    I'm sorry guys, I know a lot of you are worried about our run defense and think its the biggest problem with this team right now but after watching the first 2 games and 1/2 of today's game, to me our biggest concern is our red zone offense. To many mistakes, miscues, penalties, and bad play calling is leading to a lot of stalled drives.

    Part of that is based on a complete and utter lack of a running game

    Part of that is based on the fact that we are absent people on our line, and LT is injured.

    But the fact that we stall inside the 10 probably more than any other team so far this year is somewhat frustrating and needs to be corrected.

    The play call on 4 and 2 against a jacked up Ravens defense was atrocious!

    My biggest concern now is O line. Dombrowski is nowhere near ready to play Guard, whatever about Tackle. Dielman is getting beat too. Mruc seems to be just about holding his own. Even Marcus got run over today.

    Was Clary our best O lineman today?. Says it all eh?.

    Until we go find some decent O line beef, we ain't goin nowhere. Against better defenses than we saw today Rivers will not get the time he needs to do what we do best ie. pass the ball.

    Our receivers are magnificient but without time they will be worthless.

    I dunno how but our D line seemed to step it up today. OG looks like a keeper. If the big Canadian comes through we might just scrape by.

    Chargers would be killing every team if they could just score t.d.'s in the redzone. NOrvs got to figure out a run game or short passing way to get it into the endzone. WE don't really need a running game most of the field our passing game is so good. BUt you need to be able to punch it in in the red zone. WE need t.d.'s or were not gonna keep winning..

    This is my list:

    1. Red zone offense
    2. Run defense
    3. O-line
    4. Penalties

    That's the story of the Chargers right now, but thank GOD it's all fixable. 2 & 4 appeared fixed today, we didn't let MIA run all over us, only one rushing touchdown today and that was when we were up and the defense was less than vanilla.

    we need a big fat running back when we're inside the five yard line.

    Ala Pitt and Bettis.

    We have a fat one. Mike Tolbert. He carried the ball loads in school. Why not give him a shot up the gut?, anybody but poor little Darren who must spend mon and tue in the ice tub.
