    do commentators normally talk up the home team so much? i usually dont pay much attention to what they say unless im trying to figure out who made or botched a play

    It's something you get used to when the Chargers are playing. It's rare to hear something positive from the announcers.

    One of the worst illegal contact calls I've ever seen, ever.

    Nothing happened.

    No bias here, I am honestly telling you Middleton did not touch the receiver at any point in the coverage, and was in fact a couple yards away from the receiver when the ball was thrown incomplete....and the ref threw a late flag after the play.

    If there were no serious injuries, I will declare "victory" and wait for next week. I believe the left tackle competition is now over...and not a moment too soon. I hope people start getting healthy soon!

    The NFL's desire to shorten the preseason to two games is certainly looking more and more sensible.

    This Chargers team is firing on all cylinders and ready to start the season.

    Go Bolts!!!

    Saw the replays of the start of the game that I missed, and ugh the Oline looked as suspect as I worried. Not to mention I didnt see any highlights of our OLB rush gettin any sacks.

    You didn't watch the 2nd play of the game where JJ sack/stripped Cutler?

    No but I know what you mean, after Freeney we have nobody we can count on for edge pressure.

    At LB (tho JJ was in on TFLs tonight--would be nice to see that spill over into reg season). Our front 7 is looking more hybrid than ever before. 5 guys with hands in the dirt on some downs. Hopefully it works--Reyes, Liuget, Freeney all capable of sinking multiple sacks/gm behind line. Thomas has to occupy center of line with reliable ILB backup to prevent 4+ yd runs.

    I heard Johnny Patrick got hurt guys, did he not play much in the end?, not a mention of him above. What about Rinehart?, again no mention of him above.
