The bye week was best-case scenario. Rest of the division lost. Time to capitalize against the Chiefs.
Long game. They caught up. The Chiefs are going for two.
Is this Denver all over again? Carolina? Are the Chargers this bad? Is the season over already?
Tyler Thigpen drops back… and the Chargers win. Finally. Thankfully.
Even in the face of a supremely needed victory, squeaking out a win against an abysmal team is nothing to go nuts about.
Defense did just enough to keep the game in hand. The running effort is still woefully absent and tragically needed if the Chargers want to make the playoffs. Said L.T. at a news conference Monday on why they aren’t running better:
“There’s reasons, but I’m not willing to talk about it to the media. That’s something that has to be dealt with internally within the organization; players, coaches, you know, that has to be dealt with between us.”
That tells me either they have no idea what the problem is or don’t want to admit it’s the loss of Michael Turner- backup turned featured back in the ATL that’s cruising at third in the league for rushing yards.
Whatever the problem is, I don’t think Pittsburgh is going to wait until San Diego sorts it out.
