Chargers cruise to 2-0 against overmatched Titans

Dante Rosario AP

There were many excellent finishes around the NFL Sunday.

And then there was the Chargers-Titans game.

San Diego had too much Dante Rosario, and too much ground game, and moved to 2-0 against a Titans team which never had a chance in a 38-10 decision.

Rosario, the journeyman tight end whose previous career highlight was a game-winner for the Panthers in San Diego in 2008, had three touchdowns.

He had combined for five in his career prior to today.

The Chargers also ran for 148 yards without starter Ryan Mathews, with Jackie Battle running for a pair of touchdowns in the second half.

The Titans were kind of a mess, as Jake Locker was erratic passing (15-of-30 for 174 yards), and they continue to get absolutely nothing out of Chris Johnson (eight carries for 17 yards).

    Where was Battle in the first half? Where was he last week against the Raiders?

    Has Vegas put out the odds yet on which week the Chargers collapse this year?

    Part of me feels bad for Chris Johnson because of his struggles, but then I remember he is a loud mouthed prima donna and I enjoy when he has games like today. Maybe he should stop talking about beating Usain Bolt in a race and try to gain more than 2 yards per carry.

    I am a diehard Titan’s fan… The Titans need to bench a not ready Jake Locker and need to bench Chris Johnson who isn’t performing yogis contract and choose starters by performance only…not by wait and see their potential method…overhaul all positions on the team and put players in the lineup who okay best…not by past reputation or how you hope they perform…period.

    Chris Johnson’s yardage is greatly improved. Now instead of being CJ64 he’s on pace to be CJ168.

    I don’t care if your quarterback IS as fast as Cam Newton (Jake Locker), when he still leads your team in rushing two games into the season, that’s bad.

    Chargers look as of they are gonna release Ronnie Brown. Brinkley, Battle, and Mathews a solid backfield.

    When the chargers got battle, i was thinkin, ok, this guy killed the chargers and would be a good backup for matthews. When he didnt pay against the raiders i was p.o.ed. thank god norv put him in and saw this was the guy they are supposed to use instead of brinkly and brown.

    As a Chargers fan having seen the rise and fall of LT, it might be time for Tennessee to start sniffing around for a new rb. It might be a little premature, but when a back is done, they’re done.
