You care about football way too much; so do we. Bolts from the Blue Radio is the only podcast network dedicated to obsessively covering the San Diego Chargers.
So come join us and we'll all get crazy together.
Today marks the beginning of the 2018 Lightning Round Podcast Draft Shows and it begins with an exciting new upgrade they’ve done this year in their analysis. After they give details on how they’re gonna layout these shows, Garrett and Jamie breakdown the “projected” Top 9 draft eligible Wide Receivers and how they have them all graded. Once they run through the list, the guys add two more “sleeper” picks each and then rank their Top 5 and even extend it out to their Top 10 Wide Receivers in this draft class. The “projected” Top 9 players they cover are:
Calvin Ridley – Alabama
Courtland Sutton – SMU
James Washington – Oklahoma St.
Auden Tate – Florida State
Christian Kirk – Texas A&M
Anthony Miller – Memphis
Deon Cain – Clemson
Equanimeous St. Brown – Notre Dame
Marcell Ateman – Oklahoma St.
The season hasn’t officially come to an end yet and the Lightning Round Podcast is ready to move onto Free Agency already. The guys break down their Top 5 lists of Offensive and Defensive Free Agents that they think are the best fits for the Chargers. After giving 10 names each in order, they then choose a few off their lists that they think are not only attainable but would look for the Chargers to possibly sign in Free Agency.
To start it off, Garrett and Jamie share their offseason schedule covering Free Agency and the Draft, then as part of their second installment of the “Year End Review” the Lightning Round Podcast covers how the Chargers Defense played this past season. They cover all position groups and individual performances all the way down the depth chart. The guys also talk about the future of each position and if it’s a need going into the offseason. They finish it off answering questions about possible replacements for DC Gus Bradley, Free Agent QB fits for the Chargers, thoughts on adding Allen Robinson and their favorite sports movies.
Up top, you get to hear the exclusive trailer of the upcoming 30 for 30 film featuring one of the hosts from your favorite podcast – Garrett Sisti. The guys talk about this concise victory over the Redskins on Sunday and roll into Playoff scenarios for the Chargers. They then breakdown the swing game for the AFC West lead on Saturday against the Kansas City Chiefs and preview important in-game matchups. They end this show with questions about drafting a quarterback, Forrest Lamp’s injury, whether to extend Tyrell Williams and an up-to-date record prediction to end the year.
The Chargers defeat the Browns for their 3rd win in a row and are in a 3 way tied for 1st place in the AFC West. Garrett and Jamie talk about the incredible streak Keenan Allen has been on and how Hunter Henry is just a walking mismatch against the Browns Sunday. They then flip over to the other side of the ball and discuss the job the Defense did including a big play from Joey Bosa, the slot blitz that finally paid off for Desmond King and another defender who quietly had a great game you might not have noticed. The guys couldn’t take questions last week so they took a lot (too many?) questions to appease everyone and addressed what’s happening to Jatavis Brown, questions about the playoffs and if Jamie wants to walk back his comments about Philip Rivers.
The Chargers dismantled the Cowboys on Thanksgiving and Garrett and Jamie discuss all the dominant performances on Thursday including Philip Rivers and Keenan Allen. They also praise the defense and how Casey Hayward put on a clinic in cornerback play that game and of course the rookie Desmond King returning an interception for a 90 yard touchdown. After the Week 12 recap they preview this week’s game against the Browns including players to watch, matchups to look forward to and Offensive and Defensive gameplans against Cleveland.
