Day after open thread: I’ve officially lost track of all the bad

Welp, time to vent.

I am SUPER glad I decided not to partake in some adult beverages during yesterday’s game or else I’d probably be feeling a whole lot worse this morning.

Instead, I have no headache stemming from dehydration, but I do have a gigantic migraine from a seriously-unending case of deja vu.

For the fourth-straight game, the Chargers blew a double-digit lead. They blew back-to-back 17-point leads against the Bucs and Saints, both of which were quarterbacked by former Super Bowl MVPs and future Hall-of-Famers. They then blew a 16-point lead to Gardner Minshew and the Jaguars but somehow were able able to come back and win by a rare 10 points.

Then, yesterday happened.

The Chargers were up 24-3 halfway through the third quarter, which some would say is an insurmountable lead if you were any sort of a normal NFL team. But the Chargers are not that.

Over the next ~23 minutes, the defense allowed Drew Lock to score 28 points. Again, this is the same quarterback who threw four interceptions and ZERO touchdowns over their previous two games. The Chargers let Denver score on FOUR second half drives, including the game-winner, completing their biggest blown lead of the season.

It seriously, SERIOUSLY, doesn’t seem like it could get worse. However, yesterday is just another example that it can ALWAYS get worse, and it’s tough knowing the Bolts may very well be the team to show you that.

Feel free to discuss, vent, or do whatever you need to do in the comments below.

We’ll get through this together. I promise.
