    Chargers got hosed

    The whistle on Cutler's fumble was horrible. Why don't you swallow your whistle and let the play continue then sort it out when it's over. Otherwise, why even have those plays reviewable? Either that or the NFL needs to adopt the college rule where a player is awarded the fumble recovery if the play is overturned if they would have recovered it.

    Marty might not have been able to win in the playoffs. But starting 0-2? Bring him back.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    With their injuries I'm not sure Marty would have been able to do much better.

    Re: Chargers got hosed

    That was disgusting. I'm beginning to think there isn't a fair sport to watch anymore. Hard to be a fan when your team can lose to the refs.

    14 points to the Broncos today were gifts from the refs. Horrible.

    Lambeau, Landry, and even Ditka himself couldn't have overcome the refs on the field in Mile High today. Steroid boy (Hoculy or however you spell his name) should be banned from officiating.

    Didn't see the game. Sounds pretty horrible though. However, my fantasy team BADLY needed that Eddie Royal touchdown. So hooray!

    You are pretty desperate to celebrate that. A replay booth that mysteriously doesn't work when it give the home team a turnover in scoring position and then that absolute pile of a call at the end. If I were a Bronco fan I would stay out of discussions. 14 points GIVEN to the Broncos. Sad.

    ESPN just covered the game and didn't even mention either blown call.

    Re: Chargers got hosed

    i dont see how you could celebrate after winning like that. You didn't even win the game...Ed won the game for you. what a bunch of BS. I can't stand the Bronco's and i hate them even more now.

    Five minutes on Shanahan's guts and Cutler's maturation. Not one mention about either play. ESPN sucks.

    You can't be sure that a working replay system would have overturned the earlier turnover. The talking head announcers are wrong more often than not on their interpretations of replays. From my view, I could not confirm that the receiver had control as he went down. The ball and hand in question appeared to be hidden so by rule the call on the field of a turnover probably would have stood.
