Is Chargers win a farewell gift?
SAN DIEGO — If this was the Chargers' last game in San Diego, it ended with a victory and a surreal postgame scene.
Not long after defeating the Dolphins in a matchup of last-place teams, Chargers standouts Philip Rivers, Malcom Floyd, Eric Weddle and coach Mike McCoy came back out to greet several thousand fans who don't want their team moving to Los Angeles. Floyd is retiring after 12 seasons.
Rivers worked his way around the stadium signing autographs — even on two signs critical of team chairman Dean Spanos.
"It was a special day, if it is the last one," said Rivers, who passed for three touchdowns to Danny Woodhead. "I told the guys before the game, they've been playing football in this town before any of us were born, and there's people who're going to be at that game today that were coming to games before we were born. But we get to close it out, if it is the end."
Spanos refused comment as he left the locker room with his two sons, who now run the team.
