Chargers Dominate Patriots 30-10

It’s been rare in the Bill Belichick era that Patriots fans can turn off a game at halftime knowing their team isn’t coming back. It’s now happened twice in 2008 as the Chargers jumped out to a two touchdown lead at halftime and never looked back, beating the Patriots 30-10.

The Pats were dominated in every aspect of the game as Philip Rivers moved the ball at will (18-27, 306 yards, 3 TDs) and his counterpart Matt Cassel didn’t do much to inspire confidence (22-38, 203 yards, 0 TD, 1 INT). Deltha O’Neal got beat like an old rug (he remind anyone of Chris “why Canty catch up?”) and both offensive and defense lines were eaten for lunch.

New England falls to 3-2 on the year but it feels like they are 1-4. Full verdict to come…

  1. Matt Cassel really looks like he has no confidence out there…but I guess that’s to be expected of a young quarterback.

    What really concerns me is the lack of a swagger or identity on this team. Our pass rush was bad, our linebackers were confused, and our secondary was bombed on numerous occasions. This defense just can’t stop anyone good. I don’t see how they’ll stop the Broncos, even at home…

  2. Agreed, but Cassel isn’t a young quarterback, the guy has been in the league four years, that makes him what, 26?

    Young in terms of experience, yes.

    The pass rush was abysmal, Rivers didn’t hit the ground ONCE (and that’s more than sacks, he wasn’t even HIT once)
