Whit, I've decided that Th. night actually means something but the Bolts need to finally play like they have nothing to lose. They've got three games remaining, all against division rivals. Baltimore and Miami will probably not go 1-2. However, they could. But the Chargers need to play these last three games like they are their own private postseason. As April Powers told her husband Kenny on Eastbound and Down earlier this year, it's time to fuck some shit up.

So Whit, what happens next year? We miss the playoffs for the 4th straight season. Is McCoy going to make better decisions in game in 2014? He runs Mathews 3 times in a row yesterday but not in DC.

What sucks Jeff is that even if they shocked Denver on Thurs, they'd still lose a tiebreaker to Miami and Baltimore is streaking. It's always too little, too late.

What sucks Whit is that we can honestly say that Norv would have 5 wins at this point. If you credit McCoy for Rivers' improvement, OK... I don't think you do though. McCoy's turtling cost us at least the Wash game and probably the TN too

True, but I can't get over the fact that McCoy continues to be gutless and stupid. If Rivers hadn't hit Tutu, we could have chalked up last week as another game he blew with conservatism or bad in game decisions. He took that penalty just as he did in the Raiders game and the opposition converted on our shit secondary.

Sorry you had to see it, Jeff. McCoy is really annoying me. I don't necessarily think two punts within the 40 was the problem all in itself. But playing to tie at the half, accepting that penalty and getting run over all day...
Sad that the sense was the game didn't matter. It should have.

Just finished watching the NFL Replay version of the game. Here's a couple of observations:
Keenan Allen is so good that I am already worried about him leaving and becoming a VJ-like diva.
That drive at the end of the first half by Rivers was huge.
The throw in the end zone that should have been picked was followed by a stand in the red zone by the defense that was also enormous.
Pagano ripped Jahleel Addae a new asshole after he let up that long pass on a 3rd down blitz. Simms (who I wasn't listening to on Sunday since I turned off the sound) said that our spacing was fucked up.
It was nice after the Titans game to shock someone else at the end. We'll see if it means anything. Enjoy your Turkey Day and I will talk to you Saturday.
Addae also almost got teabagged by Stuckey in Jacksonville.

According to Michael Gehlken
The early sense is Chargers tackle D.J. Fluker (right knee) is OK.
Big win, we'll see what it means. Certainly, McCoy/Wiz decision to play soft on the second down with the lead could have doomed us. KC had the chances with 2 near game-sealing picks, but we made them pay. Rivers' taking a sack on the final drive could have been fatal as well.
Do we win if KC doesn't lose two pass rushers? Doesn't matter. The Chargers didn't get the benefit of the doubt on that one PI call. They are at least relevant (as Whit says) after Turkey Day.

Great minds think alike, Whit. Guess I beat you to it.

What's sad Jeff is that if we are so worried about this game, look at the other teams they have left to play.

Jeff, I got a lot of complaints. Here are just a few:

I have a lot of problems with McCoy/Wishenhunt. They weren't aggressive when it mattered. When Novak missed the field goal, I said that's what we deserve for settling for 3. This team is still too much about not quite enough and too late to matter.

He pats himself on the back for saying the schedule will be too tough in the second half but admits that he should have taken control during the last 22 seconds. It's commendable that he didn't throw anyone under the bus and all.
DC, don't get me wrong. I think Canepa, Acee, Jerry Magee are all front running windbags. If you watch my Tweets I have essentially told Acee not to pull a Howard Cosell if he thinks he's bigger than sports. We didn't make him take his job. Maybe be thought Merriman, Jackson, and AJ would be his ticket out. I don't know if McCoy is the answer. He's done some great things, especially on offense. Rivers was the one who opted for the fade on 2nd down. But I am just saying that the goalline sequence is inexcusable. I don't care what they admit publicly, but they were scared to win. That was too Norvy (or Martyesque) for my tastes.
See that's where we differ. Does Mathews deserve NOT to get the rock down there? At this point they should be using him there. His "role" isn't commensurate with his sins at this point. Someone else will figure out how to use him but while he's on the roster they'd better get the most out of him that they can. That seemed to be the plan during the two weeks that led up to that DC disaster.
DC: Dan the Man looked a little tired and not up for a chat. He posed, signed and laughed when my wife joked he's the reason her Sundays are gone. You can see Ian Eagle walking away behind us. I started to mention that we had lost the TN and OAK games with him announcing but hoped the streak would end Sunday. Obviously I was wrong. I DO NOT believe that the bullshit calls on the 1 yard line are acceptable or part of growing pains. If any sane person knew to run down there, I don't see why a head coach with any experience at all can't figure it out. New JIC to follow

I feel like I did after the fumbled snap in Arrowhead. Maybe they rebound against Denver (they had Green Bay in the first example), but if they are going to keep giving games away I would rather they lose. I don't want to hear anyone else say that they figured we were only getting 7 or 8 wins anyway. This team has played well in some areas but coaching decisions (Accepting the penalty in Oak, running on 3rd and long in TN and constantly getting cute on the goal line) have been a running problem. Seriously, cut Mathews right now if you aren't going to use him in a spot like Sunday. You ran him in Jax when you couldn't get a TD and seemed pleased by the results. I'm talking about McCoy obviously. I could live with running and failing but not that chickenshit series.
It's not like the butcher chopping off his own fingers, Whit. It was like him dropping the cleaver and letting the turkey get away. We didn't even try. Rivers should not be given two run-pass options only to look panicky on 3rd. I was at the 18.5 second 7 point Knicks/Pacers debacle and at least Reggie Miller had to hit those shots. The Bolts totally took the Skins off the hook and I have no faith they won't do something again.
Laura McKeeman is a former Miss Florida. BTW, Whit, the last train to Jacksonville, not Clarksville. This was what I had in mind
