San Diego Chargers lose to Baltimore Ravens 31-26

Well, I said I would be happy if the Chargers were competitive with the Ravens, one of the better teams in the NFL.  They spread out the offense, threw like crazy, got some pressure on defense, made big plays and kept it close.  Maybe if a pass play was called on 4th &2 instead of a run that Ray Lewis blew up in the backfield, the Chargers win.  It doesn't matter. 

The panic button has been put away, the Chargers are still contenders.  This is a playoff team that have several months to get healthier on the offense line and mature on the defensive line.

There were good and bad things from today's game.  Shawne Merriman had his best game in two years and the referees officiated the game like they had money on the Ravens.  They'll all be covered in Bolts & Dolts tomorrow.  Right now, your comments and insights from the game can go in the comments.

And remember Chargers fans, it's week 2 and the Bolts hung tough with a healthier team that they may meet again in the playoffs.  If they do, I'll go into that game with confidence.
