Did Chargers lose because they benched Gates?

Recommended Posts

I kind of like the hrad stance against star players this year, but did this cost them the game?

They could have used Gates in that situation, but to me it was horrendous play selection that cost the Bolts the game at the end. Four downs in a row without the best RB in the game touching the ball is just inexcusable in that situation!!! :D

No my Cowboys are clearly the superior team, and Bledsoe will be the league MVP this year. Of course they screwed up, with Gates, and play calling.

i think, yes. but they had to do it. i like the fact they benched him or whatever. i like the fact that he was punished, but the game could have been a different story had he been playing. he is a game breaker.

The question is-- Would they've had a better chance of winning with Gates in there?

 

I think we all know the answer to that question.

 

The Chargers handled the Gates situation stupidly and got what they deserved.

 

 

 

I also agree with this: "Four downs in a row without the best RB in the game touching the ball is just inexcusable in that situation!!!"

Gates probably would have hauled it in at the last series, but then again, there were other opprotunities to put the game away (like THE personal foul - and the lack of defensive stand after that; the pooched punt) that you can't really place the blame on any one series like that. They should have put away the pitiful cowboys much earlier.

 

If it comes down to one sereies, it really was a lot of other things along the way.

 

I was there ... :D:D

Thanks, I didn't see the game.

 

As for the suspension I think they took a hard stand because teams often make threats(as do players) and don't follow through. Someone has to get players to pay attention, but I think in his case they should have given him a little more time.

 

I'm not blaming anyone, just trying to get opinions. Mine is stated above.

It's not just that. But without Gates, the Chargers didn't pass to LT2. He didn't have one reception all game! I found that flabbergasting. You're already down your stud receiving TE, so you exclude one of the best-catching RBs out of the game, as well. I don't get it. :D Especially in the red zone.

Hmmm Bledsoe MVP, that has the makings of a sigline bet but I won't make to stand by your words. Not me.

I don't care why it happened I am just glad the Cowboys won. Now if they would just make ROMO the starter they would be unbeatable.

They should have run LT twice straight behind Neal. Even if that didn't work, it would soften up the ends a little. :D
