Week 1 rant

Posted on: September 14, 2010 7:00 pm
 
Okay, so WTF. I was all hyped up, expecting the Chargers to go into KC and at least put up a W. I didn't think it would be easy. But I never imagined that the inability of the Chargers to tackle was going to kick them in the butt like this. Every year I watch while they struggle to tackle in open field. I mean, Weddle got embarrassed in open space. Special teams...can you please field the ball?!?! I swear I had a heart attack watching my team implode at Arrowhead. The Chiefs are NOT that good!!! Way to make them look better than they are, Chargers. People were both criticizing and praising Rivers for his outbursts. What do you expect him to do? He was trying to get these guys' attention. I saw two delays of game for letting the time clock expire. This has been a problem in the past (in Indy, for example). So you think they'd have figured it out by now. I guess not.

Wide receivers were missing catchable balls. I might blame the rain. But that would be the easy way out. I expect that Matthews is going to make rookie mistakes. Unfortunately, his fumble gave the Chiefs really good field advantage. Take better care of the rock next time. I'm going to let that one slide.

No, I still don't miss VJ. I am not convinced that he isn't replacable. Yet. I'll let you know around week 8 whether or not he deserves the money he wants. Because technically, he wouldn't even have been playing last night anyway.

Play calling sucked. Sproles obviously couldn't move the ball, but Tolbert could. So why take him out. I just don't get it. Yeah, go ahead and throw the ball in the rain.

Ugh. First of all, Sunday better be redemption here in sunny San Diego. And secondly, everyone get off your butts and buy tickets. I don't want to go to the game, but I would like to watch it!

Week 1 rant

No, I'm not in any money leagues. We do have a football weekly pick 'em at work right now. I did a gutsy thing and picked the Jets to beat the Patriots.  =)   Part of it was my hatred of the Patriots. Part of it was my love for LT. But it's only week 2 so there could still be a few upsets.

I wish I could play FF but I don't have internet at home and no fancy phone either. I'm going low-tech. for now. LOL

Week 1 rant

Yeah, that was a bogus call. And I'm really sad that Stafford is injured. I really like him. He's like a big teddy bear. LOL. Or maybe it's just me. But he won my football pool for me last year by beating the Browns after that PI call. He got hurt that day, too. What does that say about football? Is it too hard on QBs' arms? Or is it just throwing technique? He's too young to have those kinds of problems. Who is your backup QB and what do you think is going to happen with the rest of the season for the Lions?
