Chargers vs Dolphins: Why the Bolts Will Lose

By Ernie Padaon

It is time for that weekly post on why the Bolts will lose. Last week’s game should NOT have been as close as it was and it gives us more reasons on why we could lose games. The team was flat and turnovers are taking points off the board.

Philip Rivers is OffHe can’t continue the poor play for that long, can he? Right now he is not playing at the level we normally see. This could be the game he gets everything straight, but the Dolphins will do everything they can in order to keep him sliding.

Playing Down to CompetitionOur wins this year are against the Kansas City Chiefs and the Minnesota Vikings. We struggled against both teams and they have a combined record of 0-6. Now we face the 0-3 Dolphins. Will we play down to the competition again?

Defense is HurtingBob Sanders is always hurt, Quentin Jammer is day-to-day, Corey Liuget might be back, Luis Castillo is still down for a few weeks, and Jacques Cesaire is out for a couple of weeks. The defense has a bunch of players hobbling around. If Jammer is not able to go, we would have a rookie starting at defensive back. The Dolphins would try to get Brandon Marshall in that match-up all day.

Norv’s HistoryWe still are in the first quarter of the season and Norvulous has NEVER  had a winning first quarter of the season as the Bolt head coach.  He has started every season at 2-3. Will history repeat itself?

TurnoversWe need to get this thing fixed! Two interceptions in the game and a couple of fumbles that bounced in our direction. Giving away the ball is a recipe for disaster.   On the other side of the ball, we can’t force a turnover to save our life, unless the quarterback just throws it at us.

So there are your reasons on why the Bolts will/could lose this game. Tomorrow we give you the reasons why the Bolts will win.
