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

    They saw it coming….

  • Rob Base

    Not going to win on FG’s

  • Mark G

    I saw that coming…

    • boltingindiego

      of course you saw it coming since the whole damn drive was pratically all runs.

      • arnie

        3rd and 1 should have been pass…..

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

        Patchwork line sucks.

        • arnie

          That play call with Ronnie Brown sucked.

          • boltingindiego

            that play screwed the drive up

        • boltingindiego

          are you serious they’ve been playing great

          • arnie

            true. right up until they attacked schilling…

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

            Thank you.

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

            They were. .. and then the game stopped. .. hmmmmmmmmm… FG.

          • boltingindiego

            minus the back up to the back up this line has been playing great this game. Hopefully trout got rid of the cramps and finishes up the game.

  • arnie

    that is where they need a hurry up no huddle offense. instead they slow things down. let the defense catch their breath and it’s filed goal time.

    • Rob Base

      Grrrrrrrrrrrrr

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

    Foot lifting off pedal.

  • RZ

    Cmon D!!!!!!!!!

  • Mark G

    The season is on the line here!!

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

    Tutu sighting!!!

  • navw21

    We need a turnover D. Come on now’s the time.

  • Sergio Quintero

    You know Colts are going to the no huddle shot gun offense, can Pagano keep his nerve and play agressive

    • arnie

      Nope, he’s going prevent. keep everything in front of him

  • 619chargers4life

    wtf

  • navw21

    is anyone on Wayne?

    • boltingindiego

      only air

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

    Key failure commence.

    • arnie

      That’s what i mean, they get into a rhythm on defense then John call soft coverage.

  • Daryl Peek

    Why such soft zone coverage!

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

      Cuz that is all a dead last secondary can do. Without getting burnt anyway. Good pressure today. .. and is the secondary much better?

      • Daryl Peek

        Dropped passes saving us but I’d like more press coverage gambling. Pags has been dialing up more zone blitzes in the second half. Good stuff so far…

  • arnie

    Wayne are we back on not covering the #1 WR again

  • navw21

    Finally

  • tubbs45

    Down goes luck!!! Down goes luck!!!!

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

      Buy that man a beer..

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

    OMG… Cox made a run game play… take a picture.

  • 619chargers4life

    we need 7, sheesh !!!!

  • arnie

    Can anyone count the missed opportunities in the Readzone from the Chargers? and could see Luck sending this to overtime.

    • Rob Base

      Hope not

  • Rob Base

    Why are the games so close and why am I pacing the floor….

    • Sergio Quintero

      Pacing the floor with you buddy

    • arnie

      the spirit of norv is trying to raise it’s ugly head….

  • navw21

    On a different note. Who loves that P.O.S. Eli and the Giants being 0-6

    • 619chargers4life

      gotta love it

      • arnie

        does he need to be fixed?

        • navw21

          how do you fix a TOOL. LOL

          • arnie

            throw it away.

        • boltingindiego

          this season for him reminds me of rivers past 2 years.

          • arnie

            Rivers took an entire season to get to 15 INT, Eli got there in 5 games.

          • boltingindiego

            im just talking about forcing plays and trying to do way too much. no run game and horrible o-line.

          • arnie

            i get that. I’m just saying as bad as Rivers was, Eli is far beyond worse.

          • boltingindiego

            he just gets a bigger pass since he has those 2 rings im just glad he doesn’t get considered “elite” anymore.

          • arnie

            Also True. But those rings came from a great defense and running game. The Eli we are seeing now, is the same QB that won those rings.

          • boltingindiego

            i agree fully but analysts or fans will always will throw up the ring card either for or against a qb.

          • arnie

            True he is a 2 time SB Champion. My response? None of those rings will help Eli this year. None of those trophies will line up on the offense or play defense.

        • Nick in PB

          hahaha… fixed, good one Arnie.

  • 619chargers4life

    two hands on the football Chargers

  • arnie

    Finish! just throw it to 13

  • Rob Base

    13 rivers 13

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

    That first drive out of the locker room gotta OK.. . And they start to crumble. Even if they win. .. its a pattern.

  • tubbs45

    Dial it up NOW

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

      One can only hope. Looks like they are giving up again.

  • Rob Base

    Fffffffffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuccccccckkkkkkkk Sorry guys had to scream

  • Daryl Peek

    Need the defense to create a turnover for a change.

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

    3 points in the second half. ..at home. Weak.

    • boltingindiego

      double it but still would like to see td’s instead of fg’s. only bright spot is only 3 points on d and tinme of possession.

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

        My bad. .. still weak as water.

        • boltingindiego

          minus the fg’s it been a great half.

  • Sergio Quintero

    Damn a hate putting this defense in a position to win the game

  • Rob Base

    What’s really going on in the hood

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

      Crappy play… coaching, and execution.

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

    Every time man. Every time.

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

    Weddle!!!! Now do it again. Watch the fake!!!!

  • arnie

    They can win this game on this drive. IF they don’t get caught with the fake.

  • Rob Base

    Too Liuget just quit damn homie!

  • tubbs45

    Big stop right there!!!

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

      Agreed.

  • Rob Base

    Rivers needs to throw it to #13 stat!

  • Thomas

    Just got home from the gym to see this!! Field goal to win the game !!! Lets go bolts

  • arnie

    Great field position. go down there and score a TD! FINISH THE GAME!!!!!!!!

  • arnie

    OF THE EDGES OFF THE EDGES! OFF THE EDGES!!!!!!!!!

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

    I thought kicking the ball was a foul? Didn’t they call Rivers for that?

  • arnie

    THAT’S RIGHT OFF THE EDGES!!!!!!!

  • navw21

    Now is not the time to get sloppy

    • arnie

      It’s time to finish.

  • Cgoodness13
