7-6 SD at the end of the first quarter.

Need touchdowns against Rivers.
Virtually everything GOP critics have told us would follow from the policies put in place has not come to pass. You would think that this would occasion a few mea culpas, some rethinking, an admission of poor prognostication. But, alas, it continues.

And the touchdowns have arrived. Some GREAT throws by Ryan and a strip sack by Beasley.

Rivers will be mostly throwing, so let's see if Beasley and the rest can load up more sacks.

Damn. SD made the next drive almost look too easy.

27-17 Birds now.

San Diego can light up the scoreboard. Might need to outscore them.

I would not have gone for that 4th down, but that surprises nobody.

Not really. Chargers have had a lot of near misses. They're good imho. Any given Sunday.

Matt Bryant glances a 58 yard FG off the goal post or we're all fapping with one hand and high-fiving with the other.

Defense is still not there yet. Growing pains, but I still like the direction.

Quinn made the right call going for it, especially since the defense hadn't made any stops for pretty much the entire second half. In my mind, punting it to them all but ensured a loss, while going for it gave you a better than 50 percent chance of keeping the game going.

I would have liked to see them have to go 90 yards, or 60 for a FG I guess, but yeah, they had done just that a couple of times.

I think the thing that looked the most like last year was not being able to get one yard on two tries. Honestly, having seen a couple of the Chargers' losses this year, there was a certain amount of karma in that W for them.

Entertaining game except for the final score. I too like the direction.

The Falcons looked great in those uniforms. I wish we could have done them proud with a win.
