Week 13 Recap: San Diego Chargers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

December 5, 2016

Yesterday afternoon the San Diego Chargers were fighting for their season. A win would have kept their playoff hopes alive, a loss assured their season was all but over. The game started rather well for the Chargers as they drove the length of the field to score a touchdown on their first possession. Tampa Bay seemed to be on its heels on defense early in the game. On the Bucs’…

December 1, 2016

Last Sunday, the San Diego Chargers played a low scoring game against the Houston Texans. In last weeks’ KYO, we said that the key to winning the game was putting the ball in the hands of Brock Osweiler, and the Bolts did just that, as they got out of Texas with a win. This Sunday, the Chargers return to the Q to play the surprising Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs…

Position by Position Grades for the San Diego Chargers at the Bye Week

November 18, 2016

  The San Diego Chargers bye week is here, which obviously means there will be no football this Sunday for the fans of the team. In the spirit of the bye week, we figured it would be a good idea to grade how each position has performed up to this point for the team. THE OFFENSE Many key injuries have stunted the flexibility of the offense. Steven Johnson, Jeff Cumberland,…

KYO (Know Your Opponent) Week 8: Denver Broncos vs San Diego Chargers

October 27, 2016

Last week here on my weekly KYO piece, I wrote how in order for the San Diego Chargers to win in Atlanta, they needed to stop Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman. They stopped Freeman on fourth and one in overtime and the Bolts left the “Dirty South” with a win. A great win for the Chargers as they look to gain some momentum on the season. This week San Diego…


KYO (Know Your Opponent) Week 7: Atlanta Falcons

October 20, 2016

Last week, due to some personal issues, I was unable to write my weekly piece for EVT, but this week I’m back to normal and ready to roll. The San Diego Chargers finally finished a game last Thursday, and were able to beat the World Champion Broncos. In the process the Bolts managed to stay alive in the AFC West division race.

Chargers Gift Wrap Another Game, Losing 34-31 in Oakland

October 10, 2016

Well it happened again, as the San Diego Chargers once again gave away a game in which they were leading in the fourth quarter. Could it get any more tragic? Who wrote this script that we are watching being played out before us, and when does the happy ending take place? I wrote a piece last week pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of the Oakland Raiders. I wrote how…


KYO (Know Your Opponent) Week 5: Oakland Raiders vs San Diego Chargers

October 6, 2016

Just when you thought the San Diego Chargers season had hit rock bottom, they outdid themselves last week. They did the unthinkable on Sunday, as the Bolts were up 13 with just a bit under six minutes left in the game. Instead of putting the game away, the team fumbled twice to fall to 1-3 on the season. The schedule doesn’t get any easier, as this week the Chargers travel…


KYO Week 4: Saints vs. Chargers

September 29, 2016

Last weeks KYO highlighted how the San Diego Chargers needed to stop T.Y. Hilton in order to win the game. They failed and we all know what happened. The Bolts haven’t learned to get out of their own way in order to win a game. So just like in week 2 the Chargers return home with a bad taste in their mouth. This Sunday they’ll face the New Orleans Saints…
