Chargers are pretenders, not contenders...

    According to the latest Jarrett Bell article.


    I'd have to say that the whole "continuity" thing with Norv is a big, steaming pile of manure.

    the dude's record speaks for itself...


    Rod Woodson was on Total Access the other night talking about how a team takes on it's coach's personality...too bad Norv is such a pansy.:icon_evil:

    Today on Total Access Rod was saying that we're still a contender & should easily win the AFC West. That says a lot when he's usually on Denver's jock. But, we are in a weak division this year. Personally, I think we're very elite in talent, but sucking hind tit on coaching.

    It certainly would be nice to see a lot more fire & heart from these guys this year. Maybe something more along the lines of the comeback games of Cincy & Denver from last year.

    AJ hired Norv Turner, and he killed Jesus.

    What, exactly, are they "pretending"?

    Does this guy even know what the term means?

    They're 4-4 and not looking so hot, they don't even qualify as potential "pretenders" right now.

    We have barely pretended to be an average team.

    Not even average right now. Peterson managed to break a huge record against us. One or two more plays for him would have been 300+. That is not average, expecially with the guys we have out now.

    The chargers have the ablity to explode and kill opposing teams. Or they can go into a coma and let teams dictate what happens to them.

    Earth to the chargers coaches. Attack. Attack, Attack both on offense and defense. Don't do a marty and just try and win a game. Win the game by winning it.

    Totally agree. :tup:

    I'd much rather go down in flames and die by the blitz than to just sit back and wait for the offense to dictate the game to me. Kinda like what Minny just did to us, bring the f'n house EVERY PLAY.

    NO. :no:

    You live by the blitz and you will die by the blitz.

    We do not have the depth to even begin this kind of defense. You need to rotate a fresh nose tackle and at least two kickass ends. When we have that and another LB who cleans clocks, then and only then, do we attempt to go Jack the Ripper on any team.

    I somewhat agree with the article.
    Contenders dont get smacked red by a pansy *** team like Minnesota.

    And dont give me crap about "we needed an eye opener." We've lost 3 games by 14+ points, OPEN YOUR DAMN EYES!

    After watching MY team get worked like cheap whores, I realized, even the skankiest of hoes can rise to the top - just like Anna Nicole Smith.

    This season, despite all the chin dribble, could be the Lombardi orgasm of our dreams. :bolt:

    Only if we get more aggressive. We should now be able to man up on the Colts and blitz more.

    Did you also catch what Jimmy Johnson said on the fox show....something in the realm of "...yeah, firing Marty hurt them, but I also think their talent is overrated."

    Like it or not, we have everyone out there calling us out.
