Chargers Still Don't Have the Ability to Close

That stat says it all!!!! Looks like he is gunning for the number 1 spot!

When the game is close and late, just wrap it up and call it DONE! We are going to lose!

Norv Turner is not clutch. He can’t prep the team for a 2-minute offense. He is a master at letting teams hang around a game. Last season, when we started our downfall in the 5th game, Randy McMichael went off on how we let our foot off of the gas! Looks like we took our foot off of the gas again!

Why not run the clock out with Ryan Mathews, who was tearing the Saints defense a new one?

Still, we lost the lead, but we had the ball in our hands for the final possession. Can’t rely on this team to run a good 2-minute drill. Philip takes forever to run a play in a 2 minute offense! Tick, tick, tick, tick, tick! When was the last time he won a game in the final minutes?

Compile that with the refs screwing us on calls and you get the finishing act that we had last night! What a mess!

4-1 record and a nice cushion in the AFC West was there for the taking. So much for that!

    It’s like he WANTS to make all of our lives miserable! There were bad calls, for sure.. but, just once, I would like to see him go into a game like this, and just WIN IT!!! Stop putting us through this year after year.. We shouldn’t always be caught between hoping we do well enough to make the playoffs, and hoping that if we don’t, it’s bad enough that they won’t keep Norv!

      I agree man. This type of coaching wont change unless there is a change in the HC position. I am ready for that to happen.

      • James P Derrick

        …same goes for me….look at it this way, it’s a win win for us fans either way….IF they go to the playoffs and go deep, that’s a win…if they fail, we’ll probably see Norv go away…..

      drink up Pete. how’s that Kool-Aid?
      it is what it is. the numbers don’t lie. this is a Norv turner coached team.

      • Pete Spinning

        I don’t like Norv either, and never claimed to. You, on the other hand rarely talk about anything else besides Norv being a terrible coach. You’re like a broken record, bro. And if rooting for the Chargers means I “drink kool aid”, then everyone else here is guilty of it. Now why don’t you go “attempt” to call out someone who cares about your input. I would not be one of those people. We all know Turner sucks… you aren’t a genius for constantly pointing it out. That is all I have to say… Oh, and please don’t address me. I don’t care for you, quite honestly. I have tried to keep quiet for a while, but you clearly aren’t getting the message. Just leave me alone… act like I’m not here, please.

        • arnie

          my apologies Pete. sorry if i offended you.
          any record i speak is the truth. whether i’m a genius or not is another topic. However like everyone else, i can speak my mind on the topic of the team i love so much. unlike the majority i just won’t “Ignore” the problem of this team. and until the Spanos family changes that, there really isn’t much else to talk about. with that said, i already behave like your not here.

          • Pete Spinning

            Good. Glad that’s settled. I’ll get back to my kool aid now.

          • James P Derrick

            Gentlemen, if I may…I don’t think any us of have been drinking the kool aid….what I do think is as die hard fans we’ve been force fed rohypnol aka roofies aka date rape drug……lol this mediocrity Norv product we are being force fed is frustrating! Keep on ridin’ the Chargers rollercoaster….I have since ’79 & I can’t believe they let that game go last night

          • Pete Spinning

            Agreed. Nobody liles the forcefed Norv sandwich. Been ridin since 80 mahself. Keep on rollin JPD!

  • ChargerGirl Cindi

    Even with the bad calls by the refs in the last two minutes we should have won this game. It’s like they went in at halftime and were told to take the foot off the gas.

    • Ernie Padaon

      ARGH!!! still pissed we gave that game away and we took our foot off the dang gas!!!!! we still have not played a complete game! need to get this fixed and NEED to beat the donkeys on Monday

      • James P Derrick, maybe Norv was thinking bout them Cali gas prices when he took his foot of the pedal…J/K…

        • Ernie Padaon

          hahahahha…that must have been it!
