The Chargers have been under scrutiny ever since moving from San Diego to Los Angeles last week.
After 56 seasons as San Diego's pro football team, the move has reportedly not only upset loyal fans but also NFL executives.
Adam Schefter suggests the NFL already want the Chargers to "move back" to San Diego.
As much as the Chargers' move to Los Angeles angered San Diego, it angered NFL executives and owners just as much, if not more.
Since the move was announced, the NFL has been "besides itself," in the words of one league source. "There are a ton of owners very upset that [the Chargers] moved," one source said. The source added that the NFL wants the Chargers to move back, though nobody believes that possibility is realistic.
But some NFL owners and some league officials are still hoping, now that the move has been made official, that Chargers chairman Dean Spanos will wake up one morning soon, recognise this situation has been "bungled so bad," and take his team back to San Diego, where it spent the past 56 years. Again, the chances are at best remote that this happens.
But some owners and league officials are still praying that the longest of long shots occurs and the Chargers bolt back to San Diego.
The Chargers already had to scrap their new logo after it got roasted on social media and will be in competition with the Rams to win fans. If the NFL starts to struggle in Los Angeles, it's fair to say the owners will most likely blame Spanos.
