Chargers 38 – Titans 10: Jackie Battle and Dante Rosario Carry the Team


Just leaving the game… what an awesome win. Will update post later with thoughts on the game. Share your thoughts here… 2-0!!!

UPDATE (8:28pm)

How many people started Dante Rosario in their fantasy leagues? I didn’t and I was the guy that was stuck starting Antonio Gates in their leagues. Norv Turner has been a lot more secretive with his injury reports than normal this year. Normally players with a ‘Q’ next to their name on the injury report was pretty close to going in Norv’s book. Not this year! That depth that AJ brought in at tight end paid off this week.

How about Jackie Battle stepping up and showing that he should be the main backup? He knows how to get in the end zone by the goal line and I wouldn’t doubt that he takes that Mike Tolbert role this year. 2 touchdowns and 60+ yards on the ground and I bet nobody started him in their fantasy league also.

How many times can Philip Rivers fumble the football and not lose it? Today it was two times. Philip did force a pass and got it picked off. Have to make a smarter decision on that play.

Malcom Floyd was running open all game long. Too bad he got his touchdown taken away.

How did we end up without any sacks? I felt that we were there multiple times, but could not bring Jake Locker down.

How bad is Jake Locker too? He could not complete some simple passes.

The Titans only carried the ball ten times and Chris Johnson was held under 20 yards. He is a mess.

Is it weird that are top tackler had only 4 tackles?

Thanks to StubHub for some plaza tickets at $20 a piece available a couple of hours before the game. That was epic!

    Yeah awesome win, but I think the 1st real tough challenge will be next week vs. Falcons. Don´t get me wrong: 38-10, this is amazing, but you gotta admit the Titans pretty much s#cked…as Raiders did last week.
    Next week our Chargers really can show whether they are a top force of this season 2012. But 2-0 is great!! Bolt Up!

    Love that we’re 2-0, one being a division win and two other rivals are 0-2! If Denver loses tomorrow then it will be a great weekend! Hope having Mathews and Gates back is huge for us against ATL. BOLT UP!!!

    a win is a win. i’m happy. the chargers beat two crappy teams. like they should.

  • VEazy

    Everybody started fucking with Kern and Bironas. After the game; we basically laughed at him. Hilarious seeing him ask security for help.

    Chargers looked great in the 1,3 & 4th. Fell flat in the 2nd but got the W. Looked good even without gates & Mathews. Will be nice to have them back next week. Is Battle that good or did the Titans lay down?

      i think the titans were beat down by that point. Battle took advantage of a defense that was worn out. BUT still think he is better than the other options. Ronnie Brown looks DONE

        Ditto! Ronnie Brown looks a tad slow even for the Titans D. What’s up with that? Here I am worried it’s the O Line not opening up holes for the running backs, then in comes Battle like a breath of fresh air.
        Great Win vs a Booty Squad. I hate to say it, but Clary is looking more and more suspect each time he lost his block and that defender got to #17….SD bettter draft some stud O Linemen, yes plural, high like in the 1st and 2nd rounds in 2013…Go Chargers

          the thing that scares me about Mike Harris success, AJ Smith will get cocky and think he can just pick up randoms off the street to play o-line.

            Here’s another thing I’m still scratching my head about….they got rid of LT when he lost a step, only to bring in an old back in Brown……he looks slow….am I missing something???

    Rivers likes Dante Rosario… he should team up with Gates. Two TEs like the Patriots. Have him out there all the time teamed up with Gates.

    No backups etc. Have Jackie Battle out there also. All the time.

    Clay Matthews said something after the Bears game. Number of sacks don’t tell the whole story. Sometimes, there are no sacks, but you are still getting pressure on the QB. Didn’t need to sack Locker- just for the sack. I see the glass as half full right now. Agree with you on all the question marks. Gaither kills me the most, because we fans were so happy when he came on board.
