What a game

Posted on: January 4, 2009 1:55 am

I still am in utter shock after the Chargers win verse the indianapolis Colts, it was such a great game and even when it seemed like it was over for my beloved bolts, they kept fighting and found a way to win. I was actually at the game and let me tell you that was the most exciting game to be at the crowd was screaming the entire time and i really think we showed what charger pride is all about. Here are some quick thoughts about todays game:

1. Both defenses played better than expected, the bolts d kept Peyton Manning in check most of the time, while the colts d did the same to Philip Rivers. I think most were expecting this to be a high scoring game and it was much more of a defensive battle than an offensive battle. But it was still very exciting none the less.

2. Darren Sproles is a beast, i mean he can do it all, even when he fumbled the ball at the 2, he came back out like nothing happened and then kept on playing great. He definitely was tonights mvp when he so easily could have been the scapegoat.

3. This game was great for Mike Scifres because he punted beautifully on national television and showed just how good a punter can really be. He made some absolute clutch kicks and no matter how far we were the ball always ended up inside the 10.

4. Play of the game: when Tim Dobbins sacked peyton manning on third down with a little over 2 minutes to go. That play absolutely swung the momentum in our favor and after that play the chargers just kept driving and never really looked back.

Well thats it, I still cant believe how great of a game that was, and im really looking forward to next week, whether we play the Steelers or the Titans, i say bring either!

go chargers!
