    At least we got to watch our boys in the divisional rounds this year instead of watching the broncos!!

    Congrats on turning a crappy 8-8 season into something worth watching in the end!

    See ya next year Bolts!

    True.. I sure didn't expect to see us get this far during the KC game.

    Having said that, there are some gaping holes on this team and AJ has to figure out how to plug em. :unsure:

    Nice work this year guys.....snatched victory from the clutches of defeat in the regular season. I'll look forward to seeing your guys against my guys in the playoffs next year.

    they made a very good comeback when they were basically DOA, but I expected super bowl. They didn't get it, they had the talent to ergo its a disappointing season

    QFT. Peyton and Sheli are done. That's something to be thankful for. Let's go Cardinals.

    It was a great season. I'm not sure about next year but the way we came back to even make the playoffs and then won a huge game against a good team was great to watch.

    There is a lot of work that needs to be done this offseason and Sproles must be re-signed.

    The defense will be fixed - now that Ron is at the helm and has an entire offseason to implement HIS system - not Teddy the Hut's.

    The D will be better next year with Rivera staying and Merriman coming back. Thanks SD for the great surge at the end of the season. The last 5 weeks is an early preview of next seasons Championship run.

    Thank you Chargers for a nice ride, and for the multiple memories I will take with me from this season. So many passes by Philip with laser action pin point accuracy, often times with VJack on the other end. Philip's the record holder for most Td's in our teams history. The list goes on and on pertaining to milestones and just mind blowing highlights. This team never quit after losing key components to both sides of the ball.

    The heart of you guys and the grit you showed was something special to watch and feel apart of. Sitting behind the team at the game in Tampa (not wearing my Charger colors :( it was a last second decision, and ticket pickup), was a great experience my 3 and a half year old son shared together. I told Jeremy Newberry I would keep the crowd quite for the team while he was outside the teams hotel, they did the job just fine on their own. Yelling at philip to get his attention, just to shout "Great game baby"! I got Vjack and Cason's attention as well, and congratulated as best I could with the eye contact I had. My son had a great time and didn't make me leave my seat too many times, he also finished his huge hot dog quicker than I, which made me proud. The game had it all, Rivers first game throwing 4 td's, LT looking like LT, Cason's pick six, Jammers monster hit on Garcia. Coop waving goodbye to the local faithful with few minutes on the clock. Leaving the stadium I was on such a high and your play was the dealer.

    I will remember seeing stars emerge onto a grander stage and capture the national spotlight. It's funny to Chargers fans that it takes so long for the nation to learn what we had mostly known all along. The confidence and leadership of our atheletes bleeds into the fans and assures me good things come to those who wait. If our future is dependant on the heart and true grit of the core of this team, we are headed for certain success, and a kick *** season in '09 as bolt faithful.


    If I had to pick THE lasting image of the season it would have to go to Mr. Sproles and his 20+ yard Td run to seal the deal vs the Colts. Truley magical performance by a stellar athelete.

    Many of the team were more than worthy of individual awards, and yet were barely even considered. The professionalism of the players was abundantly clear post pro bowl selection.

    Thank you for a great 08', now let's go out and get a ring in '09!

    I am looking forward to see how this team will do next year, with the same coaching staff and healthy players to start the season. The AFC West will still be in turmoil and could be ours for the taking!

    We already have that. We just need a HC who's smart enough to utize LT, Sproles, and Hester.

    NORV IS STUPID!!!

    I can't say how many times I said this team "sucks" this year only to be saddled up the following week just as excited as the last to watch them. This post-season was a definite treat to get to watch them especially the way things started. Deep down inside I felt that if they made the playoffs they wouldn't go all the way and I truely believe that Pitt was the only team to stop us and unfortunately they did. But that does not and will not take away from a emotional rollercoaster of a year for us.

    Next year hopefully will be our year!

    Hell yes and I was there for both games!! I gotta thank the Chargers for those two unbelievable days..this season had a lot of gut wrenching horriblness but all in all they played really well when theyre backs were against the wall and we just gotta hope that they dont get themselves into the same situation next season

    Roll on the draft and lets see what happens:tup:

    This should be in our memory. 3 consecutive times under the best 8 teams. We'll get another shot!
