Easily one of the worst play calls I've seen in a long time.

I think Norv is the perfect coach for the Chargers.

Similar to Al Davis being the best owner for the failures.

Well, by all reports they were supposed to have wrapped the division up by now, so I can understand their disappointment.

Hopefully they can go 8-8 or 9-7 and keep Norv for another year.

Personally, I'm not as down on the team as the noobs at .com are. In retrospect, going to a jumbo package for the last two plays of the game was stupid when Rivers was running the no-huddle spread so effectively, but then again if Dielman doesn't **** up and forget to block Ray Lewis then San Diego probably gets a first down and another chance to punch it in.

The offense failed in the red zone, but putting up 26 points isn't bad. Unfortunately the defense is in flux with all the injuries along the D line and Baltimore was able to exploit that. Guys like Vaughn Martin and Ogembi Nwaghbo are being asked to start when they should be rotational or even gameday inactives at this point in their careers, and not only are they starting but they can't rotate out because there isn't anyone behind them. Plus they have to take turns manning the nose spot even though nobody on the roster is ideally suited for it. The only good thing about the situation there is that the lack of depth was exposed early and the Chargers still have time to make moves to address it.

And fortunately Denver doesn't get to play Cincinatti and Cleveland every week.

That FG inches from the goal line on 3rd down was epic fail.

Bad formation switch and terrible, terrible call. I dont know what Norv was thinking there or his decision to kick a FG from the 5 yardline on 3rd down with 15 seconds to go in the first half.

Norv stunk today with his coaching. Oh well, ....14 games to go and hope we get things rolling. Need the defense to tighten up. Losing Jamal for the year is a biggy.

Oh and for the hundredth time....chargers.com is a horrible forum with lots of kids posting there.

Norv absolutely sucked rocks today yet the Chargers outplayed Baltimore, which no one gave them a chance to do.

Taking the ball out of Rivers' hands at the end of both halves was the biggest WTF moment I've ever seen Norv do. If he learns from this, it's all good. We'll see...

There's a lot of positives I saw in this game. Run defense still struggled but showed signs of improvement. Rivers played out of his mind especially with the patchwork o-line he has protecting him. Cason keeps improving every week (though he had that one screw up on a TD pass today.) Sproles is downright scary when he gets the ball in space. Vincent Jackson just tore up that Baltimore secondary. Bennett was running well though I don't understand why Norv stopped giving him the rock.

I'm with 400 and Boltjolt. I'm not pissed about this game like the fools over at that other message board are. The guys played their ass off and played well enough to win. Norv is the one who held them back today. It felt like I was watching Norv morph into Marty during a playoff game today. As much as it pains me to say this, this horrible coaching job by Norv today was completely out of the blue and it was out of his character to do.

But it's week two. And there are a dozen teams out there that are completely Jekyll and Hyde right now. You don't know which version will show up next week. And the Patriots and Steelers look more like crap than Super Bowl contenders so far but I bet that won't be the case at the end of the season. Gotta let things play out.

Watching the Chuggers game today reminded me why the Moreno pick was such a good one for us. SD had their eye on him, and would have drafted him if we didn't take him. Can you imagine that? They would be grooming Moreno to take over for Tomlinson right now.

As it stands, they've got a broken down Tomlinson (who's fading fast), a midget lightning bug (not the guy you want carrying the ball on 4th and 2), and a bunch of other stuff (that won't be confused with an NFL starting running back).

By picking Moreno, we strengthened our team and weakened the Chargers all at once.

I thought they did pretty well considering the O-line injuries they have.

They can't run ball very well so thats a concern for them. Rivers is amazing though he will have them in every game.

They weren't going to pick Moreno. Not like there weren't plenty of RB's to choose from. Still could of picked McCoy which would of been my choice for us. We didn't pick a RB till the 4th round in a very good class and ended up cutting him.

The Chargers had no interest in Moreno. There was already $13 million tied up for the year between LT and Sproles and they needed help in the trenches far more than at skill positions. I think Moreno was a dumb pick for YOU guys since you already had cheaper options who are just as effective.

This proved to me that Rivers deep down is a wuss. Winners want and demand the ball at the end of the game. If Rivers wasn't such a scared little baby, he would've audibled out of that ridiculous call at the end.
