Chargers and SDSU football teams have given San Diego little to cheer about early in the 2013 season.

The state of San Diego football at both the pro and major college level is a pretty sad one as I sit here and type this. And it’s disappointing, because San Diego is one of the better football cities around. We deserve better here; a better pro/college stadium, and better teams that the fan base can be proud to support.
But we’re being seriously shortchanged here in “America’s Finest City.” Our pro team is apparently back to its maddeningly foundering ways with a star running back who the team doesn’t seem to trust with the ball. And our FBS college team….well, as much as I love my Aztecs (and yes, I am biased and not at all afraid to admit it), what’s happening out there on the field of play is nothing short of embarrassing. I expect much better from this program at this point in the program’s post-Chuck Long development.
Can’t trust star RB
In 2010, then General Manager AJ Smith traded up 16 spots in the first round to take Fresno State running back Ryan Matthews with the 12th overall pick in the NFL Draft. Matthews was talented to be sure, with plenty of speed and big play potential. Durability, however, was a major question mark.
