Chargers vs Raiders: Open Thread


Time for the big game against the Oakland Raiders. It looks like the Buffalo Bills are going to give us a little help today. We need some help from the New England Patriots also, but we have to do our job and beat down the Oakland Raiders. We already stumbled to them once this season and we can’t afford to lose to them again. If the Bills can pull it off for us, then we better take care of our side.

I am expecting the defense to have another good game and think that Philip Rivers will get that ball to Keenan Allen a ton today. Maybe a second straight rookie of the week award for the kid. Rookie of the Year is on the way.

Let’s go Bolts!!!!

    yeah they shut Matthews down

    • 619chargers4life

      maybe not

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

        I bet they do after he gets a hunny ; )

        • 619chargers4life

          they should let him get the 4

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

            I think it’s only one or two now.

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

      Too bad.. just four yards shy of another 100 yard game.

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

    Royal is having another quietly good game.

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

    No.. there is Mathews again = ) he’s tough.

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

    Novak has been amazing this season. Yhink he’ll get Pro Bowl?

    • 619chargers4life

      no, our kickers dont get no love ever

    • Sergio Quintero

      Not with Prater making 64 yard field goals, and Tucker making 33 in a row, 3rd best kicker is not a bad thing

  • 619chargers4life

    down goes Ingram looked like a knee

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

      Saw that. . Yikes.

  • 619chargers4life

    no tweets on Ingram?

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

      He didn’t lay on the field too long. They ran the next play. Hope it isn’t serious.

      • 619chargers4life

        he’s in. i was really worried

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

          He’s tough. . They wouldn’t have put him in there if he wasn’t healed. We just have to get used to normal football injuries, and stop gritting our teeth when he goes down.

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

    Eff you Raiders! Stuckey did great there!

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

    Way to close this out DEFENSE!!!!!

  • arnie

    “SO YOU SAYIN’ THERE’S STILL A CHANCE?!’

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

      Lol… was there ever any doubt?

      • arnie

        Ravens went down, Dolphins went down…. just one more and we’re in.
        teehee!

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

          Got my ticket to the KC game.. feel like a tailgate sesh?

          • arnie

            Sure I’m game. I want the Chargers to give Smith a good welcome home.

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

            We will have to play better than we did today… but I’m glad we get to hang again… and with the playoffs on the line! J2 again?

          • arnie

            Absolutely. They are learning, what they need to do, to win tough games. Weddle playing FS, and Ingram getting in the backfield, has been great boost.

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

          AND… The Ravens game still has six minutes left.

      • Trey P

        I told yall dont give up!! I wish I coul. Find that post lol

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

          Please do… I am almost positive I never would have said I gave up. It’s not in my DNA. But, I’m happy for us all.

          • arnie

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

        Seriously.

  • 619chargers4life

  • FitzWilly

    and it’s over :)

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

    Get ready for a stabbing in the parking lot. The sad thing is that their fans are so dumb that it could be Raider on Raider hate.

    • 619chargers4life

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

    The defense gets the game ball, a la Eric Weddle.

  • JoseSD

    i dont know how many of you visit the profoottballtalk website, i dont much because Florio is an obvious douche with east coast bias but theres always some asshole Raiders fan named joetoronto that always talks shit on every AFC west post. but its always so satisfying when the Chargers beat the Gayders cause joetoronto goes missing from the comments sections for about a week

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

      Yeah… I know that guy.. lol. Battled him many timed.

  • FitzWilly

      • Bill Nichols

        Would love to see either of those slouches in the Super Bowl. God how great would it be to get it all first year into this new regime. Bring it on, future is bright, but I want it now damn it!! :)
