Can the Los Angeles Chargers get some respect now?
This is just a brain dump from last night’s sick win by our Los Angeles Chargers. Let’s keep rolling and get that number 1 seed.
No Melvin Gordon. No Keenan Allen. No Austin Ekeler. NO EXCUSES and NO WORRIES.
I am sitting here this morning and could talk about all kinds of things since my brain is all over the place! My arm is still hurting from fist pumping so dang hard after the 2-point conversion. I did one of those Junior Seau fist pumps and may have dislocated my shoulder with it.
What a gutsy win by our squad! Which one of y’all were doubting the whole time?!?!
I always had hope and loved the call to go for 2 to end the game. Even while we were on defense still, I was already asking the twitter fam if we should go for 2 after we score a touchdown. Everyone and their mother agreed that we should go for 2. You gotta trust dad (Philip) to pull off that win in the end and we don’t want to give the ball back to Patrick Mahomes.

I can’t believe Philip had to start off the first drive with that terrible toss for an interception. We could have got off to a quick start because Tyrell had his man in the dust, but Philip looked like Big Ben with that toss.
Then Philip had to toss another pick in the end zone! Holy moly! We overcame the mistakes and we overcame all the missing players.
I have said it before and I will say it again, THIS IS NOT YOUR OLD CHARGERS!
I have been dealing with all the KC trolls on twitter and I hear a few found their way out here last night on the open thread and it is crazy that they still won’t shut up! SCOREBOARD!!!!
The refs giftwrapped nothing for us. The refs were awful for all teams last night! Mike Williams been pushing off his whole dang life and he gets away with it forever. Just like our long snapper wiggles his dang fingers. Mike Will is just so dang big and he gets away with it and we will use it to our advantage all the dang day.
I am looking forward to hosting playoff games all the way to the Super Bowl. I know we have been killing it on the road, but I would rather have our team be able to communicate up front. I would rather have the offensive line be able to hear the snap counts.
This was not our Super Bowl. We don’t need to go an create t-shirts about a regular season win, but this is a game that is going to bring confidence for the whole team moving forward. These are wins that can propel us throughout the playoffs.
Also, how many of you guys hate Patty Mahomes after the game? Kid is talented, but that little smirk on his face kills me. When he was pointing out every penalty on us during the flag fest, I wanted Joey Bosa and the squad to grab one more roughing penalty just to shut him up. I have respect for that kid and I hate that he is going to be in our division for a long time.
Our defense gave up 4 touchdowns, but it still found ways to make things happen. The 3-and-out in the 4th was fire! The pressure was getting to Mahomes and they had to put a hard snap count to try to slow up the front. The screen game was primarily to slow down Mel and Joey. In the end, they made the plays that they needed to get the win. Happy to see Mel show up after being a ghost the last 4 games.
We still have some tough games and we are hoping that Seattle can give us some help. I want that number 1 seed! 13 win season coming!
