Wow.. how about those Raiders special teams? Kinda reminds us of our special teams from a few years ago! Thank goodness their long snapper could not figure it out.

The Chargers defense made some nice things happen. They forced a turnover and made big plays. Sacks galore near the end of the game, but we need to get more pressure on the quarterback at the beginning of the game.

The offense could not get the ball in the end zone. Felt like Norv Turner had Nate Kaeding on his fantasy team. We need to figure our how to get the ball in the end zone when we get in the red zone.

Looks like Philip Rivers figured out how to hit Robert Meachem deep.

Eddie Royal will make some awesome things happen on special teams.

Jared Gaither? Mike Harris did good enough for the time he was in.

Can’t wait till Ryan Mathews is back.  The running game looked ugly.

No turnovers! Thank goodness! Needed to see that happen from Philip Rivers and the offense.

Antonio Gates cannot jump. How many balls clanked off of his hands when he needed to get up in the air? He did make that one handed grab though.

What are your thoughts on the game?
