The demon that was New England has been exercised for my boy's wearing their light blue throwbacks at home last night. The Patriots have done more than a little damage in the play offs to the Chargers but this big win may have turned this season around.
And I don't want to hear about Brady not being there. Merriman isn't there for SD and so I am going to give that one a nice, fresh wash. Their #1 offensive player for our #1 defensive player.
Oh, but what a pretty defense it was for us. Did you see those four sacks and one interception? After the shake up of losing Merriman I think perhaps Fuckin' Norv is finally realizing that you have to prepare your players for all contingencies including losing such a dynamic team leader.
And speaking of team leader... there is my boy... I just love Phillip Rivers. A passion and love for the game of football. Throwing three TDs for the night to Malcom Floyd,to Vincent Jackson and to Antonio Gates. He looked sure of himself and his receivers.
Oh, and the night also added a nice little record for LT, who continues to play hurt and continues to gain yardage despite Fuckin' Norv repeatedly sending him up the god-damn middle, as he crossed the 11,000 career rushing yard mark. Sproles has been an incredible back up for LT, and this season has become his own man. He is amazing to watch and at only 5'6" I think he has an advantage as he is just too fast and too slippery and sometimes too small for the hulks on the other side to grab hold of.
So YEA!! my boys won, my team won and this moves their season to 3-3 but I feel the need for an asterisks on that record after the robbery that was the Hockuli debacle at the Denver game. We are now on the road, and a very long road it will be as next we are in Buffalo, but it is the week following that worries me. Going to London to play the Saints as traveling that much can have some strange effects.
But today I am pleased with this 30-10 win over those damn play-off ending Pats.
