Threats of the team moving have pushed fans away locally, while the product on the field has produced shoulder shrugs on a national scale. At least the Chargers still have those iconic, powder-blue uniforms!Whats goodWell, theyre still here. With the very real possibility of the Chargers moving to Los Angeles last season, team chairman Dean Spanos kept them in San Diego, at least for the time being. Aside from that, this roster got some love from fans -- the 89th-place ranking is the teams highest -- much of which is likely directed to Rivers and cornerback Jason Verrett, one of the teams most promising players. If all goes right, the Chargers should be better on the field this year. After going 4-12 a year ago, theres a chance this team could compete for a postseason berth.Whats badThe Spanos family should thank their California neighbors for keeping them from being the most-disliked ownership group in the NFL -- only the 49ers and Rams rank worse. Turns out fans still hold a grudge against the family, who attempted to move the team north to hated L.A. Chargers head coach Mike McCoy was also dropped all the way to 106th (down 23 spots), likely due to a somewhat milquetoast approach to managing a game. Meanwhile, the stadium experience in antiquated Qualcomm Stadium, which includes video boards that harken back to the days of Tecmo Bowl, is considered the worst in the NFL.Whats newThough San Diego offers one of the better ticket values in the NFL -- their pricing is slightly below the league average -- the Chargers are actually down 40 spots in bang for your buck, thanks to that four-win season after two straight winning records. That does not bode well for a team looking to woo fans to the stadium in order to create a home-field advantage. The Chargers announced attendance of 52,165 for the teams home opener (in a stadium that seats 72,000) against the Jaguars was the lowest number for a home opener in over a decade.Next: Cleveland Browns?| Full rankingsOsta Nike Air Max .
