Tom Fudge: San Diego Charger fans, right now, are still working to exorcise troubling visions of last second touchdowns and bad calls by referees. But time will pass, and we'll get over that.

Several years ago, the Chargers announced that Qualcomm Stadium needed to be replaced for the team to continue to be a financially viable NFL franchise. Agreements were reached with the City of San Diego, regarding the team's Qualcomm lease.

But it looks like that's no longer the case. Mark Fabiani has been holding a conversation with San Diego about the search for a new stadium.
