To illustrate why you never stop scoring. Never take your foot off the gas.

Sorry for the loss. I knew you were rooting for Rivers and the Chargers. Maybe next time.

100%.

Never stop scoring. Both games got close, and unnecessarily so. The NFL is starting (for better or worse) to mimick the much more, never stop scoring, never say die college game.

NEVER stop scoring. I hope the Broncos paid attention tonight.

Denver will smoke the Chargers and the division. They are a passing team first and Manning will put up points.

I agree.

Don't take your foot off the gas. Forget about 'running up the score.'

You play win the game, from the kickoff to the final whistle.

Great observation. CP to you. I had never thought of them as similar, but you are right. More and more they begin to mimic each other.

This isn't about being cocky. It's actually about not being cocky. It's about continuing to play hard even when you're winning to make sure you win.

Exactly. Too many games recently have looked like they are in the bag and then the other team shows up and steals the W.

Must not fall into this trap!

Good point, every season some teams starts off 3 or 4-0, but fails to make the playoff or in some cases, even have a winning season and several Superbowl championship teams have began the season at 0-2.

With that said, I'm really getting tired of watching the Bolts blow big leads and play 2 completely different halves of football.

It’s not as if the Chargers quit trying to score, they came out to start the 3rd Quarter already leading by 2 touchdowns, and marched down and got another one on our 1st drive of the 2nd half. The problem was, Houston moved the ball against us at will for the entire game, and in the end that's what killed us.

Texans just really started winning the battle at the line of scrimmage, and then we looked alot like we did last season, unable to run the ball or to protect Rivers, giving him more than a second or 2 to get rid of the ball.

I think our revamped O-line will eventually be decent, but I figured these early games would be rough as they develop chemistry and learn each others’ strengths & weaknesses.

Well they did kinda quit tryna score at the end there...McCoy is too conservative man, (thank goodness we don't have to deal with that anymore)...he started his run, run, pass whenever I get the lead crap

I'm not trying to pour salt on the wound or nothin, I'm as cool a fan as you'll meet when it comes to being cool with other fans (as long as they're also cool) and their teams, but unfortunately for you, that is gna kill you guys

Unless McCoy let's Whiz run the show 110% get ready for some serious frustration because of the ultra-conservatism of McCoy...otherwise there were some real positives to take from that game (Rivers just needs more help from a better oline and WR's imo), but anyhow, just tryna warn you about McCoy man

BAM! If you don't want the opposing team to run up the score, then stop them.

Things have changed so much over the years. Back in the day, if you have a multiple score lead, you hand the ball to your bruiser RB and whittle the clock down. With the passing game becoming more and more prolific, the idea of running the clock out doesn't come into play until very late in the game.

well it works if you have a good running game, but even if you are running the ball...stop being so vanilla with it, the first three quarters you give different looks, shifts, draws...then once they were up 28-7 they just got really lazy with the play calling....also you have to pay attention a team down by 14 in the 4th will probably try to fake a punt on a close 4th down, I mean how do you sleep on that? you stop that and you win the game.

It’s kinda hard to score when you’re going 3 & out every series like we did in the 4th, vice the 1 in which Philip threw the pick-six.

Once Houston started getting constant pressure, our offensive options were severly limited but it wasn’t from lack of trying, it was just an inability to protect our QB.

Wade Phillips is basically Norv Turner, but on the defensive side of the ball – a great coordinator, but a thrice failed NFL Head Coach.

We’ll see – I still think our O-line will eventually get better, we’re working with so many different guys right now, and working out the kinks.

It may be far too early to speculate, but I feel that Mike McCoy is definitely an upgrade over Norv Turner, and I’m sure I’m not alone in that assertion.

I miss the Bolts having that ability, like when LT was in his prime – everyone could know which way we were going to run, and still couldn’t stop him.

When LT was backed up by Michael Turner, we really had it good and I really miss Mike Tolbert in that regard as well.

Sproles...
So much awesome talent has come and gone in Rivers time. I kinda feel bad for him. PR is a very talented QB and has laid my team to rest on several occasions.

Yep, if y'all could've taxed the clock, the outcome would've been far better for ya. I was rooting for the Bolts on this one. Would've liked to see Houston get dropped in the AFCS.

You guys have never done the Colts any favors :)

I can't remember the last NFL team whose running game could consistently produce 1st downs against 8 man fronts. Going into a shell on offense is a recipe for disaster. I was glad to see the quick pass left in the Bronco's final possession that shows a willingness to buck the run only trend when up big.

Ha, do I remember that all too well...most frustrating thing in the world watching him destroy us every game, especially when him and Rivers were doin their thing together for a couple years there

Obviously you never want to stop scoring. I think it's more about not going into conservative mode when you have a comfortable lead. IE what Fox loves to do and McCoy. Trying to run out the clock. Only calling safe plays.

I think Gase is going to be good for Fox. You could see a little of it in the first game. They went into a conservative routine for a few drives in the 4th but then they started to use Manning's ability to dink and dunk. We have play makers and we are finally using them.

Last night, I saw the typical McCoy game. Very vanilla. I hope for Chargers fans sake, he changes his ways.
