There was a thought before the season started that a late season match up between the San Diego Chargers and New York Jets could have playoff implications. Instead it's a game with two teams that coaching issues, quarterback issues and overall underwhelming play all season long.
The New York Jets enter Sunday's game unsure if their head coach, general manager, starting quarterback and back up quarterback will all return next season. This comes after the Jets' postseason hopes were dashed last week when they lost to the Tennessee Titans. In that game, Mark Sanchez threw four interceptions while his back up, Tim Tebow, threw one incomplete pass and still finished with a higher quarterback rating than Sanchez. As a result, Jets' third string quarterback Greg McElroy will get the start Sunday in place of Sanchez, leaving open the question of whether the Jets have already moved on from the former USC quarterback.
The San Diego Chargers find themselves in only a slightly more enviable position. We're pretty sure their head coach, Norv Turner, and general manager, A.J. Smith, won't return next season while franchise quarterback Philip Rivers has combined for 55 turnovers in his last two seasons. Rivers is likely still San Diego's man going forward, but his leash may get a lot shorter with a new head coach and general manager around next season.
