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.)

    Hey Jay! So Steve Smith is playing so that means Crockett Gilmore isn’t number 1 player in offense. So with that being said would you still start Gilmore over Richard Rodgers.

    Why to start Crockett Gilmore vs Richard Rodgers

      @Dom B: Naw, I’d go Rodgers there then.

    So….. my six receivers active today are DeHop, Jeffery, Martavis Bryant, John Brown, ARob and Decker… they have a combined 149 points right now. I’m beating my opponent 138.9 to 35.8. Jesus. Christ.

    Oh, and I have Mike Evans on his bye. Lost Charles last week, but I already feel pretty good about my team’s chances lol. Going to 5-1 on the season. Imagine I still had Charles….

        Another owner offered me Brandon Cooks and A Johnson a few weeks ago for Jeffery and said, “Take it or leave it, best offer you’d get for Jeffery.”

        Hah.

      @Scott: I’m not even sure the Steelers had a quarterback today.

        @Jay: Oh, I see it was Landry Jones. Out of left field.

          @Scott: Plus a Vick that went like 3-8 or something with -15 yards, whatever it was.

    would you drop Gordon for M, Bryant?

      @SJC: can you drop anyone else?

      • SJC says:

        @Jay:
        My Rb’s are lacey, Yeldon, C.Johnson and Lamar Miller, Gordon and my Wr’s are Maclin, snead, calvin Johnson and AJ Greem…he has produced the least and not sure if he will going forward….2 fumbles today…any thoughts?

        • Jay

          Jay says:

          @SJC: Based on that, I guess he is droppable, but I’d want him slightly more than Snead. I’d drop Snead for Bryant in a second.

    Std league. I’m up 18
    He’s got Jordan Matthews and Pats Def

          @Zandy: They already did better than I thought. Looked to be a slaughterfuck in the beginning tbh…

    ROS 0.5ppr, David Johnson or Matt Jones? Looking to dump one to stash ASJ (have J. Thomas at TE).
