    There's plenty of blame to go around everywhere, but as the QB and face of this team, Rivers is always going to take the brunt of the criticism.

    With that in mind, many of us knew before the season started that this was going to be a rebuilding year. Most of the win projections I remember seeing here ranged from 5-9 wins (I personally have them at 7), which isn't exactly impressive. What sucks is that the Chargers' production until roughly 2 weeks ago gave the fanbase hope, and now that they're hitting the roughest patch of their schedule, we're all going back to facing reality.

    That 2-12 year was a low point. But I'm sure it had nothing to do with Tommy. Where the hell is that Prothro vs Coryell thread? Did the mods lock it down?

    The Stillers are supposedly thinking of offing Big Ben, maybe the Bolts can trade Rivers straight up and then we'd have a strong armed and mobile QB. The Bolts still wouldn't have an even good defense but at least they'd have a big strong mobile QB that might be able to help win with his legs.

    Why is that almost almost every top 10 offensive highlight reel on ESPN features our defense week in and week out?

    I'm concerned that the team is regressing these last 4 weeks. McCoy is not impressing me and his message when hired is not what we are seeing on the field. Everyone seems to make mistakes and that to me is the coach. I'm not saying fire McCoy but I'm am very disappointed in what he has done with this team.

    The only coaching that has impressed me so far is by the O-line coaches. What Joe D & Dees have done with a patchwork group has been impressive. This last game was the only time the O-line looked overmatched.

    Few things can make a crappy Monday morning worse than waking up to a Bolt defeat to the fish worriers.

    I'm more disappointed because the start of this season actually got my hopes up from what I thought would be a v bad season.

    I'm more of a fan of the sentiment Expectation vs Hope as when it comes to the Bolts, the latter has always let me down and has left me jaded!

    What the BT "intelligentsia" brigade has been trying to accomplish with all this Norf talk and comparison is really not any help other than the usual fan banter of "mine is bigger and better than yours" nonsense. If any one of you were expecting a playoff caliber team of circa 2006-2007 era for this season, then you were in a deeper hibernation than the laziest of the Canadian grizzlies!

    Now work on those extensive closing statement about the wonderfulness of Norf, whence we finish the season 6-10 (at best) ;)

    6-10 is very optimistic at this point isn't it?

    P.S. The SS Norval Turner sunk in Cleveland

    Since KC will most likely be in a dead heat with Denver, I don't see them fielding their 2nd and 3rd stringers for the season's finale against us. Our two other "maybe" wins are probable against the Turds and the GNats, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Lucky that you ain't a Mod anymore 'cause a 0-6 slide from here is gonna be a very bumpy ride for the powers that be @ BT ;)

    “The mistakes we talked about at halftime,” McCoy said, “on the first drive offensively and defensively, we made the exact same mistakes we were trying to clean up."

    Is a tiny filament about to spark? ;)

    True about the Mod thingie. Though for the last two seasons the loss meltdowns have been much less intense than in seasons before that. We have the 'Norf iz gawd' rabble rousers now but they are easy enough to scroll past... Yesterdays loss was ugly, perhaps the ugliest I have seen in a while... But all in all the fires are low, and not too many empty bottles hurling from one post to another....

    At least there aren't too many widdle kiddies around in here. My last scan of CMB while still in stealth mode, I saw yet another thread with the headline: "Winning streak starts next week at KC" :laugh:
    Gawd bless those sheep :confused:

    I sure wish we'd have been told not to expect better at the beginning…
    but if we run, I'm sure we can catch up with those goalposts. :)

    I blame the pron mustach which PR is sporting. Talking of pron staches, did you see CBJ's pron stach? I think Vivid "Entertainment" will be calling CBJ soon! :sneaky:

    Seasoned Bolt fans should be accustom to these kind of failures, think Pastorini, Campell and Billy white shoes. Nuff said.

    Time heals all wounds and that was one of the worst losses when it comes to real stinkers.
