    Weddle had a damn good complete game... Both halves...

    Rivers went all P H I L L I P R I V E R S on that last drive... Very good poise and control of the offense facing a hostile crowd, a crappy field, flag happy ref's, super crappy announcers (believe me, they affected his play, just ask them)... Rivers manned up...

    Leg-a-DO has the best hands on the team.

    D manned up for the most part in the second half. Forced several 3 and outs...

    Sproles had some positives... His hands were suspect in the return game, but this is a positive thread...

    Lastly... Let us hope that Dielman and Vasquez are OK...

    A Dubya is a "W"... We could have easily folded that game... We didn't and won.... Hart and CroMo owe the offense a dinner or 4...

    What were the positives for Sproles? He had a couple of wide open passes underneath at the end of the game, but otherwise, he ran for 2.6 yards per carry, and muffed multiple kicks. The best things he did were the two big returns early in the game where he was chased down from behind. If that was LT, then people would have said that he lost a step, because he definitely looked slower on those returns than last year.

    He scored a TD, had two huge returns, and made people miss... He had some negatives as well, but you can't discount his positives...

    LT had a touchdown too, and I wouldn't say that he had a good game. Overall it was a bad game for Sproles IMO. Same with the rest of the team. Since this is a positive thread, I'll put it the players that I thought deserve some kudos:


    Scifres, for bailing us out after going three and out following a muffed punt, Legs, for having a very good game including some great catches, and Kaeding for hitting his only field goal attempt and doing a great job of directing his kick offs to nullify a pretty good Raiders return game. Osgood and Binn played decent as well.

    Philip Rivers.

    I can honestly say that, after the last Raider kickoff, I looked at the game clock and said to myself, "They left too much time on the clock."

    PR came through; he always does.

    Not a good way to start the season, but I guess the Pats fans are saying the same thing. They got outplayed until the final couple of minutes in their game as well.

    A "W" is a "W" in the column, but we have to STOP GIVING UP 4TH AND LONG PLAYS FOR TD'S !!!:icon_evil::icon_evil::icon_evil:

    Come on HART, MAN THE F*CK UP !!!

    Ask Loren about my texts on the last drive.

    I knew we would win, because I believed it.

    If was definitely Hart's fault. You don't let someone get behind you like that.

    I think Cromartie was a one hit wonder in 2007.

    Positives for me;

    Legedu, he is a star in the making, he and VJ.
    The passing game when Philip got some time.
    The fact that JaMarcus was the starting QB for the opposition. How he was the 1st player taken in a draft I cannot fathom for a second.

    Oh and the officials for denying the Raiders, imho, a perfectly fine TD. (the catch by Murphy with Gregory beside him)

    Our Bolt's were real lucky last night and you know what they say "Sometimes it's better be lucky than good". Great effort on the offense when it counted most, I sure am glad we have Philip in crunch time, he willed this win.

    They showed some compsure and confidence in the final drive.

    They did get the win.

    Hopefully we let some first game gitters out, and our injured aren't too severe.

    I like Rivers. The guy is tough and smart. He's the key to any success the Chargers will enjoy this season.

    Two ugly wins by two fine teams last night. That's what the good teams do...find the way to win the ugly ones.

    ...Ugly wins indeed. I will add this about the Pats. The mass exodus of defensive experience will initially cause some growing pains, especially in the way Belichick always changes up defenses for each game. In the long run though, they'll be faster and stronger and it sucks :tdown:

    You're right good teams find a way to win and everyone who tuned into both MNFG's seen it not only once but twice in one night. I guess lightning can strike in the same place twice.

    Yes we got the "W", but what I think really happened is that a lot of people under estimated the Raiders. LT said he was scared of them, he must of said that for a reason.

    We played like crap. But we got the win.

    Injuries, our O line was getting knocked around like ragdolls.

    Anyone else get tired of those Commentators on TV?
