Whit, you think Rivers is really set in not resigning if they move? The only reason the Bolts make a shitty deal now is if they know they won't get anything in return for him. I say call his bluff

I also feel (since I am not a Padres fan) that all the hype surrounding SD's baseball team will make it easier for the Chargers to leave. Less people will care...that might be me tho.

If this talk of trading Rivers for the loser that sucked in the National title game is true, I don't know if even I can handle it.

Almost as funny as when I saw on Twitter that all Chargers should buy lottery tickets after Balt lost at Houston and Alex Smith went out. Then again, I know we weren't getting far in these playoffs.

Whit, the house always wins except when we are in the Super Bowl? Read the last comment.

Except Peyton got hurt against us and we couldn't do shit. Our old DC is the guy you are asking for tips from, sadly.

Just because we never got someone better than Clary doesn't mean Clary was any better than he was. I hope the offensive line looks different next year. This group didn't have a good 2014, to say the least.

Also, it only ended up that we were a game back of KC. But we won (barely) a meaningless finale in Denver while they lost to Oakland. I don't think it would have shaken out had we really been in the hunt. Losing to Cincy in 2010 would be like if we had lost in SF. We got a last shot this year and fell apart. No, we weren't that good to begin with but we should have beaten the Chiefs with a playoff berth on the line.
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Conversation @ http://justiceiscoming.com/chargers/the-start-or-the-end.html
Of course, I felt a lot of sympathy for Lions, Bengals, and Cardinals fans this weekend. After all, they are in the no rings club with us. I didn't watch much but the images of Jim Harbaugh in Balt. gear and Jerry Jones hugging Chris Christie were all I needed to turn the other way.
In 2010, we went into the game with seemingly no real chance to get into the playoffs with KC winning the division. Cincy was awful and yet we lost. Both Chad Johnson and Terrell Owens scored. We couldn't get in on the goal line with Mathews and Tolbert almost got paralyzed. Rivers tried to force a throw with the win at his back as the third quarter ended.
That year, our ST was the scapegoat. But neither O or D were worth their ranking. We lost TWICE to the Raiders that year.
I don't think we could have beaten Pitt this weekend. The Ravens blew a game in Houston but that was their only loss of the month after the heartbreak they suffered against us. The SF miracle was our ONLY win in December. Everyone is giving McCoy a free pass with all the injuries. Yet this team didn't beat anyone except Seattle in Week 2. They would have lost at Oakland and to St. Louis if their quarterbacks had been smarter.
We have finished 3rd (only ahead of Oakland) in both of McCoy's years. I wonder if we would have won a playoff game last year against a team other than Cincy.
I'm not suggesting that we vacate our playoff spot of a year ago, but I am saying that things might not be as sunny as some are making it.
Agreed. The storyline will be how the Chargers "stubbed their toe" against the backup. But the D played well enough. What is so sickening is that McCoy called the FG when we needed a TD. Yes, we got screwed on a lack to penalty on the goal line. But when you earn the calls... No runs called yet two in a row at the end? And to Brown with Rivers risking everything with the shit offensive line? He deserved better and clearly wasn't thrilled with the calls either.

DC I gave to also wonder why this team needs to dig itself a hole to play with such fire and poise?
Just like Buffalo in 08 and last year and like the Jets in Miami last year, Houston kept us alive. Hopefully Rivers can play through. This pic was genius. I knew that Denver played dirty.

I actually never hit publish on what was supposed to be up Fri. Whit, here's an addendum:
Chargers make the playoffs with a 10-6 record if any of the four scenarios transpires:1. Baltimore loses to Houston (Week 16)2. Cincinnati loses to Denver (Week 16) AND Pittsburgh loses to KC (Week 16)3. Cincinnati loses to Denver (Week 16) AND Cincinnati loses to Pittsburgh (Week 17)4. Baltimore loses to Cleveland (Week 17)If we beat SF, we will be alive regardless of what happens in Week 16.

Denver will NEVER be this vulnerable. Yet we couldn't do shit. Even Novak sucked. The D was great until it needed one more stop. Just like playoff game. They certainly don't deserve the playoffs.

Dark Side of the Mule
I'm pissed too and can't say I'm confident about winning against Denver. however, I guess I always have some blind faith that getting in will allow the unthinkable to happen. The decision to punt really was gutless. canepa was the one who compared Fouts to Rivers. Their stats (regular and postseason) are actually pretty similar.
4 months, 2 weeks ago on Conversation @ http://justiceiscoming.com/chargers/how-you-like-us-now.html
Antonio, Wright pretty much sucked although that one call on him was a little sketchy. Of course, Marshall was no better and Gilchrist hasn't been really good in that spot even with his pick last week. As for Allen, the story is that he's much more focused in practice. The Fluker fumble was awful but I'm amazed at how good Flowers has been. That tackle on the last play saved the game. He knew exactly where he was.
It could be like the 2009 Giants game--a momentum propeller. Of course, that season ended in a one and done but we need to get in first.

I survived the flight and the Bolts did too. Where's the comments?
It was nice to hear Acee take McCoy to task for taking out Mathews on the drive that ended in the pick. Of course, getting promoted to the Canepa level at the U T might make him feel secure enough to do so.

Whit, that's the original board of the show that was released. Im sure this version will be enhanced somewhat. Enjoy
Antonio, the training staff has come up. Usually studies show we don't have any more injuries than most. It's crazy that every time you read about Pagano not in a San Diego paper he's described as imaginative and creative. Guys can't tackle. It started in Oakland and really showed up against KC. Half of those first downs by Alex Smith weren't even on plays geared to go very far.
It's really disheartening. Sure, we are 5-3 and yet it's hard to imagine how we get to ten wins. Yes I also try to think for reasons to believe. Otherwise I would stop watching entirely.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Conversation @ http://justiceiscoming.com/chargers/your-gravity-fails-and-negativity-dont-pull-you-through.html
That won't do much for us this year.
Im in shock. I seriously cannot find any reason to have hope the rest of the way. I know Jeff mentioned that we'd have trouble matching up, but NO ONE could expect us to come out and play like this.
holy shit, Whit. I never thought they were capable of being this bad. Acee wrote that UT piece about the team not complementing each other, as in they cant score when the D is holding and vice versa. But this is ridiculous. Unless they pull out a miracle, I will have no confidence of a playoff run. They haven't stopped anyone since they "shut down" Manuel, Smith and Vick. Every QB since has had ages to throw and no one to cover.
@boltrunner the chargers chat on the u t today mentions a possible switch for Fluker.
I hate that the Miami game is so huge given our history but that's what a playoff game is anyway. Win or else

As I sit here with us down 14 points, I really wish Rivers had a running game or corners to help him. He deserved better. The fumble was iffy, but that's what happens when you play everyones favorite team. Fuck, when Manning was on Indy, it wasn't so hyped.
Marshall sucks, but I was pretty disappointed that Oliver couldn't make anyone miss or break tackles.
gotta agree with Posner on this one, that McCoy looked like a pussy at the end of the half. You have three timeouts. I know Allen dropped one because he knew he was getting hit. But don't pack it in
They have never seen Oliver in Denver, so that's good. But where is the pass rush coming from without Ingram? He was huge last December
We got our share of calls and luck before that drive but couldn't tackle for shit. Half of kc s plays were designed for short gains.
We didn't wrap up and now smith and cArr have torched us. Oliver was ignored second and third down but I don't know if it was as bad as dc. We would have surrendered the lead no matter what

Dont disagree with Charles' assessment that we don't have stars on D (besides Weddle), but need them to play better as a group
Agreed, Antonio. Hopefully the powder blues and home crowd will help. can't expect to take them all--but we do anyway
BTW, this really could be the best Dead show ever if you don't have the official release of it
6 months, 1 week ago on Conversation @ http://justiceiscoming.com/chargers/i-guess-they-cant-revoke-your-soul-for-trying.html
beyond field position, the Chargers had Oakland facing 1st and 20 and fucked that up. Rivers deserves this defense to make one fucking stop and they cannot. They were shitty even when both starting corners were in there.
6 months, 2 weeks ago on Conversation @ http://justiceiscoming.com/chargers/i-guess-they-cant-revoke-your-soul-for-trying.html
worst run defense I have seen in ages. They don't look like they want it--except Phil.
we need any kind of pressure on Carr. I don't like the idea of expecting Flowers or Verrett to always win their battles, especially when they've lost many today already
I guess Fluker actually is a go
Whole lotta Rivers...I'd trade it all for that ring.
6 months, 2 weeks ago on Conversation @ http://justiceiscoming.com/
Whit, you summed it up. That's why the crappy line play has me worried. However, they have protected Rivers far better than they have opened running lanes. last week, my wife came in to my panic room and I had the Rivers figure out and a Chargers bandana. The look of confusion on Sammy's face said it all. I would like not to be that wound up for once. I know we can't win every week and the year we almost did ended horribly. I'd just like to see the Bolts "take care of business" in front of a crowd that should be as loud as they were against Eli last season.
Thanks for the nice words, Mike.
6 months, 3 weeks ago on Conversation @ http://justiceiscoming.com/
Whit, we might survive but are gonna have another injury with Wright possibly suffering a sprained MCL. Flowers won't be able to skip too many games. Verrett needs to get right soon too

I spotted this here on LI yesterday. Thought you'd enjoy. I agree with you Whit and love your insistence in only commenting in the sponsored threads. I never know what piece you are commenting on and then I see it's one of the ones paid for by Blowgun ads.
No injuries, indeed.
Gonna post this week's installment today, but you you truly were the Pride Of Cucamonga

Agreed, Antonio. I hope to exorcise some DC demons from the stands in Buffalo Sunday against the undefeated Bills. can't believe Mathews will only be gone for 4-5 after his cart ride.
7 months, 1 week ago on Conversation @ http://justiceiscoming.com/chargers/seems-like-ive-been-here-before-fuzzy-then-and-still-so-obscure.html
I agree Whit that Brown is no thumper. Mathews back in five weeks is better than I thought and I know he won't be back next year. We need him now, tho. Oliver went to school in Buffalo though
7 months, 1 week ago on Conversation @ http://justiceiscoming.com/uncategorized/chargers-tickets-9-above-average-for-seahawks-game.html
we need a thumper tho. sprained MCL means done for year?
Whit, even with that awesome grab I am LIVID at no Mathews. He had better be hurt or have a Lebron cramp. We are acting like that Woodhead draw is the new Sproles draw. It sucks. Mathews went out after that fumble that he recovered. I have seen NO injury update. The U-T ran that article how he was needed and yet he's nowhere. Im still wearing that fucking jersey of his
where Rivers' "rep" hurts. He deserves to get those calls. But clearly
the ref read the same shit on him everyone else does.
Still, if they can get a FG and drain the clock I will be OK. Yes, I know it would be the same lead they had last week.
i really hope the offensive shit show was the result of Reich's new offense and Rivers not being able to get it together so quickly. preseason proves to once again be meaningless. Every play seemed like a struggle to beat the play clock and as a result our QB looked so spazzy. Let's not forget that he had to sit on the sideline without a shot in Denver when our season ended as our d gave up another 3rd and long.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Conversation @ http://justiceiscoming.com/chargers/seems-like-ive-been-here-before-fuzzy-then-and-still-so-obscure.html
With Hardwick done, Sunday is even more of an uphill climb. The playcalls, especially down 1 point, are still bugging me. Other teams should be the ones scared when we get the ball in that situation.
I don't know if its Rivers, Whit. Brady bitches and complains and no one comments. But the play calls, the new offense, the lack of poise.,,,
most teams would LOVE to be down 1 point and need only a field goal to win. We didn't even get to try.
Whit, it's not good. First off, they gave up two fourth quarter TDs to Carson Palmer. But between Gilchrist's drop and the snap that might have cost us a field goal they fucked themsleves. Then they get the ball back with over two minutes to go and act like they need more than 3 points to go ahead. Green and Mathews ride the pine in the clutch. no use of the run when it counts. Fucking sad.
