that was pure robbery

Listen, im not one to make excuses for why a team lost. But i just have to say: WHAT WAS THAT!!!! I mean were those refs blind! That was clearly a fumble! And the Chargers dont get the ball because the referee is an idiot! How does that make sense? And that strip at the beginning by Champ Bailey, not a strip, but because of the field equipment not working, the Broncos got the ball back and scored. I mean thats just not right! Chargers clearly should have won that game!

Now i am not taking anything away from the broncos, they played a great game, especially Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall. But I would rather have them beat us fairly then have to know all week that the chargers really won that game. I mean if we would have gotten that fumble it would have been a win, no doubt.

Ok, so I'll write my analysis of the game when im not as pissed.

go chargers! Lets win one!

I watchedc the reply of ther Bailey 'interceptions everal times thanks to tivo.  Was it an interception, probably not, but having been called an intercewption on the field I saw nothing obvious to overturn it even if the replay was working.

Cutler's fumble was initially ruled an incomplete pass and the whistle blew, NFL rules prevented the refs awarding San Diego the ball on replay.

As John Madden once said, don't blame bad calls, don't let the game be close enough for them to matter!

Reality is Bolts didn't do enough to win this game and though we are still better than the donkeys, not by any where near as much as last year.

This is a pathetic post. You're complaing that Ed Hocholi didn't cheat after he mistakingly blew the call dead? The fact is he blew his whistle after the ball hit the ground. He made a mistake- Mistakes happen. HOWEVER, the rules are very specific on what must happen when the play is signalled dead. The outcome of the instant replay review was the only possible legitimate outcome that could have followed a play whistled dead. Instead of b*tching the Chargers should have stopped he Broncos offense just once. They had 3rd and goal from the ten and couldn't stop them. Furthermore, Shannahan was nice enough to give them a SECOND CHANCE and went for a two point conversion. They still couldn't stop them when Cutler hit the rookie over the middle. The fact is the Broncos played a better overall game (If it wasn't for the long play by Sproles & the interception in the endzone this was a 20 point win for the Broncos). LT is looking old and the Chargers Defense is awful without Merriman.
