I still can’t breathe!!!! The Chargers are going to the playoffs!!!!

That missed field goal from Ryan Succop was the craziest thing to ever happen for us! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!!! I yelled my head off after he missed that field goal. So amazing!

The Chargers didn’t play a clean game and they had to work hard for every little thing that they were able to do. The defense struggled to stop the Chiefs. The offense struggled to move the football. In the end, the Chargers came up with some huge plays down the stretch and had some luck on their side.

Eric Weddle’s call to run the ball on 4th down on the fake punt was BALLSY! Getting that 1st down was huge for the offense to drive down the field.

Ryan Mathews was huge again for the Chargers running the football. The running game was big for the team and they were able to control the football and move the chains.

The Chargers are in the playoffs for the first time in 3 years. Love! Love! LOVE!!!

      Muahaha. . Now if only they can settle those “one and done” in the playoffs people.

      • arnie

        You do realize the Chargers lost to Cincinnati by a touchdown? If I’m seeing a pattern they are due. Time to get some payback.

  • Cgoodness13

    I misses the 2nd half due to a family Christmas party, got back in time for OT. But RM got 140 yards which is awesome!!!! but We barely won against a bunch of scrubs which is inexcusable, better fix the D schemes and lack of effort before the playoffs.

    So…who wants to email Norv?

    Didn’t he have something to say about this?

  • Bill Nichols

    I don’t give a shit how we got in, we’re in baby…….. Come on Pags, fix this shit, maybe a weeks worth of tackling drills will get it right, thank you Bolts for getting us in, even as painful as it was, still much better than the alternative. Destiny, here we come baby, Bolts Up!!

  • diomar espinal

    Why is it that pagano refuses to stay in the shell? This guy has never heard the term “if it aint broke dont fix it” . We shut down peyton fuckin manning playing it. I counted 2 times we did it on sunday and guess what, both times it was incomplete , 1 pass should have been picked off by Jahleel and the other he had to hold the ball forever and go out of bounds. Instead we continue to leave subpar corners in one on one coverage and have backup QBs looking like pro bowlers its sad. It was amazing to see our team win but truth to be told we had no business winning because of his idiotic calling of the defense. Hopefully we get it together in time for cincy.

  • RussinSactown

    Bolts to the playoffs. Norv likely fired in Cleveland. Today is a good day.
