    Today on Twitter, the Chargers asked the following question:

    chargers San Diego Chargers
    With three of our first four games at home do you think the #Chargers will start fast in 2011?


    Now this is in part to keep the fans focused on the Chargers actually playing games in 2011, but also addresses abn issue that we here have discussed, argues, and pined about at length.

    So lets take a poll of BoltTalkers and find out what you think...

    They should start strong with several home games to begin the season but since they are notoriously bad and getting out of the gate, I don't think there is any reason to believe that will change.

    They haven't since Norv took over, even when we had cakewalk games, so I'm very much doubting it

    Every year is different, but slow starts have become a pattern. We can hope for a fast start, but it would be foolish to expect it.

    Well to be fair, the O and D would have had us off to a fast start last season if it wasnt for the damn ST colapses! GRRRRRR!

    It is just something different every year that causes our slow start problem. In the past it has been bad defense or offense play that caused our slow starts, last year it was special teams. This year, it will just be something else and Norv will get a pass again from management

    Yes, but it's always something...... that was my point. I'd love for us to break the pattern, but I'm not holding my breath. With the lockout, it may be a slow start to the season period that causes a problem.... who knows?

    Norv may not last through another slow start, that is, if they have a full season.

    Agreed. No excuse to have a top O and D and get off to a losing start!

    It's possible that with the lockout we may not have those first 4 games to play, so in a backhanded way that would be a positive...

    I think you are nearly as bad as that tool Rich Eisen with all of your Twitter sh_t.

    So if this:
    NFL schedule has room to make up lost games - ESPN
    ... comes to pass. I suppose that can only be to our advantage. God knows the Bolts drag their butts on the ground like dogs with a bad case of the worms in September. From a PR standpoint - and just in general - it would suck having to miss the September 11th kickoff game, but we'd be starting in October.

    Only other drawback is it would push our game IN Chicago from mid-Novemberto early December which means a greater likelihood of crappy weather. And it would physically pain me to lose to Cuddles the Diabetic Wonder.

    To thoughts looking at this:
    1) Does anyone else notice the ominous white stain edging Irvin's nostril?
    2) I'll bet someone either showed him naked pictures of Jerruh's wife or a really HUGE rock!

    I have mentioned my dislike for the uniforms and for Twitter FAR LESS than many people on this forum have beat their dead horses. Find the last post where I mentioned the unis, and whenever it happened it was awhile ago and in response to someone else bringing it up.

    I just don't know why the Twitter enthusiasts have to mention it all the time. It's like a cult or something. Do you win a car if you mention it the most? If so, you're close but Eisen still has you beat.

    I know but if I, your friend cant twist your short hairs who can? :lol:

    I know, see statement above... *nudges with elbow*

    Well I would disagree that I mention it all the time and point out that it was actually key to why I started the thread. If I just said "The Chargers asked" then I would be inundated with posts asking me to provide a link...

    Oh yeah, in parting....

    Yeah, you can hear sh_t five minutes before it gets reported somewhere else. It's invaluable.

    I am proud to be a curmudgeon! I hate people yapping about Twitter as much as I hate hearing about Justin Beiber, Lady Ga Ga and the royal wedding. These are all things I couldn't give two sh_ts about by I am ear raped daily by people that have to tell me about them.

    Anyway, Twitter should be the domain of bored schoolgirls, not grown men.
