Turner disappointed: "I have worked very hard this season to turn a Pro Bowl quarterback into a bad joke. Ryan has clearly done the same with Sanchez - though he needed to bring in a little Tebow drama to glam things up. Sunday would have been The Big Showdown: Fumblebum vs. Fumblebee. But instead, Ryan benches Sanchez and brings in some sort of basically competent backup? Where's the sport in that? It's not like either of us are going to the playoffs this year. Why not have a little fun, give the people a show?"

Fans irate: "I paid good money for what I fully and reasonably expected would be a comedy of errors," says longtime Charger fan May Zokist. "Between Rivers' 15 fumbles and 15 interceptions this season, and Sanchez's 12 fumbles and 17 interceptions, I had every right to look forward to a proper greased pig chase, one where the ball goes squirtin' out this way and that and everybody goes jumpin' after it, whoopin' and hollerin' and carryin' on. Dogpile!"

I'm going to miss our Coach-Provocateur.

They're probably going to bring in some plain old coach who wants to do nothing but prepare the team for victory. Boring.

Then again, maybe something bigger than any coach is at work. Maybe somebody shouted "Macbeth" in the Chargers' theater and now the curse is here to stay.

Maybe we're doomed to eternal sports mediocrity in San Diego.
