Are you calling the 2-5 Chargers a elite team, that was missing all their WR's?
I'm calling the PATRIOTS an elite team. That's why they were able to win on the road against a top-notch offense with their backs against the wall.
The Titans are not elite. Period. Never thought they were, probably why I'm not on a ledge with some of you people.
Good teams sometimes lose games that are within their grasps. That's why they're only good. Can the Titans become elite before the season is over? Sure, just depends.
If their special teams didn't suck they would probably be at least 6-2 right now. They haven't lost a game by more than a touchdown. They have a good offense and defense with an awful special teams. As long as the ST doesn't make big mistakes like today outside of 2 free points, they are really hard to beat. Still we should have beat them though.
I say the Chargers's wr didn't just spike the ball after not being down by contact and Jacob Hester didn't let a backwards pass be picked up by the defense. The Chargers killed themselves against the Pats and lost on a missed FG.
We lost to a talented team who didn't kill themselves for the first time all year. We also need to learn that Michael Griffin still hasn't figured out how to cover Gates man-to-man and probably never will.
They had a great game on offense.Our D was solid but no one made a big play only that Babin sack but the lack of impact plays on D cost us the game.
A loss like this won't help. I don't see any positive in this loss. At least the lose to the Steelers and Broncos taught us a little about ourselves. This just sucks. And to make it worse, we have 2 weeks til we can right the ship.
In NO way was our D solid today. They were down right terrible. They got no pressure on the QB..once again we got burned time and time again by the screen pass. The only main receiver they have left Antonio Gates had 123yrds and avg 24.6 a catch. Phillip Rivers threw for 305yrds with 2 TDs...and to add insult to injury the area in which we're usually good at..the run game..we gave up 106 yrds with Tolbert avg 5.7yrds a carry. I wont even get into all the missed tackles..
Getting lucky in red zone situations is what has accounted for 3 of our wins. Luck didn't swing our way this time. We also seem to get roasted by tiny running backs but seem to contain larger running backs easily.
Philip Rivers: 27/36, 305 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT
If you had told me Rivers' stats would look like that, I'd say we win. I expected us to completely shut down their run game, but we got thrashed. They ran all over us. That was more disapointing than anything.
Stupid, just plain Stupid play calling. Someone explain why we sit on a lead early when we have the Chargers on the ropes (only to have us go 3 and out multiple times) and then when we need 2 yards to get a first down late in the game Fish & Dinger call two passing plays; we should have pitched the ball to CJ and let him get us the first down. A dropped ball does us no good.
