@boltrunner Agreed. But I'm not also confident in Oliver as well. Seems that many offensive plays were designed to use Matthews abilities, so it may not work for Brown. I hope Oliver can get the job done with our first unity but let's not forget that even LT wouldn't have success running behind Ohrnenberg and Troutmann.
We beat Seattle but can we beat Buffalo? It's to be seem... their running game is insane as well as their D.

Hey Ross, guys, what a game this team put it together yesterday!
I'm still celebrating ... Gates was awesome, stepping strong in every bit of space needed; Rivers seemed to have a surgical precision in his passes (interesting to watch him under pressure). Ingram and Freeney were amazing. Our kid Verrett looks more and more as the real deal. And special teams appears to just needs a good returner to be considered the best unit of the league.
However, it's still a long way to go. IMHO the real challenge for this team is to keep focused every game not only against the best "hyped" teams. It's time to move past such this awful tendency.

@Lucab12 100% better than last week fiasco. However this team doesn't seems to have any depth at all...
As for Pagano I'm not convinced he's the guy this team needs on command of D.

@sdjeff @Lucab12 I'm not alright with the result as well.
I had enough of Pagano defense... its harmless. Welcome to 2013!

@Lucab12 Well Ross, it's second preseason game but I m already fed up (pissed of in fact...) of Pagano's sweet-soft-flag Defense.
I don't see any evolution at all with regard pass rush. The guys are still missing tackles. Any read-option QB scores against this D. I've seem already to want him out.
It's time for a change.
Hi Justice guys,
I'm going to agree with Acee this time: he pointed out that the Chargers has finally some depth at RB, WR and TE positions.
Still, I'm concerned about Defense: it doesn't seems so improved as we thought it'd be (or it needed to be). I understand its preseason and so on but the second string Cowboys in their first drive marched all the way up gaining almost 50 yards until they were stopped. Do you think Freeney might be cut?
Overall I was impressed on how Rivers first drive was so well executed and also so fast.
Anyway, let's wait for Friday clash against Seattle to see what's up to this team. D played well against their 1st offense last year but our offense didn't. It appear to be interesting to see how it progressed from now on.

Let's us know about your book publish progress. I'd be glad to have one copy.
Comments of M. Floyd work on camp so far are enthusiastic. Same to Jerry Attaochu as well. I'm still intrigued the way D. Brown should be used this year (goal line situations? Not sure...).
Anyway J. Winter R.I.P. and the season is just around the corner.
Ps: Any word on the best place for a seat in stadiuns (whether the Q, Baltimore, or Miami?). I'm planning my - finally! - first time to see the Bolts. It might not be in SD but perhaps in Miami or Baltimore. Best!

Hi Ross. It's good to read your articles again.
Please let me informed about your book, right?
As for the Chargers what are your thoughts on the signing of Brandon Flowers? Despite all competition in the roster related to Flowers position (CB) I'm not sure whether this is a sign of opportunity or despair... but I'd also add that no CB can play its best without an efficient pass rush which is an area this team needs to improve as well.
I'm still concerned about our depth at Offensive Line and an absolute absence of a legit NT (would a 4-3 scheme benefit the players SD currently has on its roster?).
At the offensive side of the ball I don't see how Brown and Matthews can share touches but I'm intrigued on how McCoy will rely on them (Brown on goal line situations?).
I expect a better defense and Verrett learning in his first year. Attaochu might benefit for play behind Freeney (which I don't expect he'll last till October...).
Well, let's just see what happens. New Season, New Hopes!

it's unbelievable we are talking about divisional round and Denver. After all those wasted years (A.J.S and N.T...) I'm over the moon when seeing this guys playing wuth such great heart instead as that "win or loose we don't care" attitude they had in Smith/Turner era.
Pretty happy with the way this D is playing when it most matter. Hopefully they can keep the desire and play nasty the whole game against the Broncos on Sunday as well.
This team is doing enough to win but they still need to improve their redzone TD ratio. A lot of missed opportunities all long the season where they could get a TD instead of a FG and get the job done.
But in the end this might be one of those seasons to remember in a positive way.
Fluker was the best tackle of his class.

Well done Chargers what a W!
I'm not so optimistic for Bengals match up but it's not my fault. I'm just tired to see this team dropping winnable games and winning against all the odds as it may be the case for the last five years.
Both contests (Bengals and Giants) are tough, and our secondary can easily transforms anyone of us into the next QB superstar. Let's hope for the best.

@sdjeff Where do I sign this? Awesome analysis! This whole shit is wrong in SD.
I Bet Asamougha and Revis are better than invisble twins Cox and Marshall.
Liuget and Reyes are having careers years... but for worst.
Who the fuck Cam Thomas think he is? We need a NT now!
McCoy is too conservative in play calling... he's remind us Norv Turner...
V-Brown: you should read the game plan before step in the field. It'd do wonders for your game. And just one more thing: you're allowed to catch the ball ok?
Hire LOVIE SMITH for this D.

@Lucab12 @Osaka17 same feeling here: They're experts in giving hope and let us down. I'm expecting the unexpected (like blowing a 30 point lead or something).
1 year ago on This Will Bring Me Ruin Though I Suppose It's Pleasing
@Osaka17 I saw Jets x Pats game yesterday. Even with that perfect OL protection around Tom Brady, those Patriots receivers sucked all the way! I'd be curious to see what TB12 would do behind a guy like Clary or Harris... (and please: I'm not comparing him to PR17, so don't get me wrong).
@Osaka17I still enjoy Rivers passing game, specially when he is adequately protected. As for now, considering he has being submerse into Turner system for years and now is learning a new playbook, I rather prefer to wait. Still, considering his OL is weak and the receivers corp are not that talented I really miss something he can't deliver: mobility.
@sdjeff @Osaka17 Perfect comments. Pagano's D is the real deal... for flag football. Hire Lovie Smith today! What this front office are waiting for?
I became a Chargers fan when I first visited the US and stopped accidentally (yep...) in the city o San Diego which we absolutely loved that me and my wife decided to extend our stay in there. The year? 2006. Guess what I did? We went to Q, saw that team in September.
Since that time the Chargers became an obsession to me. I went to Chicago in 2011, lived there, studied there and so on. But I always followed the Chargers. And then we went back to Brazil. In FB we have a group of SD Chargers Brazil fans. There are more or less 07 hardcore fans there who watch every single game, no matter of what happens (myself included) and the rest are band wagoners.
Monday game started almost midnight for us. I had a law and economics work to do for Tuesday... guess what happened? I decided to stick with the game. Thankfully I was fortunate to "sleep" for 2 hours before get back to work. Today one of my friends of that FB group who happened to be in the exactly same situation as mine (and made the same stupid decision to watch the game...) said to me "we deserved it; how could we be so naive? It's the same old team goddamned!"
He's right. Teams'blew out another lead without fight. What we saw Monday was total absence of secondary and pass rush on D: please hire Lovie Smith now!
As for offense that was a joke. No quality at all in team's receiving corps, a banged offensive line, an a doubtful running in the second half that makes me wondering on whether the run blockers were exhausted or Wade Phillips made the right adjustments to stop the running game.
Fact is: you can teach players your playbook, but you can't teach'em heart. And this Chargers team doesn't have it at all.
@Lucab12 You're right on AJ's tactics... let's hope that this won't happen again....
1 year, 8 months ago on There Ain't No Point In Looking Behind Us, No
I'm more impressed with the acquisition of Ken and Frank other than Mike itself. I guess the front office made the right moves on what was available on the market. Arians was heavily speculated but somehow I didn't think he was the right guy for this job (maybe because he looks like Norv a lot...). Hopefully McCoy will be able to keep his players focused more than Turner.
This 2013 new regime looks like they'll rely more on draft than before. Still, it's not clear for me if this way they manage to rebuild this team from draft has to do more with save money or constitute a new philosophy. I"ll have to wait till the season begun to find out.
