Im back! I have been out of town a lot the past two months so I haven't had much time to blog or post. But i still have remained faithful to my beloved Chargers, and I honestly just have one question: how are we still in this?
I mean I can not believe we still have a chance at a playoff spot, i mean its not a great chance, mind you, but it is a chance nonetheless. We have lost too many close games to still be in this, I feel like we should have been out of contention a month ago. And yet here we are, two weeks left and two games behind, and if i have only learned one thing this season its this: anything is possible when it comes to the NFL. So who knows, maybe the bolts will make the playoffs after all, but im getting ahead of myself.
Now about todays game, I think this was my favorite game of the year, it was a really exciting game. Just when I started to think it was over, Philip Rivers decided to start playing again and suddenly we were down one score with 1:13 left. Then came the miraculous onside kick, that couldnt have worked better in our favor, i began to believe it was fate. After that rivers threw the bomb to Vincent Jackson and we were at our own 20 with less than a minute, down 5. My heart was out of control by now, two plays later rivers threw a perfect pass to jackson and i went absolutely ballistic. Are we actually gonna win this game? Well there were 36 seconds, we were up 1, and the Chiefs had no timeouts, things looked good.
But then the bad came, the chiefs got a big return and were at midfield with 30 seconds. Tyler Thigpen made a foolish run and was at the 50 with 15 seconds, then there was pass to Tony Gonzalez and it appeared the game clock would run out. But the bolts got stupid, Antoine Cason foolishly blocked the ball from the ref and basically the chiefs were given the chance to win the game on a 50 yard field goal with 2 seconds. I began to have flashes of the Colts game all over again, and couldnt believe or season might end like this.
