Some Chargers/Steelers quotes from
Peter King's Monday Morning Quarterback column

THE FINE FIFTEEN:
6. San Diego (3-1). "I've won a few games coaching this way,'' Marty Schottenheimer told me the other day, responding to criticism that he plays conservatively to protect a lead. Well, he let Philip Rivers air it out more against the Steelers than the QB did against the Ravens.

...
Quick hit thoughts of the week:
a. Terry Bradshaw on FOX on Marty Schottenheimer's strategy and how it affects his teams: "Time and again, he'll coach them into mediocrity.''
...

c. I know we say it every time the Chargers wear the powder blues, but those are the most beautiful uniforms in all of team sports.

d. Not a good night for Big Ben. Pittsburgh, 1-3, is in trouble, and Pittsburgh, the city, is in mourning.
...

i. Michael Turner really helps the Chargers win.

...

What I liked about week 5:
c. Jamal Williams picked a great night to be the best defensive player on the field for the Chargers. They needed him Sunday night.

d. Speaking of good players in the Sunday-night game, Rivers showed the world that San Diego can throw a lot (37 passes, in this case) and still play an effective game.
...

What I didn't like about week 5:
b. Ben Roethlisberger's wounded ducks.

What I liked most was in the 4th quarter, We were passing when Pitt thought run and we ran when Pitt thought pass... Nice job by the coaching staff :thumbup:
