Southern California- Are The San Diego Chargers Headed To The Playoffs?

Helmets for the San Diego Chargers are laid out on the equipment table.  A big southern California thank you to the Chargers for the VIP tour of the training facility

San Diego Chargers In The Playoffs?

Will Southern California fans of the San Diego Chargers cheer on their team in the playoffs?

Southern California was filled with cheers as the Chargers and 49ers football game rolled over to overtime, and the bolts surprised EVERYONE by taking it all the way. The overtime field goal by Nick “Crabcakes” Novak left a lot of San Diego Charger fans in disbelief and standing on their feet cheering! Can you believe it? They pulled it off! But what does that mean for their playoff hopes.

It was Over When…

On second down with 10:11 remaining in overtime, the Chargers sent Nick Novak out to win the game. Confident and poised under pressure, Novak’s perfect 40-yard field goal capped a comeback for the ages at Levi’s Stadium. (Chargers.com)

From the way all of the Southern California Charger fans, and football commentators, were shouting and cheering you would think that SD had made it to the playoffs. Well, not so fast.

The San Diego Chargers still have another game this weekend against Kansas City Chiefs. If the Chargers can keep up the good work, and take a win over KC THEN they can celebrate a playoff spot. So while it was rather exciting to see SoCal bring it this weekend, there is still work to be done.

NFL’s Chargers Are Staying In San Diego, For Now

american flag chargers flag tailgaiting qualcom

As if there was any real doubt, but the San Diego Chargers are staying in San Diego! The football team announced last night that they have no intention of going to Los Angeles, at least for the 2015 season. But, between you and me, if San Diego wants to keep the Chargers as part of the Southern California Lifestyle, they should start thinking of ways to get a new stadium.

Chargers Training Center in San Diego, CA

Statement of Mark Fabiani

Special Counsel to the President of the San Diego Chargers

December 16, 2014

On February 1st of every year since 2007, the Chargers have been eligible to terminate the team’s lease for Qualcomm Stadium. And each year since 2007, the Chargers have announced that the team will not exercise the termination clause and instead continue to work toward a permanent stadium solution in San Diego.

Today, the Chargers are making the same announcement that the team has made each year since 2007: The team will not be exercising the lease termination clause and will keep working to find a publicly acceptable way to build a Super-Bowl quality stadium in San Diego. Calendar year 2015 will constitute the team’s fourteenth year of work on a San Diego stadium solution.

(Chargers.com)

14 YEARS of looking for a solution. That is crazy. I must admit that Jack Murphy Stadium, now Qualcomm, holds a special place in my memory, and it is not a terrible stadium, but come on now, 14 years is way too long to sit around wand wait for change. Get it together San Diego!

The Chargers have been in San Diego for almost all of their existence, and with so many season ticket holders here in Southern California it is nice to see that the Chargers want to stay, at least for now.
