Found October 31, 2011 on NBC San Diego:
The Chargers are 4-2 and in first place, but have looked anything but dominant getting there. Monday Night the team faces the Chiefs in Kansas City. The last team to beat the Chiefs was the Bolts, a month ago at the Q. This time around things will look a little different. Here are four keys to a success Monday night: Don't Get Confused Arrowhead is always rowdy. The Chargers practiced with giant speakers blaring crowd noise this week to prepare. Audibles and snap counts are hard to hear when the crowd hits 100-decibels, so communication will be key. Especially with Tyronne Green starting at left guard for Kris Dielman, who's out with a concussion. Be Versatile Shaun Phillips, who leads the Chargers with three sacks, is out with a foot injury. That leaves Travis LaBoy, Antwan Barnes, and Darryl Gamble as the only outside linebackers. Also, running back Mike Tolbert likely won't go. So Curtis Brinkley backs up Ryan Mathews and Jacob Hester. t's another case...

Norv Turner should be replaced as the head coach of the San Diego Chargers

I thought this evening’s game was going to be a great game to watch, but instead it devolved into what looked like a pre-season Week Three game. 21 penalties, eight turnovers? And exactly what has happened to the San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers? There is no excuse for Chargers head coach Norv Turner to remain as the team’s head coach after this season, no head...

Norv Turner May be a Destructive Influence on Rivers, Chargers

Unlike the past few years, the San Diego Chargers started their season strong; leading the AFC West Division and racking up four wins early in the season. For a team that started last season at 0-1 before quickly sliding to 3-5 by this time last year, that’s a great record. The game against the New York Jets looked promising with the Bolts taking an early lead and ending the...

Chargers' Rivers: 'This is the worst day ever'

The television cameras zoomed in on Philip Rivers just after he had fumbled away the San Diego Chargers' chance to beat the Kansas City Chiefs in regulation. It didn't take a professional lip-reader for the message to come across. ''This,'' Rivers said on the sideline, ''is the worst day ever.'' Only for the Chargers. It was awfully good...

Chargers Need Rivers To Find Form Quickly

Philip Rivers might have had more difficult games from a statistical perspective, but Monday night’s loss had to be emotionally draining. Whatever the reason for his poor play, Rivers’ slide leaves the Chargers in a precarious situation in the deadlocked AFC West.

San Diego Chargers: They are, Who we Thought they Were!

Denny Green’s tirade after losing on prime time against that years top team – the Chicago Bears was probably the only time I ever hung on to watch a press conference that evening. That year, his Arizona Cardinals were a lowly team and after building a huge lead faltered in the end. Ever since then, his streak of anger in saying “They are, who we THOUGHT THEY WERE...

NFL Reactor: Chiefs Squeak Past Chargers In A 23-20 Win

The Chargers had the game won. It was 20-20 with just over a minute left. The Chargers were content milking the clock down to about three seconds and kicking the game winning field goal as time expired. On Halloween night, fate decided to give the Chargers a trick instead of a treat. Phillip Rivers' job was to center the ball for a field goal, but he couldn't handle a routine...

Halloween horror: Rivers botches snap to set up game-winning FG

It was an all-time NFL blunder, the kind that will show up on "SportsCenter" countdowns and career retrospectives for years. With his team preparing to run down the clock and set up a chip-shot, game-winning field goal, San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers mishandled a routine snap on a kneel-down play, fumbled the ball and handed possession to the Kansas City Chiefs...

Coach: Rivers tries to do too much at times

(Associated Press) Chargers coach Norv Turner says quarterback Philip Rivers is pressing and at times is trying to do more than he needs to do.The coach's assessment came a day after Rivers had one of the biggest blunders of his career, fumbling the snap with San Diego driving deep in Kansas City territory during the final minute of a 20-20 game. The Chiefs recovered and went...
