Turner tunes out talk - Kevin Acee
It seems that for many of the people who will read this, an apology is in order. Sorry, but Norv Turner is going to keep doing his job.

Calling Interference on Pass Interference - Bill Barnwell
Since he's the offensive wizard in San Diego, Turner also deserves scorn for his play calling during the Chargers' final drive. After they took over on their own 20-yard line, the Chargers advanced the ball to the Denver 35-yard line in seven plays with four passes and three runs. That placed them on the very edge of Nick Novak's range, and once they crossed that red line on television, Turner decided to shut the offense down.

Sunday’s five least valuable players, Week 12 - MJD
Philip Rivers didn't even dip into the giant bag of interceptions that he's carried around with him all season, but he just wasn't good enough against the Broncos. In the fourth quarter and overtime, the Chargers had five opportunities to get a touchdown that probably would've given them a win. They never came close.

Looks like it's time to rebuild the Chargers - Jay Paris
There are thousands of reasons the Chargers have equaled last year's loss total with five games remaining. The most obvious: they aren't very good.

Novak inconsolable after missing big kick - Dan Hayes
A day that began with promise for Nick Novak ended with the Chargers' kicker doing his best to hold back tears.

San Diego Chargers: Moving On - Bill Williamson
Second-year running back Ryan Mathews ran for 137 yards on 22 carries Sunday. He ran hard and made several big plays. Plus, he didn’t fumble, which has been a problem this season. Mathews needs to be a focal point down the stretch.

Audibles at the Line: Week 12 - Football Outsiders
Maybe it's just me, but should a skinny post really work against a single high safety? The Chargers have deficiencies that go well beyond Norv Turner, and they've now frustrated me to the point that unless they have a ridiculous turnaround this year, I'm ready to blow up the team and organization.
