Aztecs appear well positioned no matter how Chargers drama shakes out (UPDATED)

 

Check this out: Qualcomm Stadium is awful and decrepit.

Okay, there are great memories that go along with the place. Aztecs fans have had the pleasure of watching Kabeer (and Akbar) Gbaja-Biamila, Marshall Faulk, Donnel Pumphrey Jr., La’Roi Glover, Kassim Osgood, Ryan Lindley, Kirk Morrison, Darnay Scott, and in their D-I infancy, Brian Sipe and early Air Coryell.
