Chargers bid farewell to San Diego with emotional final practice

The San Diego Chargers are officially no more.

The Chargers held their three-day minicamp this week at their old San Diego training facility. When Thursday’s practice ended, it was the last time the team would be at Chargers Park before their move to Los Angeles.

You can’t name a better playground game than capture the flag. In these practice facilities that NFL teams have nowadays, or even in their monster stadiums, you could set up one heck of a game.

Capture the flag is all about good strategy, but the variety of athletes who football teams have would make for an even more interesting game. Some coordination on who should be going after the flags and who could be a decoy, would force players to think critically in trying to outsmart their teammates.

Could you imagine if a team like the Falcons were playing among themselves? You’d think players like Julio Jones, Devonta Freeman, or Tevin Coleman would be the main flag capturers on the roster — until Vic Beasley or Deion Jones comes out of nowhere. Those skill position players are key, but you can’t forget how shifty the defense is.

Sure, there was some luck involved when arguably the greatest passer ever hits the free-agent market. But that shouldnt diminish how Elway was able to woo Manning to Denver above other suitors and accept a contract structured in such a way as to financially protect the Broncos in case the neck problems that led to his Indianapolis release proved career-ending.

Manning rebounded to enjoy three of his greatest seasons in Denver. The fourth was the most rewarding because it resulted in a Super Bowl win even though the head coach had changed and the Broncos were now being carried by a defense that Elway and his front office had built. Elways decision to hire Kubiak and fire Fox after an opening-round playoff loss for the second time in three seasons was justified.

The window on that era of Broncos football began to close following Mannings post-Super Bowl 50 retirement. It officially shut Monday when Kubiak announced his departure.
