Who said the San Diego Chargers couldn’t win an award tonight? The San Diego Chargers defense won an award for allowing Ray Rice to convert on a 4th and 29 play. The defense took bad angles and missed tackles and helped the Baltimore Ravens back into a football game. That game was locked up and we were going to make a run at the playoffs after that victory, but then we sucked it up on the defensive end, I guess Ray Rice had an excellent effort on the play also.

I remember sitting in the stadium for the game and I was in a section full of Baltimore Ravens fans, the game looked like it was all locked up, but for some reason there was a bit of nervousness about the upcoming 4th and 29 play. Then Ray Rice made some magic happen and all those quiet Ravens fans erupted. I was sure that the instant replay would say that he came up short, but they gave it to them. The refs even moved that stupid football back a foot and it still was over the first down marker.

So the award goes to the San Diego Chargers for sucking and Ray Rice for making us look even sucker. Dang it!!!!

    That was the only game I attended over the past 3 Norv Turner years. I remember everyone was thinking… he didn’t get it! They are going to review it and he will come up short. Being at the game, and then seeing the Ravens take the ball was shock! There was so much noise in the stadium that I didn’t even hear the refs call. Even with the illegal block on Weddle that was not called, it was an epic failure by a snake bitten Charger team.
