    The Chargers have had a disappointing season so far in most fans eyes. This week in 100 words we ask you to tell other fans what your fix for the Chargers would be.

    You'd start first with a sentence or two that introduced yourself.

    Then ask your question or state your thoughts as to what the key point was. Start the word count at the beginning of your question or key point. Your introductory stuff and your prediction do not count against your word count. And, to be honest, just get close to 100 words. I am not going to trim you to fit; 120 would be fine, but 200 would not.

    I think our main problem is lack of preparation. In 4 out of 5 games, we were completely unprepared to start. It shows because we've had to dig ourselves out of a hole in the second half. I don't know what our coaches are doing (or not doing) but this tells me they are not disciplinary. Which is part of coaching. I don't care how much the odds are in your favor. You NEVER overlook your opposition!!! My suggestion is that the coaches grow some freakin' nads, take the bull by the horns, and restore some order before things get out of control!!! If they are incapable, then they don't belong in NFL.

    I yearn for a day that our team DICTATES offensively and defensively rather than reacting to what the other team does. When we have a team on the ropes, knock them the f*ck out! On defense, let's challenge people. I'm tired of watching our guys line up 7 yards off the receiver. If we get beat, at least we didn't just give it away. Some will inevitably blame the current coaching staff, but it's pretty much been this way forever.

    I am a 25 season Bolt fan from Scotland.

    Offense - stop trying to prove we are still a premier running side - LT's 41 yarder vs raiders was NOT vindication. We need to put faith in Phil from the get-go and throw the damn ball. Also, every pass does not need to be a 20 yarder. Short slants and screens work and can help set up the run game, for balance. We need 2nd and short, not 2nd and 12.

    Defense - the line aint working - so blitz baby, and force the pace.

    Enormo is a long time Bolt fan and a super nice guy.

    Norv has installed an offense that doesn’t run predictable plays based on down like Schotty did. It’s what fans have wanted. However, a more complex offense with unbalanced play calling has led to execution problems and has killed the offense’s rhythm. Miami was a prime example. The first drive featured a good mix of runs and passes and the ball was moved. Then Norv gave up on the run and penalties and missed blocking assignments etc. piled up. Norv needs to re-establish the run and stretch the field with vertical routes off of play action. Establish the basics and then get more creative from there. On D? Be aggressive and get a *real* backup for Jamal.

    I think one of the problems is injuries...

    On Defence

    SM the best D player in the NFL out for the year

    His backup JT injured

    Cooper out for the frist 4 weeks give him some time to to get back in shape

    On Offence

    are all hurt

    And now Chambers is hurt

    McNeill missed some games and these are just some injuries that we know of...

    Our offence is messed up

    I know what ya gonna say... all teams have injuries... :icon_finger:
