So, Kansas City Chiefs, you give up 12 points in the last 73 seconds and try to take the title of best choke artists this year? Who do you think you are? Stellar choke jobs and last minute losses were all we had going, the few things San Diego has done brilliantly this season. But you just couldn’t let the Chargers lose in grand fashion, could you?
You’re selfish, Chiefs. Very selfish.
As a result, ears are peeking up in the Gaslamp, whispers of mathematic playoff possibilities are percolating throughout otherwise downtrodden sports bars. Hope is alive while harsh reality is kept at bay.
With Denver falling to Carolina, the Bolts are still technically alive for playoff consideration. Once again, it’s not going to happen.
I’ll tell you why.
From Week 1 to the Super Bowl, the NFL can be eerily predictable at times with trends and style. For instance, in a game, when a running back fumbles the ball and it bounces right back into his hands, you know the game is just going to go that way. Through Week 15, the Chargers have a propensity for giving a gallant effort resulting in an epic failure. This trend will continue until the final ticks of the Denver game Week 17.
I like what this team will be in 2009 and feel they can meet expectations. Hopefully for Bolts fans that championship window will still be open.
