    Boy I hate being 1-3...We are the talk of every damn show on TV. Anyone remember the song "always something there to remind me.."

    Holy hell, I think I heard them mention our collapse on a food show this morning...

    But, that being said, Mort mentioned on ESPN that he thinks we still win the division. Anyone else think that is a realistic hope for us fans, as we can all see the on and off field problems? LT and Rivers didn't hang on the sideline. LT left the field on numerous occasion pissed. The secondary only surprises me in that they actually look a bit worse.

    Agree...Head outta *** is important. How does that happen, and can it happen mid season?

    I can only base my opinion by what I've seen, and I saw this team lose at home to a bad team by showing absolutely no heart in the second half. I'll keep my expectations low, so that the team doesn't rip my heart out again.

    The only thing saving our sorry azzes it that the rest of the AFC West sucks too. Head out of azz would be a good start for this team by everybody. Coaches and players. This current team doesn't look NOTHING like that 14-2 team we had last year. I think it starts with Cotrell though. It's time to fire his arse and promote Rivera. We need shake things up at Charger Park!!!!

    How exactly are we supposed to win the West when we can't even win @ home vs. the Chiefs?

    I want to believe, but it's getting harder every day.

    We have to be 3-3 heading into the bye. Then we have a realistic shot at going 7-3 the rest of the way:

    Texas
    @Minnesota
    Indy
    @Jacksonville
    Baltimore
    @KC
    @Tennessee
    Detroit
    Denver
    @Oakland


    The way the schedule lays out, we REALLY needed to be 3-1 right now. We've got a tough road ahead even with victories in our next two games.

    PS. If we lose one of the next two, we're toast.

    Word. I don't think I'm going to watch this Bronco game Sunday. My health is at risk if I do. I'm breaking out the golf sticks and recording the game on the DVR (Tivo). Somebody call me when the game is over. I'll be on the 18th teeing off......

    The bad news is we've lost three in a row. The good news is that we are only one game out of first place.

    And how do you expect to beat these teams?
    I want us to but I don't see how.

    It's clear Mort hasn't watched a full Charger game this season.

    This Chargers team winning the West would be akin to a mentally retarded child suddenly transforming into Mensa member.

    That reminds me of Mike Riley's first year. We had a bye in week one, and every other AFC West team lost.

    So we were alone atop the division standings at 0-0.

    :lol:

    Yes I think if we SHAPE our losing butts up RIGHT NOW, we can win the division. :bolt: And that starts with winning the *$*%&*$ next game!

    And I really want to win the division! :icon_mad:

    The way we beat these teams is by playing with some consistency and finishing games strong. That's what's been lacking the last two weeks. I think it can be done.

    No, it's worse than that: the Chargers can't even find the opponent's QB with eleven guys and a traffic cop directing signals.:tdown:

    I love reading the weeping losers post. After 40 years of being a Charger fan, I've come to learn the heartbreak of losing. I don't like it, but it's out of my or any of y'all s hands.

    Blame whoever you wish, call out anyone you wish, but we haven't got a clue into the inside of this team. We only know what we see, and no one in here can tell me they are right without doubt.

    All of our players and coaches look as if either one has a damn clue. Rivers has been getting pounded. LT isn't picking up blocks on the blitz or turning around to catch the ball. Other than Gates who is still playing the game and helping PR out, no one looks like there have a clue as to what in hell is going on.

    I'll still watch next week and if we lose, I have to ask, what in hell is Dean Spanos doing? is he even watching his team? Has he called AJ on the carpet yet?. Dean needs to grow some balls, AJ is good but he's fawked up big time with Norv. :bolt:

    One game out after four games in a weak division, of course we can still win the West.

    But we won't. I just don't think they can mentally pull it together by next week and winning in Denver is pretty tough and a 1-4 hole is rarely climbed out of.

    Completely wrong. I will take my crap for it with a smile on my face.

    At least I stepped up and made my call though.

    The AFC West is horrible. First team to be average wins it by 2 games. Our talent level should mean that is an easy call. Hopefully our players pull it off
