Chargers Season Review: Thank you Charger Fans for a solid Season
By San Diego Chargers NFL Tickets Staff Writer: R. Murray
Review of Chargers 2012 Season:
We sold so many tickets and had so much fun! What were your favorite parts of the season? Chargers season ended with 7-9. Not bad, not bad. But there could be some improvements for sure.
What we will Never Forget:
- Chargers 34, Steelers 24: For the first time in their history, the Chargers won at Pittsburgh in the regular season, and it was like Norv Turner had Mike Tomlin’s playbook. The Bolts jumped ahead 27-3. It was funny that a few days earlier, the U-T San Diego reported that Turner and A.J. Smith would be fired after the season. The Bolts responded by winning as nine-point underdogs. Alas, the ungrateful Turner didn’t award a game ball to the report’s author, Kevin Acee. No surprise that Turner was fired. Check out this article about Norv Tuner being fired.
- Gates passes Bambi: Breaking away from a Jets safety, Antonio Gates caught the pass, turned upfield and flew into the end zone for the touchdown that moved him past Hall of Famer Lance Alworth as the Chargers’ all-time leader for touchdown receptions. Afterward, Chargers players cheered as Norv Turner awarded Gates a game ball and declared the tight end a Hall of Famer. Career touchdown No. 82 also was a reminder that the 32-year-old Gates is still a playmaker. And he will be next year, as well!
Great San Diego Chargers Players:
- Danario Alexander: He was signed by A.J. Smith off the street in October, and the 6-foot-5 wideout soon thereafter became a favorite target of Philip Rivers. Alexander had seven TD catches in 10 games and ranked as the NFL best mid-season pickup. Wearing a brace on a knee that had five surgeries, he wasn't speedy in initial practices at Chargers Park, but in his second game, he beat two Bucs DBs on a slant play that went for 80 yards.
- Ronnie Brown: He seldom touched the ball in 2011 with the Eagles and was 30 when the Bolts signed him last summer, a move that an ESPN scout panned. Thriving in Norv Turner’s offense, Brown set a career-mark for receptions (49 receptions) while leading the AFC in catch percentage. He led the Chargers in yards per carry (4.8) and averaged 7.6 per catch, best among the team’s backs. He had no fumbles the entire season. And he was the No. 2 second pick of the ’05 draft, Brown showed he’s still a good third-down back.
- Corey Liuget: Liuget’s improvement in 2012 was eye-catching. The end, blending power and speed, had sacks in the final five games. Teammates named him Defensive Player of the Year. “Corey should be in the Pro Bowl,” Antwan Barnes said. No! We're keeping him!
