SNF Live-Blog: Patriots @ Chargers, Pre-Game

Sunday, October 12, 2008

This is not the face of the man that NBC was likely expecting to see at quarterback when the network scheduled this game. Of course, they weren't expecting the Chargers to be 2-4 either. However, this game shouldn't be too bad. I can think of worse contests to have lined up.

Things we're learning from the late games:

  • That whole Denver being good on defense was a one-week deal only, good against Tampa Bay. Jacksonville is tearing them up and three turnovers by the Broncos haven't helped matters.
  • Andy Reid is a bonehead. Who kicks the long field goal instead of taking a knee when you're up just before half? Karma bitchslaps the Eagles as the Niners took that blocked FG to the house and they took a solid lead into the 4th. Mike Nolan is equally dumb by challenging a field goal.
  • If you bet Arizona, thinking Dallas was treating it as a trap game (I did!), you look really good right now. Arizona's up by 7.
  • The Pack is ahead and driving on Seattle -- a team continuing to prove its worthlessness on a weekly basis.
Keep the faith by keeping track of Costas & Co. during the pre-game, and this here live-blog will really get underway at 8:15 Eastern.


Sorry S2N, but I'm going to be watching my Phillies in Game 3 of the NLCS. I'll check in during commercials and post anything I see as humerous (which knowing Al and John, there will be many)

KO has strep throat, apparently.

Many of you are likely cheering.

They just said on NFLN that the Cardinals blocked punt for TD was first time a game had been decided in OT that way

I hope that Olbermann's strep throat is the first case in history that is permanent.
