    A team would actually have to be pretty desperate to move to LA. Philip Anschutz, the owner of AE, the developer of the Farmers Field project adjacent to the Staples Center, wants a piece of the team. There are cities that will build the stadium to attract a football franchise and in LA the owner has to give up a piece of his team for the right to play there. Let's say that the least valuable NFL team wanted to move to LA. According to Forbes, that would be the Cardinals, worth a mere $600 million. http://espn.go.com/sportsbusiness/s/forbes.html Let's say Anschutz Entertainment demands a mere 20% for the right to move onto their land in LA. That's $120 million less that the Cardinals would be worth to their owners out of the box. Moving to LA would have to increase the value of the Cardinals by more than $120 million for the move to make sense. And remember, that same owner might be offered a free stadium to stay in Arizona or move to a friendly city that would actually build the stadium for free just to get the Cardinals.

    So, the answer is the move will happen only when an owner is desperate enough.

    Well, here are the teams that have too good of a situation to move: Patriots, Jets, Giants, Packers, Steelers, Raiders, Colts, Texans, Cowboys, 49ers, Eagles, Browns, Broncos, Bears, Saints, Chiefs, Ravens and Redskins.

    The teams that could move, but have no particular reason to: Seahawks, Vikings (stadium situation is resolved), Lions, Falcons, Panthers, Bills, Dolphins, Chargers, Bengals, Titans and Buccaneers (I toyed with putting it as a candidate).

    Teams that are candidates to move: Jaguars, Cardinals and Rams.

    SAN DIEGO CHARGERS is most likely to move to Los Angeles

    Last week: The Chargers have their first winning streak (two games) since winning three straight from Sept. 25 to Oct. 9 following their 37-10 win over the Buffalo Bills. Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers continued his resurgence, completing 24 of 32 passes for 240 yards, 3 touchdowns and no interceptions. Chargers running back Ryan Mathews also had a big day on the ground, rushing for 114 yards on 20 carries.

    Lol. The packers have 0 chance of going to LA. I honestly don't think any team is. La will just have to deal with not having a team.
