Don't overlook Anquan Boldin's last-second block to spring Rice for those last few yards.

I saw one of the Chargers players who just decided not to run after Ray Rice because he figured one of the other guys would get him.


Somebody should be CUT or FIRED today from the Chargers after that game.

No. That sounds like something that would have happened to my Cleveland Browns! In fact I remember a game vs the Houston Oilers on December 20th 1992 where the Browns were up for almost the whole game. It was late in the 4th with just under 2 minutes left and Clay Matthews had just gotten a record high sack of back up QB Cody Carlson. With it being 2nd and very long, like 2nd and 26, on the very next play they threw a short screen to Lorenzo White who went 60+ yds down and was tackled inside the 5 yd line. On the very next play Carlson found Ernest Givens in the endzone and with the extra point took a 17-14 lead with seconds left in the game. Trust me, the Chargers have nothing on the Browns when it comes to finding ways to lose, LOL! I was waiting for the other shoe to drop yesterday, and glad that it didn't.

But I digress. If you want to destroy a talented football team, hire Norv Turner as your coach. I'm sure he is out after this year if they miss the playoffs.

If the Head Coach can keep his job and given a pass for the past 4 seasons, then the DC can get a pass for one play.

The fact that there were thousands of empty seats at the game yesterday should get someone fired.
