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!

  • Mark G

    DON”T LOSE THE BALL!!

  • navw21

    Gates time!!!

  • RZ

    I hate that they don’t use RM at the goal line.

    • Rob Base

      He has fumbleitis

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

      Or McClain… he doesn’t fumble.. is big… and used to be a RB. Woodhead should not be your goal line back, except on special occasions.

  • arnie

    They had the Colts on their heels, and went conservative…..

  • Sergio Quintero

    This is the time, get a turnover defense, really get momentum into halftime

    • Rob Base

      No doubt!

  • Mark G

    Watch out Cox, its coming your way!

  • arnie

    Get out of the prevent!

    • Sergio Quintero

      That drive sure looked like the defense of the first 5 weeks

    • Michael

      My goodness, why did thry go back to the crap defence!!!!

      • arnie

        it’s automatic. if they are up, under 2 minutes: Prevent Defense.

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

          Any time I hear th announcers say “the Chargers are letting up” it drives me nuts!!!!

          • FitzWilly

            Cox drives “Me” Nuts :)

  • Sergio Quintero

    Really liked the new focus on defense, I can’t believe I said it, but Mathews has to get more carries.

    Need some plays from Gates, and some screen game action to get Rivers in a true groove.

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

      Mathews has NEEDED more carries. Not bad for dude with a concussion. Running hard.

  • Daryl Peek

    My hater senses are tingling. All Eyez on BOLTS ready to clown. Stay thirsty BUMS!

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

      Don’t jinx us.

      • Daryl Peek

        I’m sorry but I don’t believe in that.

  • Mark G

    I want to see the “other ” TE, nothing against Gates.

  • arnie

    Ther you go, check down, move the chains.

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

      Open the flood Gates!!!

      • arnie

        LOL

  • Derek

    Nobody can critique telesco’s draft keanean is about to be the biggest crontributing rookie wr teo hopefully will be similar to kiko or better once he and butler are on the field together. Fluker has been the best tackle comming out the draft. (Going against Mathis especially without freeny to prep him is just unfair) you can disagree but it’s not possible to select better with the picks he was given

    • Cgoodness13

      Teo is doing good also, he’s been all over the field and stuffing the run.

      • arnie

        Thank goodness

  • arnie

    Yess allen on fire!

  • arnie

    There you go start spreading the field and hit those targets outside the numbers

  • navw21

    cant keep settling for fg’s

  • Mark G

    That’s right. Need TDs to win this game.

  • Rob Base

    D needs to come threw big time right now!

  • Sergio Quintero

    Pagano keep the peddle to the meddle, don’t go conservative now

    • arnie

      Agreed. right now i need the Offense to stop going conservative, after every big play.

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

      He will.

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

    Now don’t collapse.

  • arnie

    Te’o made the Luck come up short. Get off the field

  • arnie

    I’m impressed, Te’o is really picking up the slack for Butler.

    • tubbs45

      Totally agreed! Very promising.

  • arnie

    You mean the Chargers stuff the run with 10 guys?

    • Rob Base

      That’s crazy talk

      • arnie

        That was the call they had 10 guys on the field then stopped trent short.

        • Rob Base

          I know bro it was I mix up and they still cam threw

          • arnie

            Just like Pagano drew it up?

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

    Sloppy play.

  • Sergio Quintero

    9 guys close to the line, forced a too quick throw to Wayne, nice to see a different defense

  • tubbs45

    Damn tackle the mother f’ers!!! Good stand could have seriously stuck it to them!

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

    These drops are making our secondary look good. Luck should be pissed.

  • Michael

    Uhhh what’s tackle,,,,,,,,,,

  • navw21

    Offense needs to go score a TD. Put this game away.

    • Sergio Quintero

      Have Mathews and 3 WR set, so the field is spread, totally agree

  • arnie

    i Forgot about Green, and so did the defense. Mix it up!

  • arnie

    • Rob Base

      Badass little dude

      • arnie

        I still haven’t forgotten Brian Balldingers dis on Woodhead. How does he feel about now?
