    The Chargers (1-0) set out in pursuit of the 2007 Super Bowl, chasing the Chicago Bears (0-1) all over the field in a 14-3 defensive gem.
    Ladainian Tomlinson was covered like a blanket all day, and still beat the Bears with yet another TD pass, and a game clinching run. LT was held to 25 yards rushing, but in the end, Chicago was just as beaten as if Tomlinson had run for 200 yards. Said LT afterwards "I went into the game not expecting to have 150 yards, especially with the kind of defense they play, our defense was incredible."  They allowed us to drag around until we got something going."
    Defense wins Championships....

    The first 30 min of Norv Turner's Charger head coaching career was filled with highs and lows. As in 0's.
    Not since Mike Riley was head coach had the Bolts been shut out at home in the first half."  65,000 confused fans. A smattering of boos. But at 3-0, the game was San Diego's for the taking."  Said Charger DE Luis Castillo about the offensive woes "Our offense wasn't exactly rolling early; we knew it was going to be a battle."  To look at the intensity of the guys, the way that the guys battled, the maturity and focus, it was one of those games that we knew at the end we were going to find a way."
    Marlon McCree made a TD saving pick at the SD 3 yard just before Halftime, keeping the Bears out of the end zone. Said McCree ""It gave us a chance to stay in the game, whenever you can get turnovers; odds are going to be in your favor."  I was able to make a play and that feels great."

    In the second half, San Diego took advantage of a live ball after a punt hit the crosswire over a Bears player, and Mr. Tomlinson found a way through the Monsters of the Midway. Chicago bit on the sweep, and all LT had to do was fire the ball to Antonio Gates, Touchdown Chargers!!! Finally- geeze..
    Said Norv "When I got this job, he (LT) said to me, ‘You know I throw it, that was a good opportunity."  We liked the play."  It was the perfect situation and he throws it straight."  When he throws it to Gatesy, it's a pretty good deal.""  Norv is catching on...
    7-3 Chargers and the 12th man were back in the ballgame.

    Chicago never had a chance on offense, Swarmed by the D.
    The Swarm? nah... too Irwin Allen...

    After recovering yet another Bears fumble, San Diego iced things with LT rolling 7 yards into the Chicago end zone, Chargers Touchdown!!!

    14-3 Chargers- time to head for 1060 W. Addison...
    Where is Dick Butkus???

    The Bears were done. Finished, kaput. Given 3 more quarters, they might have finally scored a TD. But I doubt it.

    Final 14-3 Chargers
    Not pretty, but a win is a win. Beats 1-15 anytime...

    Bring on the Patriots, there is some A## whipping to do. Said Coach T- "The great thing is you enjoy the win for a few hours and tomorrow you get ready, we're getting ready to go play a heck of a football team."  We will have to play a complete game to have an opportunity to win.""  AMEN, I WANT N.E." "  Logo gate, part II

    Sunday at 5 on NBC from N.E.
    lets git er done...
