I don’t know why I’m wasting time recapping this, but the Chargers beat the tar out of the Raiders last night 34-7. JaMarcus Russell was horrible, even by JaMarcus Russell standards: 68 yards passing, two interceptions, and a lost fumble. Andrew Walter replaced him and was horrible, even by Andrew Walter standards. The only reason the Raiders had a touchdown was because their special teams came through with a return.
As for the Chargers, they actually looked like the team they were supposed to be this year, getting big games from Philip Rivers, LT2, Darren Sproles, and Vincent Jackson. They’re now 5-8, and delusional fans are allowed to think that they still have a shot to win the pathetic AFC West.
All in all, another rousing success for the NFL Network. Bummer it’s not part of my cable package. I think I’ll put off that angry call to Time Warner for another week.
