Dontcha love ready-made excuses? I myself have used, “The water was really cold”, “Uh, sorry. I guess I drank too much”, “The dog ate my computer”, “It was like that when I got here”, “I didn’t know where the plunger was” and many, many others. Hey, let’s take a wander over to…
-After tossing the oblong thingy for 444 yards yesterday, certain squawkers are making the case that DAK! is an MVP candidate. These ramblings are almost exclusively located in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
-Truth Biscuit has been diagnosed as having a hip pointer but that prolonged talk Nagy had with him on the sideline reeks of, “You’re sucking really hard right now so I’m going to pull you because we might do better with a career backup. Please try not to suck this hard next time you’re under center”. Hey, speaking of speculation and hips…
-According to sports news snippets all over the internet, Tua had successful surgery on his…you know. (has anyone ever had an unsuccessful surgery, ever? I mean aside from Meg Ryan) Those in the speculating game have tossed out their obligatory “HOW DOES THIS AFFECT THE DRAFT SIX MONTHS FROM NOW?”
-Is there a crack in the armour? The Pats run game is a shambles, the tight end spot is a wasteland and Brady’s passer rating under pressure is a miserable 48.5. Much like those footballs back then, Dreamboat must feel deflated when he contemplates those numbers.
-That Falcons D that was as easy to score on as your mom after three beers? They’ve been replaced by a solid unit (a preference of your mom’s, btw) that has surrendered a mere 12 points in the last two games. Huh.
TO THE GAME!
The Chargers are the ‘home’ team here in the same way that L.A. is their ‘home’ in that it is such in name only. They practiced up at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs to get ready for this game. You can pretty much count on Rivers float-ceptioning a few this evening because he is who he is. A wise OC would give rb Gordon the rock 25+ times against K.C.’s 31st-ranked run D. That would slow down the game and give ex-San Diego its only real chance at a W.
What are your tried and true excuses?
