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.

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.

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
2 months 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.
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.

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.
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.

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.

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
3 months 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.
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.
3 months, 1 week ago on Conversation @ http://justiceiscoming.com/chargers/seems-like-ive-been-here-before-fuzzy-then-and-still-so-obscure.html
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.

Gotta love that our best player is named Jerry (or nicknamed)
Whit. I like that they are featuring Mathews at the end of the half. Keep it up.
I also forgot the 2010 and 2011 late openers on MNF. That first one was in KC and we still had to start late. We haven't won one since Sproles scored late in Oakland and Norv kept using that draw until everyone else caught on.
of course, we really don't know if he's any good. Yes, he has that last name but...
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Conversation @ http://justiceiscoming.com/chargers/what-else-do-you-lack-to-make-it-right.html
Much better today. Even Gathers' injury might not be as serious as originally thought.
@sdjeff Jeff, you still alright with last night's game? Thanks for giving Drunk On Sunday your support. I can't guarantee it will be as good as The Dark Tower or anything.

This is all that is left to say about last night's game. I'm not writing a full post until after the SF game. That one isn't worth the time I already wasted watching it. I don't know about being so quick to dismiss Mathews. Brown (and possibly Oliver and Grice) are good for depth, but they aren't Mathews. He's got talent, but that doesn't mean that he'll be worth what it takes to retain him.
As for Pagano, Daniel hit the nail on the head. That defense was the same one we saw last season. When shit counts, Butler needs to step up so that Weddle isn't the only guy out there making plays.
Antonio, I agree completely. As I said after watching the game, we never made Wheeden pay for telegraphing his throws. I've also never heard the word exceptional used as much as Billy Ray Smith did when referring to Dallas' backup QB. As for Freeney, it might depend on how healthy Liuget and others are. I will post before the Seattle game.

Having watched the entire first half, I would also be pissed about 2 goaline drives wtithout a TD, but the second string O Line was in the for the other one. Clemens wouldn't be running a draw in Sept. But Rivers looked really nimble on the outside rollout to Green.
As for Woodhead, I think his size is part of his skill set. Off to the show
Having watched the 1st qtr, I am more concerned with the slack defense (sans Liuget, Flowers, Freeney, etc) The book on Wheeden is that he telegraphs and we never made him pay.
Mathews went over the top against Seattle and we loved it in August. Hopefully, he will be careful as he was with those punishing inside runs last season. But if he's hurt or fumbling, we've got depth for this year and beyond I think.
I will remind you but I know you don't need a reminder that Mathews fumbled on the goalline in AZ last Aug but it was stripped back and we scored.
He did only fumble twice last year. I will post something after I finish watching. I'm off to the Warren Haynes Garcia Symphony
I sat in the end zone of Baltimore in 2000. They won the SB that year. The 2008 Miami game I sat up top. If you poke around I bet ticket sites can tell you the best places to sit.
Yeah, Johnny Winter was a blow. It being Jerry's bday today, I was going to put something up later.
The running game should be interesting since Mathews wasn't entirely trusted until after that Washington shit show I witnessed first hand.
The book may end up being featured on the site if I have to publish or promote myself. Thanks for asking.

Since I posted this, Larry English has been cut and Woodhead inked for another two seasons. Things are looking even more up.

A little more on the Flowers signing
5 months, 2 weeks ago on Conversation @ http://justiceiscoming.com/chargers/hes-a-complicated-man-and-no-one-understands-him-but-bill-polian.html
@AntonioGrilloNeto Antonio I promise to keep you updated with the book. I am planning on going to the Buffalo game on 9/21. As for Flowers, you are right that the pass rush is huge. Attaochu could be a nice shot in the arm. I don't expect Freeney to last either, despite the bison diet he was raging about to the Union Tribune. Maybe Liuget's shoulder healing will get him back to where he was. Ingram returning did wonders for that defense.
As for Flowers, I think it's opportunity. I was most impressed that Telesco got him on a team-friendly deal. I read all the stuff about him being a loner that Pat Kirwin wrote for CBS.
He's got better skills than most of the CBs we've got--especially our last free agent signing.
