It's been a long roller coaster ride for Chargers fans. From beating New England in Foxboro, to losing to Miami at home, to ending Indy's undefeated season, to missing the playoffs. Now comes this:

ESPN.com - NFL - Brees has dislocated shoulder, may need surgery

If Brees does need surgery, then the Philip Rivers era may indeed begin in 2006. It seems sad, but it looks like someone's gonna get unceremoniously turfed by next year's training camp. It's going to be an interesting offseason for San Diego.

Given that he'll have eight months of recovery time, I wouldn't call this the death knell for Brees as the Chargers starter quite yet. I think there's a lot better chance you'll see Brees behind the centre next year than there is of seeing Schottenheimer on the sidelines.

San Diego would be incredibly stupid to fire Schottenheimer. Given the insanely difficult schedule the team had this year - they only played five games against sub-.500 teams, and the only one of those games that they lost was in Philly, when the Eagles still had both McNabb & Owens - it's a wonder that they even did as well as they did this season. Even the iconic coaches would struggle a bit with the schedule the Chargers had.

And Rivers is the one who needs to be on the way out. Brees has proven himself, and it doesn't appear as if this injury is all that serious just yet.
