Give me a break – San Diego edition

Here we go again… and I’m not talking about the Patriots playing in another AFC Championship.

“When you go to the middle of our field and start doing the dance Shawne Merriman is known for, that is disrespectful. They showed no class and maybe that comes from the head coach,” said running back LaDainian Tomlinson. From what I saw, it looked like one player, James Sanders, was dancing in the field. That makes the entire team classless? Isn’t it worse when Merriman is doing said dance in the face of the player he just clobbered?

Shaun Phillips says he will never forget. Are you kidding me?

It’s the same old story… the Patriots beat a team that was HEAVILY favored and that team begins with all the post-game bullshit. The Raiders, to this day, believe we cheated our way to the AFC Championship in January 2002. The Colts bitched and moaned so much about our game that the play of all NFL defensive backs was changed with the new enforcement of the illegal contact rule. Here we go again… now the Patriots are classless. What’s the old saying… don’t confuse jealously with hatred?

I spent some time this morning trolling the message boards of the San Diego Union-Tribune. Much was nice, respectful, and classy. There were even Patriots fans there making nice comments and there was a discussion about how the Manning brothers suck (remember Eli’s order to San Diego to not draft him?)…

Listen, San Diego is more talented, more successful this season, more balanced… none of it matters at all. Statistics are for losers. Now, having beaten what I consider to be the best team in the NFL, I don’t see the Patriots losing to Indianapolis. Nope. I don’t see it.


Woah, Patriots beat Chargers 24-21

    Angela, I got love for ya, but the Tuck Rule Sucks! OK, I admit my Raiders failed to stop the Pats after that call, but that rule is totally lame.
    Anyways, on to the present, I’m cheering for a Bears-Pats SB XX rematch. 🙂

    Yeah, the tuck rule sucks but the Patriots didn’t concoct that rule for the game. I’m cheering for a SB rematch. You know, we’ve been saying this for years and I think this year is the closest we’ve come to actually having a rematch.

  3. LT’s whine totally cracked me up…what a classy individual he turned out to be

  4. Someone needs to tell Jimbo that da Bears ain’t going to the Super Bowl.

  5. Jon

    Well someone had to do the “dance” since Merriman didn’t get too.

  6. Maybe some of the Chargers players should have kept their mouths shut BEFORE the game… Another team that just expected the Lombardi trophy would be handed to them, another team sitting on the couch watching The Pats move on.

    You DID cheat your way to the Championship in 2002! The Raiders should of won that game but they got screwed by the Refs obviously Patriot fans!

  8. 1976 Raiders – Roughing the passer = Incorrect call made by *admittedly* biased Raider Fan referee.

    2001 Patriots – Tuck rule = Correct call made by completely unbiased referee.

    Was my ol’ pal Becca prematurely trumpeting the arrival of those NO they ‘aints??? 😉

  10. HAHA! NO they ‘aints!

    I have FAITH that the ‘Aints can win… because da Bears have just playing gross…man…

    I say, it doesn’t matter who wins the NFC… the AFC rules! Oh yeah. 😉
