They're After Me Lucky Charms!

So the Chargers signed JT O'Sullivan to back up Billy Volek, which is a lot like keeping a Hyundai Accent in your garage in case the wheels fall of you ten speed. Let me be clear, San Diego. Billy Volek is terrible. From Kevin Acee's article today:

Volek is expected to return to practice Wednesday or Thursday. Turner recently defended Volek by citing his late-game effectiveness in the 2007 playoffs at Indianapolis and in last year’s season finale.

Yeah, that's the reason every idiot fan I know cites as well. You know why? Because there is literally nothing else you can cite when defending him. Outside of that short spurt of competence, I'd be willing to bet that more than half of Billy Boy's regular season drives ended in turnovers. And let's not talk about his preseason performance again. It makes me toosad. So listen up, Norvelle, you just go ahead and plug Sully into that second spot. He played for Mike Martz, so at least you know he's used to getting sacked 5 or 6 times a game.

I love both of these statements defending Volek by Norvy. 2007 was like yesterday at this point and ol'Billy's performance in last year's season finale?

19-30 216 yards 63.3 completion percentage Long Pass: 50 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 pick, 82.1 rating. Rushing: 1 attempt, -1 yards.

That my friends is getting the job fucking done.

And we came dangerously close to losing that game. To the Redskins. Who were terrible.
