Every message board I seen are full of arogant Charger fans although you are nothing compared to some of the idiots I've seen.

I'm a Donko fan That lives among a sea of bolt fans. Pray for me

That was probably the worst officiating mistakes in the history of sports. I am not kidding. Two calls that were blatantly obvious and were not called correctly due to technicalities.

The Broncos should of given the ball back to the Chargers at the end of the game.

Ed Hoculi should be fired immediately.

Thank you. We'll take it.

The first controversial call wasn't. The big mouth announcers tried to make a big deal out of it, but Champ ripped that ball before the rcvr's elbow hit the turf and that's that. Show me proof otherwise. It was a good call on the field and instant replay could no way have overturned it.

Champ was on that ball like a Pride of Lions on a rib-bone.

The fumble-er-incomplete pass... well um... ooooooooooops!

SCOREBOARD!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry Kendra. Them's are the breaks. The Mile-High Mystique is BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why do we even have instant replay if its going to be ****ed up anyway? The NFL should probably think about reviewing their instant replay procedures.
Well I agree with you there. On some of the worst calls in any game, you're just sitting back there saying, "That was a bad call, they'll overturn it" or "That was the right call, it'll hold" just to see the opposite. And the most crucial plays that can easily be reviewed are not reviewable.

The fumble was obviously a bad call but due to the rule with the whistle blown, you can't overturn it. San Diego definitely came out smoking in the second half and changed momentum, and Cutler kind of choked two times in the red zone when the pressure was on. The Broncos have work to do.

But its alright that the Chargers lost. They started out bad last season but still got it together. And either ways, they are still a better team than the Bruncos. Today's game proved it. We'll be in the mix of things. And the Bruncos dont want to see us again.
The Broncos are a young team and will be more than ready and willing to get it on in San Diego. Their run defense is improved, but we've got to do something with #41. He's a little toasty after yesterday. Even Champ has got to look at film and what he's gotta do to make adjustments. Special teams needs work. We'll figure it out.

San Diego is a good team. It's good to see some competition in the otherwise weak AFC West.

I saw the replay from 3 different angles and all of them were pretty obvious that is elbow was down before the ball came out.

It easily would of been overturned. It was a bad call.

If you think otherwise you are allowing bias to takeover your vision.

I think this is the first win a team of mine has had with help from the refs, I am always on the other end of that. Chalk one up for ME.
Right!!!
Charger fans, you still could have won, why cant you defend with 3 on 1 in the endzone for the conversion

also if you don't go down by 3 touchdowns, you wont have to worry so much about ref mistakes. So, you see it was really all YOUR fault.

Waa!!!!!!!! What's with all the whinning? Scoreboard!

The call with Champ was the right one. He ripped that ball cleanly before Chandler or whoever that receiver was had his elbow hit the turf. It's up to you to prove Champ didn't have it at that point and there's no way you or any stupid announcers with their big fat moufs could see otherwise.

Prove it.

7-0 with 2 1/2 minutes to play and the Donks score 8 points on the EXACT same play. Where was the defensive coordinator?


I remember bad calls going the other way in the 42-3 game last year. Where was the uproar on those calls? Does Denver get blamed for the Bolts loss last week too?
