I was at the grocery store today and the person who was bagging my groceries looked at my shirt and said “Chargers? – You know they are not a good team.” I paused mid swipe and looked her right in the eye. I managed to say, in the most non threatening way possible (ok, who am I kidding, I wanted to add her to the punch list) “based on what?”
The Chargers have not played a single snap and yet the stink of Norv Turner and his lackluster band of misfits are still upon us. Seriously, there is no other way to disprove these doubters than to come out swinging – and never stop. The Bolts need to overcome the 4th and 29, the ahead by 21 until the last 3 minutes and all of the other horrible football we, the loyal fans, had to endure. It is time.
I believe that the Chargers are going to do that. I have not heard a single report out of Chargers park that concerns me. I have not heard a single statement from Tom Telesco that tells me that is not his plan. I have not seen or heard a player say they are not all in. I am watching Philip Rivers practicing with the gloves (FINALLY, someone heard us!) and based on Magic Mikes history I would suggest they are staying on.
I’ve got a feeling down deep in my bones, the kind that old people get when a big storm is coming. This is going to be a season to remember for all the right reasons.
The stink will begin to be washed off and next time some non-believer notices my lightning bolt they may just take a moment to think before they say “Chargers kick ass.”
