    With the group of scrub defensive linemen we are going into the season with, I am not confident we will see a big difference in results. Our line was bad last year, but was understandable due to the injuries. But now we are going to use the same group because AJ refuses to address it.

    One of these days, I just need to accept that AJ is going to do the exact opposite of what he should do.

    Last year we needed LB, OT, or RB, and he goes OLB. This year, we need NT (And RB low a lower extent) and he goes LB and FS.

    WTF!!!!!

    Same result equals 13-3. Beyond that anything can happen can't it?

    Same result is also getting beat by an inferior team in the playoffs.

    The only thing saving our *** is that we play in the worst division in football

    Too bad football is a team sport and no matter how good Rivers is, we will not win without a better defense.

    I'm confident this Charger team will play an excellent role this year. The linemen O + D got experience last year and grew with it. The 53 roster will be filled with depth.

    This scrub d-line wasn't the reason we lost in the playoffs last year, it was because we couldn't run the ball. Seems to me we addressed our largest hole. If you honestly AJ is refusing to address our problems or just trying to ignore them you must be delusional. :lol:

    No, it was because Norv refused to follow the game plan that got us to 13-3. He decided to pull a complete 180 on the game plan, and screwed us in the process

    He still isn't a great player. He is probably about the same as if we would have just kept Brandon McKinney 2 years ago rather than getting scrubs like Ian Scott and Garay

    We lost because we didn't have a running game, with a running game we would have scored more than 14 points, even with all of Nate's misses. The defense held the Jets relatively well, the offense didn't do their job.

    If our defense played like that all season we would have still gone 13-3, maybe even better. If our offense played like that all season we probably wouldn't even have a winning record, definitely would have fewer wins.

    A running game would have settled the offense down and would have worn out the Jets defense.

    And all this time I thought it was becasue of the bone head penaltys. A cb that didn't want to tackle. And some kicker that missed every kick. :yes:

    To me the chargers big problem the last couple years has been over confidence and loosing concentration on the game itself.

    you know what after drafting Ryan Matthews, Darrell Stuckey,Cam Thomas And Donald Butler, i think we will be alot better, we will be harder to run, we wont just be a passing team, the only thing missing is hunter lawerence K from texas then we got this superbowl

    no, we couldnt run the ball to set up play action. we became one dimensional. the game turned into an "air it out" version of marty ball. soooooo predictable. let me tell you something -- by addressing what i believe was our biggest need in RB, we SHOULD improve on defense because we can control the clock a lot better and keep opposing offenses off the field. only reason i say we SHOULD instead of we WILL is because you never know whats gunna happen but i believe he'll get better than < 3 yards a carry.

    we drafted cam thomas too, im pretty jazzed about that. big man from the ACC win.

    Still not excited. We still didn't address the defense enough. Too little, too late.

    I do like Mathews, but I don't expect much out of the rest, at least not this season
