    There used to be quite a few dupe accounts on the CMB,especially from some of the more negative types that ended up finding themselves frequently banned. So I figured you may have found an IP discrepancy. My bad, for assuming.

    What's going to screw them over is their HC who is also their GM. I see the same disorganization and dysfunction that I see with the Jags. Their main advantage is their QB who also takes more hits than Rivers.

    Would be a strong nominee for a CMB Rushmore. Not saying you'd make it...but a strong nominee.

    I have no idea what you're talking about. I used to post on the old CMB under the same name I'm posting on now & just joined here a couple days ago. I recognize a couple of names in this thread from there, El Tee & Sonorajim.

    setting aside the subjective opinion on luck, as who knows what is luck ... i'll stop u here - i question it. LAC would have stopped them if they got the ball first.

    The backup QB stuff is tired. He's a starting QB. he played a fantastic, almost flawless game. His throws were overwhelmingly precise laser passes right on target. not just to the receiver, but located to the optimal side or angle to maximize reception probability. Brisset had a rating of 120.7. Luck's lifetime rating is 89.5, his best year ever was 98.7. I reject out of hand any assertion that Luck would have done better.

    And the Colts still lost.

    And we basically covered the spread. And won most every stats category.

    Oh yeah, the Colts were a playoff team last season, and the vast majority of experts didn't expect a significant drop off with the change at QB and expect them to repeat as at least a WC team.

    But continue.
    anyone not expecting a huge drop off is clueless....... Luck was a future HOF QB..... brissett is a good backup like T. Taylor......

    The point is the Chargers mistakes kept the game close but Chargers tend to make those kinds of mistakes...... Vinetari missing 3 kicks is unheard of........

    Chargers couldn't stop the run and didn't even slow them down......

    And Chargers need to give that backup CB (facyson) some help..... cause teams will go after him every time they need a play.....like indy did.....

    People are severely overestimating this Chargers team.

    The Colts dominated the football game and should have won by 2 TDs.

    We scored 2 TDs off BS penalties (the first one off the personal foul on the field goal and the next one when they called a penalty on what should have been a sack fumble)

    Then the Colts had a TD taken off the board and missed 2 field goals.

    It basically adds up to getting dominated by a backup QB.

    Negatives:

    Chargers have SEVERE problems in pass protection. Chargers haven't had a quality Oline since '08 and this is the worst tackle tandem I've seen. Historically when Rivers pass protection has been this bad they went 7-9 in '12 under Norv and 4-12 and 5-11 under Mike McCoy.

    Chargers have SEVERE problems at LB. Kyzir White has no idea what he's doing at MLB. It's not gonna get better until Perryman is back. At this point I'd strongly consider bringing back Hayes Pullard for a few games.

    Chargers run a VERY common defensive scheme and offenses have figured it out. Too many teams run Seattle defense now and it's too easy to exploit. The best thing the chargers have going for them is the ability to generate quick pressure from Bosa and Ingram but that's negated by the quick easy throws the defense allows. Combine that with inability to stop the run and it's going to be a headache all year.

    Positives:

    Offensive scheme: Chargers appear to have committed to a lot of dual tight end & running back sets and that will help negate the Oline play on early down. The offense is really the marriage of 4 different systems - Norv, Peyton Manning, Whisenhunt, and the Buffalo running offense Lynn brought from Buffalo. They've incorporated many of the strengths of that buffalo rush offense....misdirection, forcing teams to defend the run vertically and horizontally.....screen game. It's a great offense but getting solid rushing yardage on early downs and chunk passing plays off PA on early downs is gonna be key.

    Pass rush: Bosa looks like a beast this year. I saw him take Quentin Nelson and throw him to the ground. If Tillery can develop they really have something but they need to figure out how to get stops on early downs.

    People are ragging on Thomas Davis but I challenge anyone to go back and watch every snap of Indy running the ball and compare TD to K. White. Davis is quick and aggressive and knows what he's seeing. He's gonna be fine.

    Adrian Phillips: Again I see a lot of people ragging on him but don't see that on film. He had some missed tackles but he's solid enough.

    The hope is they can hold the fort together and Perryman comes back healthy, Derwin James comes back healthy, they avoid any other key injuries, and they figure SOMETHING out at tackle. I'm still hoping for a Trent Williams trade but don't really see any other options beyond that.
    I agree with most of what you said..... Chargers were very very lucky to win a game that we clearly should have lost.... the 3 missed kicks..... and winning the toss in OT...... very lucky..

    If INDY had won toss there is no question they would have easily scored a TD just like they did to tie the game..... using a backup QB ....

    This defense better figure out how to stop the run or this will be a very long season.... of losing.....
