Bengals at Chargers game review

Where do I start?  The play where the Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton pump-faked right, then ran up the middle, dove for the end zone and got the ball across for a touchdown?   The lack of any offensive touchdowns by the Chargers? The last few seconds of the game where the Chargers could have scored but Rivers threw an interception?  Or maybe the fact the the Chargers are now 4-8 and lost for the fourth consecutive time and the seventh time in eight games?

No, I think I will dwell on the fact that Norv Turner is still our head coach even though the Chargers remain only mathematically alive in the wild-card chase.  This will not be the first time I have mentioned that I can’t do math.  But the Chargers are 4-8 with four games left to go.  The best the Bolts can muster is an 8-8 record.  I guess that is math, but an 8-8 record would require five other teams to tank, one of those being the now 7-5 Bengals and the whole winning 4 games in a row thing.

I really do not like the path that our Bolts are taking, the fact that each week they find a new way to lose and that Turner is still on the sidelines.  I do not think you could ask a single Chargers fan if they felt the same way that they would say things were fine.  Things are not fine, only those on the inside are okay with the way things are.  The game had a record low attendance yesterday, they are losing advertising revenue and San Diego is not happy with them.  It’s time for the Spanos family to fix things.

Fire Norv and AJ now.

    i agree, positive time Chargergirl Cindi. Danario Alexander, did is best impersonation of VJ. i mean wow. for a kid that had 5 surgeries on his knee, he sure did not play like it. he made it look easy, and PR did the right thing, by continuing to throw it to him. this caused the bengals to “adjust” their defense, when they did, mathews started to get some yards. gates started to get catches, and even Floyd was open again.
    The Defense, outstanding. Coach Pagano lost a 1/4 of his starters, and the defense still continued to play, dare i say it, “LIGHTS OUT” football. they did everything you would expect from a great defense, to give it’s team a chance to win. they even scored TD and almost scored a few more.
    Special teams, “fixed” their issues. the blocking scheme that was exploited for two games, gone. that’s what i expect from a good coach.

      It’s a sad situation. I agree that Pagano and Bisaccia are making an effort. Even Hal Hunter is making a go of it with what he has to work with, but Turner. No Bueno. There is not a single guy out there who wants to lose they just doing have the leadership to make it happen.
