Rewind: Fake Punt Fail Followed by Philip’s Ridiculous INT
By Ernie Padaon
Don’t know why Lovie Smith was trying to fake the punt at that point, but at least you can say that he was going for the neck on he throat right there. It didn’t hurt the outcome of the game, so he won’t get too much slack for that play.
BUT, what in the world is Philip Rivers doing on the next play. He runs out of the pocket and can throw the ball out of bounds without getting an intentional grounding penalty, instead he throws it in the “open field”? SERIOUSLY!?!? Are we trying to throw interceptions now?
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! Can anyone explain this interception? Maybe VJ didn’t see the ball?
