Morning Dump

By Ernie Padaon

OH I feel like I need to hit Miramar Lake and go for a run! All that food and I am stuffed!! Time to work off that extra chub we gained and start getting our Black Friday on. Stay safe and don’t get too grumpy at all the people at the malls today!

November 27 will be an AFC West matchup between the Denver Broncos and the San Diego Chargers. The Broncos enter the game 5-5 while the Chargers are at 4-6. Unfortunately, due to injuries, I think this may prove to be an easy match for the Broncos and will increase the win total for QB Tim Tebow(notes).

SAN DIEGO — The unconventional style of Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow has the whole National Football League talking.

SAN DIEGO — The man in the middle of the Chargers offensive line remains the same — Nick Hardwick, who has been the team’s starting center since 2004.

The Chargers had the third-oldest roster in the league when the season began, according to a study by, and though experience can oftentimes be a positive, all those years of playing has cost the team in the long run. Several veteran players have taken longer than expected to return from injury, and with inexperienced replacements taking their spots in the lineup, the play on the field has suffered.

Though there are plenty of dissimilar characteristics between quarterbacks in San Diego and Denver, it’s easy to find parallels. Each had their throwing mechanics criticized entering the NFL as first-round picks. Each have strong faith – Tebow is an outspoken Christian and Rivers is a Catholic known for living out what he believes.

“They’re just hard players. They don’t stop. They finish the play out,” said Brandyn Dombrowski, expected to start at left tackle. “They’re not going to let up. They’re fast, they’re strong and they’re good rushers.”
