NFL Playoffs Open Thread: Chargers @ Colts

Sunday, January 13, 2008


Philip and NORV! are probably going to need one of these by halftime.

Hi folks. Here's an open thread for Bolts-Colts, as you watch the douchebag Philip Rivers, LDT, and the greatness that is NORV! take on Peyton & Co. in the RCA Dome. (I think I've already made it very clear who I'm pulling for.) Your announcers today are the CBS 2nd team: Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf; while much more tolerable than Nantz and Simms, they are capable of doozies and some nice cliches.

Things worth counting/drinking to, if you are so inclined:
1) NORV! Face
2) Manning Face
3) LDT stewing in the corner of the Chargers bench
4) Peyton ads during the game
5) Mentions of Shawne Merriman's size without noting his roid use

I'll be around in the comments and I'll see you for the Giants-Cowboys live blog. Also, enjoy this fine animated parody of the Manning ads with the douchebag Rivers. (Hat tip to KSK's Christmas Ape.)

why does it sound like there's a smallplane flying inside the RCA Dome?

Steve - that same sound was there during the Pats-Colts regular season game. I forgot what the exact explanation was for it, although CBS claims it was their audio error. Folks who listened to that game via the radio broadcast said there was no such noise.

Do you think that Marvin's fumble was complete because of Dierdorf's "lack of game action?" Sometimes shit happens, just ask Ryan Grant.

J.J. said...
Jan 13, 2008, 1:37:00 PM  

Marvin Harrison has always had playoff issues, so let's say that turnover is less than shocking. It's a bit better because it happened in the Chargers' end of the field.

Not that the Chargers' offense is good enough to take advantage right now.

Norv still doesn't know he has Tomlinson on his team, I think.

Norv looks frustrated after that time out. Maybe he's confused about why the punting unit isn't out there.

Anonymous said...
Jan 13, 2008, 1:41:00 PM  

Seriously, Dierdorf, if Norv really thought it was their size and strength against the Colts' speed, then he'd ram LTD down their throats, but obviously he doesn't feel that way and is trying to beat the Colts at their own game.

What a horrid throw by Rivers. Lucky that didn't get intercepted, but if he doesn't start throwing to the correct shoulder on those out routes, Indy's DB's are going to start jumping those routes.

Anonymous said...
Jan 13, 2008, 2:19:00 PM  

@mw,

there's no penalty for illegal contact once the QB leaves the pocket, because the recievers are regarded as (potential) blockers once the QB leaves the pocket. Maybe they are hitting Rivers a bit late, but I think it's been pretty clean so far

pm said...
Jan 13, 2008, 2:20:00 PM

Jan 13, 2008, 2:23:00 PM  

@richard:

You might be right; I've looked at it on TIVO a couple times and he may have gotten there a tad early, but the DB's got a right to the ball, as well. If this game is in SD, probably a pass interference call.

Why is everybody that afraid of New England? I know 17-0, but there hasn't been a beatdown in weeks and teams are playing with them. I don't know that they'll lose, but the first team that makes them turn the ball over and minimizes their mistakes will have a great shot. That's why Jacksonville lost. One fumble, one dropped pass at the end zone, game over.

J.J. said...
Jan 13, 2008, 2:38:00 PM  

It was a good point by Boomer. Luckett was demoted for a few horrible games and he makes another bad call there.

MW...you never know and it certainly looks like Indy is getting a few breaks...the INT could have been called a bobble, the late hits on Rivers, the PI not called and that call.

Anonymous said...
Jan 13, 2008, 2:38:00 PM  

I'm a Charger fan and there may not be a conspiracy, but that there has been atrocious officiating this half and you cannot call holding unless you absolutely see it. What an absolute shame that a terrible call destroys the integrity of this game.

Am in Roch... I am not even a Charger fan and I would love to see an Indy/NE game next week, but you are right, the officials have missed major game changing calls here and it just shouldnt be at this kind of game.

BTW, anytime they have to give fans those clapper things for a home game, thats just weak.

mw & anon:

why is a NE-Indy matchup better for the NFL than NE-SD; Peyton already got over the NE hump last year, so that angle's gone, and Peyton won the big game, so that angle's gone. the NE undefeated anlge reamins live for either matchup. OTOH, SD-NE is a rivalry that is heating up. Remember the whole "Lights Out Dance" episode, LDT and Merriman getting butt-hurt? Also, this season's matchup resulted in some pretty raw post-game emotions, as well. If I were the NFL, I'd rather see the SD-Ne matchup. Also, I think Dierdorf just explained why that holding flag was thrown.

Deirdorf: "I bet they are challenging that!"

What clued you in, Dan? The ref announcing the challenge 30 seconds before you opended you pie-hole?

corbin - or the refs could do what they're supposed to and flag Norv for 15 yards. He's been very lippy and walking out on the field all day.

Indy would be too injured to beat the Patriots right now. The Chargers are subject to Rivers' float-brain tendencies. I don't like either match-up right now.

For all the conspiracy theorists: Why was the false start not called? Well? The flinch occured before the timeout. It's a bad crew, plain and simple.

Why couldn't this be done at halftime? Jesus, Joseph, and Patrick, this is an interlude from Captain Bringdown. Way to go CBS. When the game gets exciting, slow it down and bore us to death.

Good Lord. Lots of laundry this drive, and that's a stupid penalty by Florence there. Really stupid. That's why he lost his job to Cromartie...that, and Cromartie's just plain better at football.

Why was Rivers smiling going back to the locker room if he wasnt coming back and why didnt they drive him to get him there faster?

anon, in case you've missed it, the Chargers are winning, so apparently all of Goodell's ref-fixing schemes and Polian's fellatio have gone for naught.

I say the Colts get at least one defensive holding or roughing the passer call to keep this drive alive.

Wow - way to give up the play SD.

Mal said...

Norv may have to challenge this; McCree might've pushed him out, but it looks really close. This situation, though, you have to challenge that play.

Dumb challenge, cant waste a TO because you are angry

Did anyone else catch that brief moment on the sideline with LdT and Rivers? LdT didn't look too happy about something.

Hanrahan said...

Where was the other safety on that play? And it appears that Indy is going to go after Florence in the fourth quarter...he's been thrown at a lot in the past couple series.

pm said...
Jan 13, 2008, 3:44:00 PM  

Very close on out of bounds. Manning was making hand signal to his OL to get down the field for the extra point

jgreul said...
Jan 13, 2008, 3:44:00 PM  

I dunno, richard. With that big of play, thisclose to being out of bounds, Norv almost had to challenge it.
