    No receivers and no blocking and River's poor play is the perfect recipe for failure. River's screwed the pooch tonight but this offense is just plain bad.

    We are hurtling towards 7-9 -- or worse -- and quickly. This season is lost.

    just clicked it off. Rivers was awful... 4 INTs and 2 fumbles. Did Norv just turn the switch off at halftime and tell the boys to go on home or what? Meacham and Royal are showing me nothing. Meacham had one revenge game against his old team and that's it. The guy can't get separation.

    AJ is possibly the worst GM in football.. Lets not talk about the players he let go in all honesty.. But I'll just point a few things out that are relevant to these 2013 Chargers..

    Hires Norv Turner..
    Signs FCKING **** CLARY to a big money deal..
    Signs FCKING 5 GAME WONDER GAITHER to a big money deal..
    Ok what did those guys do against 3 elite quarterback lead teams? (Ryan, Brees, Manning) NOTHING cause they were injured or outplayed..
    Are CB's were FCKING TERRIBLE last year.. Ok let's do NOTHING to fix that and see them get torched for 955 yards in those 3 games..

    When Bolts settled for field goal on their first score you knew they wouldn't win. I do blame Norv but also it seemed royal and meachum can't get open. Hopefully Vincent Brown comes back soon.

    Also not sure about this running back by committee. I think we should just wait for Mathews to break one open.

    After close to 50 years of this team I'm not surprised with what just happened. If it's possible to lose a game the Charger's will either find it or invent it. It's the same today as it was 40 years ago, manufacturing losses is a specialty of this team.

    Yep, I got the sinking feeling on the strip/sack. Been down this road too many times not to expect it.

    Do I see another Norveloss bandwagon hopper? Or are you just testing the waters?

    Allow me to give you a nudge...what was the purpose of hiring Norv Turner? Continuity? Offense? Quarterbacks? Play calling? Tell me which of those has been a positive for more than 5 of our last 39 games. (Dating back to Jets playoff loss in Jan 2009)

    No... I will continue to support Norv and the team until the end of the season. But I have lost any faith that this team, under this regeim (going all the way to AJ) can do anything to bringg home the glory and give the Chargers fans what they deserve.

    It is not that I want Norv fired, I just know that he will be fired. AJ needs to go with him.

    I don't want to support another anti Norv/AJ thread, but I support a change mid season...enough is enough. Fool me once shame on you...fool me twice...or three...four...five...times.................................... you know how it goes.

    :poop: Oh no no no, we gotta be patient for the amazing December comeback! :poop:

    Remember, Norv has won 62% of his games as our coach coming into this season, he's the best coach in Charger history! :poop::whistling:

    I feel this game is on Rivers and the D more so than Norv. Maybe it's time to let ol Phil sit for a quarter or two not unlike Mathews did after that big atlanta game fumble. Not sure I have a lot of faith in Whitehurst but he certainly cant do worse.

    If there's a head coach available that can make the O-line block and Royal and Meachem play better I'd be all in on that hire. I just don't think anyone can teach dumb rocks to swim.

    I'd bench River's in a heartbeat, so far it's worked for Rygina.

    I hear ya...Rivers was horrible tonight as was the D in the 2nd half. It is Norv's job to get the team ready, and AJ job to get the talent. We continue to fall flat on all aspects. I'm very close to giving up on Rivers, but I would like to give him a chance with a competent HC and GM. PR is not getting younger, so a change needs to happen ASAP.

    A good head coach and GM would not have dumb rocks on the roster.

    You do realize that Meachem has had his defenders beat on just about every long ball this year? Phil has been 5-10 yards behind him. 17 isn't leading his receivers (including Royal) at all. He's flat out terrible, there is much more talent on this team than the qb is making it seem.

    There is enough young talent on D that if we get a good HC next season they can make something of this mess, until then, we will get plenty more performances like tonight.

    I've read some bullshit when it come to throwing and catching the ball but just plain outright fabrication has got to be the all time worst.

    It doesn't matter to me that folks fabricate what happened in the game from inebriation. When you come to about Wednesday or Thursday you may be able to think more clearly. I doubt it but I hope the best for you.
