    SAN FRANCISCO ---- Looking to nit-pick a team after a 29-point victory? The Chargers' shaky defensive showing in the first half of Sunday's 48-19 win over the San Francisco 49ers at Monster Park is enough to leave a few brows furrowed.

    For a team that entered play with the league's top-ranked defense and had allowed just 36 points through four games, the Chargers were all but carved up early. Through two quarters San Francisco had rushed for 56 yards and quarterback Alex Smith had passed for 132 more and a pair of scores.</blockquote>
