The highlight of yesterday’s Bucs-Chargers game — aside from the fact that it gives us a Philip Rivers-Jay Cutler battle royale for the AFC West next week — was Jeff Garcia opting not to slide after a scramble, and paying for it by getting Quentin Jammer’s shoulder planted into his helmet (video and more pictures after the jump).
I admit, I saw this and I was like, “Sweet! There’s blood on his face.” But the commentators really went crazy for it. They were so excited it was like a couple tiger sharks were calling the game. “GRRRR that’s some old-timey football!!!” Please, it’s just a nosebleed. I get those all the time when the pressure changes, and you don’t hear anyone calling me gritty.
