SAN DIEGO -- Coach Mike McCoy still doesnt have any real answers for why his San Diego Chargers keep blowing big leads late in games. Wholesale Panthers Jerseys .He does know the answer to a question thats on the minds of a lot of angry fans.Asked Monday if he thought his job is in jeopardy, he said: No. Im coaching my tail off every day and Im the head coach.And the Chargers are 1-3, thanks to their latest pratfall.They blew a 13-point lead with just under seven minutes to go and lost 35-34 to the previously winless New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Fumbles by running back Melvin Gordon and wide receiver Travis Benjamin gave Drew Brees the opening to lead a comeback against his former team.The Chargers blew a 21-point, third-quarter lead at Kansas City on opening day and lost 33-27 in overtime. After routing Jacksonville in their home opener, they blew a late lead at Indianapolis and lost 26-22.Then came the meltdown against the Saints.The resulting fan discontent comes at a bad time. The Chargers, whose attempted move to Los Angeles was rebuffed by fellow NFL owners in January, are seeking a $1.1 billion public handout for a new downtown stadium via a ballot measure calling for an increase in the hotel occupancy tax. The Chargers have once again threatened to move to Los Angeles -- where they could join the Rams in a stadium slated to open in Inglewood in 2019 -- if the measure is rejected.Besides the fumbles, there were plenty of other errors by the Chargers, like Benjamin letting too many punts hit the ground and a sloppy three-and-out drive on the first possession of the second half that McCoy called a disaster.Theres 53 minutes of some good football and then unfortunately we turned the ball over twice there to give them a great opportunity to do what they did, McCoy said. Youre furious when you watch because you see all the positives, but then theres the blowups. We can put it on two plays, but thats not the only reason Theres a number of times during the games. Like I told the players, thats every week. Theres so many things we can do better.The Chargers have lost 15 of their last 20 games and are 24-30 overall under McCoy.Up next is a road game against the rival Oakland Raiders. The Chargers were swept in the AFC last season while going 4-12 overall. They have lost 10 of 11 road games dating to the last game of 2014.Also coming under fire from fans are general manager Tom Telesco and the president of football operations, John Spanos, who is the grandson of owner Alex Spanos.Asked if Telesco and Spanos are getting him the right players, McCoy said: Yesterday we had every opportunity to win the game. Weve got the players to go out and win. Weve got to do a better job not turning the ball over, not making certain mistakes that we made at critical times in certain games.---Follow Bernie Wilson on Twitter at NFL websites: and Cheap Panthers Jerseys . -- The Sacramento Kings are set to become the first major professional sports franchise to accept Bitcoin virtual currency for ticket and merchandise purchases. Cheap Panthers Jerseys Authentic . "I wrote 36 on my sheet at the beginning of the game," the Cincinnati coach said, referring the yard line the ball would need to be snapped from.http:///...-aaron-ekblad-jersey . Vokoun departed practice on Saturday morning after discovering swelling in his thigh. He was taken to a local hospital where the clot was revealed. The club announced the surgery following a 5-3 exhibition loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Minnesota Timberwolves have suffered some tough losses already this year, but none might have been harder to stomach than their late-game collapse on Saturday night against Houston.The young Timberwolves led the Rockets by 12 points with just over two minutes to play. That lead was quickly squandered and Minnesota eventually lost in overtime.It was a game the Timberwolves had in their grasp but instead turned it into their 19th loss of the year.That was unacceptable. We shouldnt have lost that game, guard Zach LaVine said after Minnesotas collapse at Target Center. We cant just let that happen. We played too good of a game to let that slip through our fingers.The loss overshadowed another big night for second-year center Karl-Anthony Towns, who put together his second 40-point game of the season. Towns had 41 points and 15 rebounds, but James Harden and the rest of the Rockets still found a way to rally against Towns and the Timberwolves.Now Minnesota (7-19) will try to forget about Saturdays loss by hosting the Phoenix Suns (8-19) on Monday night in Minneapolis. Like the Timberwolves, the Suns have struggled to string together wins through the first quarter of the 2016-17 season.Phoenix enters Mondays matchup having lost two straight and six of its last eight. The Suns dropped a road game Saturday at Oklahoma City 114-101.As Thunder star Russell Westbrook has done to so many other teams, he put up a triple-double against Phoenix. His 28 points, 22 assists and 111 rebounds were all reasons the Suns suffered a double-digit loss. Cheap Adidas Panthers Jerseys. Phoenix players couldnt help but be impressed with the impressive statistics Westbrook keeps producing.Youre frustrated with the loss. Youre out there trying to win, Suns big man Tyson Chandler told The Oklahoman after Saturdays game. But Im a student of the game. Ive always respected what he did, regardless of the numbers hes putting up. Hes putting his will over the game.Minnesota and Phoenix have the second- and third-worst records in the Western Conference, respectively. While the Suns are just 4-11 on the road this season, the Timberwolves havent been much better at home. Minnesotas record at Target Center is 3-10 after Saturdays overtime loss.The two teams met in early November in Phoenix, with the visiting Timberwolves leaving Arizona with a 98-85 win. In that game, a big fourth quarter by Minnesota was needed to claim the victory.Andrew Wiggins scored 25 points in his first matchup with the Suns, and Towns had another double-double of 22 points and 10 rebounds.If Minnesota wants to secure another victory over Phoenix, the Timberwolves will have to have a short memory and forget about the way Saturdays game against the Rockets fell apart in a hurry.We just let one go, thats it, Towns said Saturday. We just have to move on to the next game and get ready. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
