It is that time again. Time for Chargers football and time for our open thread. We need this win today. With the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs getting that big head start in the division we have to keep pace with some of the other teams around the league. We can’t afford to fall to a 1-2 record.

We have to face the Dallas Cowboys at home today and our defense needs to step their game up. The offense will have to keep moving the ball down the field. It will be tougher to move that football on offense with a few of the team’s offensive linemen wearing baseball caps on the sideline.

If you are new to the open thread, this is where Chargers fans head to the comments section and share their thoughts on the game as the game is happening. If you are near a computer at game time, just hop on and join in on the conversation.
