I wasn't going to post this week as I have been in a state of utter denial, but since my boss is forcing me to sit here and twiddle my thumbs for the next three hours I have decided to work my way out of my thin candy shell and say a few words.
Great game Sunday. Really. It was one of the most superior outings I've seen from the Chargers this year. For about 54 minutes, anyway. Seriously, kick that freaking field goal! It netted us 16 yards to punt that ball. What is 16 yards to Peyton Manning? Even if we had pinned them back, it would only have meant giving a little more field to the best offense in the NFL. I know, I know. Easy for me to say. The defense had solved Manning and Co. all day, but the special teams had given up a massive momentum shift in the 4th, and things were getting scary. You've got to put a stopper in that sort of nonsense.
Another thing. Secondary, yeah I'm talking to you Drayton Florence, Quentin Jammer and Terrence Kiel. It's probably not a good idea to suddenly start standing around and letting guys fly past you down the field when the game is on the line. Huge lapse in concentration there, guys.
I refuse to be the kind of person who sits around and says that at least everybody knows the Bolts are for real now. I've known that for weeks. Truthfully, if we were going to lose this game, it probably would have been in our best interests to tank it big time, cause now no one is going to be looking past us in January.
As for this week, I considered going as a show of support, but when I saw people trying to hawk tix for $200 a piece, I decided to skip what will essentially be an exhibition game at the Murph/Q. To be honest, I think we will probably lose this game (mostly cause I just got my uniform and playbook in the mail), but I really hope we win to set up my post season dream scenario. We face the Broncs, Jets, and Colts, beating each team soundly, and finish it off with a major ass kicking of the Falcons in the Big One. All of or regular season losses avenged! Hmm? Hmm?! Pretty sweet, huh?
Well, I'll try to put something in here next week, but it's a short one,so don't expect a novel. After that, it's cheers to playoff football in Cabo! Go Bolts!!!
