Time To Blame Ben
To his credit, he usually takes the blame. But he also kinda deserves it. Hopefully this is the tuneup he needed to get ready for the stretch run.
He basically did squat until garbage time. And his 2 turnovers leading to 14 points were more than San Diego's margin of victory.
I do think we brought him back too early because I've never seen the guy playing like he was afraid of contact in the first part of the game. But it's good to have him ready for Cincy.
We can still drop 1 more game as long as we beat Cincy. Heck we might be able to drop more if Cincy drops more too. Although I'd prefer a little momentum going into the playoffs.
On a positive note, there won't be any bad teams in the playoffs, so we might be ok if we can just manage to get there.
Howb is it Bens fault when he was running for his life most of the first half and they ran on obvious running downs and passed on obvious passing downs.
I respectively disagree with this flipp.

That's Ben's problem. Sometimes a QB has to be more decisive and just get rid of the ball fast. Haley can help him out, but the buck stops with Ben. And he knows it.
Ben did make the turnovers. And he kept going to Wally to his own detriment. I think he did relatively well given that he looked like he had a gladiator uniform under his jersey and that musta been a little weird.
The point I was really trying to make is, it's a team game. Blame everyone. Everyone else but Ben's been called out so far :)
Suisham sucks. That is all.
Oh- and Sean Spence did NOTHING!
Also- some blame MUST go to Norv Turner for not simply laying down & giving up.
Amazing + 1.
It might be time to dig out the Billy Madison clip.
Sometimes you have to give the other team credit, the Chargers took advantage of a lame offensive game plan.
I blame Heinz Field's turf. It wasn't the bog we are used to this time of year.
Wasn't Ben's fault at all..This was a poor game plan...
This game plan should have been 90% passing to start the game!!!
