Chargers Overconfident?

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune writes today that the San Diego Chargers players may have approached the season with a little bit too much of a cocky attitude.
But there is a pervading feeling in the locker room that the Chargers were doomed in large part by overconfidence.

Well, duh.

Those of us who know a lot less about football than NFL head coaches are supposed to know have been well aware that Chargers players had an unwarrantably high opinion of themselves since, oh, maybe the second game of the season. We have observed repeatedly that the players wearing lightening bolts have seemingly expected opposing teams to faint at the mere sight of their awesomeness. Opposing teams have been somewhat less impressed, and have whupped up on that awesomeness in a thoroughly embarrassing manner.

So how is this attitude problem, and its persistence for no less than twelve weeks, not a massive coaching failure? How, in the face of such a total failure to correct such horrendous attitude problem, is Norv Turner assured of another year as head coach of this team?

Inquiring minds want to know.

    well, this inquiring mind wants to know why the &^%$# players didn't get a clue at some point? The players have some culpability in this too, as well as the coach.
