Near the end of Denver’s 30-23 victory over San Diego on Sunday afternoon, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers displayed a comical pouting party and went home.

Down by just one score with time still on the clock (0:17 before the play and 0:08 after the play), Rivers walked off the field after being sacked by Denver’s Elvis Dumervil—eliminating any chance of stopping the game clock.

With all of his receivers down field, it would have been hard for Rivers to get the offense back to the line of scrimmage in time to stop the clock, but with a competitive nature, it’s a little surprising that he wasn’t even compelled to get it a try.

After being sacked four times, fumbling three times and throwing two interceptions, maybe Rivers wasn’t compelled to do anything but get off the field.  And that he did.

    This shows you just how beaten the Chargers were. They were completely out-classed the entire game. Not only were they beaten physically, but they were beaten mentally as well.

    Its nice to see us step on the throat of a desperate division rival and completely beat any sense of competitiveness out of them. In years past, we lose this game 55-6 because we didn’t have that killer instinct. We have the “eye of the tiger” this year, and its showing up on the field, and in the oppositions actions. We beat up on the Chargers the 1st game we played, and drove the stake through their hearts last night! If there’s a sight as beautiful as this, I have yet to see it!!!

    +1 pete, I actually hope the Chargers were not completely demoralized and can win out the rest of the season just so they get worse draft picks and hopefully keep Norv around for a little longer. But that is probably not going to happen.

  • Big_Pete

    haha That’s way too good a scenario to be true. It seems like everyone but AJ Smith knows that with Norv, the Chargers will always be a bridesmaid, never a bride. Unfortunately, unless they win out like you say, Norv is most certainly out the door.

    LOL!!! He looked scared out there much like Sham Newton the week prior! I felt Newton wanted to quit in the first quarter last week. Rivers came out on the first drive throwing balls away even when our pass rush wasn’t threatening. I guess this is the downside to watching too much film for opposing QB’s!

    This defense is good…finally I can say this and believe it!

    My brother is a die-hard Chargers fan, and I couldn’t believe I actually started to feel a tiny, tiny bit… bad for him? Yikes, I can’t believe I typed that out. My kid brother, for whom I am rarely able to muster any sympathy on any issue, and I actually felt some yesterday. We just crushed Rivers yesterday. It was AWESOME. The best moment of the game was when Miller had the unblocked sack and the replays showed Rivers screaming at his line, “shift right!” Like, hey, guys, that number 58 is over THERE, maybe try to block that guy! And of course, no shift, no block, easiest sack of Miller’s season. Rivers was just blind with rage, and for once, I didn’t blame the poor sport. My brother was actually starting to pull for the loss just on the hope that it finally, finally gets Norv fired. Meanwhile, I’m hoping they stay distant from us but otherwise competitive enough to save Turner’s job, because he is so very good for our team.

    Our D is off the hook. Our offense on the other hand still needs some work, but we’re getting there. Can anyone else tell that all these mental errors are starting to frustrate Manning?

  • Mike Birtwistle

    Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn are fighting over the starting job

    You start
    No you start
    No you

    This just in; McGahee is likely out for the regular season and possibly the playoffs with a torn MCL.

  • Big_Pete

    yep. I’m gonna start a campaign for DJ to be our starting RB.

  • Gary_in_SD

    Living here in SD, I’ve noticed that almost all of the big gaudy lightning bolts have been taken off of the back windows of vehicles. Didn’t see a single one on the way to work this morning! At the beginning of the season they were everywhere.

  • anthony33

    Well I hope all those that were calling for McGahee’s head last week are happy now. This is a HUGE blow to pass protection. Hopefully there is someone out there that can fill in.

  • Big_Pete

    Like I said last week, I didn’t want McGahee benched or cut, I wanted his carries to go down. I didn’t think they’d go to zero cause of a knee injury.

  • Bryan

    Rumored to be out 6-8 weeks. Big loss, no doubt about it. Next man up.

  • TheTroglodyte

    McGahee wasn’t the RB used on passing downs anyway so no blow there.
