Still Ranting About The Chargers Loss To The Raiders

The worst part about the San Diego Chargers playing that game at the darkest hour of night, I came into work still frustrated. I didn’t get the chance to release all that stupid frustration throughout the day yesterday.

So annoyed about the way we came into that game. There is no reason why we should have lost to those jerks of a team in Oakland.

WE SUCKED all last night! We played terrible. Turnovers after turnovers after turnovers. We can’t win like that. We can’t give the ball away! Interceptions. Fumbles. Dropped punts.

This rollercoaster ride that we are on is so dang frustrating. The team has potential and the offense can put up points, but we give the ball away that many times and we don’t deserve to win.

FRUSTRATED AS A MUTHA!!!! Why do we not even show up for the first half of a game?!?!?!

Sometimes I hate that I have expectations from my team. Sometimes I hate that I expect our team to beat the Raiders. It kills me inside!

      I don’t know… It felt pretty damn good to me !!!!!

        I bet it did. Congrats.

    Ive never in my life seen so much wasted talent and potential each year for the past 20 years. Being a fan is…………………..oh well. Have a great day.

  • OP Bolt

    Reminded me of a couple of years ago, when the Chargers went up for an afternoon
    apres`football scrimmage against a bad Raider team and Tom Cable’s guys
    forgot to read the UT and beat the crap out of them. After watching KC
    and Denver this weekend – well, let’s just say I think last night’s
    game pretty much finished any reasonable expectation of a playoff
    opportunity this year. Boy, we sure could have used Fozzy last night.

    We just simply are not a good football team at this point. The
    overall lack of playmakers, the lack of depth, injuries, and new players
    have destroyed timing, cohesion, and teamwork.

    The defense is far worse than last year and that has to fall on
    Telesco and Pagano. One or all of gutting the DBs, the LBs, or the NTs
    carried us beyond the tipping point, injuries notwithstanding. They
    cannot match the urgency of any team in crunch time. I can’t tell if
    Special Teams are that badly coached, or just don’t have anyone left to
    play. I think the offense is still good enough to win us a few more
    games, but they are not good enough to score on every possession.

  • kris

    We have the most immobile qb in the league. when there’s ample time and a clean pocket Rivers is good. When theres any pressure and I mean ANY, he cannot perform/move/do anything. We have so many holes and injured players its ridiculous. But, I maintain as i will all year long, we need a new qb. Dont bother putting up stats from this year I already know them. The stat thats not showing is wins, leadership, meltdowns, and mobility!

    • Trey P

      Shut up bro u sound silly

      • kris

        Coming on and telling someone to shut up over the net. Keyboard warrior huh. Thanks for the contribution.

    • Stefanie Smith

      The team members think Rivers is a leader. Meltdowns? What do you mean? Are you talking about the 15 yard penalty Rivers got in the one game–when no other QB has ever gotten one for doing the same thing?

      Mobility…are you looking for someone like Pryor, RG3, Cam Newton, Kap.. who? Because the best QBs in the NFL are not really mobile, no more than Rivers is. Maybe Fitzpatrick?

      • kris

        Im not going to argue about it. I think we need a new qb end of story. When we ride him for a couple more seasons and keep losing you’ll see why i said this.

      • boltingindiego

        i agree with you but to me the best qb is a mobile 1 thats rodgers but majority of the elite qb’s aren’t ones that run.

    • Derek

      Phill is a leader. Look at tony romo you can be tennis player mobile and still lose. When you have to throw for 400 yards your gonna get intercepted like usually if u run for 150 yards ur gonna fumble. One dimensional teams don’t get rings and often don’t get W’s. This loss was due to pressure yes but also we had no run game to keep Oakland honest. So Allen said get Phillip every down.

    • Brandon Reisinger

      That’s outrageous lol! “When theres any pressure and I mean ANY, he cannot perform/move/do anything” – He made tuns of throws under pressure last night and has been all season, his whole career he’s been one of the best beating the blitz. PR is the ONLY reason we even have 2 wins. Your point is totally erroneous.

    • Trey P

      This dude is silly!! He must want. Eli lol

    • 1961 Fan

      Good post Kris, keep telling it like it REALLY is!

  • Nick Mansoor

    Can i just be the first to say FUCK THE OAKLAND FAIDERS. That team is straight garbage, they just got suuuuuper lucky they won last night. Theirs team sucks, their fans are assholes and their city is the shit stain on the underwear of California. Thank you all for your time

    • Pridenpoise

      They got lucky, five turnovers, I love these asshole fans that can’t accept the fact that the Doltz are not a very good team, you’re obviously one of these assholes that makes excuses for your team when they lose. As for shit stains go look in the mirror.

      • Nick Mansoor

        The Boltz are 10000000000000x better than the Faiders, they just made too many mistakes from the start. Mark my words, next game WILL BE A BLOWOUT.

        • Pridenpoise

          Waaaa they lost loser get over it.

  • Trey P

    Dont panic bro The team did play bad.But Rivers is getting his Chemistry together with Brown and Allen now.And the run game wasnt there but it will get better..This was the 3rd and final Norv Faze that McCoy had to experince to grow this team..Remember 13- 3 when we were 2-3 just remember that.. And also the oline cant get push for,the run.. They should sighn turner he woulda got that 4th and 1..

  • Pablo

    If only the chargers played Both halves of a game!

  • Cgoodness13

    We’ll defense played good, this was just a quicksand game, no matter how hard we faught we just kept sinking more. I unfortunately had some anxiety problems so I had to leave the game early, but I herd it on the ride home. Btw did anyone else see Royal getting held in the backfield during the 1st pick?

  • Lamont Brown

    Good Game San Diego……Good Game.

  • Brandon Reisinger

    Am I the only one that is able to pull the positives out of these games? Was anyone REALLY expecting to contend this year? We we’re all saying before the season started that IF we can stay healthy we can contend. What NFL team stays healthy all season? Our starting O-line has been diminished (WHO THE HELL WAS THAT STARTING AT LEFT TACKLE AT THE END OF THE GAME???!!) #1 and #2 receivers out for the season, Freeney is out for the season, Wrights been injured. It just goes on and on.

    Now for the positives, Rivers has proven that he can still play at an elite level. Anyone who still thinks we should get rid of Rivers is out of their element, obviously does not know enough about to game of football to chime in. We have 2 young wide receivers that are BALLIN’, A young HC, that has 5 games under his belt but knows how to run a team that caters to the the strenghts of his players, A young GM that i think given a couple years will put a strong team on the field AND keep it there. Point being that the last few years you just kept getting the feeling that the team was rapidly declining. I don’t get that feeling anymore, and neither should you. If you get anything other than the feeling that we are on the incline other than the decline now I think you need to reevaluate the situation.

    • Trey P

      I will say these are our new number one and two recievers.. Floyd and Dx might be back but for what neither stays healthy

    • Nick in PB

      Good post Brandon. I agree, this coaching staff needs a few more pieces to contend but I like the way he plays and utilizes our strengths. This is an unusual season in the fact that so many of our starters have gone down. 3 concussions in 5 games? This team needs a little luck to stay healthy and have our best players, at least the ones we have left, play and keep playing. The consistency will come but we need some healthy players. I don’t like how we came out flat in this game. And the turnovers have to stop.

  • Stefanie Smith

    “The Bengals’ defense blitzed the Patriots into submission for much of the day. Brady was bothered by the pressure and missed a number of easy throws. This wasn’t just about his young receivers. It was a dominant defensive performance and a rough day for Brady” –

    Somebody on here said that Rivers can’t handle anything but a clean pocket and no pressure and then deducing that is evidence he is a bad QB. Guess that is Brady’s problem also. It happens.

  • jamfed

    Rivers isn’t the problem in San Diego. Its the RUN GAME (or lack of). A balance attack is critical, but if you’re running shotgun DRAW plays for every run play, that’s not exactly balanced. I’d like to see a POWER I formation and I’d like to see a play action pass! Especilally on 4th and 1.

    I honesty believe Prior was VERY lucky all night. He continuously made bad throw after bad read, but he completed those passes (LUCK!). The Chargers defense looked just a little bit too slow, but Prior was VERY VERY lucky last night!

    The defense holds most of the responsibility, and I do NOT like Gilchrist as a strong safety.

    • Blue&gold_blood

      I agree with you 100%… Time to trade Mathews ..

  • philiprules

    Just accept the fact this team isn’t very good and that frustration release will work faster for ya.

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    I kept saying it all week. Never overlook an opponent. That is EXACTLY what they did, and it might have cost them a shot at a playoff birth this year. The odds of making the playoffs when you are 2-3 are cut in half, compared to going 3-2. I think it’s 50% if you are 3-2, and 25% if you’re 2-3. That was a huge game for them, and they came in and screwed the pooch in royal fashion. There were few players out there who looked prepared. Let’s hope they learned something here, and it was their “worst game” of the year. They need to fight hard for the rest of the season, and defy the odds, for this year to end on a good note.

    • Nick in PB

      I agree Peter. It seemed like they came in the game with a check mark in the win column already. When the schedule was drawn up, this was one of the games we all had marked as a win. I hate to say it, we looked exactly like a Norv Turner team in this one. What I mean by that is that we came out flat. And when things started to go sideways, we fed right into it. This one was tough.

  • Blue&gold_blood

    Our secondary sucks , Marshall sucks …

    Like I told my boy . I rather lose to the jaguars then the stupid raiders . ( Now raider fans are going to think they are better then us) any person that knows football , knows it was a sloppy game and raiders were lucky .

    • Pridenpoise

      On this particular day they were the better team, so quit whining, they lost get over it. It certainly won’t be the last time it happens this season.
