    I hope you took notes on how both teams played the game and further more I hope you both take note that a team with 11 players in IR just won the super bowl. Spare me complaints about injuries and spare me statements about the team not being able to be aggressive.

    Because one team managed to win it all with a bunch of injured players every team should be able to always do it!

    Exactly learn from both top 2 teams. Even if u don't like what i push for then just do what is clearly seen and copy -n- improve upon it. Why would we do what we just did last year 9-7? Also should be studying what beats the Packers offense I know how to beat it if the Chargers ever want to contact me. Should note how their plan worked well vs the #1 D as well.

    Norv should be required to post about what he plans on improving upon from year to year as ticket holders deserve to know there is hope. Not be allowed to do the same things that got us 9-7.

    A real defense and some Extra Special Teams play and the Bolt's are a SB caliber team.

    This team does not have the fan pressure that the east coast teams would have. Also no local reporters/media calling out the organization. Kevin "The Puppet" Acee will not dare to criticize because he wants access to AJ and his vague comments. As long as he get's his weekly column in he gets paid. No substance required. He is not passionate about the NFL and his west coast attitude shows through.

    wtf is a SB caliber team??

    I mean who are these guys?

    Greg Jennings Jordy Nelson Brett Swain Donald Driver James Jones

    and I think Driver went out with an injury.

    I'm going to jump on the coaching bandwagon. We aren't going anywhere until we fix that

    Two very good defensive teams. Forget the stats, we haven't sported a SB calibre D in... well, forever.

    Only one team can win, but it does eliminate the legitimacy of the injury excuse

    Would they have won if the injured players were not injured?

    Same old sh!t after every Super Bowl. Bravo Lauren for being the first lemming in line.

    I mean I get it... The NFL is a copy cat league, and in Madden NFL you can change team focus in a second and win it all... (Cheat codes help too right?)

    But in real life, teams have to struggle to win games, balls have to bounce certain ways, opposing QBs have to get injured in Championship games... Ertc...

    This "AJ & Norv take note" stuff is bush league and shame on you, Mr. Informed Pod Cast man for buying into it.

    So lets take note:
    Packers ran the ball what... 11 times. Take note Norv & AJ, clearly we do not need to run the ball. Balanced offense will cause us to lose. Are we taking note yet?

    Did Pittsbugh target their goto guy Hines Ward at all on the last drive? Take note AJ & Norv, teams will not target their goto guys at the end of games, so dont waste time covering them...

    So while we are taking note, if we copy these two teams, does that mean we would have won this Super Bowl or the next one? Because I am sure someone will have a "Take Note" Lemming thread after the next one saying we need to change everything again...

    It does? My that is a narrow point of view. Was any one group impacted deeply by injuries on the Packers? Were any of these late int he season?

    The Packers overcame early injuries, had time to get young players experience prior to the playoffs and not one group was hard hit until they lost both CBs for a quarter in the actuall Super Bowl.

    You need to stop being a parrot and read. Accee did call out the organization quite a few time.

    Ever notice how the Chargers fans here dont like any reporter or announcer?

    I read all of the SDUT articles and watch the videos. Accee tip-toes with any criticism so he can get the vague AJ quote. Canepa at least gives them a little jab.

    Ok, I guess we are reading different things. Or maybe he should be like the reporter was with Tomlin, where Tomlin called him out in a press conference and now wont talk to him?

    Also, is it a reporters job to be fan-boy and call the organization out? Or is it a reporters job to report on what the team is doing?

    Also, do you seriously buy into the mentality that reporters and the fans make teams play harder with critiques of the team?

    If so, then wouldnt the boo-birds in philly have boo'ed their team to every Super Bowl title?

    Fix what exactly? I fail to see the paoint you are attempting to make.

    Were the Patriots a Superbowl Calibur team? Were they there?
    Ravens? Jests? Bears?

    In your opinion what makes a Superbowl Calibur team?

    Geez...not ANOTHER "grass is greener" thread.

    Edited to add: I'll remind everyone AGAIN that Green Bay's GM, Thompson, was getting CRUCIFIED EVERY SEASON for the picks he made. Think that'll happen NOW?

    You ended your question with a STATEMENT.

    "I'm going to jump on the coaching bandwagon. We aren't going anywhere until we fix that!"

    So when you STATED that, it made me wonder what exactly you thought needed to be fixed. So if this all confuses you, or twists your currlies then please feel free to ignore my posts.

    The main problem many fans have is we want #1. If we were happy with being good then no-one would post on forums tbh.

    So, many fans want to be #1... Really!

    Your genius continues to astound me...

    Do you suppose the Colts and Patriots fans want to be #1?

    How many back to back #1's has there been?

    Do you not have to be good to be #1?

    Or given Big Ben's history, you can be pretty bad, and hope the Refs give you a helping hand...

    I'm easily confused :eek:
