    I don't think Phill will get Offensive player of the week.

    So the Bolts play every other week. I doubt that trend will hold based on we play Indi next....

    Somebody tell me why we consistently run the draw play when it gets us a meager 2 yards if that?

    Clearly the Raiders weak spot was the passing defense. When you turn the ball over 5 times as well, your not going to win a game. Poor job done by the Chargers.

    This coaching staff is too inconsistent. A great gameplan and coaching last week, followed up by a complete stinker this week.

    We pretty much bit the big one in all aspects of play tonight...everything good was after we gave the game away. It is a long season...I will be here to watch, but have very low expectations. I still watch the Padres too...just don't have anything better to do.

    Rivers made mistakes, but the game was pretty much over. He just struggles turning the "down field" game in to a winning proposition. He needs the short game to open up the down field game.

    I agree. He made the mistakes because we were behind. We lost this game in the first half and that was an entire team loss. The raiders didnt even give our boys any KY before they made them their beeotches....

    And on primetime... and on MNF. We may be the only West Coast team that's better off getting scheduled for 10am PST kickoffs.

    I had the opposite impression...they put the game on so late
    that most East Coasters aren't going to watch a 2-2 team against a 1-3 at that hour.

    Then, just in case, CBS did everything they could to make sure no one on either coast
    was going to see or hear this turd. I honestly can't remember this many technical
    difficulties in a game in 20 years.

    Interesting...here in the North West the game was on the NFL channel...only once did the screen freeze. Other than that 20 second interruption there were no issues.

    Choked the Chicken.
    That "defense" looked very slow.
    Oh well...at least Keenan Allen got some
    valuable playing time. Still had a chance at
    a 3 TD game. Mebbe nex time...

    Here in San Diego, audio was initially in Spanish...then choppy...then non-existent.
    Then the picture went for large chunks. Here in La Mesa (Cox) highly defective broadcast
    plagued both ch. 1008 (HD) and ch. 08 (old school network).

    As bad as this loss is, the Bolts still could have won this game even though the Raiduds were playing well for themselves. Rygina looks done in Dego and a change in his environment might do him a lot of good down the road, like in Tampa maybe?

    What defense? oh yeah that's right it's the Pagano "Ghost" defense it scares the hell out of Bolt fans. This edition of the Bolts has to play perfect because they can't overcome their self inflicted wounds during the game, quite the conundrum.

    The kicking teams all work sometimes but seem to take to much time off during the game, to many intermittent malfunctions.

    Rivers needs to stop with his Eli impersonations especially since he doesn't have a running game to keep defensive units honest.

    Yet, if you switched over to the NFL Network channel, everything was just fine. It's a conspiracy, I tell you!!!

    I changed channels to the NFL Network too. There was a Spanish language game broadcast that kept talking over Dan and Ian.
