    Dear Football Experts and Radio Talk Show Hosts...

    The San Diego Chargers did not lose to the "Wildcat" offense. The "Wildcard" offense did not intimidate us, take us out of our game or any other BS line you want to throw out to make yourself look smart.

    The Chargers lost to the Miami Dolphins...Yep thats right we lost to the Miami Dolphins. We lost to them because their D kicked us in the nuts and we couldn't dicate anything offensively for four quarters. We drove down with ease on the initial drive and settled for a FG. We ran well early and forgot to run later. The reasons we lost were too numerous to list here.

    In fact, this is the least amount of points our D gave up this year. Our D gave us a chance to win and our offense **** on that chance.

    Take your expert analysis elsewhere... We know our team and we know that we currently suck.

    And I think this highlights the double edge sword that is Norv Turner.

    When Marty helmed the team there were very traditional play calls based on downs. When our run game was working the plan was money. The Oline rolled and wore down the Dline. LT got stronger throughout the game. The D got winded. The Offense got in a rythm. But when a team had our number... run, run, pass, punt was the mantra.

    Enter Norv the "offensive guru." As the team got more comfortable under his tenure Norv has become more and more unconventional with his plays based on downs. We finally had someone who could scheme rather than just execute. Based on these schemes our offense could put up numbers in chunks. However, when the execution's not there and/or our the opposing team get's on a roll, the offense stalls out.

    PHins game case in point. On the first drive, there was rythm. The run was established and the passing game played well off of it. Rivers and Co drove down the field and put up 3. Then Norv got "unconventional" and forgot about the run alltogether. Fine, we've put up heaps of points in the fourth quarter this year just relying on the pass. The problem was that the run was already working and it was just the 1st quarter.

    The next problem was that the offense stopped executing; blown blocking assignments, penalties, some questionable routes. IMO, when you can't pull off the tricky stuff, you need to go back to basics and execute. Re-establish the run, stretch the field on play action. I'm not saying to go back to Martyball but give the players something to hang their hat on. Other than, "pass our way to victory in the fourth quarter" this offense seems to be lacking an identity.

    Maybe Norv is so in love with scheming that he forget's to get his guys to just play a little football.

    The reverse to Chambers that got stuffed on the opening drive was the beginning of the end. :lol:
