I guess even with the loss it was worth staying up until 2am to watch.... kept me with faith til the last play of the game. Can't wait for the rematch, that two weeks can't get here fast enough.
The amount of penalties on the offense was sickening.... every time we got something going it seemed, it was taken away with penalties .... disappointed that my most hated rival got their second win of the season, but guess San Diego had to finish a game in the fourth at some point this season
Adopted Bronco - 2016/17 - Trevor Siemian
12 penalties for 103 yards. We played like undisciplined chumps.
Whether CJs was a catch or not is up for debate, but the fact that his hands didn't control it? Completely irrelevant. You don't need to use your hands at all for a catch.
A dreadful first half and then a multitude of timely blocks to our comeback contributed to this defeat. That first half was ugly and if we had been 31-3 down we couldn't have complained. But a few times second half I felt we were just building rhythm and momentum, only to get knocked back by stupid penalties and none more so than the one that took CJ's TD run off the board.
I genuinely believe that we would have gone on to rescue a win if that stood. But we've had it all go our way for some time now, a little humility isn't fatal. It's how we react now that counts. We have an extended break now, and then we hit the ground fast against Houston.
San Diego won't compete for the division, so if we are to lose a divisional game this was probably the best one. Definitely not time for jumping on the blame train though, just write it off and move on.
Rivers is potentially the best QB in the division but the level of his competition is much lower this year. The rematch in two weeks will be a very intriguing prospect but I'm standing by my claim that the Chargers will be nowhere near the divisional title by Christmas.
