I hate to ruin everyone else's fun and Super Bowl plans, but the San Diego Chargers are a bad football team. So bad, in fact, that they're going to lose at home on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs while the game is blacked out locally. Los Angeles will write articles laughing at our fanbase and saying how they don't even want the Chargers until Norv Turner is gone, and they'll be right.
Not one person can explain to me how the 2011 Chargers is any different than the 2010 Chargers, because there is no difference. "But this team has Vincent Jackson", you say. Shut up, adults are talking. You are a baby that is too dumb to realize that Antonio Gates' might actually be playing on a prosthetic foot and nobody has told us yet. Those two things cancel each other out. Last week, with Richard Goodman and Wes Welker not able to get open against the Patriots terrible CBs, it looked an awful lot like the terrible 2010 Chargers team.
Here are the things the Chargers have become known for:
- Putting up big offensive stats, and sometimes defensive stats.
- Playing up or down to the level of the competition.
- Winning or losing every game in the 4th quarter.
- Never, ever winning the turnover battle unless it's handed to them on a silver platter.
- Playing as if it's the first time anyone on the team has been introduced to the sport of American Football.
