The supposed "curse" of the 1994 San Diego Chargers has at least one member of the team concerned for his own life ... after Junior Seau became the 8th player from the squad to die.
TMZ spoke with former Chargers nose guard Reuben Davis -- who played for the Bolts from '94 to '99.
When we asked about the curse, Davis couldn't have been more blunt -- "It's kind of like a Final Destination movie ... I feel we might be cursed and it's scary."
The 1994 Chargers had an amazing season -- winning the AFC playing in the Super Bowl ... only to lose to the 49ers. Since the loss, 8 members of the team have died under the age of 45.
"Ever since then it has been downhill," Reuben says ... adding, "At the end we didn't win the Super Bowl and now this, it's just scary and I have no answer."
But, Reuben thinks the surviving members of the team can break the curse if they stick together ... telling us, "Every year the Chargers have an alumni weekend ... maybe we need to reach out to the remaining players and all agree to get together as a group."
