Bo Jack is back on the Chargers attack. Well my friends, we pulled it off. San Diego fans let their voice be heard around the nation, and the San Diego Super Chargers made some noise as well.
The Chargers are now at full strength and riding a high, rolling into the playoffs, as well as peaking at the perfect time. The danger is not over though, not by a long shot, but I think the momentum and fire in these guys can carry over into Saturday night when we host the Indy Colts led by one Payton Manning.
This will no doubt be a highly entertaining game as the Colts are peaking too. On that front, I will not make audacious predictions, as we all know how dangerous that team can be.
First, lets focus on a few individual and team milestones.
Lets start with LaDanian Tomlinson, scoring three touchdowns last night, putting him in second place on the all time rushing touchdowns list, second only to Emmit Smith.
Then, we have My Quarterback, Mr. Philip Rivers, who is quickly becoming one of the elite NFL quarterbacks. He reached the 4000 yard passing plateau, with 4009,Joining my child hood hero as the only other Charger to accomplish this feat. Fouts did that twice if memory serves. Also, Rivers has surpassed Fouts in the all time TD passes in a season by a Charger now standing at 34.Thinking back, it seems as if Fouts had more, but the records don’t lie.
Rivers also had the highest quarterback rating in the NFL for the first time.
The Chargers just rolled over the Broncos and crushed them. However I am still concerned with our defense, certainly much improved as of late, and having flashes of brilliance, but a QB like Manning can pick a defense apart.
What has happened with Norv Turner?
It really seems as if he has read my articles or someone has, He is doing everything now EXACTLY as I have said it should be done. He must have learned how to coach in the last few weeks. I love the way he has been coming out of the gate at full throttle, building momentum and trick plays right off the bat, and getting us a lead and not letting up. Hester’s getting more involved now, Nanee, even Manumaleuna, who caught a TD pass last night. Sproles is getting in there and making things happen. This, and Gates, Tomlinson looking like Tomlinson, defense looking like last years team, and using Vincent Jackson as the weapon that he is, and he made a John Jefferson type of catch last night, and Rivers is just frigging awesome.
Lets just hope folks, that it’s not too late.
The playoffs are going to be a lot of fun to watch. I’m so happy for Chad Pennington and the Dolphins getting in, and of their accomplishments, congrats to all the teams that made it in, this was a great year.
Drew Brees was so close to Dan Marino’s all time passing yardage record. I really wanted him to get that record.
As I said earlier, I think the success and momentum will roll into Saturday night at the “Q”,5pm west coast time. GO CHARGERS, God Bless you all. Bo Jack
