The Chargers defense is bad in all kinds of ways. Sure we were missing starters all over the field, but I used to think we had some sort of talent on this side of the football. Why does it seem like every team in the league can put up 300 yards passing on us and can drive for a score at will? Where is the toughness on this side of the ball? John Pagano, you are in the hot seat!!!!

Not all the blame can go on the defense for this week, but I am already tired of teams picking up big chunks of yards on the ground on us.

We just made Jake Locker look like a track star on the field. We also made him look like a decent NFL quarterback. HE IS NOT!

Corey Liuget.. Where the heck have you been?! Liuget was regarded as one of the best players on the defense and has not shown up so far this season. Dwight Freeney is close to a sack on every play, but since there is no pressure from anywhere else, quarterbacks can just side step Freeney and get away.

The secondary is laughable. 15 yards. 20 yards. Touchdown. We can’t stop anything.

We’ll get Manti Te’o and Donald Butler back for Sunday, but how are they going to stop Tony Romo and Dez Bryant?

Our defense has been ridiculous bad.
