    And as a Die Hard Chargers fan and season ticket holder, I have the right to express dissatisfaction and concern about our coaching staff!!!

    Those of you who feel “that means you’re not a real fan”... Well, if you want to continue to turn the other cheek and say “we really won,” that’s your option BUT don’t expect me to follow your *** Clown Parade!!!!
    Last week it was “We played a really good defense.”
    This week it’s “Farve had everything going his way.”

    If by some chance we manage to lose to the Quiefs :)::cringes::: :eek:), then what will it be?
    "We played a team with a really good equipment manager?"
    "We played a team with a really good water boy?"

    I had a bad feeling that AJ made a terrible mistake and so far, everything and anything that I feared might happen is happening!!!
    I witnessed Norv’s era in DC, first hand and everything I’m seeing now looks all too familiar!!! Norv is completely driving this team into the ground!!

    Saying this does NOT make me less of a fan!! That just simply means that this fan has enough sense to realize that we are in danger of seeing the one of the most promising eras the Chargers ever had go down the drain!!!

    I want a Super Bowl title in San Diego and this team is too good not to get at least one within the next three years!!!

    WE ALL WANT THAT!!! So quit this "I'm a better fan than you" crap and focus on reality!!!! So Far, Not Good!!!
    That doesn't mean this season is over!!!

    I will promise to do that (actually I'm in your corner on this one) if you leave my adopted boy alone?!? He is not having a good month and just needs room to rethink.:yes:

    A fan can say whatever the F he wants. The game is played for us, the fans. We are the true judges of right and wrong, good and bad.

    Without us the game does not go on (ask USFL, World Football or any other scrub league that couldn't get fans in the seats.). Our opinions matter more then any other. ESPN can say what they wish, Coaches can coach speak at pressers all they want. If the fans don't show up, then the game is done.

    This is why we must speak our digust or pure freakin joy. The Charger fans gave blind trust in the off season to the Spanos clan on the Norv pick. Currently that pick has sucked and at this point, I am an unhappy fan.

    Screw any sign that says "cheer, don't jeer"...That's gay. Speak you damn mind and let the org know that you are the reason they make fat cash.

    Yep. I just can't believe the local media isn't pushing Norv to take more responsibility during his interviews. They keep feeding him softballs for answers instead of getting at the issues everyone has on their mind. His f'ing polyanna answers are killing me. Someone should ask him about game planning, scheming, lack of preparation and hustle by players who seem complacent. Unless the real players were abducted by aliens, Norv needs to come up with better answers concerning the fact he is taking the same talent from last year and running it into the ground. In my mind, there has to be accountability and a sense of urgency on his part even though it's only been 3 games. I'm fielding more calls and emails from folks I know around the country, and the central theme to their messages is our coaching staff. I tried to rationalize the hiring by telling people it was done for continuity reasons......bunch of crap.
    You know that old saying, "can't make chicken salad out of chicken ****?" Well, Norv has managed to do the opposite and take all of the ingredients for a playoff team, and turn them into chicken ****.

    You know, in the grand scheme of things...
    There are no excuses. We should not have lost the Packers game.
    I am disgusted by that crap defense we played.
    Our defensive schemes wouldn't stop Mesa College.
    LT is playing lightyears away from his potential.
    Our offense sputters when it needs to light up the most.
    Running on 3rd and 13 at our own two yard line? ARE YOU FREAKIN KIDDING ME???????

    I don't need people on message boards to tell me how good of a fan I am and I love this team. Hell I'm debating right now whether or not to drop $600-$700 to come down next weekend to cheer them on. That said it doesn't take a football genius to see that we have some major problems right now that I don't think can be fixed overnight. Anybody who thinks we're just gonna roll in these next three games is still reading preseason press releases because the all three AFCW teams will be gunning for us. But one thing is true these next three games could go a long way in making or breaking this team in 2007.

    Well said. I'm not sure why people freak out when we as fans question our coaches when it's obvious to everyone that we indeed have major issues.

    How many threads do you have to start to express your dissatisfaction with Norv? OK. We get it. You think he's the worst head coach ever.

    I think it's less about your opinion and more about the self-important way that you repeat it over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

    Oh, and congrats on your restraint. You waited until the first loss to say, "I told you so."

    These next three games are not only AFC West but are also very bad teams!!! If we can't beat them, then I don't know what to say about our season!!!

    You started your thread last week with, "I hate to sound like a dick, but I told you so."

    If you really aren't even going to pay attention to what you post, then you should just STFU.

    We lose next week and we will have lost a lot of players. Mentally, they'll chalk this season up as a big waste. Like I said earlier, you can't expect LT, Gates and some of the other guys to just remain patient without saying anything. You're just starting to see that, and if the losing continues it's only going to get louder. You have a lot of young passionate players on this team that aren't older vets playing out a season for a final contract, etc. Losing with this much talent on the team will leave some of these guys scarred and looking for greener pastures.

    If losing continues, I really don't see (many) players looking for new teams. LT, Gates, Merriman, etc. have it too good here for that!!!

    But tempers will flare and it could get ugly!!!

    Well stated. It seems like BOLTS4LIFE's only mission on this board is to say "I told you so."

    As for you BOLTS, I don't question the "fanhood" of anyone who takes the time to participate in a team forum, obviously people that do so are passionate about the team. It just almost seems like you are taking some perverse pleasure out of being "right about Norv."

    Anyway, in the end, I think everyone here wants to be sitting here at the end of the season talking about how great a job Norv did. Hopefully, that is exactly what we will all be doing.

    You brew awesome beer.:icon_toast:

    However, you start way too many threads about the same thing. Any chance the mods could just consolidate them all into one big Bolts4life thread?

    Glad you like the beer. There will be more to come this season.

    There will be better things to post about if we start playing like we did last year!!

    I'm with you. We put a lot of heart into this team, some invest good money in gear and tickets as well as time in this little village of ours and at the least we should be able to expect that the coaches have this team ready to play. As far as I am concerned, and I probably sound like a broken record, the coaches wasted a lot of the exhibition time. This team is just now rounding into the shape they should have been in at the beginning of the season. We'll know for sure this week end.

    Quoted for mother****ing tr00th!

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion, ****, that's why we're all posting here, but when you post the same thing OVER AND OVER ad naseum it becomes redundant and worthless.
