Bolts Lose But Get Into Regular Season In Good Health


San Diego Chargers 17 – San Francisco 49ers 20

The Bolts barely put any of their starters on offense in the game. Philip Rivers, Vincent Jackson, Mike Tolbert, Antonio Gates and a few of the other starters took the day off. The main objective on the day was to keep good health and take one last look at guys that are on the bubble.

The starting defense had most of the starters available, but the 49ers were still able to run the ball on the team. It is becoming a concern with the season coming up in a little over a week.

This game was lost with turnovers though. The offense gave up the ball 3 times with an interception and a pair of fumbles.

Next week is the REAL DEAL and we will see how this offseason preparation has worked. We better be ready to face Adrian Peterson and those Vikings!

    Is it just me or does Norv Turner look more out spoken and down right angry

    this pre season. Does Norv know for sure that this is the year (fifth) as head coach that he

    must “get it done” or be canned. His face is flushed and appears he is ready to melt down

    when watching his team perform. The “know it alls” think the Bolts will break out this year and

    think they will be 4-1 after their first five games. We shall see if they can get er done or just

    flop in the latter rounds where the really good teams know how to win. If they do not at least

    win the AFC Championship to gain a spot for a Super Bowl shot then Dean Spanos needs

    to step up and realize he made another mistake in believing that A. J. Smith is a genius and

    fire this arrogant fool.

    @1961 Fan i think the biggest thing that scares me is this run defense AND we start out the season against the best in the league. Adrian Peterson must be licking his chops getting ready for this defense!

    we better be ready, but the preseason did not show any signs of a good run defense.

    I agree; all these Spikes and Sanders dudes, we shall see if they can do the job. I don’t think so, but the solution is what Sid Gillman would say.

    If the other team scores 52 points then you score 53. Rivers better not stumble and fall on his wallet, even though Volick is more mobile.
