The old coaching staff is long gone. The general manager was fired. But the San Diego Chargers still know how to break the hearts of their fans like few other teams.

Leading by 21 points midway through the third quarter on "Monday Night Football," the Chargers watched the Houston Texans storm back to steal the game 31-28 on the road.

The collapse was reminiscent of San Diego's Monday night meltdown last year, when it blew a 24-0 halftime lead to the Denver Broncos. I also couldn't help but think of Philip Rivers' depressing fumbled snap on Halloween in 2011. Put the Chargers on ESPN, and disaster is soon to follow.

"There was never a feeling of desperation. We were in control. We stayed poised," Rivers said after the game. "We're sick, I'm sick, that we're not 1-0."

The Texans deserve a ton of credit for the comeback. Quarterback Matt Schaub was sharp all night, converting a number of third-and-long plays down the stretch. (There was no fourth-and-29 on Monday, but there was a third-and-18 to rookie receiver DeAndre Hopkins.) Linebacker Brian Cushing made a sensational diving interception that he returned for the tying touchdown. Coach Gary Kubiak knew just when to break out a fake punt during all the madness.


Still, the Chargers failed to close. A first down or two in the fourth quarter would have won the game. Rivers brought back visions of 2009 with four early touchdown passes, but the offense completely bogged down late. San Diego's last five drives combined for 10 yards with an interception. Four of those drives didn't gain more than a yard.

The scale of the collapse will overshadow all the good things the Chargers did for much of the game. That's just how sports work; it's difficult to think clearly after blowing a 21-point lead. San Diego can't even blame Norv Turner for this one.

In a matchup of first-year NFL coaches, Mike McCoy's less-hyped San Diego Chargers offense took advantage of a mediocre Philadelphia Eagles defense and kept Chip Kelly's dangerous offense on the sideline most of the game en route to a 33-30 victory.


Philip Rivers found Eddie Royal on three touchdown passes -- leading people at pubs across America to ask the bloke next to him, "Wait, what year is it?" -- as the Chargers' offense methodically picked apart the Eagles' defense.

Rivers, looking very comfortable running McCoy's offense, used a quick pace to keep the Eagles' defenders on the field and then made play calls from the line, draining the clock.

Rivers threw for 419 yards, quickly got the ball out of his hands and spread it all over the field. The Chargers had four players catch five or more passes, including receiver Malcom Floyd (five), who was carted off the field early in the second half with a neck injury.

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates looked like he found the fountain of youth. Aside from one red-zone fumble, the Eagles had no answer for the tight end, who caught eight passes from 124 yards.


The Chargers had a 10-point lead twice in the first half but couldn't slow Eagles quarterback Michael Vick (428 yards, two touchdown passes) and DeSean Jackson (193 yards, one touchdown). It seemed inevitable that the Eagles would drive for the winning score late. However, the Chargers' defense hit Vick hard, forcing him out of the game for a play before the two-minute warning. The Eagles settled for a game-tying field goal.

Rivers got the ball back with 1:51 remaining and marched the Bolts down the field for Nick Novak's game-winning 46-yard field goal.

The Eagles' offense was the talk of the week, and deservedly so. Kelly's quick-strike offense was on display again. There is a good chance the shaky Eagles defense could undermine its explosive offense all season.

On Sunday, the Chargers showed us the blueprint for marginalizing Kelly's offense.

San Diego Chargers

What's changed:

Not much of significance. The biggest change was losing offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt, who helped get Philip Rivers' career back on track.

Up against the salary cap, general manager Tom Telesco threw in the towel on 2013 free-agent bust Derek Cox and dumped fullback Le'Ron McClain. He also convinced veterans Jarret Johnson and Eddie Royal to accept pay cuts. He used the savings to lock up inside linebacker Donald Butler, one of the few talented young defensive building blocks.

What's next:


» Get faster: Cornerback was the biggest weak spot on the roster last season, and it has yet to be addressed in free agency. The Bolts can also use a field-stretcher at wide receiver to complement Keenan Allen. Danario Alexander is no longer in the picture, and Malcom Floyd's football career is in jeopardy.

» Pass rush: There's immediate pass-rushing help on the horizon with Dwight Freeney and Melvin Ingram returning to full health, but defensive coordinator John Pagano needs depth and young legs.

» Reward Ryan Mathews: Mathews has earned a contract extension by running as hard as any back in the league last season. It wasn't a great sign when Telesco gave Donald Brown a higher annual averaged than most running backs have landed on the open market.

San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers earned the 2013 Comeback Player of the Year award by operating as Peyton Manning lite. He diagnosed the defense's intention before the snap, torched blitzes and tossed accurate passes to a bevy of receivers.


Now we have reason to believe Rivers will be running Manning's old Colts offense in 2014.

On Friday's edition of the "Around The League Podcast," NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks revealed that Rivers is running the same heavy no-huddle scheme that the Colts used when new Chargers offensive coordinator Frank Reich was Manning's position coach in Indianapolis.

Reich is even incorporating "K-Gun" concepts from his playing days as Jim Kelly's backup in Buffalo -- when both were teammates of Brooks.

"I think they're going to give Phillip Rivers more leeway than he's ever had," Brooks explained. "I think you're going to see them play at a pace that we haven't seen them play at, and I think they're ramping up and they'll be far more exciting than we're used to seeing the Chargers in terms of passing."

That faster pace should lead to more plays and scoring opportunities while limiting defensive substitutions, in similar fashion to offenses run by the Broncos, Patriots and Eagles.


One of the primary beneficiaries will be Making the Leap candidate Ladarius Green, who was limited to a deep threat role as the No. 2 tight end last season.

Brooks believes Green is ready to outproduce Antonio Gates as long as Reich uses more two-tight end sets this season. The Bolts need Green's speed and playmaking ability down the seam to complement Keenan Allen on the outside.

We have been overlooking the Chargers as the 2014 Team of ATL. With Rivers at the helm of a more exciting fast-break offense, they are now on our radar.

Free agent Pro Bowl cornerback was released by the Chiefs last week and as of today, he has joined an AFC West rival. Just not the one Raiders fans hoped he would join. He heads to San Diego according to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post. He signs a one-year deal with the Chargers.

According to Wilson, the Raiders were never in the mix to sign Flowers. The suitors included the Minnesota Vikings, Baltimore Ravens, Atlanta Falcons and Detroit Lions along with the Chargers.

Flowers was a Pro Bowler just last season though it was a down season for him. The Chiefs moved him to slot corner and he didn't play well. He wasn't happy playing out of the slot and the team wasn't happy paying him starter money to do so.
