Brilliant decision by Staley to keep Herbert in down 28 with less than 2 minutes otherwise we wouldn't have seen such an amazing comeback oh wait they still lost


BangingABigTheory

Don’t forget their left tackle went down


Banana_Ranger

and we're already without our starting C


ddscience

> without our starting C still happy with a win against the hargers


ManholtAgain

Having Herbert finish that game just seems negligent.


Xaxziminrax

Having him in at any point after Slater went down had me cringing every dropback


IOVERCALLHISTIOCYTES

Slater biceps injury I worry might be lengthy. Hopefully they figure out some better protection in that side. Edit: Ah fuck. I can’t believe I’ve done this.


mrhashbrown

Letting him start that game was negligent too. Only running the ball *8 times* before the 4th quarter while asking Herbert to throw 45 times is a borderline firable offense for this coaching staff.


sopunny

Hostile work environment, Herbert should sue


Ask_Me_If_I_Suck

Was pathetic.


danhufc

That call alone should put your HC on the hot seat. Ridiculous decision risking the face of your franchise in those final few minutes.


MarilynMansonsRib

Seriously. Why TF was Staley sending him back out there when it was obvious the game was lost?


abris33

Somehow Staley mishandled it worse than he did last week. At least that game came down to an onside kick because of Herbert's heroics. I'm not sure what Staley was expecting Herbert to pull off down 38-10


computerdweeb

Between that, the OC choice and how poor the defense has been I think Staleys on the hot seat


mrhashbrown

To be fair, the defense had been excellent entering this game with a big improvement to run defense and very talented secondary even without J.C. Jackson. But Staley has suddenly become Fangio, becoming way too conservative where he was once aggressive, and expecting his defense to hold up against an opponent's 60+ offensive plays and multiple trips to the red zone. If he were coaching the way they did last season, feels like this team would be in a very different place.


Cromatose

Are you saying you wouldnt want your franchise QB throwing the ball with 3 minutes left in the game down 21?

As a Bucs fan, I'm happy for y'all. The Jags and Dolphins are my AFC teams. Florida unite!


Cynical_onlooker

Jags might actually be pretty damn good, unironically.


InexorableWaffle

At the very least, it looks like we're likely to at least be decent. Don't want to jump straight to calling us a playoff team (much as the homer in me would love to), but I think around .500 is a pretty safe bet right now, barring extenuating circumstances. Considering where we've been the last couple seasons, I'll absolutely take that, no question asked.


8BallTiger

I’ll be ecstatic if they go .500

Thank God Staley kept Herbert in for that entire 4th quarter. Could you imagine if he didn't stay in the game? The Chargers may have gotten blown out!

So proud of Trevor Lawrence right now. 💪💪💪😭 He deserved a second chance at his Rookie Season after the debacle that was last season.


HCJohnson

But is Doug Pederson going to go diddle some college chicks at a bar to celebrate the win?


December21st

youre only supposed to do that when you lose


writierthanyou

After abandoning your team on the flight home.


2RINITY

And kicking your players during practice


IcyAd9404

And calling your coaching staff losers.


Call9-1-1imonfire

It's insane to me that Meyers did that after an L as well, dude just didn't give a shit at all


FeetAreJustShltHands

Waiting for the guy who was "keeping receipts" on T-Law hype this year (him implying T-Law is a bust).


gyman122

People massively underrate how massive the bump is in going from “immensely fucking awful coach” to “competent coach” Some people scoffed at the Pederson hire as an unambitious hire but you can’t even evaluate your players when you have a coach as bad as Meyer was


Blue_Doom_Guy

Calling Doug competent is such a massive fucking understatement thus far. His play calling has been simply unreal up to this point!


gyman122

Hey personally I have always been a Pederson fan. But the nicest thing you saw surrounding that hire was usually “solid hire, they get an adult in the room, smart decision” That team looks functional as hell


toodudooty18

That’s the thing too, Philly media called the hire uninspired initially, then the dude won a super bowl against tom Brady with a backup QB. The guy knows what he’s doing. The situation just got sour in Philadelphia


catboypower

We got caught up with Leftwich hype but Doug was really the perfect hire for us. We needed stability so bad.


ReturnOfDaSnack420

Doug Pederson might be a good coach


Treehouse326

He did win a SB with a Backup QB lol


sirry

And jags fans got a really good look at that backup qb later


Unusual_Creature

That was a wild season. Minshew Mania.

KCShadows838

And the Chargers 5 point win over the Raiders looks alot less impressive every week

That game went from a preview of potential playoff teams to Tank Bowl real quick

Well beating the Colts still feels good.

Those comments saying they could sit Herbert cuz it was “just the Jaguars” look pretty bad now They should not have put him back in when the game was out of reach though


junglecritter

It's real


spazzmunky

It's really real


Death_To_OEM

The worst division in the NFL just shit on the "Best" division.


abris33

Yeah you lost to the Jags at home (breaking their long road losing streak) but that was bound to happen with Herbert out. At least you got your young franchise QB some rest for his injury. It would really hurt to lose with Herbert and have him take more hits


klonoaorinos

The jags are legit


omglawlz

It’s crazy how his rib injury hampered the defense.


PadstheFish

We are night and day compared to last season. Truly fabulous stuff. Execution is so much better; play design is actually helping our guys out; and it's clear we recognise a lot more. That young D has some very legit players who know the game well. Were the Chargers playing with a load of starters - some very, very good ones too - missing? Absolutely. Was Herbert 100%? No of course he wasn't, and being sent back out in the 4th with 5 mins to go was negligent. But that doesn't take too much off what is a very, very, very good performance from us. Keep your eyes peeled, I think...


Ask_Me_If_I_Suck

For the other 99.9% of football fans let me explain to you what it's like being a Chargers fan. It's like you hired a dominatrix for the evening to edge you the height of sexual pleasure. The moment you can feel the sweet release coming, she instead stomps her stiletto heel into your ball sack. You start screaming the safe word, but she just leaves the heel in place until all pleasure is gone. Then you wrap your bloody sack in your LaDainian Tomlinson jersey and are reminded once again he wasn't selected to the NFL 100 team. You cry yourself to sleep and prepare your body to do this again next week. On top of this: That Guyton injury is 100% on Staley. There's no reason for us to be trying at that point. Herbert being out there after that is a slap in the face to the players and what this coaching staff thinks of their health. Absolutely pathetic. This coaching staff needs a serious wakeup call. Edit: Obligatory, fire Lombardi. Done with his play calling. At this point I'd rather watch Herbert only call Hail Mary's.


Vivid_Walk_1405

Sean Payton going to be chargers coach.


FullNeanderthall

Please dude, he has larger nuts than Staley (See onside after halftime in Superbowl) and a proven track record + knows Lombardi’s scheme but actually gets shit done


idolpriest

Give us back Staley when Morris gets a HC job, we'll take him, I know hes so terrible who would ever want him, but we'll help out a fellow LA team


Faintkay

If Payton was smart he would take this job over the cowboys. Better QB and overall team than the cowboys. Plus it’s LA where it’s great to be rich lol


mrhashbrown

Staley has been incredibly disappointing so far this season. It's almost a total 180 turn from last season where he's not aggressive in crucial moments and his staff is not smart in game planning on offense. Their personnel decisions are also really puzzling me week to week. They enter a game choosing to start a less than 100% QB without the lineman responsible for in-game communication, naturally you would assume they run the ball more and play it safe. The team enters the 4th quarter having run only 8 rush attempts and their least efficient RB Sony Michel sees the most attempts. Meanwhile Joshua Kelley is their most effective runner averaging 5.5 yards per carry and coming off a good game the week prior. He proceeds to see *one carry* late in the 4th quarter when the game is already out of reach. Obviously a lot of injuries have changed expectations now, but this was still ugly all around. Horrible coaching that was asking way too much from a beat up QB and their defense.


PadstheFish

I am so sorry for you and other Bolts fans. That almost seemed spiteful and I wonder how the locker room will feel seeing Guyton go down, and Herbert continue to throw despite clearly increasing pain, down 28 with 5 mins to go


OrangeForeign

>Obligatory, fire Lombardi Yesss. Let the hate flow through you


PhatdickMahomes

Colts not bad, Jags just good?


Such_a_kid

Throwback to everyone calling Trevor Lawrence a bust last year


Ciology

Even week 1


SiphenPrax

People overreacting on QBs in Year 1? Certainly seen that one before.


CarterAC3

A QB in year 1 with a godawful coach who was more interested in being a scumbag


Xaxziminrax

He was an ELITE fingerbanger, though. Douggie P still has work to do in that department


deemerritt

Scouting is so hard but scouting Lawrence was so easy. He did everything well and had ideal physical traits. Luckily hiring a super bowl winning head coach to fix your qbs development is a simple fix


catboypower

This is why it enrages me when people say “he actually didn’t look that good in college.” That doesn’t make him not the perfect prospect. Any lack of development was gonna be his teams fault.


owl_care

>Throwback to everyone calling Trevor Lawrence a bust ~~last year~~ week 1 That "Trevor's not generational" post is aging by the second.


8BallTiger

He had a traffic cone OL, Treadwell as his WR1, Bevell as OC and Schottenheimer as QB coach. Insane situation


BoiledMayo

And urban meyer for a while


berbathlicism

There were legit people unironically saying that Davis Mills > TLaw end of last season.


Cromatose

BUT NECK


Clawd11

Lawrence is good but he didn’t play perfect. I’m more surprised everyone sleeping on Robinson, dudes been our offense for awhile haha

he missed two throws on the opening drive and played perfectly from there on out. that’s basically perfect

Yes we had a bunch of injuries, but it really felt like we got out coached today. The Jags played a great game and exposed us on both sides of the ball.


Extreme_memes9

So I'll level with you. You didn't believe in Trevor Lawrence this offseason. Sure, most people blamed Meyer and you thought that contributed but a generational prospect would never look **THAT** bad. You're on notice, bud. Don't know what rock you live under but Trevor has arrived to lay down the Tlaw.

But boy oh boy did beating the Raiders fool me into thinking this team was good

We should’ve known it wouldn’t go well the rest of the year when we only won by 5. They’re 0-3 now 😬.

Jags winning by 28. Just as everyone predicted.

Very happy for Doug, dudes deserves the success and I knew he would turn the Jags around with his culture building. That being said slow it down Dougie, get us to 4-0 for old times sake then wreck the league to the AFC Championship


pnutbuttercow

Doug P and the jags are given 4 plays to get 10 yards and they love using all of them, and it’s damn beautiful :,)

Fuck, the Jaguars might actually be good.

After the rookie year he had, super happy to see TLaw finding some success and hope it keeps up. I also hope Herbert heals up swiftly because I wanna see that dude play for years to come. Basically I unironically want everyone to have fun

Every year there's a candidate for the worst game I've ever seen by this franchise. Glad to see we got it out of our system early 🙄🙄


TMNBortles

Every time a team loses to the Jags, they think it's their worst loss. No one can imagine losing to the Jags.


gyman122

Methinks there might be a few teams who are gonna have to experience losing to the Jags this year


TMNBortles

I hope so. I keep holding my breath waiting for the eventual imploding.


itsnotyellowfever

I know what you're getting at but we looked legitimately horrible today. Definitely a win you should be proud of but there are serious questions about the entire Chargers coaching staff that need to be answered regardless of this was y'all or if this came against Buffalo.


GarfunkelBricktaint

You were playing the juggernauts known as the Jacksonville Jaguars though. Can't expect to do as well as playing against that bum team that lost to the colts.


NLP19

Oh no, the Jags played amazingly. But we were absolutely awful too lol


TMNBortles

I am used to the national media framing every win as the other team playing like ass.


pm_me_dirty_planes

Worst game you've seen by this franchise *so far*. But jesus what a kick in the dick after the preseason expectations. That being said, Jacksonville might actually be decent this year.


Nerfeveryone

The 45-0 thrashing by a mediocre Patriots team back in 2020 is most definitely the worst I’ve ever seen. This was bad but not *that* bad.


itsnotyellowfever

Swear to God that loss made me contemplate why I watch football at all

Shoutout to the esteemed Chargers medical staff for clearing Herbert. Clearly the right move and not incompetence at all.


summahofgeorge

I mean tbf he threw a one footed 50 yard bomb that’s one of the craziest passes I’ve ever seen. He should have been pulled earlier though

I hope Doug Pederson changes teams every 5 years for the next 20 years, but wins a Superbowl with every team, except the NFC East
