Anthony Lynn says Chargers ‘got our asses kicked’ vs. Vikings
Anthony Lynn has to face the music. The Los Angeles Chargers are having a disappointing season after making the playoffs the previous year. Their latest defeat to the Minnesota Vikings is a painful reminder to the Chargers fans who even bother to show up in LA about how steep of a fall they’ve had since last year.
Eric Williams of ESPN was present when Lynn took to the floor in the aftermath of their 39-10 beatdown to the Vikings. This time, he didn’t give any excuses and flat out said that the loss was handed to them by a motivated Minnesota squad.

The seven turnovers the Chargers offense committed throughout the game was simply inexcusable. No team in the NFL could possibly string together a run of good offense if their flow is interrupted by turnovers time and time again.
The biggest offending party among the Chargers players is undoubtedly Philip Rivers. He definitely tried bringing his trash talk to the field, but his play didn’t match the words coming out of his mouth. He committed four of the seven turnovers, and three of them were costly interceptions. He tried making up for them by throwing a respectable 307 yards, but it did nothing to reverse the score.
With season pretty much over for them, the Chargers organization will have to seriously reconsider their options. The Dignity Health Sports Park saw a lot more fans wearing Viking colors than Chargers gear, and the way they’re losing games lately is nothing short of acceptable.
A change is in order for the Bolts as they stumble toward the end of their disillusioning season with an aging quarterback. It will likely have Anthony Lynn and Rivers on the chopping block in the process, but the team cannot continue on playing the way it does.
