Chargers by the (Jersey) Numbers: #53

Pessimism Breeds Realism... Or Does it Just Breed Pessimism?


Over the years, many people have told me that I have something of a negative outlook, and that I need to think more "positively."  My attempts at explaining this personality trait away as being...

Chargers by the (Jersey) Numbers: #50


A good one!  All hail!  In fact, as we get into the 50s, we’re gonna start to see some great battles among some pretty good linebackers.  But you’ll have to forgive the 50s for starting out with...

Chargers by the (Jersey) Numbers: #49

Only four players have ever worn #49 in Charger history… and NONE since 1984!  I can’t honestly say that one player stands out above the others.  More like one nudges out the others. The "Nudge" ...

Chargers by the (Jersey) Numbers: #48

Again, the Golden Jersey committee is saddled with several players who played below potential, or never had much to begin with.  And one who fell short because of off-the-field issues. The...

Chargers by the (Jersey) Numbers: #45

If you’re a fan of the Coryell years (and what self-respecting Charger fan isn’t?), you might have a soft spot in your heart for one particular 45 on this list, but the winner is an obvious...


Non Sequiturs

Because I'm fond of my witty writing (even though so few other people are) and because I have some free time, I just wanted to jot some thoughts down from yesterdays game and see if they generate...

Chargers by the (Jersey) Numbers: #44

As was the case with #43, Chargers that wore #44 either wore it for one season or at least four.  But the ones that wore it for multiple seasons were so… non-descript that it makes choosing the...

Chargers by the (Jersey) Numbers: #43


  Wearing #43 for the Chargers either got you a quick ticket out of town after one season, or it bought you a seat on the bus for at least four seasons.  Nothing in-between.  There’s also very...

Chargers by the (Jersey) Numbers: #42


Until a few weeks ago, 42 was shaping up to be an interesting battle between a couple of longtime veterans.  I guess it’s a good thing it took me a while to get to it so one them would implode. ...
