Best. Picture. Of. Randy. Ever.
So, as I understand it, while I was poisoning my lungs, they basically rehashed Goodell's spin and added Kraft's spin, without showing us a recap of the first half. Nice move, NBC. Turner brings it out, and here comes the atrocious SD offense.
Gates catches a short pass, and I wonder if NORV! forgot that Tomlinson is on his roster tonight. Oh, there he is, and he gets stuffed on this rush. I was telling everyone I knew that Norv was going to fuck this up big-time, and in this game, I have been proven right so far.
"The Charger players were yelling 'We've got them where we want them!'" - AK.
I guess you say anything to get yourself hyped up. Rivers goes deep and nearly gets picked by Asante Samuel. Antonio Gates makes a very nice catch on 3rd and 9 to get into NE territory, and can you imagine just how awful SD's offensive stats would be without Gates? It's be Notre Dame-esque.
Adalius Thomas just takes LDT down in the backfield, and is anyone on the Charger line blocking at all? It's a valid question to ask. 3rd and 6 now, and Rivers gets it to Vincent Jackson for a first down inside the 20. Rivers rushes it near the first down, but LDT gets stopped, and another 3rd down, this time with 3 yards to go. Another first down catch by Antonio Gates, and it's 1st and goal at the 4. 1st and 2nd down tries are no good, and let me guess: they'll be trying to hit Gates again on 3rd down. Let's see if it works.
Empty backfield, Rivers to LDT, and Junior Seau gets him to fall at the one yard line. Is this go-for-it territory? Al and John say yes, and we go to break with a time out.
Rivers tosses it to....Lorenzo Neal! Good Lo is here, and he scores! Kaeding's extra point is good, and it's 24-7, Pats.
On a side note: How do you name your kid Elisha? Archie set him up for failure with that one. - AA
You think Archie had shit to do with that? I bet you anything Olivia wanted a girl. Peyton can also be used as a girl's name, too.
Norv's acne scars flare out like a cobra when he gets mad. - Wags
Ew. Ellis Hobbs returns the kickoff to the 20. I hate this "go to break post touchdown, come back for the kickoff, take another break" bullshit. I really do.
By the way, Mercury would like you to know that Dwyane Wade was not fouled in the making of that commercial.
Ben Stiller, Kirsten Dunst, and Carlos Mencia in a comedy. Pass.
the best thing that could happen to the chargers is norv gets fired after this season and they give cowher a blank check. dont think he would come back for that defense and tomlinson/gates? maybe the oline realizes this. - Mike Georger
I was gonna wait three games before breaking out the Norv Conspiracy Theories, but go right ahead. Sammy Morris is out to the 45, and it won't matter if the SD offense works if the defense keeps letting Brady and Co. piss all over them. Morris crosses it into SD territory. Ooh, there's some hubbub after the last play -- BAD BLOOD!
Archie's full name is Elisha Archie Manning. Blame grandpa for that one. - Anon @ 10:20.
Wow, and then he inflicted it on his son. Ouch.
NE timeout, and we go to break on Dishwalla's "Counting Blue Cars," or the "tell me all your thoughts on God" song, if the title didn't ring any bells.
wow, you're still here. go home. it's over. - Lozo
I'm a masochist, Lozo.
You really want your halftime highlight don't you....they could have bin Laden on at half time and you would be screaming. Anon @ 10:24
No, if they were still on football coverage and bin Laden had been busted or was one, then I would be screaming. If Costas interviewed bin Laden, he'd probably softball him about as much as he did Lord Rog earlier.
Moss catches another ball, and they're inside the SD 30, and Brady goes back to Randy for nothing but money and end zone. 31-7, Pats. Turner takes the kickoff back to the 31, and we've got a block in the back, I bet. Holding, same effect. Penalty at the spot where it happened.
Counting Blue Cars, the darkhorse for 'ultimate acoustic guitar song played on the campus lawn to get broads' - Mike Georger.
It's funny 'cause it's true.
We still have a quarter to go, don't we? Hang with me on this. Even if it's not competitive, we can work some jokes out of this. 3rd and 7, Rivers in shotgun, and he gets picked by an NE safety, but there's a flag, and we've got to see what type of PI it is -- it's against Ellis Hobbs, 1st down in NE territory for SD.
"Ol' Easy Ed's having a hard time with the numbers." - JM. Eddie Guns is gonna go lookin' for your ass when he hears that after the game, fat boy. Better run to your bus quick. Rivers throws another good ball to Malcom Floyd for another first down. Madden is now slurping Junior Seau, and I can only remember the press conference for his Charger "retirement" and then going to the Pats a week later. That's pretty high on the douchebaggery scale (which we still need to try and finish, News Team. Maybe some time this decade.) Turner catches the next pass, and gets down to the Patriot 13.
3rd period over, 31-7, Pats.
