Chargers vs Broncos: Game Day Open Thread


IT IS GAMEDAY! Time for that open thread against the hated Denver Broncos.

This is going to be one of the biggest games of the season. We want to prove to the world that we are a team that can make some big things happen and knocking off the Denver Broncos would be a huge accomplishment for our young squad. We have the ability to pull it off. We have the offensive firepower to match Denver. We just have to show that we can get it done.

If you have never been to an open thread, just head to the comments section and join a bunch of our faithful commenters. They will be down there talking about all the great things that are happening in the game against the Broncos. Any time Ryan Mathews goes in for the score OR WHEN HE SHOULD GO IN FOR THE SCORE. Every time Keenan Alle goes up for a big grab. For every turnover that we force against Peyton Manning.

    I am Charger fan. Been for 35 years. Used to this unfortunately.

    • FitzWilly

      33 here :)

    Top four picks should be CB. And Te’O is bordering bust.

    • arnie

      Agreed. However I’ll hold off on bust label,until I see a change in defensive scheme.

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

    5 yard gains aint gonna do it folks.

  • Mark G

    Te’o is a rookie. I still give him time. See if a better DC will help.

  • FitzWilly

    who wants to write and send an apology tweet to Wrinkles? lol

  • CALiFORNiAkiD

    I’m still watching…and it hurts!!

  • Mark G

    How much money did those fans pay to be there for this?

    • FitzWilly

      too much

  • Mark G

    I guess it is okay to hold Gates arm down the field ref!!!!!!!

  • Gunnar Martin

    Fluker’s at LT, Clary’s at RT…

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

      Good… Dunlap is done for the season.

  • arnie

    I didn’t know you could hold a receivers arm while he’s making a catch?

  • Mark G

    The refs will apologize for that right after the game Arnie.

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

    3rd and one… pull Mathews out… great plan.

    • Michael

      It worked so well last week,,, whats definition of insanity any one?

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

        AND…. they went to Gates in double coverage.

  • CALiFORNiAkiD

    Good Job Defense

  • arnie

    Tourek williams every one!

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

    Butler!!!! Thats what shook Manning up in Indy.

  • Mark G

    Even with a loss, it is worth it to watch our team do that Peyton.

    • RepOurChiefs

      I concur

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

    Still would have run Mathews. Woody barely pulled it out. Good job tho.

  • Gunnar Martin

    I know this sounds kinda selfish, but I just wish that TD would have gone to anybody but Woodhead. We REALLY need to get other guys’ confidence up, not just his. Don’t get me wrong, I love that we scored, but one with Vincent Brown or Ryan would have been much more beneficial to the entire team, if that makes any sense.

  • Mark G

    Like Peter said, a short pass to Ryan would have given more beef behind the ball.

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

    Lets see if Manning was ACTUALLY rattled.

    • arnie

      Nope!

  • Mark G

    DDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!

  • CALiFORNiAkiD

    Come on Philip!!!

  • arnie

    Hey look everyone, pass coverage works!

  • Mark G

    Maybe Manning was rattled. Gotta make this count. TD makes it a one score game.

  • Gunnar Martin

    Holy crap. If we score here we are still in the game

  • RepOurChiefs

    Not liking this…pick it up bolts!!

  • Gunnar Martin

    King Dunlap, Larry English, and Le’Ron McClain are all OUT for the rest of the game.

    @#$%!!!!!

  • FitzWilly

    KA again :)

  • Gunnar Martin

    Move those chains KeONAN!

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

    Not sure how I feel. How about the fans CHEER ON THEIR FEET INSTEAD OF FROM THEIR SEAT!!!!! I hate the conservative fan base that golf clap with a dog in their mouth… is our entire fan base made up of 60+ nuns + preachers?!!!!! Shameful.

    • blu3ny3llow

      I went to that OT game vs Den Tebows…I was on my feet cheering.. yelling DEFENSE to the limit n a dumb ass fan who was just sitting half ass clapping looks at me like shut up….WTF

  • FitzWilly

    FUCK U SP

  • Gunnar Martin

    Don’t you dare do a shotgun dive here. Don’t you dare.

  • Gunnar Martin

    Hey whaddya know…

  • arnie

    I love it when the use Mathews in situations that don’t have chance…

  • Gunnar Martin

    Outstanding playcalling. Just extraordinary.

  • Mark G

    Troutman lost his caviar

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

    Dumb da dumb dumb dumb!!!!

  • arnie

    Manti makes play, pull him out. Tourek makes play, pull him out. Mathews makes play pull him out. Is there a pattern, or is just me?

    • CALiFORNiAkiD

      lol Ladarius green makes a play and pull him out

      • Gunnar Martin

        Man what a great play that was.

      • arnie

        Decker makes play, throw it to him again. I need McCoy to do some more of what the broncos are doing.

    • Daryl Peek

      To cute in out thinking ourselves, *1st and goal blank stare*

  • CALiFORNiAkiD

    good job D

  • blu3ny3llow

    Yeah now run RM24 with a scrambled ass line n no fullback…SMFH

  • Mark G

    Rivers is too slow on the pass!

  • arnie

    Can we please get one.

  • Mark G

    NO – Refs fuck us again.

  • Mark G

    Peter? Woodhead again!!

  • Gunnar Martin

    Here we go..time of truth right here.

  • arnie

    HOW IS THAT NOT A CALL? Gates still had look, and the DB never turned around. The ball has to be NON CATCHABLE for that not to be pass interference.!

    • Daryl Peek

      once the pass is tipped there’s no PI

  • blu3ny3llow

    Use Geathers as a full back

  • arnie

    They gave Mathews the ball? Really?

  • Daryl Peek

    Finally SM football

  • Mark G

    Wow. They learned something from the loss last week.
