    "Nate killed us" is your typical football forum style of over dramatizing. I would agree with you had he been out there missing tackles when Maroney was running all over us. Kaeding didn't have his best game, but neither did Tom Brady. If Brady didn't kill us... it is REALLY a stretch to say Nate did.

    I wouldn't say the kickoffs "killed" us. We needed an extra spot on the roster for someone besides a kickoff specialist. Nate was another guy who was playing through injury the past three weeks.

    When the kickoffs land at the opponents 35 yard line and this game is all about field position, there is no stretch to say his kickoffs were a telling factor in driving the stake in our hearts.

    Maybe you think it does not kill a team to see kickoffs land at the 35 yard line or something? It does. Wake the fuc up.

    Nate is fine. Chill with your anti-Kaeding rhetoric parker88fan.

    Kaeding was playing on a bum leg. If you want to blame someone for the short kickoffs, blame the coaches for deactivating Rayner.

    Sheesh Tony... you must be really desperate for some kind of flame war. You are going to have to do better than toss out a few loose profanities to get it.

    While I understand your point... the word "kill" indicates something decisive. Although field postion was a factor in the game... it was far far away from being the deciding factor.

    The entirety of our scoring was off Nate's toe.

    Yep, he definitely killed us.

    You wanted to mitigate it and it was a deciding factor in the game. A big one. It did kill us in a sense.

    The same thing killed John Carney here although, he was nails on FG's. Carney regularly kicked off to the 15 yard line and it got him his walking papers.

    You were so versed in Chargers history I am surprised you have forgotten?

    What was the deciding factor in the game aside from not scoring enough points?

    I will not buy the excuse it was LT being out nor Gates being hobbled because the back ups are capable and have shown it in battle (see the Colts game).

    Parkerfan88 has a point and although he is not everyones cup of tea, he is right.

    T, it's not the point, it's the manner in which it's delivered.

    Yes, Nate's kickoffs cost us field position, but without Nate's fg's we lose 21-0. I blame the coaches for not activating Rayner. Field position was huge yesterday.

    It's just conundrum we're stuck in: Kickoffs or field goals? Which is more important? The Carney reference T brings up is an EXCELLENT point. Carney was NAILS on his fg's but not so much on ko's which ultimately got him ran. Nate is the same way, very high % on fg per apttempts but e hardly ever get the ball deeper than the 10 on ko's.

    Two completely different tasks.

    Nate was nails going 4 for 4.

    The kickoffs were horrific.

    There is no way to defend it other than blaming the wind or his leg. The other dude kicking for the Pats did not seem "as affected" now did he?

    We should have kept Rayners activated and somewhere along the way, LT should have been deactivated. The way I saw LT's knee get tweaked just told me that it was serious. The Chargers tried to play the jedi mind game and so did LT. At least they tried so I can not damn them in hindsight. It was a poker move which almost paid dividends.

    You are entitled to your opinion and the platform to express it. Don't belittle me for expressing mine. I didn't grovel for Shamrock's recognition... and I am NOT going to grovel for yours.

    And as I have stated quite clearly. You are not going to provoke me with four letter words.

    His delivery is no different than Eldwin's "LT's a puss thread".

    You guys are doing a "consider the source" and condeming his post and that is not fair because he does have a point no matter the way it is delivered. PFan88 is no literary Picasso and ends all his talks with me with the word "foo".

    Feel me foo? :lol:

    Well, he didn't help i can tell you that much, but he scares me more at the field goal line. I mean you see that one kick almost didn't go in AHHHHHH.... I was about to die..... Well I think Mike Scifres should do the field goal kicks cause it looks like he could dart it through . Or maybe he should just do all the return kicks idk if thats possible. I just don't think i can handle kaeding anymore....

    The statement made was, "Nate killed us!"

    So I responded with the fact that Nate provided us with our only points of the game. Hardly "killing us".

    What killed us was the inability to score in the Red Zone and our inability to stop the run in the fourth quarter.

    Not Nate.

    If you feel "provoked" because someone tells you to wake the fuc up, then get some thick skin.

    If you feel the need to tell me you will not grovel, that is embarassing. :tdown: That should be a given between men.

    He didn't help. When the Patriots kept starting off at the forty yard line, it can't help your defense at all, not to mention that when they do stop the opposition your offense would be backed up. In hindsight it was obiously a mistake to activate Neal and inactivate Rayner.

    That's an upside down post Tony. I trust you are smart enough to follow your own advice.

    Field position.

    In the playoffs, if you give this up, you are done.

    Same thing happened as I said to John Carney.

    I would say the inability of the defense to stop the Patriots had a little something to do with it on a day when our offense was banged up. The Pats ran for how many yards again? At the end, our defense was flat out gassed.

    I had been advocating the sitting of Rayner for a while now. It was a mistake.

    However, I wanted him sat for McKinney or someone like him. It appears he was sat for LoNeal. Now I have been a fan of Lo for a long time but bringing him in brought nothing to the team. Pinnock can handle his job at least as well. And as for that flare pass to Lo out of the backfield don't get me started. :icon_evil:

    Have we seen the last of Lo on the team?. If we want to move forward and get better I think we have. Pinnock is signed longterm and should be told the job is his provided he can do what is expected in terms of offseason work.

    It is upside down to you maybe but if you feel provoked, that is on you and not me. I am not the guardian of how anyone feels with respect to my posts so I suggest you follow my advise and grow thicker skin. I am not here to tailor how I post and how it offends your sensibilities. This is not Chargers.com for starters.

    It is beyond me that if I tell you in six different ways that I am not and will not be provoked that you can come back indicating I already am! Is that wishful thinking or just problems comprehending?

    This is getting tedious. If you think you need to build your credibility at the expense of others... so be it.

    Look dude you seem to be at a loss on this one.

    The mere fact you are telling me that you will not be provoked by a simple innocous blast to wake the fuc up is not really needed to begin with. It is an understood. The rest of your post about needing platforms is all drama queen stuff I do not give a fuc about. This is football and not chicken **** games of my feelings or provoking or whatever. Get up to speed fast ma man. This is not the slow lane.

    spot on,

    P88 might have thought about the title of the thread given the hyper-sensitivity of some posters around here. But, bottom line (and I'll quote Norv if I have to)

    "We lost the field position battle. That part of our game was "killed" because of the ****** kickoffs (and COVERAGE)
