San Diego Chargers
Manti Te’o finally gets chosen in the NFL Draft, as the San Diego Chargers take him in Round Two. Wait. Unless this was … Tuiasosopo!
San Diego. One of the happiest, most desirable, most beautiful cities in America. The kind of city that’ll fill you with inner peace and love for your fellow man… and also a desire to beat the crap out of some Charger fans, apparently.
Philip Rivers has the cutest little hand. Sometimes, he uses that little hand to throw a football. Other times, he uses that little hand to give the football to another player. This afternoon, he used his little hand to fumble the ball like a little baby.
Awkward: The San Diego Chargers’ Owner, Who Is Firing Norv Turner At Season’s End, Gave Norv Turner The Game Ball
The San Diego Chargers manhandled the Pittsburgh Steelers yesterday en route to a 34-24 win. Dean Spanos, the Chargers owner, handed Norv Turner the game ball. Too bad Spanos is the man who will be firing Turner at season’s end.
In his defense, the game was effectively over. Trailing 30-23 to the Denver Broncos and on the bottom of a sack pile, Philip Rivers had only 10 seconds to line his team up and get the snap off before the game clock expired. And even if they had somehow snapped the ball, the Chargers still had to whip up an 89-yard miracle just to send the game to overtime.
I remember reading a story one time that talked about Norv Turner’s fiery practice demeanor, and particular his “salty language.” And it made me think: wait, Norv Turner? That guy’s getting all fired up?” Hard as it was to believe, though, we got a little peek at that side of Norv yesterday. But only a little one.
Still clinging to the hurricane as an excuse for your non-sports watching ways? Enough, already. Sit down in front of the tube and take in some wholesome American sports. Anyway, here’s what you missed.
The Chargers had themselves a full-on meltdown last night, squandering a 24-point halftime lead (at home, mind you) in an eventual 35-24 loss to the Broncos. And no meltdown this severe happens all at once – no, it’s a gradual process, with many stages. Those stages after the jump.
