Effectively, the NFL season is over for Charger fans. In a must win game to stay alive for another trip to the playoffs, the Bolts tripped over their dicks in Cincinnati. San Diego was unable to overcome another slow start to make it into the post-season.
From the first offensive play of a fumbled handoff by VJax, the game was clearly in control of the Bengals. Carson Palmer picked apart our defense and looked more like Tom Brady. The Bolts never recovered and another underachieving season is in the books.
This off season comes with a lot of unanswered questions. AJ Smith has not had a good draft in recent years, Norv continues to lead the team to slow starts and several big name players are in the last year of their contracts. A possible lockout, stadium issues and even a possible move to L.A. looms over the San Diego Chargers.
Another Chargers’ season ends with disappointment.
