CPiSS (Chargers Post Season Syndrome)

BALTIMORE – The Chargers said this wouldn't happen anymore, that they had learned, that they were better.

But there they were, sulking and skulking away from M&T Bank Stadium, shocked and dismayed by another last-minute loss that again left them searching for answers and suddenly on the verge of distress.

“It seems like I've been in too many of these kinds of games,” LaDainian Tomlinson said. “They get old real fast. They won it. You have to give them credit. They were more aggressive. They won the game, and we lost it.”

There was plenty of blame to go around for the Chargers' first loss in three games this season. The defense wilted. The special teams melted. Left guard Kris Dielman sat alone at his locker for a quarter of an hour after the game and later took responsibility for the loss because of his costly penalties.

IS Aiky ever positive about the bolts?

Dielman played terrible. I was getting pissed off at him. What's he thinking??? He should sit in the corner for 3 hours over this. What happened to our team? LT is right, this is old. Too old. We're tired of this. The coaches, the staff, the players, they all have to be responsible for this and they need to fix it before the steelers come to town.
