San Diego Chargers – Finding the Bright Side


We are headed into week eight and this has already been an emotional roller coaster of a season.  The wins, the losses, the giveaway’s, the insults and now the accusations of cheating.  It is a lot for the Bolt loyal to take.  If you are ready to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get ready for more Chargers football then read on.  If you want to continue being mad, then maybe read this anyway and then see if you change your mind.  After all, you know you love your Bolts and at the days end, it’s still football season.

Yesterday, without realizing it, I put on one of my favorite Chargers shirts.  My little guy was sick, so I was off to the doctors office.  While there, a nurse looked at me and said “cute shirt”.  I looked down, saw the cute lightning bolts on my sleeves, scripted San Diego Chargers over my heart and let’s face it, I look good in blue.  All of a sudden, I was happy, no longer did I feel like wallowing in Chargers induced self pity.  Just like that, I was over all the drama.  So, I came up with some reasons to help you snap out of it too:

Reason #1 – We live in San Diego.  Beautiful weather, gorgeous beaches, everyone is nice and we can get awesome Mexican food whenever we want.

Reason #2 – I’m over Bill Johnston.  I am no longer going to talk about someone who doesn’t deserve it.

Reason #3 – The Chargers players.  They believe they can win, so I believe too.

Reason #4 – We are not out.  We still have ten games to play.  Ten possible wins.  Ten chances to prove we deserve to head into the playoffs.

Reason #5 – Without the turnovers, we still have game.  I’m not sure how this whole “stick-um” thing will turn out, but based on our performance I find it highly unlikely we were using anything.

So, let’s get over all the drama.  Focus on football and BoltUp!

    I totally agree with the stories headline – finding the bright side – but I think most of your excuses for it are completely lame. And I mean no disrespect to you, nor am I judging you, but the excuses look like something a woman would come up with. #1 should not even be an excuse – because of the weather in San Diego? Give me a break. #2 – it’s almost like who is Bill Johnston? I read the article and didn’t give it a second thought. #3 – we have no idea what is in players heads. I imagine there are a few players on every team in the NFL whose only priority is their paycheck – and not their teams won and lost record. #4 & 5 are good excuses. I am amazed how many people have written off this season when we are still tied for first place and not even half way through the season. Here is a good excuse – Norv’s teams have a history of getting hot in the 2nd half – of the season. If it holds true, we are in the playoffs. And then, anything can happen. But I do feel that AJ has done his job, and Norv will have to win the super bowl to keep his job. He needs to get in his players faces more – “players coaches” don’t do that. Most teams are a reflection of their coach and this team right now is lost at the first sign of adversity. Lets hope they recognize this and have taken steps this bye week to correct it – another good reason for hope.

      First of all, I am a woman silly. Hence my lame reasons. :-) Second, yours are good and valid too. I would love to see Norv engage. Third, I read Philips interview last week and he believes he can turn it around. Also, I got to talk to Quentin, in person, and he thinks the defense has the tools they need to click. Fourth, thanks for reading and commenting!

    Reason no.6 – we still have the BEST jerseys in the history of sports!
    Reason no.7 – we have the BEST fans! Despite everything that has happened, we still are passionate about our team
    Reason no. 8 – could be worse, we could be watching the Raiders!
