I can't believe the San Diego Chargers fired Marty Schottenheimer now. SI.com says it best: This should have been done a month ago, when they still had an offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator that could have made decent (at least) head coaches.
Instead, they're both gone now (Cam Cameron to Miami, Wade Philips to the Dallas Cowboys), and so's Marty. Where does that leave San Diego? Likely pleading with Bill Cowher to stop his retirement short and come back to the NFL to win another championship. (That's how I'm guessing the pitch goes.) Of course, Cowher's a Marty guy, so that's probably not happening anytime soon. I guess Art Shell's available again.
It's really amazing, the state of professional football in California. The Raiders are absymal, the 49ers are getting better but still are clinging to the bottom of the bowl, and now, the should-have-been Super Bowl champions are coachless, with few legit prospects on the horizon. And L.A. still doesn't have a team.
