BEING ENGLISH I DONT REALLY KNOW ALL THE TEAMS AND WHERE THEY ARE NOW BUT I DO REMEMBER THE L.A RAMS AND ERIC DICKERSON HE NEVER GOT THE RECOGNITION HE DESERVED DUE TO WALTER PAYTON PLAYING AT THE TIME FOR THE BEARS BUT HE WAS SURE A CLASS ACT
How are San Diego Chargers games like? How do I get there?
FYI the Charger vs 49er game is a Thursday Night game with a 5:20 kickoff.
The best way to get to the stadium is by trolley. It leaves you right at the stadium gate. This is especially true for a Thursday night game during XMAS shopping season. Stores will be open late. There are lots of malls on Friars Road and in the vicinity of the stadium. That combined with the normal rush hour commute will make driving insane. I expect the stadium parking lot to be almost full by noon. On game day they sell all day trolley passes for $5. Parking at the stadium is $20 and, if you're not familiar with traffic patterns, it takes hours to get in and out of the place by car.
As far as resturants, from downtown, you'll need to transfer at Old Town Transit Center to a different trolley line. One block away is one of the best pizza and Italian food resturants in town. Pizza Bella features home made Italian food made from Mama Bella's recipies. During the day their courtyard is open for outdoor dining. It's one block from the Old Town trolley stop. My suggestion is have a late lunch at Pizza Bella and head to the game around 3:00 PM. Gates open 2 hours before kickoff.
Another great downtown place to eat is Kansas City BBQ. It's where they filmed the bar scene in Top Gun. It's right next to the Seaport Village trolley stop. Inexpensive and great food. Their beef brisket sandwich plate is one of my favorites.
Are the San Diego Chargers a good team to root for?
Chargers fans are fair weather fans, so stay away from that team. Go with a team that has a solid fan base, good owners and has a tradition of winning. Steelers , Cowboys , 49ers , Raiders all have great traditions and fantastic fans plus are multiple Super Bowl winners.
Why do the San Diego Chargers always choke in the playoffs? why do they always choke in the most important?
The reason I'd say is more that they get too impatient. They were just at the point of going far in the play-offs then they fire Schottenheimer. Turner gets them close to that point again and the fans want him fired. The GM did the right thing in keeping Turner. You have to have consistency. At the end of 2005/beginning of 2006 I remember a lot of Colts fans wanted to see Dungy hit the door because they thought he couldn't win the big one. Then later in 2006 he wins it. Sooner or later after you make the play-offs enough times you are going to win it. If I have a team and coaching staff that gets me to the play-offs year after year I'm going to stick with them because they'll eventually win it. The Chargers did the same thing with Brees. They had a great quarterback and got rid of him because he didnt' win soon enough for them. Now look at where he's taken the Saints.
The Giants were ready to do the same thing with Eli at the beginning of 2007. They talked about getting rid of Eli. Then later that year he wins the Super Bowl.
When you get close and you spend all that time developing talent and getting the team to gel, don't break it up. Keep developing it and let it finally win.
How many more San Diego Chargers do the Jets need to beat the Colts in the playoffs?
Its a FACT that the Colts have been to the Superbowl twice as many times as the Chargers have. Jk i really do hope the Colts play the Chargers for the AFC Championship for two reasons A) so people can stop talking about us losing to you B) I believe were the two best AFC teams
