Chargers-Chiefs Final Score: San Diego Chargers embarrassed at home by Kansas City Chiefs, 33-3

If there was any doubt that the San Diego Chargers were a bad football team, and that Mike McCoy needs to be fired, it was erased by the performance at Qualcomm Stadium on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.

This wasn't just the worst loss of the season, or the worst performance of the Mike McCoy era by the San Diego Chargers, but this may be the worst loss in the history of the franchise.

You think I'm joking, but I'm not.

First of all, when all of the talk should be about the celebration of LaDainian Tomlinson, and the touching speech he gave at halftime while having his number retired by the will be about the Chargers looking pathetic in getting steamrolled by the Kansas City Chiefs.

This could potentially be one of the last home games the team ever plays in San Diego, and what fans were served up for entertainment was 3.5 yards per play by the Chargers offense and two hilariously bad turnovers. Not to mention, a defense that couldn't stop the second-string RB, third-string RB, or a defensive tackle who decided to take a shot at playing some RB.

Instead of showing some fight against the Chiefs, the Chargers fought with each other. With the best player in franchise history looking on, waiting for his time to go into the Hall of Fame, his future Hall of Fame former teammates (Philip Rivers and Antonio Gates) got into a spat on the sidelines that included the phrase "I'm going to beat your ass."

At the end of the day, the details of what happened in the game are almost irrelevant. The Chiefs did whatever they wanted. The Chargers players quit about halfway through the third quarter and it was obvious. There was nothing or nobody that was redeemable on the San Diego side. It's time to admit that this roster, this coaching staff, and this front office has led us to this point. The Chargers are 3-11 in their last 14 games, and that's not a big surprise. They are what their record says they are.
