    Bottom line....This season is not over....Serious injuries happen to almost every team each year......We got kicked in the nuts hard with Jamal going down, but this isn't the end of the season.....We played most of the second half last week without Jamal and our defense still found solutions to the Raiders running game which had previously been kicking the chit out of us.....I can almost guarantee you that the Raiders are better than the Broncos and Chiefs after seeing what they bring to the table.....and we still overcame them even after a sputtering start and our players dropping like flies...which we weren't prepared for.

    As much as I hate the Patriots, they don't mail it in just because of injuries...they always find a way.....I think we will too. I have faith that we are going to make a move...or adjust the scheme....we are not going to stand pat.

    We'll see now just how resilient this team is. I think we step up and meet the challenge.

    Good mojo brother and I agree. Let's hope the youngins step up or that AJ can surprise us all with a great move to shore up the defensive line.

    Thanks for the pep talk, and I hope you are right.

    By no means should anyone assume the season is over. However, I can't imagine a much worse week after an opening win. Season is not over, but my expectations for this season have sure changed a lot in 6 days.

    They could all be brought right back with a good performance tomorrow, win or lose.

    Time for some of those guys on the defense to step up. Merriman, I'm looking at you.

    Self-pity is the worst of human emotions....Now is the time to MAN-UP and find another way to get it done.

    We used to have a DC in Cotrell who had no ability to adapt to anything and we would be screwed...Ron Rivera and AJ will find a way...Either the scheme will be changed up or we're going to go get some help.

    We are 1-0 and will be sitting atop the AFCW again when the smoke clears at the end of the year.

    Time to knuckle up and start getting tough. We still have one of the NFL's most explosive offenses, great personell on the defense side....led by a very good X's and O's D Coordinator....and one of the best ST units in the NFL...in all phases. I hope teams sleep on us because of this.

    Stick with the team. The world is full of chicken littles thinking the sky is falling and all is lost because we lose one guy. Let the new blood do their jobs and see what happens. I do bleed blue and gold, even when it goes against my realist world...

    I bet Tom Cruise was wearing a Bolts t-shirt under his dress shirt in this scene.:yes:

    This is how he adapted, improvised and overcame. One of the few movies Tom actually pulled off the bad ***/tough guy role.

    Lay waste to your division. I want to meet you guys in the AFC Championship.:tup:

    We are still on track for a 19-0 season. I expect RR to find ways to get the personal he has to do the job and we will win Sunday. :abq2:

    it's almost like we knew it was coming. Welcome to the age of the gun. With PR pulling the trigger, this team can adapt itself into a passing juggernaut. Sounds like a return to the AFL, lots high scoring, and no defense... I like it!!!

    People around here, including yours truly, have been screaming for more beef in the draft for some time. This is why. That being said, we'll find out how well AJ has selected when we see how well Nwagbuo and Martin play. There is no need to panic, this gives tomorrow even more of an edge going into the game. I really want to see how these guys do. This certainly puts more on PR, Bennett and Sproles to produce. The D has to step up, but the offense needs to put some distance between us and the Ravens.

    Good post, Boltergeist!!! :bolt: :tup:

    I'm hoping that barely escaping from Oakland with a win was a wake up call!!! I just hope the players will prepare themselves for the game this time... cause Norv can't do it!!!

    Face facts B4L haters!!!

    Why would I deny, or when have I denyed it? What's funny about that?

    I wouldn't say "THE" best, but definitely one of our best rosters, allegedly. Let's wait until we have a trophy to call them "the best".

    I'm laughing at my response to your avatar.

    No other Chargers team has a (NFL) trophy, and this team has the best chance out of all of them!

    Yeah, you know, since the others still have a shot and all.
