    The Chargers blow another game in the fourth quarter, this time to the Eagles when a blocked field goal is returned for a touchdown and Reche Caldwell fumbles on their final drive.

    Quarterback

    B+

    Brees deserved better than this. But they asked him to win it too late.

    Running back

    C

    LT has more room to run in his sock drawer.

    Receiver

    C

    Gates, like Dr. Livingston, finally is discovered. But you've got to hold onto the football.

    Offensive line

    D-

    It looked like they were trying to block the cast of "Spartacus."

    Defensive line

    B+

    The Eagles offense scored 13 points. Somebody did something right.

    Linebacker

    A-

    Merriman gets the start and has five tackles and a sack. Edwards is everywhere.

    Secondary

    A

    Hard to remember when the DBs played so well against such an aerial onslaught.

    Special teams

    F

    Lost this game. Plain and simple. You let Quintin Mikell come free on a field goal?

    Coaching

    F

    Another very winnable game lost, and some decisions could be questioned.

    Next opportunity (vs. Kansas City)

    A

    This is when the Chargers' season begins.

    BY THE NUMBERS

    1

    Rushing first down by the Chargers, equaling the second-fewest total in the team's history.

    7

    Consecutive losses by the Chargers by four points or fewer, dating back to last season. The margin of defeat in the seven games: 19 points.

    8

    Catches by Antonio Gates, equaling his career high.

    9

    Rushing yards by Drew Brees, the most on the Chargers (1 carry).

    10-0

    Eagles' record following an off week (including postseason) under coach Andy Reid.

    18

    Consecutive games in which LaDainian Tomlinson had scored a touchdown before yesterday, equaling the NFL record.

    45

    Rushing yards in the game – for both teams (24 Eagles, 21 Chargers).

    1,129

    Receiving yards by Reche Caldwell, the second-highest total of his career. Career low

    Can't argue with those grades. But I wouldn't give the coaching staff a "F" beacuse they did make the right adjustments to get us the lead at the half. They should get at least a "c-" or "d+".
