It appears as though the city of San Diego is preparing for the inevitable move of their beloved franchise––the San Diego Chargers––to the city of Los Angeles. Near the very end of yesterday’s 30-14 victory over the Miami Dolphins, head coach Mike McCoy made sure long-time quarterback Philip Rivers, wide receiver Malcom Floyd and tight end Antonio Gates received their well-deserved standing ovation in what is likely the team’s final game in the city of San Diego.
Qualcomm Stadium (or simply just “The Q”) has been the home of the Bolts since 1967––it is formerly known as San Diego Stadium (67-80) and Jack Murphy Stadium (80-97). There have been a number of fantastic memories at that stadium, which includes five Chargers playoff wins since 1980.
With the move to Los Angeles looking more and more likely by the day, the city and the franchise’s fan base is slowly coming to terms with the move, as evidenced by yesterday’s finish:
