    They could have crumbled. They could have turned it in. With all the problems they have faced this season they could have given up.

    Past Charger teams would have.


    They didn't. They fought from behind against the team that Merriman said might be the most improved in the West, and won!


    Thank you Chargers! I am proud of you! :abq2:

    QFT!!! I'm not totally sure about the most improved team in the West, but the Bolts never gave up and it proves that doing that can turn the tables!

    It also shows me that when the pressure is on the Raiders return to true form! :tup:

    I was yelling and cussing a lot during that first half.

    But when we took the opening kickoff to start the second half, I knew they had made the adjustments.

    I was getting mad at LT during that first half.

    Cromartie with those 2 flags was reminding me of that Denver game.

    We kept moving the ball.

    I was furious when Keading missed that second attempt.


    The Chargers kept moving the ball.

    We never were able to deliver that knockout punch when we had them up against the ropes.

    I think that LT touchdown in the end was the result of a massive let down by the entire Defense, I think they were looking for someone up the middle to help kill the clock.


    We got the win, and we covered the points, but the way in which we arrived at that point is what is getting in everyone’s goat.

    In my book the guys passed a character check today. PR didn't have a great game, due in no small part to the Raiders' pass rush, but other guys stood tall and took care of business when it mattered most...oh yeah, welcome back LT! :yes:

    Bottom line, they don't award bonus points for style in the NFL...we'll take the win any we can get it whether it's by one or 40.

    On to Miami gang...

    I am very proud of my Chargers.....I was watching the game at my friends house because I live in Donkey land so I could not see it with regular TV. My friends asked me if I was nervous when the first half ended and I said "No" this team is a second half team. I knew they would go ahead because this team is not made up of quitters. I LOVE THE CHARGERS AND I WILL FOREVER..... where are the donkey fans now....:icon_rofl::icon_rofl::icon_rofl: :deadhorse: :icon_finger:

    PSS and the best thing about the donkies losing is they lost to the Chiefs.:icon_rofl:

    they did very well today to come back, sometimes you have to win ugly if you are a very good team. So the Chargers deserve some props but need to make some improvements.

    I wonder if part of their slow start is exhaustion from two physical games in under a week

    What team doesn't need to make improvements? The fact that they came back with a vengence proves who they are for real.....Although I believe the improvements need to be made across the board. The defense needs to be more aggresive like they were in the 3rd quarter all the time.

    The Raiders played pretty decent football for 3 quarters but it wasn't enough to stop the bolts from coming back in spite of the pressure, the physical play and the crummy footing in Oakland. The Chargers have shown time and time again that there is no quit in them. This bodes well for the rest of the season...and we get Cooper back effective midnight tonight.

    10 in a row!!! How good does that feel?

    Go Chargers!!!

    I was really glad to see big blitzes on the last couple defensive plays of the game. No prevent BS, we sent like 8 guys and dared them to get the ball out. That was very cool. :yes: :tup: :icon_banana: :bolt:

    It looked like it was starting inside, but LT made the quick bounce to the outside. The toe is healed. We should be seeing the old LT post haste. This one is going to stick in Al's craw more than most. 10 in a row in a get up off the mat comeback. These comebacks might be fun at the end, but they are no way to win thru a whole season. We need to be seizing games by the throat instead of grabbing them by the scruff of the neck.

    Well, what I've learned here is everyone is entitled to his/her opinion, and you're certainly entitled to yours.

    It doesn't have to be pretty, a "W" is what counts! The Bolts never gave up and made points out of turnovers. That is what will win you games. Way to go guys!!

    I was pissed, shocked, disgusted, etc. during the first half. But through it all, I never really doubted that we would not come back & win.

    Style points don't count any extra - just the final score. :tup:
