    The Chargers played 7 quarters of shut out football tieing a franchise record.

    Props and deserving of its own thread.

    However, no Chargers defense has had back to back shut outs - ever.

    You blew it.

    It would have been nice to accomplish against the lowly 49'ers to support the Number One Defense in the league.

    Be that as it may, the defense has been playing some inspired football and who would have thought Antonio Garay would make us fans say in unison ..... "Jamal who ?" :)

    Go Chargers (but not to LA) !!!!!!!

    Shutting a team out completely often requires a stupid decision or two from the opposing head coach, like passing on chip shot field goal attempts and then turning the ball over, or falling so far behind that the only thing a FG would accomplish is the avoidance of being shut out.

    We rested our starters on that last drive for the 9ers. They were beat and you could see it in their faces and body language. One td in the last 5 mins mean nothing. Plus Gregory got another int. Cool by me.

    Seven quarters and 10 mins of shutout football...the Defence should get a game ball.

    They are the Maginot line of defense.

    Well, Norv put the second-stringers out so Mike Singletary's first-string offense could at least score a TD in their "Do or die!" game. The streets might already be soaked with his blood if he brought a shutout loss back to SF.
