So we got beat. Every team does at some point. Thinking people knew that our young team had not been tested, and when they were, their youth and inexperience showed itself a bit. So what?

When you have a very young team, play the #1 ranked defense in the league in their house, and lose by three in a squeaker? Hardly the scenario that makes me want to swing from a shower rod.

Perspective, people.

We have the best running back in the NFL running behind a solid and athletic offensive line. Our quarterback is big, strong, smart, and takes care of the ball. We have arguably the best tight-end and fullback in the league, and have a nice combination of youth and experience at the wide receiver position. Our defense was ranked 2nd in the NFL... second. That's not too shabby.

Did they have a rough day? Sure. Will they have more? You bet. But let's keep our eyes on the prize here; Take the games one by one (cliché, I know, but it's true), beat up on the AFC West, split the non-division games, and we are in the playoffs.

We all love this team. Let's give them some props for playing hard instead of raining on them for inevitable mistakes.

:tup: The players performed well. There is no way they should hhave been beat based on performance. Play calling is the major issue here. Go Bolts. Bring on the Sqeelers!

A league source who closely follows the Super Bowl XL champion Pittsburgh Steelers has offered up five suggestions for improving the performance of the Steelers' special teams:

1. Safety Mike Logan: If he can't run anymore, then he can't cover kicks.

2. Defensive end Rodney Bailey: Shouldn't be in the NFL at all, and thus shouldn't be on special teams.

3. Cornerback Ricardo Colclough: Doesn't give a sh-t, so he should be benched. Or shot.

4. Running back Duce Staley: Though he doesn't play special teams, he's taking up the spot of a guy who could. His salary is guaranteed, so he should just be cut.

5. Linebacker Rian Wallace: Who in the hell is Rian Wallace?

The advice from the source to Coach Chin? "Cut these guys and hire some goons just like you were when you played."

i definitely look at the positives. lifetime charger fan that i am i dont mind observing facts of wins and losses. i think this loss will prove to be a firestarter below many bolts personell asses.
24 hour rule... time to start looking forward! I can not wait for this weekend's rematch against the NFL Champion Pittsburgh Steelers. I'm sure it will be a grueling and physical game, similar to this weeks contest against the Ravens. But hopefully we'll come out on top of this one. I'm (unfortunatly) expecting to see a very similar game plan and even when we win we'll still all be back here *****ing about Rivers not getting enough passing attempts. Either way, deliver the W and it's ALL GOOD!
