Here we are again, trying to end a slide. Here we are again, coming off a game where we snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Here we are again, yelling FIRE NORV! Here we are again, wondering what is wrong with Philip Rivers. Here we are AGAIN!!!
Nothing changes about this team, but that is what we get for going with the status quo. Maybe this week we can start our annual rise from the dead act and fake like contenders one more time. Maybe it is that time.
It is only the Chiefs… and last week was only the Browns. The Chiefs probably look at the schedule and say that they only have the Chargers.
There will be a couple of sorry football teams rolling out onto the field on Thursday night.
What do the Chargers need to be concerned about against the Chiefs?
Dwayne Bowe — He kills us! Our secondary has no clue on how to cover him. Cassel can throw at Bowe on every pass and he will look like a Pro Bowl quarterback at the end of the day.
Jamaal Charles barely touched the ball last week, so the coaching staff will make sure to give him a bunch of touches on Thursday. He can hit the homerun. He can make the big time play. He is talented. He’s going to get a ton of opportunities and he just needs one little crease to make a huge play.
Philip Rivers is a mess. Something is wrong with him. He is making poor decisions and making poor throws. Add a little Tamba Hali into that mix. Hali will be coming off the edge to put presssure on Rivers all game long. Philip hasn’t done well with the pressure this season and he will likely try to force a few passes into the secondary. Hopefully they just go for incompletions instead of interceptions.
The Chargers team confidence must be broken and any wrong steps could just send them into a collapse. Can we overcome? There isn’t much optimism left around this team. They have to find a way to scrape a win together.
