Seahawks face the LA Chargers at home

Chargers 25 – Seahawks 17

No one expected this to be an easy game for Seattle. The Los Angeles Chargers have been playing fantastic football this season, and quarterback Philip Rivers is, well… Philip Rivers.

While the Seahawks have also been playing well, most knew this game was very important for both teams, and they would come out swinging.

The first drive of the game showed how improved the Seattle offense has been in the last few games. Taking over 8 minutes off the clock, and going 75 yards down the field, the Seahawks drive was capped by a beautiful touchdown catch by wide receiver Jaron Brown.

Tennessee Titans travel to London, miss a win by one failed two point conversion try

Los Angeles Chargers 20 – Tennessee Titans 19

The Titans “missed it by that much” as Maxwell Smart used to say in the Get Smart tv series. The Los Angeles Chargers held on to the win, 20 -19 in the last few seconds of the game after the Titans tried for two after a touchdown made by tight end Luke Stocker.

Quarterback Marcus Mariota attempted to throw to wide receiver Taywan Taylor, but the throw was tipped by one of the Chargers defenders and it was just not a catchable ball.

The Titans really did put forth a good effort in this game.  It was an exciting and the win could have gone to either team as the battle went on until the very end.

Cleveland Browns: shoulda, coulda, woulda

Browns 14 – Chargers 38

Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit was one of my favorite movies. What does that have to do with football? Well, stay here with me just a moment…

There is a scene when Rita (Lauryn Hill) is talking to her mother (Sheryl Lee Ralph) and mom says “But there are a lot of talented people right down there on the streets singin’ their ‘shoulda-coulda-woulda’s.'”

Of all the lines in that movie, it’s one that really stuck with me. And after the blistering loss the Cleveland Browns took this week from the Los Angeles Chargers, it seems like the perfect theme to recap the game.

By Cindy Davis // XO_CindyDavis

New Orleans 36 – LA Chargers 7

The Chargers fell to the Saints in a disappointing 36-7 loss on Saturday, in the third week of the preseason. After scrimmaging and practicing together in the final week of training camp, the Saints dominated the Chargers for three quarters.

While this game was less than exciting for Chargers fans to watch, there were still some positive takeaways from this game.

In Telesco we trust

By Cindy Davis //@XO_CindyDavis

 

 

Say hello to the newest Los Angeles Charger!

Excitement is high today as the Chargers got what some are calling the biggest steal of round one, selecting FSU Safety Derwin James at the number 17 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.  Many are surprised that he was still on the board when the Chargers were on the clock, so it was an obvious choice for the Bolts to make the call.

After not resigning free safety Tre Boston, the Chargers had an obvious need at this position. James told the Chargers in his interview with head coach Anthony Lynn, that he is willing to play any position they need, further adding to his value.

Philip Rivers – That’s our quarterback

Official LA Chargers Reporter

By Cindy Davis // @XO_CindyDavis

Quarterback Philip Rivers became the official starter for the Chargers in 2006. Since that time, he has started every game and has thrown for more than 4,000 yards in 9 of his 12 seasons as the Chargers quarterback.  He has led his team to the playoffs 5 times and has been selected as a pro-bowler six times over his career.

Perhaps his most impressive feat though is the fact that he led the Chargers to win the AFC West division title four years in a row from 2006-2009. Sadly, all of their playoff appearances have ended in heartbreak and Rivers has never reached the SuperBowl.  Because of this, Rivers accomplishments thus far seem to be downplayed and his numbers overlooked.

With his contract set to expire in 2019 and Rivers turning 37 this year, it has been speculated that he will continue to play for several more years. As of right now, Rivers future at quarterback is unknown, but he deserves to end his career with the ultimate football accomplishment: a Lombardi.

Chargers need to Bolt into action this offseason

By Cindy Davis//@XO_CindyDavis

 

This upcoming season for the Chargers may be one of the most important seasons yet. According to ESPN, since their move from San Diego to Los Angeles, their attendance for their home games has declined by over 50% from the 2016 to 2017 season. Since they are sharing a city, and eventually a stadium with the Los Angeles Rams, the competition is on more than ever to draw fans in.

There are still many disgruntled fans in San Diego who dis-owned the Chargers (Dean Spanos) after they seemingly abandoned their home city. So where do they need to start to build their fan base back up? The answer is simple: they need to win, and they need to win now.
