SNF Live-Blog: IND-SD, First Half

Sunday, November 11, 2007


Ah, the beauty of the confused look that always seems to rest upon the visage of Norval Eugene Turner. The Chargers are 4-4 for now, pending the inevitable NORV! Collapse. If you don't have a rooting interest, schadenfreude always works.

No Marvin Harrison, no Dallas Clark (glad I sat him on the FF team today), but there's still Joseph Addai and the defense.

The camera can't get any closer to Al can it? - Mookie

One of the few times I'm actually glad that I don't have HD.

I really, really, hate this intro. Bring back Pink. - Mookie

Hi there, A-Rod. Thanks for joining the comments section....oh, and Viniatieri's kickoff is returned 89 yards by Darren Sproles to the house. Kick is up and good, and it's 7-0, Chargers. I credit the powder blue uniforms. They need to wear those every week at home. Seriously.

Dude looked like he was running in San Diego...away from the fires. - Dummy

Ouch. Looks like no one came to play on special teams today, as the Indy returner gets out to around midfield on the kickoff. Addai gets stuffed and Aaron Moorhead, filling in for Harrison, gets the catch on 2nd down, and Ben Utecht gets another pass from Manning for a first (Utecht, filling in for Dallas Clark.) Manning goes deep for Reggie Wayne in the end zone, and Antonio Cromartie gets flagged for pass interference.

Craphonso? Name of the year. - Mookie

My dad just called me about this: "How much shit did Craphonso Thorpe catch in middle school? Had to have been mocked endlessly."

Addai grabs 2 on the next play after the auto first down. Cromartie picks Peyton in the end zone, and we did not get a shot of Manning Face, sadly. San Diego does jack shit on a three and out, and Mike Scifres is going to be a busy man tonight if this continues. Now the Colts get even better field position due to a false start.

We go to the break with the San Diego Chicken dancing. AWK-WARD. Even more awkward is how Blogger is acting for me right now.

Sorry for the delay. Manning throws another pick, this time to Shaun Phillips, and the Chargers are moving into Indy territory. LDT just moved it for a 16 yard gain inside the Indy 20. The Chargers can't do much with it and settle for a Nate Kaeding field goal 10-0, Chargers now, and the Colts look out of it early.

May I please revise my pregame prediction?

Has John Madden really blamed BOTH interceptions on Manning? Is he allowed to do that? - OMDQ


No, no you may not revise. I'm stuck to mine too. Peyton will be calling Madden after the game to remind him of the contract they have wherein he is not responsible for any of his errors.

The Colts look like they're going to go three and out after the kickoff right now, and here comes a false start flag. They are going three and out as Manning barely avoids a safety. I think we saw some hangdog look there, but not quite full-on Manning Face yet.

HOLY SHIT SPROLES DOES IT AGAIN. San Diego muffs the extra point try as Scifres couldn't get the ball down for a hold and tries to pass it, but we've got a flag -- which is picked up. 16-0, Chargers. Raise your hands if you saw this coming.

Whoa Madden just coughed up a hairball. - AA
It was probably a 3-legged turkey, AA. - Dummy


Kick off to Craphonso, brings it back out, and here comes Peyton.

"NORV TURNER WAS RIGHT!!!" - JM

Has this ever happened before? - Hanrahan


Not that I'm aware of. Peyton gets a first down on a throw to a tight end, and converts another one at midfield. He has not thrown to one of the wideouts successfully yet. Marcus Harris gets the sack, and whoa, backflippin'!

"Marcus Harris is trying out for the Olympics." - AM

Eric Weddle then nails Reggie Wayne one the short pass, and we've got 3rd and fucking forever. And that's pick #3 for Peyton, #2 to Antonio Cromartie -- WE HAVE MANNING FACE! Rivers tosses to Gates for a first, and the Chargers want to get in the end zone again here as they rush it with LDT. Rivers nearly gets picked in the end zone, but the Indy player is rumbling towards the other end zone anyway in a wasted effort -- for now. It looks like it didn't hit the ground, but the whistle was blown. The ball rolled off a Colt's butt.

"Inadvertent whistles" jack the Colts out of a return and probably a score.

Did Al just say Addai won a national championship at LSU the same year he won the superbowl? LSU wasnt even in a BCS game his senior year! - Keelay


Oof. And Norval's going to challenge that it was an interception. Jesus, this has been a fucked up sequence.

Sorry, computer issues again, and we're back just as Antonio Cromartie grabs his third pick of the game. Hope you have SD's fantasy defense this week. Cromartie busts one hell of a dance in celebration afterwards. I think he'll be starting next week.

Dummy, you know Norv is required to make at least 5 bad decisions per game. This was one. - Mookie
True enough Mookie...I'm thinking about setting him and Billick up on a blind date. - Dummy


We want that meeting taped. Chargers get a first down, and Rivers bobbles the snap.

"I mean, fumbling a snap is automatic. It's like brushing your teeth." - JM. That rant about snap fumbling is the most passionate I've heard Madden be in years when not talking about food.

As the Chargers keep driving, I want to make sure to highlight you all in the comments more, some of you brought your A-game today.

"Did the quarterback pull out?" - JM. Are we talking about Tom Brady again??? - Hanrahan

John Madden's acting like Phillip Rivers whipped his cock out on national TV. It's a fumbled snap, not an affront to our sensibilities, John. - Oops Pow Surprise

(golf claps)

Anyway, SD's gonna come up a bit short on the third down pass to Gates, I think. They're measuring, but they've got the first down and it'll be a first and goal. LDT gets the score on 3rd down, and this is getting really, really ugly. I should also tell you that I have Peyton as my QB tonight, and I'm really getting fucked right now (especially because my other QB is Jason Campbell and he threw 3 TDs today.) Chargers 23-0. Blech.

11 carries, 38 yards for LT. That's a great game for Shaun Alexander. - Mookie

ZING!

Tomlinson hasn't had a typical "LT" game yet this season? Did I hear you right, Al?

What, the 24 carries for 198 yards and four touchdowns in Week 6 didn't do it for you? - OMDQ

Thanks for bringing up the Broncos game again, dude. Ouch. Same to you, Dummy. I'm still smarting from that one.

That Denny Green commercial should be so much better. So much wasted potential...it's like the Ryan Leaf of Coors Light commercials. - OMDQ

Agreed. There were so many ways it could go and it wound up being particularly lame.

as a chargers fan, just hearing the name "Ryan Leaf" gives me a nervous tic. - Anon

Hearing the name Ryan Leaf ought to unleash a dormant case of Tourette's in any Chargers fan. I think the same goes for Norv Turner's name.

John says Indy can't force stuff -- but they kind of have to force passes because they're down by 20+ points. The refs call illegal contact on 3rd down, and Indy gets a first down as a result. Next throw is over the middle to the tight end Fletcher.

"I think Addai is getting paid off for what Adrian Peterson did to them last week." - JM. I know what he was getting at, but it came out wrong. Manning throws it to Craphonso for another first.

I am not very good at math, but isnt 39,000 more than 37,000? Why is manning ranked 2nd? - Keelay.

NBC's graphics designers aren't any better at it than you are.

Wow.....the Colts just look terrible tonight. Bill Simmons says the officials will keep them in the game now. - AA
I finally figured it out. It's Grossman playing with Manning's jersey on. - Mookie

+1 to both of you. Another throw to Craphonso, but this one isn't close enough for a first down, and running Addai hasn't seemed to work at all tonight. First down, Indy, thanks to Fletcher catching another one over the middle. Manning puts one up to Reggie Wayne, and he's got end zone. 23-7, Chargers, as the kick is up and good by Viniateri.

"That's what the Colts needed to get back in the game."- John Madden

A Touchdown? You think??? - AA

This is a reflection of quite possibly the dumbest line of thought ever by an analyst: the repeated mantra of "all they need to do is get a score." Of course that's what they need to do. Everyone fucking knows it. No need to even say it. Darren Sproles doesn't sniff end zone this time, and the ball will actually be brought back to start due to a hold. So, SD's special teams are not quite perfect.

Rivers hurls a ball near no one in particular and gets an intentional grounding call. Mercifully, the two minute warning is here. Yes, it looks grim for the Colts, however, this is a prime candidate for a NORV!-patented Second Half Choke-Job, and Phillip Rivers seems willing to comply if the Indy defense can get a pick or two.

"If I were the Colts, I'd just jam him and ride him" - Madden getting horny - Mookie.

Ew ew ew. Nightmare fuel. Tomlinson gets good yardage on a screen pass, not quite enough for a first.

"Maybe there is a hangover from last week's game with the Patriots." - JM. Did Tom Brady and Bill Belichick slip the entire Colts team roofies or something, John? The Chargers had to punt, and a few plays later, Manning hits Reggie Wayne for 39, all the way to midfield, and the Colts use their last time-out.

I love getting in the seam. That's about the ninth mention from AM about that seam. - AA
Wow, Dick Nolan passed. The 49ers are going to show their appreciation by getting 1 first down tomorrow. - Mookie.


You all are bringing it tonight. Peyton can't get them in the end zone, so without a time out, they do a fire-drill FG, and Viniateri misses it from 42, so it's 23-7, Chargers, at the half. See you in the 2nd half thread.

What are the odds that Reggie Wayne catches 20 balls for 300 yards tonight? Like 2:1, right?

I never realized this before, but Bill Parcells' face reminds me of one of the local sports writers. It makes me quite uncomfortable.

Does anyone else think that the Chargers wish they had Drew instead of Rivers?

Reminds me of the dilemma the Browns are gonna have...having to let go of a better quarterback because they drafted Quinn and feel it necessary to go with the unproven, but highly drafted, quarterback.

AA, it would be even better if the Sonics could win a frickin game. Maybe they're doing this on purpose to make the owner change his mind about moving.

The best, "You wouldn't make it in Pro Football" commercial was when the dude held up the jock-strap.

Wow, Dick Nolan passed. The 49ers are going to show their appreciation by getting 1 first down tomorrow.

Mook- You know that's definitely the case.

Nov 11, 2007, 9:49:00 PM  

Dummy- Email me when you get a chance.

Well....I'd make it for tomorrow's live-blog, but I don't think the internet will hold up with a windstorm head our way.

Dick Nolan passed away and Wikipedia hasn't been updated to reflect that fact yet.

I expected better from you, Wikipedia.

And it's Comcast....they're bound to ruin my day.

"No one better in this situation than Peyton Manning." - JM

Except for that guy in New England...what's his name again?

Nov 11, 2007, 9:51:00 PM  

How bad is it that you had to Wiki Dick Nolan....I have no idea who that guy is. Is he Mike Nolan's dad?

Nov 11, 2007, 9:51:00 PM  

I love getting in the seam. That's about the ninth mention from AM about that seam.

Nov 11, 2007, 9:52:00 PM  

Yeah, he's Mike Nolan's dad.

I looked him up because I thought he had already been dead for awhile and couldn't figure out why NBC was just talking about him now.

Another injury......don't the Seahawks play tomorrow?

This should be way more than a two possesion game...the Chargers are in prime position to lose a heart-breaker.

An AP story today had the word "seam", only it was spelled "seem". Also, "previously" was spelled "perviously" in the first paragraph.

Not a good day for that editor.

Along with Nolan, they will also deliver a eulogy for the 2007 49ers season HEYYYYOOOO!!!

Agreed Dummy.....place your bets.

OMDQ, are you sure this wasn't ESPN.com?

Evil, but hilarious as hell.

Mike Holmgren called that last play I believe.

That's why Elam is a better clutch kicker than the "great" Vinitarri

mookie - I think it was the AP. I remember seeing it on Yahoo! Sports. The writer was Brett Martell, if memory serves.

Although ESPN wasn't perfect today - the Google Reader headline said that Colt Brennan tied Ty Detmar's record.

Ty Detmer was unavailable for comment.

Random fact: I didn't realize that Ty Detmer and I share a birthday.

My kid is laughing his ass off at Keith Olberman right now.

Your kid is my hero....what do they say about kids knowing more than adults? Or something???
