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.

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.

Good luck, SP95.
