Remaining NFL teams worthy of our trust against the number

The San Diego Chargers did not qualify for the postseason, but I felt like I was watching them during the divisional round playoff games.

If you’ve ever gambled, you’re familiar with the Chargers of the last six years. Norv Turner on the sideline. Philip Rivers under center. A duo that was never worthy of your trust and would never deliver when you thought you had them solved. With Turner — who was fired at the conclusion of the regular season — and Rivers at the helm, you could always rely on mistakes and letdowns.
