    The debate about whether or not San Diego should build a new stadium that can be used by the Chargers (among many other things) is going to be heated until San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s task force comes to a conclusion. It’s easy to see the validity of arguments on both sides of that discussion.

    What is not being questioned is the fact Qualcomm Stadium is not a very good place to see a football game. During the December 7th game against the Patriots on NBC’s Sunday Night Football, broadcasting legend Al Michaels even said traversing the halls at the Q is like, “walking through the ruins.”

    His broadcast partner Cris Collinsworth feels very much the same way. In Arizona at a Super Bowl XLIX event on Tuesday, NBC 7 asked Collinsworth his opinion on the San Diego stadium situation.

    You will notice in the video above, he did not pull any punches.

    "It's probably last or next to last depending on where you want to rank it with Oakland. I don't meant to be offensive, but that's a fact," said Collinsworth.
