Poll: Which Non-Playoff AFC and NFC Team Have the Best Chance Next Season? - Chris Pokorny
There are several other teams I could dismiss, but here's the one I'll pick: the San Diego Chargers. I don't know what was with them this past year; they should have easily run away with the division. They are always an inconsistent team, but I still think they have a few of the elite players necessary to make a run. Once they get in to the postseason, they can frustrate a team like the Patriots.

Rodney Harrison calls Rob Gronkowski out for dancing after the Super Bowl - Doug Farrar
"I guarantee you this, if Willie McGinest, Tedy Bruschi, Larry Izzo, Richard Seymour or myself had been at that party, [Gronkowski] probably would have got his head rung. There's no reason for that to happen.

Car Problems - Randall Munroe
Or if you replace your car, we'll be happy to set it on fire again so you can take another crack at getting that shot.

Offseason promises to be wild - John Clayton
What they need to do is get back to the playoffs and show progress with the roster. Turner and Smith are paired together. I'm glad they get one more chance. Turner is a great playcaller and has a great quarterback (Philip Rivers). Smith is a good evaluator of talent. Putting a new general manager above Turner would only lead to changes in the roster that might not fit Turner's philosophy. If you are going to bring back Turner, you needed to bring back Smith to see whether they can get back to the playoffs. If they don't, they are gone.

Mailbag: English's days numbered in San Diego? - Bill Williamson
I think this will be English’s last chance in San Diego. He has played poorly and he has been injury prone. San Diego may draft a pass-rusher with the No. 18 pick so the team will move on. But even so, I think English will get one more shot.

2012 NFL Playoffs Predictor - Nik Bonaddio & Keith Goldner
All that said, the Chargers play in an extremely weak division and should be able to come out on top, barring the critical turnovers they committed this season.
