1999 2001

The 2000 San Diego Chargers season began with the team trying to improve on their 8–8 record in 1999. Instead, the team lost its first eleven games before their first and only victory of the season (by one point). It is the worst record of any Chargers team in history.

The Chargers earned the 1st overall pick in the next season's draft, which they would later trade to the Atlanta Falcons for a package of draft picks and wide receiver Tim Dwight. This package included the fifth overall pick, which was used to select running back LaDanian Tomlinson. Punter Darren Bennett lead the league in average yards with 46.2.

San Diego had a historically inept running attack in 2000; their 1,062 total team rushing yards (66.4 per game) is the fewest number of rushing yards by any team in NFL history in a 16-game season. [1] For perspective, the strike-shortened 1982 NFL season -- which was a nine-game schedule -- included thirteen teams who rushed for more yards than San Diego did in 2000.
