Chargers keep Smith & Turner despite no playoffs

Despite missing the NFL playoffs for the second straight year, an 8-8 record and fan uproar over an underachieving team, San Diego Chargers president Dean Spanos says he is keeping head coach Norv Turner and general manager A.J. Smith.

The Chargers won on the final game of the season to end up 8-8 after keeping arch-rival Oakland from the playoffs with the win.

Turner is 49-31 in five years with the Chargers, 3-3 in the playoffs.

Shawne Merriman and his “Lights Out” show closes in San Diego

The San Diego Chargers have cut dies with another of their star players.

Shawne Merriman, the linebacker known as “Lights Out”, and one of the most feared players in the NFL, was placed on the injured reserve list because of a calf injury and a “minor injury designation” on Wednesday. By putting him on that list, San Diego has to release him, once he’s healthy.

The Chargers could resign him, but general manager A.J. Smith has not been a Merriman fan because he seems to be more of an off-the-field celebrity than on-the-field star.

The “Lights Out” nickname stems from Merrriman’s ferocious hits. He had 39 1/2 sacks in his first three seasons. He’s only had four in the three seasons since that time due to a variety of injuries.

Merriman, who has been on the trading block for some time, has five tackles and no sacks in 2010 during limited duty.
