But not really.
For the Chargers, a playoff appearance would only be a disaster because it would mean four more years of Norv Turner and A.J. Smith. And that's not good for anybody in San Diego. The best use of Turner's time would be as the offensive coordinator of the Baltimore Ravens. (And that really should be the top priority of the Ravens. I would try to bring him in for the playoffs if the Chargers do get eliminated and ultimately fire Turner.)
Undaunted, we will continue our look at those teams competing to have the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, no matter who the top dog is. And until we have a better name, we will continue to refer to this space as the Fans for Barkley.
