San Diego Super-Chokers

Well, I have to say that was a bit disappointing.

After a Cinderalla season I didn't expect a heartbreaking ending like this. I'd like to think I've grown up over the past 20 something years, but I found I haven't changed much from that 8 year old who watched the Chargers lose in the championship game against the Raiders (and then again the next year to the Bengals).

I've never believed that you can boil a close game down to one or even two particular drives but sheesh, Marty, you had momentum and were driving the ball down the Jets' throat. Why did you pull up on that last drive?

There's quite a bit of squawk about it on the Chargers newsgroup, of course, and sportswriters noticed it as well.
