Chargers 13 - Bengals 20: Chargers Offense With No Touchdowns

The defense led the way again for the San Diego Chargers. Demorrio Williams has a knack for scoring touchdowns on interceptions. This time he did it and it wasn’t called back with a Melvin Ingram penalty.

Again, the team had a chance to tie the game with the final possession and came up short. The team drove all the way down to the 17 yard line and couldn’t get the touchdown to tie. On 4th and 10, Philip Rivers was intercepted. Fitting play to end the game on offense.

The offense again failed to score in the second half. After holding a 13-10 lead at the half, the team couldn’t put any more points on the scoreboard. Another loss in a dismal season.

The defense forced 3 turnovers, but that couldn’t make up for the terrible offense and Philip’s turnovers. Philip had a fumble and an interception in the final quarter.

    Give the whole offense some Viagra. It’s mostly been impotent.

      Hahahaha… Awesome

  • blu3ny3llow

    All i want for xmas(in 2013) is jake mathews or the other guy from a&m(which i cant recall(feeding poison to the liver)) or milliner cb

    • JoseSD

      I think his name is Luke Joeckel, he’ll probably be gone in the top 5 though Mathews will more than likely be available for them to pick but he’s more of a RT prospect. Don’t get me wrong I’d love it if they dropped Clary but I think Harris could take over successfully there what they need is a good LT

      • tiiiiiiiiiiit11

        The LT from Michigan is great value for the position we will be in. I think CB is a need too, and one better served by a first round pick. Value for tackle is deep in this draft as opposed to DBs typically. I think Johnthan Banks will be a shut down corner and a better pick than Millner

    If Norv is still the head coach on the last game of the season, I will be selling my tickets to a Raider fan.

    • Stefanie Smith

      It would be smart to can Norv after the season is over, because I believe a new coach gets an extra mini-camp to install his system. Replace a coach during the season, as Dallas did, and you lose that extra training time.

  • Stefanie Smith

    I swear they are starting to find ways to lose on purpose. We all knew this would happen.

  • RussinSactown

    That O line is a joke. Along with putting Norv out on his a$$, we need a high draft pick that can be traded down for a few more 2nd-3rd round picks. Time to stockpile. We need to gut this O-line, find a hungry rookie backup QB and a cornerback or two.

    In the last two years the Chargers have had 13 offensive linemen yet the offensive line coach has been the same since 2007 (Hal Hunter) so what has been the problem? Obviously the lack of a good left tackle is a first but the rest of the offensive line has been together for quite sometime, can we blame Hal Hunter for not preparing them properly for each? Yes we can but then again, what has Coach Hunter has been given him to work with? Scraps. No disrespect for them, by all means, to play in the NFL means that their are the best of the best in the game of football but being top-notch in any given Sunday requires constant preparation, practice, chemistry and skills for each position yet Chargers management has neglected the position for quite sometime going dumpster diving and putting them in key positions instead of drafting them like they should. Here are the last six offensive lineman drafted:

    2012 Johnnie Troutman G (Injured, won’t play until middle of 2013)
    2011 Stephen Schilling OL (Drafted in the sixth round and actually played in nine games starting two)
    2009 Louis Vasquez G (Drafted in the third round, decent starter)
    2009 Tyronne Green G (Drafted in the fourth round, struggling but a starter nonetheless)
    2006 Jimmy Martin C (Drafted in the seventh round, vanished into thin air)
    2005 Scott Mruczkowski C (Drafted in the seventh round, played in some games, started in few but now is a free agent)

    I had to go all the way to 2005 (pre-iphone era) to get me a complete offensive line through the draft and no one higher than a third round, that tells me one thing: lack of vision. I have always thought that an excellent offensive line can make any team a good one. We’ve seen it many times in Denver where it seemed that any running back can lead the Broncos to the Super Bowl, heck, that is where Peyton Hillis made his name but in San Diego, it seems last on the list and when they finally decided to address it, they signed the “Big Lazy” off all people. I don’t know why Chargers did not brought back Schilling, he knows the offense and has a bit of experience in the trenches so he would nicely complement the rest of the O-line instead of bringing a 30 year old from the street who hasn’t played a significant down since 2010 (Rex Hadnot).

    Everybody is pounding on Rivers, Norv and Meachem with good reason, well, I’m pounding on Coach Hunter and Chargers brass for not giving Rivers a good protection, good blocking and a decent blindside protection. No wonder Philip in the past two years has accounted for 44 turnovers and 11 of them in the fourth quarter. Give him some protection and he’ll produce as always, give him cheese and well, we all see the results.

    From now on, it’s Fire Hal Hunter for me.
