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?

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

    Td please.

  • Rob Base

    No trust for Mathews in the red zone sorry buddy.

    • Daryl Peek

      That’s short sighted by our coaching staff. Never take a potential weapon off the field!

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

      Why not? Their answer is to do THAT fucking play to Gates instead? And he fumbles it? Im missing the rationale between NOT giving Mathews the ball because he fumbles too much, and Gates (not a running back) running the ball and almost coughing it up.

      ??????

    • Sergio Quintero

      Its reaching the point that its personal

      • Gunnar Martin

        exactly

    • boltingindiego

      well he did get the run on 1st so their is some trust.

  • Rob Base

    Was that a fumble?

  • Sergio Quintero

    Chargers are going to lose the challenge

    • Daryl Peek

      • Daryl Peek

        Not sure

  • Sergio Quintero

    Better to be lucky than good

  • Gunnar Martin

    What was the challenge?

    • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

      Gates fumble on 1 yrd line…we got a gift ruled not a fumble

  • Rob Base

    13 to the locker room WTF! Nnnnnnooooooo

    • Gunnar Martin

      @%$#!!!!

  • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

    14 pts left on the field due to no running attack in red zone…..Whiz, McCoy, u got some splaining to do….

    • boltingindiego

      well it was 11 points. they did run on at the end of the half and the play wasted seconds after the play in the pile which is why they went for the pass and rivers took a gamble and payed 3 points for it.

      • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

        Anemic…

  • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

    so how business like was Weddle on that last one???….suspect man….

  • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

    Pagano u blowhard!!!!

  • Sergio Quintero

    Defense is facing their most important play of the game

    • Sergio Quintero

      Check that, thank you Jags for being conservative

  • Gunnar Martin

    17-6 now?

  • CALiFORNiAkiD

    Gilchrist with a nice play…good job

  • Rob Base

    They didn’t go for it WOW

  • Sergio Quintero

    Mathews can run at will, and they keep taking him out I am missing something

    • boltingindiego

      keeping him fresh for the 4th just like last last monday.

      • Gunnar Martin

        Sure hope so. He’s doing well.

  • RZ

    Pound away with RM!!! Let’s GO!!!

  • Daryl Peek

    That fumble is getting overturned!

    • Sergio Quintero

      Should but we already had a make up call before, so until that official corrects the call I am nervous

      • CALiFORNiAkiD

        that call is for sure getting overturned

      • boltingindiego

        it wasn’t a clear recovery which is why the jags didn’t get the ball on the gates fumble.

  • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

    elbow was down

  • boltingindiego

    elbow shoulder leg dude was down easily pick a body part.

  • CALiFORNiAkiD

    Give Mathews the ball

  • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

    good job RM 24

    • Daryl Peek

      Finally! A redzone touch

      • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

        needed that….coach this kid up & let’ add this to the O redzone threat

        • Daryl Peek

          I’ve been saying that forever man lol

  • Sergio Quintero

    Mathews out of dog house

    • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

      he’s close to a hundred too right?

      • Sergio Quintero

        mid 90′s I believe

        • Daryl Peek

          15/97

  • Rob Base

    Booyaaaahhhh 24 bout time!

  • RZ

    YEAH BABY!!!! RM!!!!

  • boltingindiego

    if rm 24 plays like the past 2 games i don’t see him leaving sd. hope he keeps it up.

  • CALiFORNiAkiD

    Mathews with another good game

  • arnie

    WHAT DID I SAY PETER!? WHAT DID I SAY?!! MATHEWS OFF THE EDGES EQUALS PAY DIRT!!!! LOL

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

      Yes you did, sir. Good call! Like I said in my article.. give Mathews the ball in the red zone! He should actually have 3 TD’s today, but Whisenhunt is doing his best Pagano impression… so stubborn sometimes. They need to get that under control. The Broncos or Chiefs will NOT be as forgiving!

      • arnie

        True. i think the Whiz is under as much a learning curve as the team. WE know the good things RM24 is capable of. Whiz is still learning that, and building on that relationship. Pags, just needs to, like you said, stop being stubborn. Notice the DB’s are playing closer to the line?

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

          I did. And I like it. Cox still sucks tho. . He is the weakestlink… goodbye.. hahaha. And Whiz IS stubborn. He was stubborn in the Houston game too… that should have been a W.

          • arnie

            Cox will get better. Remember JJ struggled his first season with the Chargers and wasn’t looking like a great FA pick-up, now he’s awesome.

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

            I know. I’m just being hard on him now because he should know better. We are counting on him. And I never had a problem with JJ. He is exceeding expectations.. last year it was setting the edge… this year both…which is rad ; )

          • arnie

            I know your being hard on Cox, but he’s earned it. and the money for the crtisim. I’m just trying to bring things into “context”. All i’m sayin JJ struggled his first year, now he’s a man on fire. Royal wasn’t impressing either, now he’s earning his money and leading the team in TD catches. I’m looking for Cox to get better as the season goes on, and expect him to ball out in 2014. Hopefully.

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

          I am quite happy to celebrate this win with you tho, Arnie! Norv would have lost this… like in Cleveland. You, me, and Nick have been waiting for this since Bolthype.. hahaha.
