Chargers 34 – Steelers 24: Team Finally Closes Game Out


20121209-134153.jpg

The Chargers win when we don’t need them to and lose when we need a win. This time, the Chargers got their first regular season win in Pittsburgh.

How does a team look so bad one week and then go on the road to beat the Steelers like they did. They are the Jekyll and Hyde team of the league. Don’t know which team will show up any Sunday. It looks like the Bolts could be on their way to a 4 game winning streak to end the season.

Danario Alexander again showed that he is an elite talent. He finished with a pair of touchdowns in the game.

Norv Turner was given the game ball from Dean Spanos.

    Despite the fact that we will miss the playoffs, and we made our draft pick situation worse… It was nice to break that losing streak in Pittsburgh. I hate that team. Too bad we couldn’t find a way to close out the other 3 teams from that division : /

      Same story with Norv. to little too late. and by winning he even found a way to make the chargers losers, for next year.

    On the up side, I’m glad we showed up today. On the down side, if this turns into justification to keep Norv and AJ I’ll scream obscenities. Lots of obscenities.

    Norv added some new plays. I heard the broadcasters talking, “Norv wanted his players to to end the year feeling good about themselves. that why he put those plays in.” Know what else gives players a good feeling? putting new plays in, to help your players into the playoffs.

    It felt good to see them win one. Sure it also made the players feel good also.

    Come on guys! Its really a little upsetting to hear all the bitching about how we are losing draft position with this win. What do you expect this team to do? Just go out there and bend over and hand other teams wins? That’s not what this sport is about! I for one was glad to see this team have a little bit of resiliency and go out and show that they are still willing to fight. There is certainly a silver lining that can be taken from this season and that is that John Pagano has this defense playing lights out football! I would watch out for this team moving forward cause once they get this offence fixed I have no doubt that we’ll have a top 5 defense next year

      I hope we can keep Pags next season with whoever they bring in as coach

        I really hope so too! I have a hard time seeing anyone not wanting to keep an up and comer who is familiar with our players like him around though.

          but what if we hire a defensive minded coach that wants to run his own scheme?

          • arnie

            then that would justify my lack of confidence in this organizations decision making process. we need a HC minded coach and an Offensive coordinator.

    It was a fun game to watch… the entire time!

    Spanos giving Norv the game ball = Spanos is waffling.
