Chargers vs Eagles: Game Day Open Thread


It is that time again… FOOTBALL on the road and we get the early game. Sadly I have to catch this game on the DVR. When you guys do that, do you sit on your phone looking for updates everywhere or do you shut the world down and pretend the game is not happening until you sit in front of the DVR? I will be waiting till I get home and hoping nobody ruins this game for me, so the phone will go off.

Anyway, this game is sure to have a ton of offense in it. We all have heard about the Eagles offense. ESPN and the rest of the NFL is all over their jock. I would love to shut that thing down and prove that we are a team to mess with.That would definitely help push us up some power rankings. It would give confidence to all the Chargers fans as well and get that gross taste out of our mouths from last week.

Let’s pound on those Eagles. Pluck their wings!

Anyway, this is the open thread where we post down at the bottom and share opinions during the game. You all did an amazing job last week by having 700+ comments and I wasn’t in on any one of those. Excellent job my friends and let’s keep the discussion rolling for today’s game.

  • Rob Base

    Hey Chip Fuck your offense buddy!!! Wins a win!!

  • boltingindiego

    what happened to butler in the end any 1 know

    • Cgoodness13

      Something happend to him?

      • boltingindiego

        he wasn’t on the field last series and 59 and bird were in as ilb. on the shady screen u saw bird out their covering him.

  • Daryl Peek

    I’m very critical of Rivers. I’ve also said I’d gladly eat crow if he proves me wrong. Flawless victory by PR *Brandon Lee blank stare*

  • RussinSactown

    Now we need to know how Floyd is

  • Cgoodness13

    Hope Floyd recovered in time to see his family win this game, hope he’s ok

  • RZ

    Good Shit CHARGERS!!

  • Daryl Peek

    Beat Philly in that home opener, just saying…

    • boltingindiego

      hope the tradition continues

  • CALiFORNiAkiD

    That’s the Rivers I want to see every week.

    What a WIN….So happy right now

  • boltingindiego

    offense was excellent minus the fumbles. great protection and glad they used woodhead a lot more this week. allen stepped up for floyd and the d made great stand on the last 3 downs. and novak great game winner.

  • CALiFORNiAkiD

    I really hope Malcom Floyd is ok. He was having a fantastic game.

  • CJ

    By my count Rivers has 7-TD and 1-INT so far this season.. not elite?

  • Stefanie Smith

    This is a win for Malcolm. Go get him from the hospital and come on home. I know that is probably not even possible, but Malcolm is in my prayers.

    • boltingindiego

      he will probably fly back either monday or tuesday.

  • Stefanie Smith

    Don’t want to rain on the parade, but our D needs a little something. However, so thankful for the win!

    • CJ

      yeah, they need 2 cover corners.

      • Daryl Peek

        I think they need a more aggressive scheme. Cox is a better man cover defender. I’d bet Wright does better like that also. We haven’t generated enough pressure either. Too much bend but don’t break.

  • Stefanie Smith

    Did you know some of the guys from NFL Network, in their bold predictions thought it would be a Philly blowout with Philly getting 60? Now they just look stupid.

    • Daryl Peek

      Rivers was AWESOME today Stefanie. There, I said it! *looking*

  • NativeSanDiegan

    Like you Ernie I sometimes have to watch on DVR, especially these early morning East coast games starting here in Hawaii at 7 on a Sunday. I don’t want to hear any iota about the game; watch it live in my brain. Sure glad Novak can kick a field goal to win it. Seems like Scifres isn’t punting as well so far, but I’m nitpicking. GO BOLTS!!!
