I don’t understand this team. The Chargers are doing everything they can in order to prove that Norv Turner was right when he left. The Chargers defense is a joke. This Miami Dolphins team finished with 4 yards last weekend and lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. We are ridiculously bad. I am ready to admit it. I am ready to say that this team is terrible.

The offense can’t score touchdowns and it is the reason why the Chargers didn’t win again. We settle for field goals all the time down in the dead zone.

This is another game that we let get away. Another game that we should have won. We can’t win the close games and it always comes back to the field goals that we settle for in the red zone.

What the heck is up with the team’s tackling also? Nobody on the Chargers defense wanted to win this game. Multiple missed tackles by everyone on the defense. Just a sad effort for a Chargers team that was fighting for a playoff spot.

I guess I will stop talking about the playoffs now. Sadly, everyone except for the Miami Dolphins lost and we are still just a game out of that stupid race. My hope has been crushed with this loss though.
