Hmm, the game could probably easily be played somewhere other than Qualcomm, some college field or something.
I don't know how many Chargers staff have been personally effected by the storm but I've heard Gates and Tomlinson had to leave their homes.
A week off for them to tend to their families and keep tabs on their houses and the whole deal would be totally understandable. But then what? The NFL would have to reschedule the game, no? Maybe push the game back a day or two or something and play it in Tempe on Monday? OR just tack the game on to the end of the season?
Looks like the Chargers bye came a week too early.
