THE SEVERITY OF THE INJURY


75558065DM030_DENVER_BRONCO

Turns out that LT’s 2nd degree MCL sprain was a serious injury.

From Chris Mortensen at ESPN;

San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson was diagnosed Tuesday with a second degree knee sprain of the medial collateral ligament that will require at least six more weeks to heal, according to his agent, Tom Condon.”

 

“The doctor said this is the type of injury that would seriously hamper LaDainian’s ability to cut or push off the leg,” Condon said. “His quadriceps muscle had already atrophied one inch. He absolutely can’t play in the Pro Bowl and there shouldn’t be any question as to why he couldn’t go when [the Chargers] played New England.”

 

LT will miss the Pro Bowl. Willis McGahee will be his replacement.

Rivers had knee surgery before the AFC Championship!


39104_450wh

“He runs his mouth too much.”  “He needs to focus on football.”  “He’s the new Ryan Leaf.”

 

SHUT-UP!

 

How many of you knew Philip Rivers had arthroscopic knee surgery on January 14th, the Monday before the AFC championship game?  Who in their right mind has knee surgery the Monday before a Sunday game?  Philip FREAKING Rivers, that’s who!  A man who obviously cares a ton and warrants the respect of all San Diegans just like other San Diego greats such as Tony Gwynn, Dan Fouts, LT, Antonio Gates, Jake Peavy, etc.  This guy played on a sprained left MCL for the latter half of the season and then partially tore his right ACL in the Colts game trying to deliver a championship to this city and help his team overcome ridiculous odds that rival Gilgamesh(Gilgamesh is credited with having been a demigod of superhuman strength who built a great wall to defend his people from external threats).  I would venture out there and say that we now know Norv Turner’s  Doubtful classification for Philip Rivers was accurate for the AFC championship game and not some mere ruse like the Brady/Belichick mockery week-in and week-out throughout the season.

Many of you might have seen this article, “Rivers undergoes successful knee surgery”.  However, my source is none other than Jim Nantz who appeared on the Scott & BR Show this morning and told this heroic story.    Apparently there is a broadcasting agreement that allows broadcasters to get privy information from the teams before the game in order to enhance the broadcasts.  These announcers do not share this information with anyone; not producers, not directors, and definitely not Bill Belichick.  However, the Chargers did not disclose that Philip Rivers had already had knee surgery.  “They basically lied to us”, said Jim Nantz.  Jim was not unhappy about it though, and completely understood that the Chargers would not want that information out there until after the Super Bowl… if they had advanced.  Knowing the way the Patriots play, I’m sure Richard Seymour Butts would’ve tried to “accidentally” fall into Philip’s legs multiple times.  I don’t know if this falls in to the “If you’re not cheating, you’re not trying.” category, but I agree wholeheartedly with this decision of non-disclosure for the safety and longevity of San Diego’s BADASS quarterback who should never ever be mentioned in the same sentence with that fiasco of a #1 draft pick we drafted in 1998.

 

NOTHING ELSE MATTERS!

 

Philip Rivers cares about this community!

The 19th overall pick selected in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft has arguably developed into the best corner back in the game today.

He led the NFL with 11 INTs.  4 of them came from Peyton Manning.

He set the Chargers team record for most INTs in a season.

In week 8 against Houston he had 2 INTs and 2 TDs & a recovered fumble in the end zone and a 70 yard INT return.

In week 9 against the Vikings he returned a missed field goal 109 yards setting a record for the longest play in NFL history.

In week 10 against Indy he had 3 INTs and earned Defensive Player of the Week in the NFL.  He became the first player to ever intercept Peyton Manning 3 times in one game.  The one handed INT on the sideline was the best I have ever seen

In weeks 13, 14 and 15 he had 2 INTs against the Chiefs, 1 against the Titans and 1 against Detroit.

In the Divisional Playoffs he returned an INT 89 yards for a touchdown.  (Terrible holding call Ref)

In the AFC Championship game, he had an INT against Tom Brady and the Perfect Patriots.

He was selected to this year’s Pro Bowl team and the First Team Associate Press All Pro Team.

He is signed through the 2010 season.

GAME BALLS

Defense:  Stephen Cooper – 16 tackles and a pass deflection that prevented an Indy TD.

Offense:  The Offensive Line – No sacks allowed.

Special Teams:  Mike Scifres – Clutch 66 yard punt out of the endzone.

REGGIE WAYNE

You Got Jacked Up!

Mcree’s hit on Wayne not only prevented Indy from getting a first down in the final minutes of the game.  It also caused Indy to use a timeout and kept Reggie Wayne off the field on 4th down in the final minutes of the game.

THE AFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME

This is the fourth time in team history the Chargers have played in the AFC Championship game.  Everyone remembers 1994, but the Chargers also played against the Raiders in 1980 and Cincinnati in 1981.  The 1981 game was the coldest NFL game ever played at 9 degrees below zero.

THOUGHTS ON THE DIVISIONAL PLAYOFFS


Jessie Football

WHO IS HEALTHY?

Antonio Gates – No one knows if Gates will play.  Don’t expect to hear anything until game time.  Either a trainer is going to stick a big needle in his toe or he will be in a velour baby blue jumpsuit on the sideline.

If the thought of Gates not playing scares you keep in mind that the Colts lost one of their best players for the entire year, Dwight Freeney, in week 10 vs. our San Diego Chargers.  No big needle will allow Freeney to play this week.

Lorenzo Neal – The best blocking fullback in football and future Hall of Famer is practicing after breaking his leg.   It is not yet known if he will be able to light fools up this week.  Memo to coaches if he plays, please don’t try to use “trickery” by handing him the ball on 4th and 1.

droppedImage

Lo Neal reminds me of Ram Man from He-Man, minus the axe.

Marvin Harrison – Harrison hasn’t played since Week 5 with a knee injury.  He is listed as questionable but expected to play.    My crazy conspiracy theory of the week is that Harrison had surgery and the Colts kept this a secret from everyone.  I also believe that dinosaurs are fake because according to Carl Everett, no one has ever seen a dinosaur and the bible doesn’t say anything about them.

CHARGER FANS NEED TO SHOW THESE GUYS SOME LOVE

Phil Rivers – I love his shit talking, errr passion.  Charger fans are pussies and have not yet embraced this guy the way they should.  Yeah he is cocky and has an arrogant smile, but that’s fucking rad because he plays for OUR team.  In his first season as a starter he led us to a 14-2 season and went to the Pro Bowl.  At 6’5 he is a physical specimen and weight room junkie.  He is a winner.  He has won at every level.  He has led us to come from behind victories (last year Cincinnati game and this year’s regular season and playoff game against a tough Titans team).  The guy never quits.  If Rivers has time to throw he will make plays.

Norv Turner – The media loves to hate on Norv Turner.  You know what I say to that?  Fuck the media.  Norv could have easily lost this team after a 1-3 start.  Instead we won our division, won our first playoff game in 14 years and the team is peaking at the right time.  I am also starting to dig his play calling of pushing the ball down the field.  Our WRs were wide open last weekend.

Show these guys some love.  With them running the team we have won 7 games in a row.

SPECIAL TEAMS MATTER

-MIKE SCIFRES should be in the Pro Bowl.  He drops dimes on fools.

-Please take care of the ball SPROLES.  We don’t need another Eric Parker incident.

-Kasim Osgood you are the best around.

-David Binn is the only Charger left from the 1994 Super Bowl team.  He has also had sexual intercourse with Pamela Anderson.  He gets my vote for best all around long snapper.

Would Hepatitis C stop you from long snapping with Pamela?

THE TURNOVER BATTLE

The Chargers led the league with 48 takeaways and turnover margin of plus -24.  Who was second in both categories?  The Colts with 37 takeaways and turnover margin of plus-18.

BOB SANDERS IS OVERATED

Bob Sanders was voted AP Defensive Player of the year.  Every writer in America has a boner for this guy because he is 5’8.  How could he have had a better year than Antonio Cromartie who only received three votes for this honor?  Once again, no love for a Bolt.

CONGRATS TO ALL OUR ASSOCIATED PRESS ALL PRO’S

Three Chargers were named to the team Associated Press All Pro team on Wednesday.  LaDainian Tomlinson was a unanimous selection.  Also named, Antonio Cromartie and Lorenzo Neal.

AROUND THE LEAGUE QUICK THOUGHTS

The NFC is boring.

Is there any question that the AFC is the dominate league?  The road to the Super Bowl is looking harder these days if you are an AFC team.

The Tony Romo/ Jessica Simpson story is retarded.

The only problem I have with Romo going to Cabo with Jessica Simpson is that her father went with them.  I hope he taxed that dingo up all weekend and the walls were thin enough for Joe to here.  I never want to know what it feels like/sounds like listening to your daughter get plowed by an NFL pro.

Even with Romo going to Cabo, Dallas should be fine and even finer if T.O. is healthy.  Just make sure Romo isn’t the holder on special teams.  We all know how that went last year.

Why I hate Peyton Manning (this week)

Why I hate Peyton Manning (this week)

With Sunday’s match up against the Colts approaching I am looking for every reason to hate Peyton Manning.  It’s not as easy to hate Peyton Manning as it is to hate d!ckhe@d Tom Brady. See the Stetson add below.

droppedImage-1

Cowboy Brady. Barf

Peyton Manning is a really good QB.  He scores mad freaking fantasy football points.  He makes players around him better.  He made me laugh with his SNL United Way skit and some of his commercials, “laser rocket arm” comes to mind…But I am going to take my best shot…

Why I hate Peyton Manning (this week)

Reason #1

The one smudge on Mr. Manning’s resume is his “incident” with assistant  trainer Jamie Ann Naughright while at Tennessee.  This excerpt is from Wikipedia….so you know it has to be true
In 1996, while still quarterback at the University of Tennessee , Manning dropped his pants while being treated by assistant athletic trainer Jamie Ann Naughright. After an investigation, the university concluded the incident was a “mooning” gone awry and not sexual in nature, and Manning was disciplined and required to apologize in writing to Naughright.[48] The university chose to settle Naughright’s sexual harassment claims (which included the Manning incident) for $300,000.[49] In 2003, Manning settled a 2002 lawsuit filed by Naughright for $300,000. In the suit Naughright alleged that “Manning: A Father, His Sons and a Football Legacy”, a book written by Manning, his father and author John Underwood, defamed her.[50]

A MOONING GONE AWRY?  How does a mooning go awry?  Nothing is good when the word awry is used to describe what happened.  Here are some scenarios where a mooning may have gone awry.

Instead of bending over, pulling your pants down and spreading your ass cheeks so some unsuspecting person can see your asshole, you –

A.Show an unsuspecting person your cock.

B.Show an unsuspecting person your cock with a prop or hidden in a prop (hot dog in a bun joke).

C.Show an unsuspecting person your scrotum

D.Show an unsuspecting person a picture of a passed out person with your scrotum on their forehead.

E.Show an unsuspecting person your boner.

Scenarios A. B. C and D. are all surprisingly funny and acceptable in a locker room setting around a bunch of meat heads

However, scenario E. is crossing the line.

Peyton Manning you should be ashamed of yourself.  Grow up.  Leave the assistant trainer alone.  Petyon Manning is perverted in my book.

Reason #2  Why I don’t like Peyton Manning (this week)

His snap counts and audibles.  We get it.  You changed the play.  Just hike the ball.  Blazer! Blazer! Omaha Omaha Hut hut HUT Omaha! Blazer! blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I also don’t like your three strep drops, your five step drops, your seven step drops, your play action fakes, and you making your key reads.

Reason #3 Why I hate Peyton Manning (this week)

THIS GUY.

Close your eyes because the below picture burns.  Whoever thought this photo shoot was a good idea is a moron.  Eli should be flagged fifteen yards for unnecessary g@yness.  Still, I am sure there is some freak out there that has this picture scotch-taped to his or her wall. Errr locker.  Than means you # 10.

Put a shirt on Elisha.

Thank you Eli for being a little bitch and crying with your Daddy on draft day in 2004 that, “we don’t want to play in San Diego. Waaaaaaaa!”  And thank you NY Giants for Shawn Merriman.

Your DNA sucks Peyton Manning.  I hate you because of your family’s hatred toward San Diego.

Suck it Peyton and suck it Manning family.
