Well, despite my completely abnormal and masochistic homerism of my Chargers, I do try (really!) not to focus them unless it’s absolutely unavoidable. That allows you, the reader, not to be inundated by Chargers analysis and commentary ad nauseam (nausea also works here) and also allows me not to look so terrible when I say something positive about my Chargers and them going ahead and doing what they do best, and that’s sh*t the bed. This week though, I don’t really have a choice with the Late Games Live Thread, seeing has how the Ravens and 49ers game would have been more entertaining if it didn’t involve either the Ravens or the 49ers, and while the Seahawks certainly have a level of popular notoriety, only about 10 people live in Carolina (either one) and I’m sick of watching people throw fish. I lived there for almost a decade, we have more than that and Space Needle! Regardless, the Chargers are coming off a Monday night loss against the Michael Vick led Steelers, and seeing as how he went something like 2-for-4 with -8 passing yard today, I’m just going to go ahead and witness the Packers destroying any semblance of happiness I could had left this Sunday.
For the record though, the Chargers have one game per season where they overachieve and somehow manage to win against a heavily favored opponent. Is this that game? Totally! (Homerism alert.)
