The TRUTH about Sports

I Hate the Chargers

That’s all there is to it.  When this team first started gelling a few years ago, I was all for them.  Ladanian Tomlinson, Philip Rivers, Antonio Gates, Marty Schottenheimer.  But for some reason, throughout the years, my love and passion for this team has turned it disgust. As  soon as they fired Marty, blaming him for a horrible playoff loss after multiple players mishaps, this team went from heroes to zeroes. A bunch of overrated, underachieving pre-madonnas. They talk shit (Rivers) and expect everyone to bow down to them when they haven’t proven NADA. The only guys that was ever respected on this team was Lorenzo Neal, who is no longer with the team. They don’t back each other up when the going gets tough (L.T.).  Well, guess what, they lost at home today to the Indianapolis Colts.  This was a MUST-WIN game for them.   They”re 2 games behind the Broncos, who just got waxed by the Oakland Raiders. The AFC West is a freakin’ joke. 3/4 teams are WELL under .500 and the division leading Broncos are whopping 6-5. With that said, whoever comes out of this division is a guaranteed first round and out.  I’m not sure what I’d rather see, the Bots not making the playoffs or the Bolts getting waxed in the first round. I’m thinking the former.  Thanks for coming Chargers. Here’s a prediction for the rest of the league: Norv’s gonna hang for this.

Remember the Titans?

Well, they lost on Sunday, 34-13, at home, to the Jets.  I watched this game and for some reason, the Titans never looked like they were in it. That potent running game… 47 yds total.  That defense… 34 points to the Jets.  That passing game… 1 td, 243 yds.  Look, I’m not gonna dig on them now that they’ve lost their first game of the season, I mean they’re still 10-1.  But I want to hear from someone outside of Tennesee who’s picked these guys as Superbowl favorites. The Jets on the other hand, KEEP ON surprising me.  Brett Favre, Thomas Jones, Laveranues Coles, it’s a nice three headed monster but I’m just not shakin’ in my boots. Fortunately for them, they have the Broncos, Niners, Bills, Seahawks and  Dolphins to finish the season, which should leave them with at least a 12-4 record, and a possible first round bye. The game between these two teams was a solid ball game, but didn’t seem like the CLASH that everyone has been hyping all week. Then again, I guess in the NFL, anything can happen. This year is anyone’s year.
