    Here are some key problems with San Diego.

    #1 What is wrong with Phillip Rivers?
    No need for explanation

    #2. Most fumbles by running backs since 2010
    This is a big problem, they can't run the ball without fear of a fumble. Maybe they should have kept Sproles and Michael Turner.

    #3. Can't close games
    The Jets game was the key to this. Going up by 11 points twice and end up losing.

    I wonder if we catch a glimpse of P. Rivers "tebowing" after throwing 3 int's? :roflmao:

    Here is the WPA graph for the San Diego game.

    [​IMG]
    That humongous spike near the end of regulation is of course, the "phumble", and it, needless to say, was the biggest play of the game (It decreased their chances of winning by 42%). A play of similar magnitude occured in the Jets game when a Rivers pass was picked off (It decreased their chances of winning by around 43%). So it's safe to say that, although the Chargers will put up a fight in the first half, their second-half woes, combined with the fact that the Packers D plays better in the second half, will do them in and net the Packers their eighth win.

    I agree, I don't see them closing us out, their defense won't be able to stop Rodgers.

    Me either one thing that Rodgers does is get the ball out of his hand very quick and he has the mobility to get out of the pocket and make things happen with his feet. Cassel dosnt have the quick relase and dosnt have as good mobility but he still was able to get some good gains when he he did roll out SD D is not going to know what is going to hit them this coming Sunday.

    Yea he is playing pretty bad this year I don't understand why he still has so much hype around him, I see Cwood having another big clutch game along with the Packers victory.

    Please beat the crap out of these guys. Please show up on defense. Please hang a ton of points on them.

    I hate the Chargers and Rivers big head.

    After fumbling that snap which in essence lost the game for Chargers, Mr. Rivers should be more on the humble. The Chargers are just like us on offense. Very good receivers, a nightmare tight end, and solid running backs. The difference is the decision making of the QBs. Rivers, to put it bluntly, is playing like garbage this year. Quite the opposite for Mr. Rodgers. Hopefully that trend continues.

    Rivers does not suck. Hes a good QB that, for whatever reason, is having a down year so far stats wise. Rivers is actually a very good QB. Perhaps defenses have finally figured out Norv and Rivers. Or maybe Norv has been there too long and has wore out his welcome. I think Rivers and the Chargers need a fresh start coaching wise.

    But dont let Rivers stats fool you. Hes a very good QB that is more than capable of beating us if we dont show up to play.

    Norv is terrible and the Chargers never seem to have the right leaders to me. It's like the Cowboys of the AFC at times. On paper they have been amazing. Last year heck I think they led the league is everything; first in offense and defense for most of the season.

    Still no playoffs.

    Maybe this proves at times that stats can mean nothing. They are paper tigers.

    Please beat the crap out of them and show up on both sides of the ball. I think their o line is weaker this year too and has had some injuries. Please please sack Rivers and get some picks.

    Agreed, but the last two games are telling me that SD has bigtime potential to go on a downward spiral, maybe for the rest of the season. In order for them to reverse that they're going to have to play a helluva game against the Pack next Sunday. If the Chargers can jump ahead, they've got a chance. If the Packers go into halftime with a 7+ point lead, Chargers are done. The potential for SD to get demoralized in this game is pretty high.

    I consider this a home game. The West Coast Green Bay Packer Fan Association always tears up Qualcomm.

    Someone is drinking too much kool aid if they actually believe the Chargers are on an equal number with us offensively.

    They lead the league since last year in running back fumbles, they have a quarterback that is leading the league in interceptions so far, and as far as Antonio Gates, I would take Jimmy Graham and Jermicheal Finley over him any day of the week.

    Yeah Rivers is gonna "light us up" just like he did Kansas City a few nights ago missing easy passes and turning the ball over, get real guys. You talk as if we are winless and have no chance in hell of stopping a quarterback that is throwing more picks than touchdowns.

    Rivers has the potential to light things up but at the same time he has just a great of chance of screwing up too. He has turned into Tony Romo in a way. And Rivers is also extremely annoying just to look at.

    The Chargers are weird. They led the league last year I think in defense and offense? (yeah stats mean everything) but missed the playoffs. This year SB dreams were on the horizen again. They could not even get enough pressure on Sanchez or Cassel so good luck stopping Rodgers.

    Even if they have a good start to the game Sunday be patient. The screw ups will come. These guys are terrible in crunch time too.

    His throwing motion is most definitely grotesque.
