    Now that's the way to handle business on national TV against a rival!

    Offense: Tolbert, Crayton Honorable Mentions to Rivers and Sproles
    Defense: Phillips (2 sacks, forced INT), Cason
    Special Teams: No glaring screwups, and a fake punt for 28 yards! Huzzah!

    Gameball to Norv and the coaching staff as well. This team looked thoroughly prepared in all facets.

    Charger pass rush was strong today...five sacks!
    Secondary for making Orton hold onto the ball.
    Rivers...four TDs enough said.
    Crayton and Tolbert honorable mention.

    Secondary

    They neutralized the major threat in the game.

    Crayton, can't say enough about this guy.
    defense in general.

    I'd stick G-2 on Crayton like glue.

    I gotta give this one to the coaching staff. Total team effort.

    The first drive had me cringing. Then we go 3 n out and I'm thinking we cant be this bad. I know I bitch about FO moves but I didnt think we sucked like this. Then the coaching staff made adjustments. The turning point of the game was Casons interception. Great blitz dialed up by Rivera and the pressure forced Orton to make a mistake, we ran away after that.

    Normally cant say this but props to the coaching staff for making adjustments and playing football loose. The fake punt was a great call given our ST's situation/field position.

    This season will be remembered for "the speech" by Norv at halftime a few moons ago.

    Now here comes the Colts. This game will be the yardstick for the rest of the year. The Colts fans are licking their chops to end our season and get some payback. Sunday can not get here soon enough.

    Offense: Philip "I'll just run for it" Rivers...waddle, waddle, waddle, first down!!!

    Defense: The entire defense. Put a clamp down on 'em.

    Coaching: Both Norv Turner and Ron Rivera. Excellent adjustments after the first drive by Denver and the three and out by us.

    I'm still a little concerned with Tolbert losing the ball. Also I didn't like us pulling in the gunners for max protection on our last punt. We can't do that and cover the punt return too.

    All in all a great game.

    No. It was the second to last punt. Royal ran it back to our forty. It led to their last touchdown. They stacked the box w/ ten and we pulled our gunners in to match up...

    Totally agree with the whole team getting game balls.
    Way to take it to the house on national TV.
    If they play like this the rest of the way, they will be Unstoppable.

    Great to have Siler back with the ST.
    Rivers is a god.
    Phillips is the man.

    I can't give one too Kaeding though, I saw at least 2 kickoffs hit the 20yd line, and he's clearly not back from his vaginal strain.
