Did you like the role of Jackie Battle as the starter at running back, with Ryan Mathews as the hammer?

The San Diego Chargers needed a bounce back win after the disaster against the Atlanta Falcons last week and they got it. They’ve also gone 2-0 in the AFC West and 3-0 in the conference. That’s great. They need to keep that going, because they’re winning all the tie breakers at this time.

They travel to battle the New Orleans Saints next and you know that Drew Brees is going to play out of his mind (he still wants revenge on AJ Smith), so they needed this win as a confidence builder going into that game.

All those turnovers by the Chiefs were great for the Bolts. Some of those bungles were self inflicted by the Chiefs, so that’s awful for them, but like the Atlanta Falcons the Bolts were there to pounce. Antoine Cason and Donald Butler have great hands. In fact, I don’t remember ever seeing Cason drop an interception.

They need to keep it up next week, because the Saints can explode and they have weapons at all skill positions, plus this will be their fifth game of the season. They’ll be better than they’ve looked over the first few weeks.
