Chargers vs Jaguars: Open Thread


The San Diego Chargers traveled out to Jacksonville to take on the winless Jaguars. The boys can’t go to sleep before the BYE week. We need to get out and make plays and put this team away early. We have to step on the gas out of the gate and run away with the win.

Let’s string a few wins together and get into this playoff race. We just need top get into the playoffs and anything can happen.

The Chargers have the offense to put up a ton of points. They need to get those red zone issues figured out and find a way to put 7′s on the scoreboard. Ryan Mathews needs to run the ball like he did against Indy. The defense needs to continue to be aggressive and needs to slow down Justin Blackmon and Maurice Jones Drew. Manti Te’o needs to tackle better. Derek Cox needs to cover.

We should win this game. We should have our first winning record of the season after this game. Let’s get out there and get it done.

If you are new to the open thread post, head down to the comments section and share your thoughts on the game as it is happening. The awesome readers of Bolt Beat will be down there sharing there thoughts.

To start out the post, andwer this question: who will have a breakout game for the Chargers today?

  • Daryl Peek

    I hope to see Lavell Hawkins in the slot given he likely got reps in practice this week.

  • Sergio Quintero

    Even more reason for Pagano to keep the aggressive play calling with Jarrett Johnson inactive again.

  • Alex Pitrofsky

    Our bye is coming at a good time

  • Gunnar Martin

    V Brown, Green, and Mathews all have great games today. Shareece Wright steps up on D.

    • CALiFORNiAkiD

      He played extremely well last week and was targeted only once.
      Let’s see him shit down Blackmon

    • Sergio Quintero

      Nice picks, in particular it would be nice to see Brown have a big game.

    • Sergio Quintero

      Nice start for all 3 so far

  • Cgoodness13

    Spanos shall pay the jaguars D coordinator to wear a face cut out of paganos brother so he can call a decent game again

  • Sergio Quintero

    Woody kicks ass, TD!!!

  • Rob Base

    Nice drive there! Way to start a game!

  • Sergio Quintero

    We saw 2 things that have to continue: the creative blitzes and production from Liuget/Reyes, if they can continue I like the outlook for the D.

  • Rob Base

    Good job D! Too Liuget to Quit! Reyes beast mode!

  • Sergio Quintero

    Shareece Wright looks like he’s been named our number 1 corner, he got the assignment on Blackmon.

  • RZ

    Keep that pressure on!

  • Thomas

    .. Need a new LT.. He’s good but he gets hurt in every game it seems like.. Can’t have that happening especially with this pass rush they have

  • Rob Base

    Dunlap hurt once again. LT blues continue

  • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

    why do they do that??? 1st and frickin long….pass…..injury…gr8!!!!!

  • Sergio Quintero

    King better stay in the building

  • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

    then run ronnie brown??? they got lucky w penalty…

  • Sergio Quintero

    Ronnie Brown looks shot, zero burst, is he really better than any rookie from the practice squad

    • Rob Base

      For sure time to put up the cleats buddy.

    • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

      Woodhead can do Ronnie Brown’s job…

  • RZ

    McClain…c’mon man…smh!

  • Sergio Quintero

    King better get back in, major issues with health at LT

  • Rob Base

    Man the Bolts really really need a bye week. All these injuries!

    • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

      buy all of them that hyper barric chamber T.O. uses so they can recover….

  • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

    good job Eddie!

  • Cgoodness13

    Perfect play, side note how is this game not blacked out? The stadium is nearly empty

    • boltingindiego

      its locally blacked out.

  • Sergio Quintero

    Nice to see Royal get involved, seemed only Allen could get open last week

  • RZ

    There you go boys!!! TD!!!

  • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

    concussion for the King??? again???GTFO!!….

    • Thomas

      I remember seeing someone say that Philly didint like him cause of his inconsistency and tendency to get hurt…

    • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

      wtf? did somebody cough in his ear hole???? c’mon man…

      • JoseSD

        watch the replay, Jason Babin kneed him in the back of the helmet trying to pile on Rivers after he was already sacked

        • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

          Word! Babin can suck it…Dirty Mo Fo….

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

      We need to sit him for a few games. Just to be safe with his career.

      • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

        I think they need to address this position in the upcoming draft….get well big man…

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

          Unless Fluker starts playing great at LT. With Dunlap suffering a second concussion in a month, and Remmers going down on the first play… we will see a lot of Fluker on the left for a minute.

    • Gunnar Martin

      Must be one physical dude

  • boltingindiego

    man king should stop playing afc south away games 2 concussions in those games.

  • Daryl Peek

    Weddle needs to get in the gym and work on strength training. He’s looking real weak in run support and tackling in general lately.

    • Daryl Peek

      Seriously! That’s the third time Eric has gotten flat out run over today?!?

      • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

        overated….been getting exposed….tackling 101 & he’s blowing it…no more excuses just wrap up on your tackles already….

        • Daryl Peek

          I wont call E-Dub overrated but I’ve noticed he makes frequent business decisions on open field tackles the last two seasons.

          • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

            I’ll do it since every1 seems to earth to make excuses for him…he’s getting a hegty paycheck, s make hefty pkays already!!!

        • boltingindiego

          maybe in run support but in coverage tackling he doesn’t miss tackles.

          • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

            so riddle me this? is he getting paid to be halfway consistent or to bring it?? just not buying the hype anymore…Cam Smash??? Larry English??? Play like this is the opportunity of a lifetime…leaveit all on the field

          • Daryl Peek

            That was Weddle that got burnt on that big play on this drive. Gotta take the homer glasses off and be objective man.

          • boltingindiego

            i didn’t c the play so i can’t comment on that but past games when hes in man i haven’t seen him miss tackles.

          • Daryl Peek

            I’ve seen plenty of missed coverage tackles by Weddle over the past two seasons man.

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

        I agree. ..Weddle isnt playing to his potential this season

  • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

    note to Pagano…dial it up man…giving Jags too much time….c’mon man!!

  • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

    good job Keiser Soze!!!

    • Daryl Peek

      Didn’t he have long hair? Or am I confusing him with Bird?

      • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

        nope..Bird has the pony tail

  • Thomas

    Nice job wright .. Nice job

  • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

    Pagano!!!!!?? Tighten D play calling up man!!!#

  • Rob Base

    Both LT were injured WOW

  • Sergio Quintero

    I thought the call against Wright was a hommer bad call

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

      Agreed.

    • Daryl Peek

      Could easily be considered a make up call for that bogus personal foul call we got earlier.

      • Sergio Quintero

        True, still won out got 7 on that drive

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

        I hate make up calls.. BS.

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

    What if Fluker ends up being a franchise left tackle? Wouldn’t that be awesome?

    • Sergio Quintero

      I wouldn’t be schocked, he has pass blocked better than expected

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

        TT would be an instant genius! Lol. ..

    • blu3ny3llow

      Or even better image they give Geathers a shot at LT n becomes a star(only dreaming)…n I’m talking bout the NT not big lazy……just saying though

      • Gunnar Martin

        I think you meant to put a G there haha. lol Feathers

        • blu3ny3llow

          Yeah dahm auto correct… lol

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

    Notice how they run to the left now with Fluker over there? Line is actually holding up. This is where TT gets the nod for bringing in versatile linemen.

    • Daryl Peek

      Next man up mentality too

  • Rob Base

    Original Gates 1 handed grab nice!

  • Daryl Peek

    Very impressive PR!!! It looked like that rushing defender had a beat on him but I saw no panic? Confidence is off the chart this season.

  • Daryl Peek

    Too late to challenge. Nice TT & PR!! LOL

  • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

    here’s where they should punch it in w a rb our fb..

    • Gunnar Martin

      Yes. And not out of shotgun. PLEASE

    • Daryl Peek

      Should have taken a shot with Mathews over the top with all them hops on the first play of first and goal with 16 seconds on the clock.

  • RZ

    Run that shit!!

  • RZ

    lame!!

  • RZ

    RM!!!!!!!

  • Thomas

    WOW! That was pretty stupid.. How Bout you let woodhead get it in there!!

  • Gunnar Martin

    I’m not watching it what is going on?

    • CALiFORNiAkiD

      you want me to give you a link?

      it’s half time and we couldn’t score from the 1 yard line…we had about 5 chances
      Rivers tried to run it in….McCoy should have went for the FG 14-3 Chargers

    • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

      1st &Goalw 6 sec to go 1st half….got too cute trying to pass….Rivers QB draw..stop’d at goal line…..injuries like a mo fo on OL….again….good news we r up by 17

  • Sergio Quintero

    Big drive to open the 2nd half, Pagano don’t lose your nerve, and please play some tight press, the Jaguars are just throwing these 2 yard passes to death.

  • Gunnar Martin

    Alright guys, break it to me. What’s the injury report at halftime?

    • Sergio Quintero

      Dunlap out, Remmers questionable

    • CALiFORNiAkiD
    • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

      King = concussion, replace’d by Remmer = ankle….DJ to LT, Clary to RT, Rhineheart to RG

      • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

        sorry Ohrnberger to RG

      • Gunnar Martin

        Ouch. How have they been holding up since they got hurt?
