SAN DIEGO - If you're still not over the Bolt's playoff loss to the New York Jets, you're not alone.

"I was looking forward to going all the way this season, they had the talent," says Keith Phillips.

"We were devastated.  It was so hard to watch it," says Kirk McGinty.

"I just cannot believe that Nate Kaeding missed three field goals," says Mark Nunn.

Some San Diegans are even calling it a San Diego Sports Curse.  Even the encyclopedia website Wikipedia is keeping track of how many times San Diego has said, "there is always next year."

"Honestly I'm starting to think it could be true, says Raymond Podlete.

"You know maybe there is but I'm not going to call it yet, hopefully lightning will strike next year," says Doug Johnson.

Clinical Psychiatrist Dr. Haywood Zeidman actually saw patients on Monday upset over the team's loss.

Zeidman says statistics prove just how much people care about football.  "If your team goes into the playoffs and wins a playoff game, homicide rates go down in your community, suicide rates go down in your community.  It can be very serious -- it can be very important.  Should it be?  Probably not."

While the loss may sting for a while, Charger faithful say they're in it till the end.

"365 days a year, Charger fans -- we were there when they were 1-15, we're there with them today," says Keith Phillips.
