Okay...so I finally don't have anything really substantial to rant about. The Chargers special teams got it together. Especially against such a dynamic and powerful team. Oh wait...what??? You mean this was the Cardinals? LOL. I can't really complain about a W. But it would be nicer if it was against the Chiefs or Patriots or Colts. A real team. Or a division rival...you know what I mean. This was a great game for building confidence though. It was nice to see. OH WAIT. We DIDN'T SEE Matthews' first NFL TD. Stupid blackout policy. The NFL sucks. I don't get it. Why not black out the game EVERYWHERE else and NOT San Diego? What is on TV that is so FFFFFFFFF important at 1p.m. on a ******* SUNDAY?!?!?! Sorry, I lost my cool for a minute. But really??? There's nothing more important than football. NOTHING. First child being born? NO. Fell and broke your arm? It can wait 'til the game is over. Besides, unless you fell off the bar stool, there's no excuse. How the heck did you break it anyway? Weddings? Who cares! Over 50% of them end in divorce. And what idiot would get married on a Sunday during football season? Work? Nope, sorry boss. I go to the church of the NFL which mandates that I not work on Sundays. Or Monday nights. See, if we can work some NFL into our lives, why can't the NFL work with us instead of against us? I'm just sayin'.
Back to football...
Now the sucky part is the Steven Gregory is out 4 games due to violating the NFL's illegal substance policy. Lame. We've been here before. But it especially blows since he just had that great game with a pick. Shawne Merriman is still an unknown. Whether he plays or not or WHEN is a big question mark. Norv Turner's comments on the injury issue led me to believe that Merriman isn't coming back anytime soon. Jyles Tucker got placed on IR. Suddenly some kid I've never heard of (Brandon Lang, I believe?) is going to be in the rotation at LB. BOO. I'm not liking these injuries and all I can say is I hope it stops. It's only week 5.
On another note, I'm shocked (kind of pleasantly) that this season has turned out to be such a crap shoot so far. However, I'm getting killed in my football pool at work by the likes of the Jags beating the Colts and the Browns beating the Bengals. UGH. I like it. I would like it more if my stupid crystal ball would work better. LOL. It's only $5 a week, but I would like to win. I hate losing. I hate losing because ONE person picked the Broncos to beat the Titans. Anyway, I might have questions for next Sundays picks. Since I'm doing such a bad job myself, I figure asking for advice isn't cheating. Right?!? =)
