Defense reminds me of the Henning days. Keep us in the game, then play just bad enough to lose. Although, today, it looks like the D is folding earlier than normal.
I was wrong, guys, thinking this was just one of our traditional slow starts. Let’s go ahead and get a new coach and hope that makes a difference. It might just be a bunch of bad players and a good coach wouldn’t make a difference. But firing Norv is a low risk venture.
The Chargers offensive like fucking sucks. McNeill now needs double team help to protect Rivers. Put Dombrowski back in. It is no mystery why we cannot run the ball. The guards suck, the tackles suck. And we have good running backs. Over rated shit.
By the time we get Jackson back, our season will be over anyway. This is just sad.
I don’t want to hear ANYONE saying after this game “we’re still in it.” I will punch them in the face. Seriously. We pissed away the easy part of our schedule. I don’t care how we play in December. We’re losing right now. December isn’t going to matter by the time we get there.
This team has a way of sucking you back in and spitting you out all over again. We show flashes of what we could be if we got our shit together. The potential is there, but we can’t seem to reach it…ever.
I was in the bathroom from the Gates TD on. Superstitious family. I tried to come out when we recovered the Pats onside kick and my 64 year old mother physically pushed me back in. I didn’t try again until it was over. I was thinking that we need to get a tv in there, until we lost. I felt somewhat shielded in the bathroom from that heartbreak.
It could be worse…we could be Broncos fan. They set an Oakland franchise record - or rather let Oakland set one on them. 59 points. Ouch.
It’s a lack of discipline Ross. Too many mistakes again. Too much talent on this team to have a 2-5 record. But that being said, after seeing 7 games now, I would have to say that our offensive line is very, very much over rated. We have no running attack. We have no way to eat up the clock during the course of a game. It seems our offense is always in panic mode. An effective running game gives an offense the time to settle in and control the line of scrimmage. Unfortunately our offensive line is not good enough to establish that. Pass, pass, pass. Hurry, hurry, hurry. Running the ball slows down the game mentally but eats up the clock. That’s a good thing for both the offense and defense of a team. Until the offensive line is fixed we will continue to lose games. If Norv can’t fix it then AJ needs to get someone in here who can. AJ also needs to recognize that the line needs better personal. McNeill and Hardwick suck. Hardwick has no excuse. McNeill a little bit because of the rust. Clary and Vasquez stink too. Dielman is good enough. I don’t know what happened to Hardwick but he has regressed. Must be coaching.
Brady says mistakes like our would not be tolerated by the coaches in NE. Wasn’t it 2005 when he got all pissy when Marty tried to give the Pats an excuse for all the departed players depleting talent? But we suck and everyone knows it so we have to take it. Just as the Pats walked out on 1/14/07 calling us chokers, they and everyone else can say what they want and we have to take it. That is what sucks the most.
I’m sure Norv is talked out and tired of trying to explain what has happened to this team. The time for talking to his players is over. They either perform or you bench their asses. And it doesn’t matter who it is. You send a message that you do the job right or ride the pine. How the fuck can AJ argue with that. You can bet Goodman won’t be back which is a shame because he made a good catch and then went V-JAck. But it’s that fucking offensive line that I would really be blasting.
I still believe that this team needs to learn how to run the football consistently before it can move forward. Think about it. They have two signature running plays. Draw play to Sproles. Hand off to Hester on 3rd and one. That is a joke. Teams will start to catch on to the hand off to Hester like they did with Neal. The draw play to Sproles is already a sore subject. But that’s it. I see nothing in the middle of the field that shows me this team can run. This team has no identity as a running team anymore. There is no balance. I have watched enough football to realize that our offensive line doesn’t even look like it knows the fundamentals of run blocking. WTF!
So yes Ross, I agree with what the article says about our ass dart of a team. But he could have also added their ineptness at running the football to the mix.
Oh yea, and one final thing. Now that Naanee is coming back are we going to see that feeble attempt of an end around, another piece of shit Chargers signature running play.
“Look man, I believe we can get through this together. I’m gonna go out there. I’m gonna give you all I got. It might not be 100 percent, but I’m going to give you all of the 80 percent I have. If that ain’t motivation for you, you may need to find a new job.” Antonio Gates
This is why I love Gates.
Speaking of injuries, giant asshole Jeff Fisher brings his band of baby blues to the Q this Sunday. Maybe playing the dirtiest fucking team in the NFL will help our guys stay focused.
Scott Bair scooped Acee. How’d that happen? Had to laugh considering all the RBs have had their share of fumbles and miscues. But hey, I guess Norvy heard my plea of do something. His ass must be feeling a little heat too.
I put myself on a 5-day moratorium of football news. I checked into the U-T Web site today and saw no news at all. No player was cut, and no coach was fired. Obviously the Spanoses are happy with what the team is doing.
