    Maybe the clock was still running during TJ's injury when it should have stopped.
    That was during those final 2 minutes, wasn't it?
    I remember kinda wondering what happened to make us only have time to run another play or two after TJ was carted off the field.
    trust me it wasn't that.

    I think he was being conservative with TJ in there and willing to run the clock down hoping AP would break a big one and put us in field goal range. Given TJ's accuracy problem it was highly likely that consecutive passing plays would end up in a quick 3 and out and enough time for the Chargers to score (with 2 timeouts).

    Once Bollinger came in, he was more confident calling pass plays. So he grew some balls, made some aggressive play calls, and almost pulled off one of the most aggressive drives of his Head Coaching career.

    No, letting the clock run & not calling the time-out until after almost 30 seconds ticked off happened 2 plays before T-Jack was injured. The play started with 1:20 left on the clock, Peterson had a 6 yard run & they let the clock tick down to 0:46 before taking the timeout.

    Bollinger was in Childress' face almost the whole time, signaling him to take the time-out, the crowd was yelling at him to take the time-out, but Childress just let it tick away.

    That fuck up of 25-30 seconds, definitely cost us a shot to get closer to the endzone for Longwell or a TD, by a play or two. Bollinger had to spike the ball on 3rd down with 0:07 seconds left to stop the clock to give Longwell his shot. Had it been 32-37 seconds, we could have fired off at least one if not two more plays.

    Need to teach him how to run with the ball; you do not swing your carrying arm outwards.

    Q: Do you need to bring quarterbacks in for workouts or are you familiar enough with them?

    A: No, we are going to have some guys in to work out.
    I wonder if Drew Henson is going to come in again, then ESPN doesn't have to update this link

    Judging by his replies to the questions you quoted, I'd say no way.

    Re: Brad Childress Press Conference 11/5

    Is anyone else concerned that this is the 4th injury for TJ in 1.5 seasons?
    not to mention the third time this year.
    Seems to be a bit injury prone...


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.
