Forget the 28 points that the Chiefs scored, it looks like a lot, but the Chargers held the Chiefs to 294 total yards which was their lowest total all season. That's the important number, and the Chargers offense actually had a lot to do with that. The offense put together long, time-consuming drives that kept Mahomes off the field. The Charger defense is legit. After the Bears, the Bolts defense may be the best in the league.

I was at The Murph for the home game that also included Fouts' retirement ceremony. The fans loved Fouts, but multiple members of the Spanos family were booed...and that was in the 80s.

Both San Antonio & St. Louis are fine cities, I'm sure, and both could put passionate football fans in the seats. But a "Stan Kroenke" doesn't grow on trees. Those cities will need to either fund a new stadium or come across a mega-billionaire to help them out. The Chargers ownership has limited funds, they are not building their own stadium. They are basically getting a multi-billion dollar stadium built for them for nothing in Inglewood, all they gotta do is pay the rent.


I don't know, maybe the NFL forces the Spanos' to sell the team.
I wonder if when the owner dies (and the spouse dies), the league has the option of forcing the heirs to sell the team ? Old man Spanos died a couple of months ago and, IIRC, his wife predeceased him. Bud Adams passed away, but his daughter (Cindy, IIRC) is the controlling partner of the Titans.

A few years back the Chargers would be leading in the 4th and give it up. It was frustrating. Now they go into the 4th quarter down and they make it happen. There is definitely something different with this team and I think it starts with Anthony Lynn.

Anthony Lynn is a stud and I've become a huge fan of his this year. I want him to win it all...

It took some big family jewels to go for two instead of going for the tie. I realize extra points aren't as automatic as they were a few years ago, but still, that took guts to make that call and it paid off! Good for the Chargers! Phillip Rivers deserves a Super Bowl championship.

Great game last night.

Love the Chargers, but hate the Spanos'.

My wish is that the Spanos' sell the team, and the new owner moves it back to SD, and builds a new stadium with their own money.

Is that too much to ask?

Congrats to all those Charger fans.......I have always been a bit of a Chargers fan from spending many months over the years in San Diego and when our hometown Boston boy Doug Flutie was with the Chargers I watched as many games as I could cheering him on.

It is a sad state of affairs when NFL owners hold cities and fans hostage. The Chargers had so many close years while in San Diego.......it would be ironic to see them get to the big game at a time where their presence in LA and fan base there is so small.


Go Chargers

Well, now this thread should get some activity. You have to credit the Chargers for playing one hell of a game. Philip Rivers might be the most hated quarterback in the NFL, but the guy is more resilient than anyone I've seen in some time outside of Tom Brady. Andy Reid is going to be thinking about this game for a long time.
WHAT???? Who hates Phillip Rivers??? One of the nicest guys in the NFL! People from San Diego might hate the owners (Spanos family) but I don't know a single person that has ever hated Phillip Rivers!

And yes it was a Hell of a game! Go Bolts!
