This is gonna hurt

So another season has come and gone for the Chargers, a month ago it seemed impossible to make the playoffs, yet they did. Then it seemed impossible for them to beat the Colts, yet they did. And as soon as people started believing in the bolts, they got killed by the Steelers. Its like the minute they become the favorite, they falter.

First off i would like to say there will be no whining in this blog, the chargers played worse than the steelers and deserved to get beat, end of story. The refs made the right calls for the most part and in the end it was simply that the chargers resembled the 4-8 chargers instead of the chargers of the previous five weeks. The momentum really went the steelers way when they were down 10-7 right before the half and then went on a scoring drive and took a 14-10 lead, a lead they never gave up. From there everything went downhill for the chargers and it seemed like everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong.

Now the third quarter was just despicable because the chargers only had one offensive play the whole quarter, and that was a Philip Rivers interception. Then as the chargers were gonna get the ball back, a punted ball hit Eric Weddle on the helmet and steelers recovered deep in charger territory. But in the end it was really Willie Parker who killed the bolts, they simply had no answer for him and he had a field day against our defense. I really think the chargers need a better defensive end, and i cant wait for Shawne Merriman to be back.

Anways, i guess ill just have to wait until next season for charger football, o well, at least i can root for the red sox until then.

You're absolutely right, the Steelers were controlling the ball all third quarter with the aid of a lucky bounce off of Weddles helmet. That was the bookend of a up and down 2008 season for the Chargers. Changes have already occurred in the coaches section, now to make changes in personnel to shore up a total package.The
