    Very easy.

    Your QB was worse than ours today. Made less mistakes, no questions ASKED but made zilch for plays.

    We very simply played you like we played the Rams.



    (that being said, if you keep this team together, you really WILL be a force to come over the next five years. I'm a ****** gloater because you guys deserve Kudos for shutting our Offense all but down)

    Two major mental mistakes by the defense gave the Pats 11 points.

    1.) D'Flo's PF after the Patriots fumble that would have been 4th down and 13 at their 37. They would have punted. Instead, first down and a FG a few plays later.

    2.) McCree's choosing to INT the ball instead of just knocking it down. It was a fuggin 4th and 5!!!! Knock the ball down and give it to your offense. Instead, fumble and a few minutes later, Patriots TD + 2 points.

    Pats didn't do ****. They got so many bullshit calls their way and the Chargers shot themselves in the foot. That McCree fumble was pure luck so Pats fans can SHUT THE F*CK UP now. Eric Parker got a blow to the head and no penalty was called... ****ing BULLSHIT. Marty calls a timeout before the 2pt conversion and they don't give it to him... BULLSHIT. Light and Kaczur clotheslining Merriman all game and no call.... BULLSHIT.

    Because of biased officiating, uncharacteristic dropped balls, a parker muffed punt and a mcree fumble, a ghost holding call on Goff, personal fouls on two hothead-meatheads florence and olivea..... the list goes on. It is pure favoratism and pure BS. **** you and **** all pats fans they are ungrateful pieces of dogshit.

    The players lost this game. They ain't ready for prime time.

    Marty did everything right. I hope he sticks around, but he might take the fall.

    Do you disagree. The players cost us this game not the coaches.

    Everytime I watched Merriman going around the corner, he was being held (clotheslined) and no calls! The only way we couldn't get to Brady was holding by the Pats O line. How about the non-pass interference call on LT in the first half?

    Besides that, how many times have we seen Chargers DBs intercept a ball then fumble (see Buffalo game) or drop an easy interception? How sure handed has Parker been all year yet fumbled twice in this game? Why were our receivers dropping so many balls? Why couldn't VJ keep his feet inbounds on the TD pass. Why is it our offense only scored 21 points with all the drives we had inside the Pats 50?

    Lots of blame to go around, mostly on the player but also coaching. 4th and 10 and not kick a FG on the 30? Rivers gets sacked next play. Not stopping the Pats at the end of the 1st half. Marty throwing the red flag on the McCree fumble. What was he thinking? That timeout could have given us more time at the end of the game.

    And finally, how many times is Kaeding going to shank a critical field goal in a playoff game? Granted it was 54 yards and short, but I've seen other kickers (non-Pro Bowlers) this year hit those.

    This is definitely the most disappointing loss I've felt as a Charger fan.

    You are right on there in regards to Merriman. His neck was almost ripped off at least 5 times. Definite ref bias out there I think. But it didn't cost us the game. We went out of our way to lose this game with bonehead plays.

    Impossible to defend the coaching staff when it is glaringly obvious the team is not very disciplined. Discpline comes from coaching. I always thought Marty was a discipline type guy, but I guess he talks it doesn't walk it.

    Yeah, that too. Although, I was focusing on the defensive errors.

    Bottom line: A lot of these "young men" need to grow up. Florence with is ridiculous head butt penalty. Olivea with his unnecessary roughness penalty. Stupid.

    As for the mishaps while actually performing your job: Missed INTs, Fumbles, dropping easy passes, etc... well... that's just a complete lack of concentration.

    I can forgive the lack of concentration to a certain degree, but the stupid stuff... f\/ck no. Pull your head out of your *** and realize what it is your playing for. Unless you want Tom Brady and the rest of his comPatriots to rub it in your face every year.

    You pushed that team of jugheads around for 3.8 quarters.... only to have them stick the red hot poker in your ***.

    Let the sting of that sink in and maybe these kids will grow up next year.

    All the off-field problems was a sign of how much 'stupidness' was bringing this team down. That, if anything, needs to be fixed!

    This kind of stuff starts much earlier than that, it is engrained in the mini-camps and training camp. They have to be on automatic pilot once the season starts on keeping away from the mental discipline errors. It is a mindset the coaches must get their players in.

    The Krafts are not successful businessmen?

    Or all the other successful owners?
