his on-field production, I'll leave it to the capable writers/analysts at BFTB to tell you why Shaun Phillips is gone. As for me I can only look back with a sense of nostalgia.

Shaun Phillips brought to San Diego an unparalleled commitment to butchering the English language while simultaneously pumping up his own ego. His ability to ignore the red squiggly line beneath a misspelled word will not be forgotten by this fan.

Good luck, SP95.
