    Is it me or is boltsfromtheblue.com always pessimistic and negative… I know yeah part of these fan sites job is to critique decisions made by coaches gm’s and players. But from “why the chargers will lose” to the ample discussions on our flaws rather than solutions along with occasional celebrations. All in all I’m glad for boltbeat.

      thanks. i feel they slant toward the pessimistic side. Just my opinion though. I get the same vibe as you do from them.

    Shoutout to my boy Antoine Cason!!!! Two interceptions, 1 touchdown,a jd a fumble recovery in an overtime must win game. Knew he would shine when he got the chance when tyrann mathieu got hurt. Way to go AC. Chargers were idiots just like they always are when they let you go. Keep it up my man.

      Yeah…. he’s awesome… pfffft!!! Are you serious right now? He was rated as one of the worst CB’s in the league two years in a row (if not more), and the Chargers are idiots for letting him go? He played horribly, and was in a contract year. So, let me get this straight…. TT is an idiot, because Cason had ONE good game in AZ, and Telesco made a mistake on the Cox signing? By that logic, Cox is awesome too, because he had a ONE game-ending INT this season. We all saw Cason get torched for TD’s repeatedly… similar to Cox, actually. Not as bad as Cox, but definitely not far behind. I am not happy that Telesco totally whiffed on the Cox signing, but we had no idea that he would be THIS bad. On the other hand, we already knew Cason was awful, after years of watching him suck.
