The signs that you have an inefficient, money eating, environmentally wasteful and simply annoying running toilet are easily recognizable.

San Diego Charger's NFL Update!
Now the Fun Really Starts!
The first 6 weeks, including a bye week, of the 2011 NFL season have seen our BOLTZ streak to a 4-1 record and first place in the AFC West, but it's the next five games on their schedule that will likely determine whether we're as good as we think they are. Their first test comes this Sunday, October 23 1:00 pm ET with a grudge match against the New York Jets in New York. Just 2 short years ago, the then lowly Jets, squeaked into the playoffs and beat us at home by a field goal to put an end to our Super Bowl Dreams!
In all honesty, the Chargers haven't played anywhere near the level they're capable of and they'll need to kick it up a notch or two against these next 5 tough opponents if they plan on keeping their post season dreams alive. The Chargers spent their bye week getting healthy, but also spent time working on a few parts of their game that need improvement including scoring in the red zone, producing a more consistent running attack and stopping the opponent's running game.
Eric Weddle, the Chargers free safety, sums it up best by saying "Individually and collectively, we'll focus on the things we haven't been so hot at over the first five games and we'll come in and treat this week like it's the first game in an 11-game season. We're 4-1-0 to this point, but all that matters is what we do moving forward."
