New, comments

John Gennaro and Ben Higgins go over another blown 4th Quarter lead for the San Diego Chargers, this time to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and ponder the team's future in the final month of the season and beyond.

NFL: Miami Dolphins at San Diego Chargers Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

The San Diego Chargers are a terrible football team.

Sure, they prepare well for each game. Also, the team looks good on paper to start each season. However, by the end of each game, and by the end of each season, they are terrible.

So, here we sit once more, wondering if we should root for the team to lose so that they end up with another Top 5 draft pick or if we should, instead, root for that less than 1% chance that the team could pull off a miraculous run into the playoffs.

I know which side I am on (Team Tank), but Ben Higgins is tougher to persuade. On today’s Bolts On Tap, he actually laid out a scenario in which Mike McCoy’s squad could end up in the NFL Playoffs. He’s insane.
