Forgot an "is" and it's still blowing up. When you're hot, you're hot.
I want to say I cannot believe the Chargers blew that game, but I 1,000,000% can. This is who the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers have been my entire life.
They say you can't beat the Chiefs with field goals, but you definitely can't beat them with empty possessions, something the Chargers did FOUR (4) times inside the five-yard line tonight.
I'm not some anti-analytics guy. I like the aggressiveness we've seen in the NFL the last couple of years. I think teams should go for it more on 4th and short once they pass their own 40-yard line, but I'm a bigger believer in points winning games and emotional letdowns mattering. When you have a long drive, it's better to get something on the board. Football is an emotional game, and there's a natural letdown when you come up empty on a good, long drive. You can't get mad at the Chargers defense for falling apart late. They held tough, time and time again, the Chargers continued to leave a free three points on the field.
I've gotta fucking teach kids in like eight hours, so I don't want to spend too much time talking in circles, but I cannot believe that Brandon Staley bullshit. I get he's a super aggressive coach, but Jesus Christ, dude, use your heart instead of relying on a computer one time. Even though I hate the first 4th down attempt..especially because it was 4th & goal on the five-yard line, I get it. You want momentum early; if you fail you've got KC pinned deep blah, blah, blah, but to go for it to end the half...absolutely idiotic. How do you not take the guaranteed three at the end of the first half to go up 7? I cannot wait to hear him try to weasel his way out of leaving NINE points on the field in an overtime loss. Now the Chargers playoff hopes get a lot murkier with the Vikings, Broncos, and Raiders left on their schedule; none of those games are sure wins.
Not only did I have Chargers ML +145 AND +340, but more importantly, I want the New England Patriots to win the Super Bowl. They need the bye, and a Chiefs loss would've pushed them a half-game back in the AFC standings. Now the Chiefs are gonna fuck around and win it all after this "wide open" year. Fuck Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, and Brandon Staley. I can't/can believe it. Same old Chargers, it doesn't matter where they call home. At least I went the fuck OFF in #DozVsTheDozen.
