By: Al Terry

If you are looking for the best players in the NFL and football games that you will be talking about for days on end, then look no further than San Diego Chargers tickets. Chargers fans and football lovers alike know that they can go to a Chargers game and get some great football entertainment.

The San Diego Chargers play in the National Football League and are affiliated to the AFC West and the American Football Conference. The team plays its home games from the Qualcomm Stadium and currently has twelve Division titles and one Conference championship to its name. The Chargers have yet to win the Super Bowl.

The Founding And The Fearsome Foursome

The Chargers were founded in 1960 and were originally based in Los Angeles before they were shifted to San Diego in 1960. During the sixties, many fans bought San Diego Chargers tickets simply to see the Chargers' defensive line up. They were in fact the originators of the term The Fearsome Foursome which perfectly described their defensive set up at the time.

After the NFL merger in 1970, the Chargers faced some tough times. They lost their coach of ten years, Sid Gillman and though they were able to draft a number of good players, they were players that were on the way to retirement and in the final stages of their football careers. In 1978, the Chargers were involved in a memorable game with the Oakland Raiders called the Holy Roller game. This game is best remembered for the pass made by the Raiders side which many people believe was an illegal pass. The Chargers would ultimately lose but the game itself became a piece of NFL history. By now, the Chargers were at a low point but in 1979, the Chargers' fortunes began to change.

Close But No Cigar

In 1979, the Chargers turned their fortunes around by bringing in a number of victories, including an AFC title win, their first since the NFL merger. The team soon proved that it could definitely pull of some big wins and San Diego Chargers tickets were soon selling quickly in anticipation of a Super Bowl win. If there was a team that was ready to snatch the Super Bowl title, it was the Chargers.

Fans and the team alike began to grow more and more frustrated as the Super Bowl win became more elusive. The Chargers did however manage to win 12 Division championships and are certainly poised to try for the Super Bowl yet again. The fans and the high sales of San Diego Chargers tickets are proof that many people in the football world believe they can be the next big champions.

The Chargers are proudly represented by one coach and five players in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The names include Coach Sid Gillman, Lance Alworth, Dan Fouts, Charlie Joiner, Ron Mix and Kellen Winslow. So, whether you are a Chargers fan or not, you will always be able to appreciate a good game of football played in Chargers fashion.
