AP Pro32 comments about Chargers
NEW YORK (AP) - Comments on the San Diego Chargers by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
SAN DIEGO CHARGERS (13)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 14) - Surprisingly out-everythinged by Falcons.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 15) - Loss to Falcons was a setback. How they fare against Texans will show us even more.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 13) - Comment currently unavailable
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 19) - Step up in weight class (Atlanta) told us all we need to know ... still work to be done.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 10) - So much for Norv Turner's first 2-0 start in San Diego, as Bolts fizzle at home against Falcons.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 8) - The Chargers have the oldest starting lineup in the NFL at an average age of 28.72 years.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 10) - Someone tell the Bolts that blackouts do not extend to the end zone.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 15) - Slapped back into reality by the Falcons during a home invasion.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 11) - Philip Rivers and an improved defense make them a tough out.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 17) - Disappointing loss against a red hot Atlanta Falcon football team. Now they hit the road for Kansas City.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 12) - If scrambled, the egg that the Chargers laid in last Sunday's listless 27-3 loss to Atlanta would be enough to feed the 53-man roster.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 11) - Losing to the Falcons does not mean they still are not the class of the AFC West.
