SNF Live-Blog: SD-NE, 3rd Quarter

Sunday, September 16, 2007

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.

Hahaha. Great picture choice. I pride myself on choosing the best ones possible and you have outdone yourself my friend.

Another thing I've said. When the real history is written, the Patriots Dynasty will be as likable as the 1986 Mets.

And to think that NONE OF THIS would have never happened if there wasn't a "Tuck Rule."

At least we didn't have to deal with the 'Parliament' sized halftime crew.

If they just kept it Costas/Collinsworth, actually showed more than 15 seconds of highlights, NBC could be onto something here.

I mentioned this on the last thread, but I think it got lost in the new thread change:

Joe Morgan's birthday is Wednesday.

I think we should send him a card.

Rivers is a Romo wannabe.

Maybe Eli is the best "pure" quarterback of that draft class after all.

I never knew that Anon, and I'm sorry that the Saints layed an egg to start the season. I'll be there tomorrow night when I live-blog the Skins getting blown out by Philly.

Thanks AA. Those Parcells assistants Sean Payton and Charlie Weis aren't exactly redefining the term "offense" this year. Damn.

I switched over to the baseball game at halftime, and was just rewarded with this gem.

Runners on second and third, one out, 1-1 in the top of the eighth. Joe Morgan speaking, of course.

"It's interesting that they're going to play the infield in and not try for the double play."

Interesting, indeed.

god i hate the patriots
my pats fan neighbor and i yesterday were discussing the cheating whathaveyou and his contribution was 'theyre so good they dont need to cheat.' theyre so arrogant they dont realize the stupidity of that comment, it just doesnt sink in through their freckled fucking skulls that maybe just maybe the fact that they had receivers playing shut down cornerback in the playoffs was related to cheating.

god i hope the steelers are for real, good will prevail over evil

I'm guessing you're new to the site friend. You can search "AA Hearts" for some people that have had positive reviews.

I really do not like Derek Jeter.

Corporate ethics have made its way into the football world.

But what would you expect from an owner who refers to his team as "a brand?"

Here is just a thought from me that may be wrong...It isn't like the Pats have been the Cowboys of the '90's or a serious overwhelming power of some sort. If I am wrong, they have won during recent years by 3 points here maybe 7 points there. So they weren't the Steelers. So the camera think really could have made a difference right? Or am I off base here?

This year it looks like they are goin to blow people out but in previous years alll there games were scratch and claw.
