…although I do have a huge gripe.
Chargers 37, Chiefs 7
Let’s start with the gripe, shall we? 1st and goal inside the 5-yard line and LT is given the ball 4 times with no success – in two consecutive games. I understand the whole “moral victory” thing for La Dainian Tomlinson but there’s a point where you play to win the game. Got that Norv?!? You have one of the best QBs and WRs (Vincent Jackson) in the league…let them do their thing!
At any rate, however, it was nice to see the old LT breaking tackles for his first long rush of the season. Hopefully he can keep that up, but the goal line thing has GOT to go.
Nonetheless, the Chargers dominated the lowly Chiefs. And judging by the Jets’ domination of the Raiders I’m hoping for another W next week. Oh, and Go Ravens (vs. Denver)!!
The defense looked much improved and WTG Steve Gregory and Tim Dobbins (who I managed to snag off the waiver wire in a fantasy league!) And let’s not forget Jacob Hester’s blocked punt which HE recovered in the end zone for a TD!! Outstanding!!
And how about Darren Sproles almost breaking a long TD run with one shoe? On soggy grass too.
Kudos also to Nate Kaeding for racking up the fantasy points, including giving me an extra .25 for his tackle.
Next week the Chargers host the Raiders who do not look as good as they did week one when these two met. Let’s hope the momentum carries the Bolts to another victory.
