    "The most dissapointing team in the NFL VS the most dysfunctional franchise in all of sports, coming to you on a channel you DO NOT HAVE!"


    Of our 4 wins this year 2 were blowouts against playoff teams, and the other two were squeakers against OAK and KC. Do the Chargers have the sack to beat Oakland or have they packed it in this year?

    I hope they beat Oakland. I just don't want Faiders to have the satisfaction of knowing they finally delivered the "mathematically impossible" label to the Chargers.

    We'll never hear the end of it if we don't...but I'm just not sure this team has the heart right now to beat anybody :no:

    If we don't, Norv should be fired on the spot. Because there's no excuse whatsoever

    The dog ate my playbook?

    Al Davis threatened a lawsuit (or a hostile takeover)?

    Is that before or after the "Norv handicap?"

    I figure that Norv by himself represents about a 5 point deficit...with his lifetime .3something winning percentage in games decided by a touchdown or less.

    The numbers get worse the closer the game gets, so I had to split the difference :icon_wink:

    People. The bottom is close.

    Tomorrow night will tell the story. I believe we lose to the raiders in a yawner. 12-6. :icon_eek:

    The Raiders are bad. But our Bolts are really not much better, if at all, right now.

    Nothing we've seen from this team suggests they have fixed any of the problems since that day in Oakland. If not for the Raiders complete lack of interest on the offensive side, we would have been blown out.

    So here it is. The bottom.

    Buh bye Norv.

    An 11th straight win against Oakland would be a minor victory in this otherwise highly disappointing season for me, so they better win.

    Well, with you flying all the way out here, I hope they do win.

    Geez...did I really just say "I hope" we beat the Raiders? :icon_eek:

    Maybe we'll get lucky and Oakland will try a few fake FGs on us.

    I'm hoping we win, but will not be surprised if we lose. We have been Norvacated and I hate it. AJ, please find us a real Head Coach. :icon_sad:

    Everyone is at 9.5, but
    I didn't like 9.5, so I gave the Home town kicker and kicked down to 8.5 :cool2:

    Also Hilton came out at 7.5.

    I think we'll win, it may not be pretty but I believe we will. If we don't, the rest of the season will just be an evaluation of what players are worth keeping in the fold.

    ...NO! And thanks to my knowledge of this underacheiving group of bozos, I've piled up my winnings either taking the points as an underdog against them or giving the points against them as well. I have friends who routinely call me before placing their bets involving San Diego. I have a lot of grateful friends. :yes:

    Yes, but it will be the last win of the season.
