Originally established as the Los Angeles Chargers in 1960, they were dominant in the old AFL, winning the title in 1963 and 1964. After having 14 straight seasons of missing the playoffs, the finally returned to the postseason behind long time quarterback Dan Fouts, with 4 straight berths from 1979-82. After another 10 poor years, the Chargers had 3 playoff berths in the mid-90s, having their best ever season in 1994, when the lost in the Super Bowl. The Chargers were hindered by poor teams, despite having good players, for many years afterwards. They picked perhaps the biggest bust in NFL history when Ryan Leaf was selected number 1 overall at quarterback. Finally turned it around in 2004, with their only playoff berth in recent years, behind incredible runningback LaDainian Tomlinson.
"The San Diego Chargers see their dream run come to an end. They are dismantled by San Francisco in the Super Bowl."

A professional football team that has super-human and invincible abilities in the regular season, but once the calendar hits January, the entire team is inflicted with a form of mental retardation that includes using your head to attack another player,thinking you are a soccer player and kicking red flags thrown on the field, missing kicks that a paraplegic could make, running up the middle for half a yard every 1st down, and any time type of choking known to man.

So much choking occurs at Qualcomm Stadium in January that a prostitute would laugh. Many health organizations no longer teach the Heimlich Maneuver, but rather, the Kaeding Remover. Supporting this team is comparable to supporting the local drug dealer.
Chargers Fan #1: Dude! The San Diego Chargers are going all the way! This is the year we go ALL THE WAY! We have the top offense and defense in the league!

Chargers Fan #2: Oh fuck...

Chargers fan #1: What? What is it?!

Chargers Fan #2: It's January now....

Chargers Fan #1: HOLY ^%&$

Chargers Fan #2: Let's hope Kaeding misses the flight....

Chargers Fan #1: He better.......because he fucking sucks.

A mediocre NFL team in the AFC West, Every time they make it to the playoffs they choke, Their best player is juiced, And their fans happen to be the softest in the NFL.
I mean c'mon, their colors are baby blue and yellow.
