Gotta disagree, Chance. If you've given up 70 yards to a freaking tight end by halftime, SOMETHING's not right. Now, the flipside to that argument was that Gates was the ONLY Charger with positive pass yards in the first half (Tomlinson caught 1 ball for -3 yards, giving the whole team 67 net yards receiving at the half), so maybe they figured they'd keep risking it...
I dunno. If it was a one-time thing, it wouldn't bug me. But this happened a lot last season--the hot start, and the slow fade until the final gun. Wish it didn't seem like such a trademark for this team.
