    No one expected this team to make the playoffs.

    They went further than expected, and with a bit a tweaking in FA and the draft, watch what we can accomplish next season!

    GO BOLTS! Thank you for 2013!

    This. I'm not really upset about the loss for this reason. I'm bummed for sure, but the future hasn't looked brighter in years. I am beyond excited for next season.

    All this team ha done is make it to the play offs ad get bounced. I dont get it. Always have good players. **** even hofers and we lose. I really dont get this. We played.good ball in the 4th. But the first 3 quarters we had the 3 blind mice playing football.
    I am beyond pissed. We could havw beat denver. But we choked

    I think it's cause we played way too conservative in the first 3 quarters.
    We knew Bronco's run defense was terrible from the week 15 game and I guess Whiz insisted on rushing the ball even tho RM wasn't on the field

    Just gotta be more risky.
    No pain no gain

    Nonetheless, fabulous season :)

    Really couldn't ask for a better year, 2013-14 describes the Chargers so well.

    Time for Telesco to work his magic this offseason, this team has progressed in certain areas as well as players, now time to get depth and get compliments on both sides of the ball.

    You know Mathews is hurt, you have to start passing and open up the Offense. Good riddance Whiz

    Actually I predicted 10 wins, which we got eventually. Haha

    Shame it had to end like this, but still a nice step forward as a franchise.

    Mike McCoy said it's the wrong time to talk about the good, but he did tell players to "hold your heads high" in locker room.

    The offensive line was a patchwork job at its best. They talked about that during the CBS pregame show this morning. The defense was very hard to read as we did not know exactly which unit would show up from game to game. Special Teams allowed way to many long yardage run backs.Running backs and receivers held their own. Then overall a lack at depth at many key spots started to take its toll. Free agency can plug a couple of those holes. I hope that after one years experience McCoy goes into this draft with a little more understanding of what we really need. Our top three picks came in and did a tremendous job for us this year! I like where this team is heading!

    Gates playing like **** didn't help. He used to be Mr. 3rd down. Now he's slower than molasses and can't make the tough catch.

    Still proud of what our team accomplished this season.

    Kennan Allen, Jaleel Addae, Fluker, Te'o. We got some pretty good young players. Now time for telesco to draft some more defenders hopefully some Corners that can make INT (Shareece Wright) :rolleyes:. And we will be a dangerous team next year. First year coaches rarely make it to the Super Bowl but I really thought this was the year to do it

    I am proud how they never gave up. Too many in game injuries today and not nearly enough quality depth. The depth issue should be helped by another draft and some of the youngsters got a good year of experience.

    The Offense really needed to step up today and they really didn't. Losing Mathews really hurt and the in game adjustments in the first half were not good enough. I will NOT blame Wizzys interviews for that. I just think he didn't change quick enough to a more open game plan. A better showing today would have helped his search for a new HC job.

    The last 4 games we have been awesome at halftime adjustments. What the hell happened today with our offense. The Defense played great allowing 24 to this Broncos team. Im disappointed and at the same time proud to be a Charger fan. Thanks for the fun and exciting season in 2013. Now Ken Wisenhunt, Get the **** out of here with that conservative ****.

    I have nothing to be ashamed of as a Chargers fan! And I do believe that the future holds great promise with what this team has accomplished, and what the new management can do going forward from this season. Just think, first year coach, first year GM, and the team makes the playoffs. At the start of the season, this team had nowhere to go but up. It exceeded all expectations, and the team was only one third down away from continuing an incredible run.

    I agree. Once it was determined that Matthews could not go (full time) we should have passed more aggressively. Matthews had a good season, but we really need a RB that we can count on to be in games like this one.

    Really excited to see what Allen can do next year, but he needs a running mate.

    I have a feeling the Pats fans will be saying that to you after next week.
