Chargers vs Colts: Open Thread


It is game day!!! I love Monday Night Football for the Chargers, but I hate the wait! I hate going through all of Sunday and watching everyone else play their games while we wait to play on Monday. For that same reason, I hate the BYE week. It is great for th team to get healthy and such, but I would rather see the boys get on the field.

The Chargers are taking on the Colts at home tonight and will be wearing those powder blues. This will be Andrew Luck’s debut to Monday Night Football (as you probably know from the commercials) and we are going to get out there to spoil the show.

The Chargers have been on a roller coaster ride of a season. We have won a big game against the Dallas Cowboys and then lost games to the Tennessee Titans and Oakland Raiders. Which team are we?

The Colts are going to be a challenge in this game, but we have the weapons to hang with them on offense. Will we be able to pull off any stops on the defensive side of the football and will we be able to force a turnover or two?

This is the open thread for the game. If you are new, just go to the comments section below and check out what everyone else is doing.

To start off the thread, tell me which Charge is going to force the first takeaway in this game? … because we are going to get more than one!

  • arnie

    if the Chargers win this one, i want River to ask Gruden in post what’s up with that Colts commercial? Since you favored him why don’t you go ask him, he ‘s in the losing locker room.

  • navw21

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

        One tip ball INT doesn’t erase shit.

        • arnie

          you can’t go back. Only forward. if he doesn’t get better, then he’s gone. but right now, he made the play when we needed him to.
          Game Over.

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

            I thought remembering to go down was non-McCreeish.

          • arnie

            Good one ;)

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

            So did Crezdon & Marshall. Now if they can do that all the time. ….

          • arnie

            then they would be going the right direction and it’s true, there is a learning curve for these guys to gel under this system.

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

          He has a shitload of making up do. Good CB’S play zone and man well.

          • arnie

            True. But let’s make excuses about a HC that preached ” playing to the players strengths”. If he play man, let him play more man. Trust his to come along and work on his zone coverage.

  • Thomas

    Ryan is about to get his first 100 yard game in a million years !!

  • Rob Base

    I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it!!!

  • Sergio Quintero

    Well there goes, the any given sunday statement, everyone and their mother had the Colts.

    Major props for Pagano for changing his entire nature and style and fielding a completely different defense

  • Mark G

    Yeah, gotta give it to Pagano

  • Rob Base

    Mathews 102 yards ??? Wow
    Allen 107 yards Lucky 13
    VERY NICE!

  • tubbs45

    How do ya like them apples Colts fans!!!!

  • RZ

    Saaaaaawweeeeeettttttt!!!!!!

  • Mark G

    In your face refs, you didn’t steal this one!!

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

    “Nick the kick.” I like that. Now if he could only get it out of the end zone on kick offs… lol.

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

    Im glad we did BOOMER right. .. he always picks us.

    • arnie

      The Powder Blues. Just make the switch.

      • Michael

        No doubt!!!!!!!!!!

  • arnie

    And here comes the post game excuses for the colts. trying to back pedal on the Monday Night Commercial?

    • tubbs45

      Note to Colts: don’t anger the baby maker!!!

      • arnie

        LOL

  • Mark G

    Only one bad game this season. Much improved team! And our young WRs and TE look great!

  • boltingindiego

    lol rivers interview with lisa didn’t know who the colts were playing this week

  • navw21

    HAHA Philip just called out ESPN about that B.S. add about Luck’s first MNF commercial.

    • tubbs45

      ‘I wasn’t sure who the Colt were playing with all those commercials…’ Hahahaha

    • Michael

      Saw that, it was briliant!!!

  • Mark G

    Maybe the Colts will learn something before taking on peyton and the ponies.

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

    None of those assholes picked us. Suck it O’Hara.. Giants 0-6… lol.

    • tubbs45

      Dilfer did!

      • arnie

        Dilfer has been on the bandwagon for Rivers.

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

          I don’t blame him. we have been for years.

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

        He did…. I felt good for him and Boom. The Chargers bamboozled them on the Houston game…. they are honorary Bolts IMO.. Even Gruden. The ONE time he gets caught on the Colts bandwagon, we hold the Colts to No TD’S and 3 FG’s… he’s had our backs a lot = )

    • navw21

      BOOM did

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

        Boomer isn’t an asshole… lol.

    • arnie

      And Tom Jackson…

      • navw21

        Yeah he did but just to try and pick up a game on Keyshawn on their pick’em. He didn’t really believe.

        • arnie

          yeah i know, but he picked us.

  • Daryl Peek

    Gotta admit I didn’t like that FG attempt, that’s why I’m not getting paid to make callls

  • arnie

    Good night people i will return with What We Learned on Wednesday.

  • Mark G

    We were saying we can’t win with FG, didn’t know our D would be so strong. Pagano wanted this game!

  • Michael

    Thank you chargers, I can lift my head up again

  • Mark G

    Good night and good game!

  • boltingindiego

    too many fg’s but ill take the win.

  • Pels04

    Huge team win. Need to play more consistent football. Pagano called a great game and gates two weeks in a row has run two terrible routs on critical third downs.
