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

    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:
