    I thought he made some questionable calls but for the most part I don't blame him for the loss. The Chargers just failed to put the Pats away when they had every chance to do so. Now I have to go to work tomorrow and listen to all these stupid Pats fans up here!

    That lost timeout really came back to bite Marty and the Chargers in the *** in their last posession.
    I couldn't believe it when he challenged that???!! What could they have possibly seen that they thought could be overturned? That definately hurt them.

    Mabye he didn't think 4 running strides and possesion constituted a 'football move.'

    I don't think that 'one' play lost it for them though. It certainly didn't help their situation, but wasn't the sole reason for the loss.

    Chokenheimer.

    You mean run 4 wides?? The Chargers do that then the Pats easily close off the sidelines and keep everything in the middle of the field....the clock can't be stopped....game over.

    This game was a combination of Marty and the inexperience of Philip Rivers. That last drive with a minute to go they wasted WAY too much time getting to the line and getting the play off, that falls on the QB. The challenge was bone head decision for sure. The muffed punt wasn't Marty's fault, he didnt make the player drop it. Also that DL for the chargers who head butted the Pats player on 3rd down and got flagged for 15 yds and kept the Pats drive alive and they got 3 more points out of it.

    It was just a bad day all around for everyone except LT, but in the end to many mistakes killed them.

    That's a tough call setting my Steelers hat aside for a minute and looking a this as a perspective coach for both teams... Wow, that is a damn good question Cleve!

    Both teams are Super Bowl ready although the Steelers have taken a step back with now needing an OC. Both have good QB's, both have good defenses, both have awesome running backs with one of them coming off an MVP season... if I was all about security and keeping my job I would say the Steelers job would be best. However, if I wanted to get into the coaching position do my thing, try and win a quick SB or really suck and get fired and hope to land somewhere else then I would have to say the Chargers

    Update: I heard on ESPN News on my way home tonight that Marty will be back for one more year however, he did turn down a 1 year extension.

    ESPNews reports San Diego Chargers head coach Marty Schottenheimer will be retained and coach the team for the 2007 season. Schottenheimer declined a one-year, $4.5 million extension that included a $1 million buy-out option for the team.

    So he's giving it another go then eh? Im glad for him, for all his shortcomings and coaching blunders the guy got real close this year with a very young team. Maybe he'll learn from his mistakes ?

    well ok maybe not...
