Fan reaction: Have the Chargers played their last game in San Diego?

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) - What should have been a euphoric day for the Chargers and their fans Sunday was instead a game that ended with nostalgia and a sense that some larger chapter was coming to an end. 

Quarterback Philip Rivers couldn't conceal his emotions in talking about a stadium full of fans and a photo of safety Eric Weddle drew lots of talk on social media. Weddle, whose contract expires at the end of the season, was splayed out on his back, lying on the Chargers helmet at midfield after the game.

Among those who returned to the stands to sign autographs included Rivers, Weddle, wide receiver Malcom Floyd and head coach Mike McCoy.

The reaction from fans was equally as emotional. Some couldn't hold back tears, while others couldn’t fathom San Diego without the Chargers. 

For a legion of fans, cheering for the Chargers was a way of binding families closer together, passing a passion down from one generation to another. For others, the road for the Chargers and what lies ahead seems pretty clear.
