    Was easier to take than this.

    The Chargers have in two consecutive games jumped out to a big lead, only to squander it in the second half.

    Rivers and the O, what used to be the strength of this team is not a liability.

    This is disgusting, all the times I backed the Bolts, stuck up for the coaches and players. They have stabbed me in the back because they cant play 60 minutes.

    Well. There is always next season right? Yes I have lost any cautious optomism.

    Have at me.

    I'm with you. As currently constructed, this team is just good enough to get beat and will never amount to anything. I've been a never-say-die type too, always trying to look for the positive -- until now. This team has no heart at all, and that got proven in spades tonight for the whole country to see.

    We might as well be the Chiefs, at least they KNOW they're bad.

    Blow it up...the sooner the better.

    I don't blame you. Sure, it may have been the O-line's fault for some of it. But any other QB in the league would have held on to a 24-0 lead. Why didn't we stick with the run at 24-7, 24-14? Why did we panic and gift them that win. I feel sick, I don't know what else to say.

    There comes a time when us die-hards are allowed to crack too. And I think the time has come after that performance.

    Because that is what the Chargers do, that is what they always have done. Football season for me is over, but life goes on. No sense dwelling on it, too many other things to concentrate on.

    What is worse. Much worse is tonight I realized that the Giants got the better end of the deal. Eli has out played Rivers. At least Eli can engineer game winning drives. Rivers cant even manage to handle a 2 minute offense... I wish I could feel and think differently, but I cant.

    I like to just chill out after a loss, not read any articles, not comment on any forums. But now its different, I just can't sit here and let it go. This isn't a normal loss, this is an absolute disgrace and we wont make the play-offs if we can't handle that sort of pressure. This game should have ended 31-17. We should have run some clock, punched it into the end-zone once more, Held them to 3 and outs and made them kick a FG.

    At this point, the Chargers do not belong in the playoffs. It's time to haul out the dynamite and blasting caps and blow this thing apart, spare nobody.

    At least during the 1-15 season, you just knew it HAD to get better. That was my first year as a season ticket holder.

    Right now? O-line is a big issue. But a defensive collapse like that where Manning was PERFECT in the 2nd half? I just can't see where it does get better.

    Maybe you think you're being clever, but "fans" who wear bags are weaker than weak.

    "Ok. Well feel free to go find a playoff team. More power too you. :tup:"

    Sound familiar? Kind of funny how you were giving me junk earlier for speaking the truth

    Hexed, you really should learn how to use those apostrophes properly. :p Wouldn't want River's getting mad at you.

    At least the 1-15 team played hard, they just didn't have enough talent to get the Ws.

    I feel like I have a hang over and I had nothing to drink last night. The sting of the loss hasnt faded, and my anger towards my team has only increased.

    The Chargers fans DESERVE and DEMAND better than this. If this is what they put on the field then move! Move to LA, move to Cheyenne Wyoming, hell move to Anchorage Alaska. If the organization, front office, and players dont care, why should we?

    The difference between the two is with Leaf we were not expected to do anything. With this team we were hoping to WIN the AFC West. It still can be done but how many times must we keep climbing the same mountain. And once we get to the top we fall right back down and have to start all over. That mountain is quickly turning into one of those massive dunes out in Glamis.

    I have heard they will move to Manilla in the Phillipines, then they can change thier name to the Manilla Folders.

    Norv has said that they don't practice the 2 min or the redzone. THE MAJOR TWO areas where we suck ***!!! Norv is the lack of a HC.

    it was a painful, shameful loss. but I hold my head high and wear my 2009 divisional championship shirt today. I'm a chargers fan till they move the team and change the name. I still have playoff hopes for this season. Maybe not as much as I did yesterday but I still got em. Hopefully they can take the bye week and get Phill's head on straight and try and move forward instead of backward.

    Dear Dean,

    Jump up and down - feel that stuff moving between your legs - those are you balls. Now use them.

    Fire Norv.
    Fire AJ.
    Get someone in here that will put together an offensive line.
    Watch the team do well and the fans calm down.
