Even the greatest teams are only a handful of disastrous plays away from missing the playoffs entirely. We’ll prove it. In fact, the 2010 San Diego Chargers already did.

  • Special teams are part of the game, like it or not. If those Chargers had special teams units that were so horrific that they made statistically the best offense AND defense in the league end up at 9-7, then they were not a great team at all, let alone one of the "all-time greatest teams." And it sounds like it was their own fault, for letting the leader of their special teams units leave. Neglecting special teams has a long history of undermining great teams and coaches. The 2010 Chargers are nothing new in that regard, even if a particularly obscene example of it.

  • If the NFL ever wants me to take it seriously, they will have 82 game seasons and 4 rounds of best of 4 playoffs. 16 games? That might be an NFL season, but that should be the number of playoff wins to earn a championship like hockey, a real sport.

  • I remember that season, but it wasn't anything special... Practically all Charger teams through their entire history have been more or less the same, and I imagine other organizations feel the same way... - Annually and perpetually, one of the few most talented teams because the Chargers seem to draft well and identify talent. But, the Chargers also have never kept their talent, maybe because they feel they have someone at least as talented in the wings or can be obtained for cheaper. That ignores the problem that no matter how talented the newcomer is, there is a transition and adjustment period. The league is almost always filled with ex-Chargers who go on to successful years after leaving the Chargers, very few are cut and can't find a home elsewhere and shine. - The Chargers are always flawed. Often differently from year to year. It's not usually the coaches' faults as they're usually pretty talented, too but for whatever reason players don't always perform as expected... A star performer won't deliver in the clutch. A reliable player suddenly fails at the worst moment. The video highlights lack of blocking and tackling at the beginning of the season, and the team obviously fixed that to finish strong.... But true to Chargers' history too little, too late. - Special Teams usually has been a strength of Chargers teams which makes this one season so surprising. Every year, usually the Chargers are at the top of the special teams rankings. Until the current era, Chargers teams had always been exciting and one of the favorites for good TV ratings. The Chargers have usually been at the forefront of offensive strategy from the minds of sid coleman, don coryell, and on the arms of quarterbacks like fouts and rivers, complemented by hall of fame receivers and runners since the 1960's. But, every team is marked with a tragic flaw.

  • This video is the epitome of the "Yards equals good" fallacy. You can gain tons of yards when you are losing in garbage time, and you can give up fewer yards of your opponent always has great field position. Matthew Stafford has always put up huge numbers... Were the Lions any good?

  • Soooo this is such misleading BS and why “statistics” can be interpreted a billion ways!! They said they had the #1 best offense in the league that year then explain to me in their 7 loses their offense scored 14, 20, 27, 17, 20, 13, 20????? Besides the 27 that offense is garbage! Especially if your special teams is giving up quick punt returns for TDs punt blocks and etc. Which means you have more time to score! It all depends on what your going by saying “best offense” “best defense” and they are going by “yards” which is such a BS misleading statistic to rate offense/defense. I could say statistics show, out of all humans, usually the bigger your hands are the better you can read. You know why thats accurate? Because babies and little kids cant read or read well. See how misleading statistics can be unless you actually know what your talking about

  • The 42000:1 comment is bs. Blocking for the punter and rushing the punter aren't random. Actually, no part of special teams is random. The Chargers were so bad on ST's that the squandered their offensive and defensive dominance. That's not bad luck. It's bad coaching and poor roster depth.

  • It is so stupid that #1 offense and defense are measured by yards and not points. They were #2 in offense, 77 points (that's 4.8 per game) behind the Patriots, and #10 defense in points (Patriots were #8). One of the best teams of all time? They were a talented team, but they weren't even the best team that regular season statistically. The Patriots were.

Even though he had a couple great players around him (including the late Vincent Jackson, may he rest in peace), the Chargers could never quite pull together a good enough team, save for this 2010 squad... and then the special teams unit blew it all to hell. Damn shame.

  • Youd think if this number 1 rated offense was so good they wouldnt be consistently losing these games by 1 score for it then to be blamed on 1 or 2 special teams plays. Not saying what is presented in this video is wrong but i hate the metric of judging how good an offense is just based off of yards. Take the cowboys this year for the first 5 weeks when dak was playing. That team had so many yards of offense especially in the pass game but the offense truly was not that good they were getting blown out in games and just started getting loads of yards when the game was lost. I dont think this chargers offense was truly the best in the league if they couldnt get it done when it mattered

  • Honestly after reevaluating this video, I don't feel sorry for the 2010 chargers AT ALL... 1. They made the beyond boneheaded decision to keep Nate kaeding, the choke artist who had cost the chargers many games since 2004... 2. If they were such a great team, then please tell me why they not only struggled, but completely FAILED to beat the abysmal 2010 raiders even once?? 3.For such an 'AMAZING' offense, they sure as hell lacked any consistency to score when it's needed most. The jury is starting to fall apart ,on the 2010 chargers being sympathetic.
