That was fun. I didn’t get to rant on about the game on Sunday, but I am back in the morning to share the excitement with the rest of the crew. First off, our defense is horrid! We made the Kansas City Chiefs offense look all studly and stuff. Second, what is up with all the penalties in the game. Pass interference, holding, false start and everything. That is sloppy football. Flags and missed tackles. Something needs to be cleaned up.

Finally, to all the awesome things that happened. Philip Rivers and the offense made it happen in the 2nd half of the game. Ladarius Green is getting more and more reps and it is paying off. He is a playmaker. All he does is make big plays. That touchdown run he made was ridiculous. When he runs, you don’t think he is fast when you look at him, but then you notice that nobody is catching him.

Keenan Allen again was a beast catching the football. He eats up single coverage.

The team is trusting Ryan Mathews more and more on short yardage situations. That is HUGE. He has the ability to get it done in those situations. He pulled it off a couple of times.

Danny Woodhead was amazing in the 2 minute drill at the end of the game. He kept picking up huge chunks of yards on the short dumpoffs over to him and he got out of bounds. Such a playmaker.

When we needed a play at the end of the game, Seyi Ajirotutu was the guy that made it. TUTU! Maybe he should get some consideration at being the starter opposite of Keenan Allen. Vincent Brown. ZERO catches.

The offense has to carry the defense and has to outscore other teams. They got the job done against one of the top defenses on Sunday. AND I don’t care who they had on their sideline with injuries.
