The Chargers suffered gut-wrenching last-gasp losses in their first two games — Rosario Dawson and Hochuligate, in case you’d forgotten — so they broke out their groin-stomping boots and blew out the Jets 48-29 on Monday Night Football.
Philip Rivers continued his excellent play with another three-touchdown game (he leads the NFL with 9 TD passes), and LaDainian Tomlinson finally found the end zone, scoring twice despite being held to 67 yards on 26 carries. His longest rush was 5 yards. START DARREN SPROLES GODDAMMIT. Sorry. Anguished fantasy owner here.
On the other side of the ball, Brett Favre was Brett Favre, just slingin’ the ball and never meanin’ no harm and havin’ fun out there and pilin’ up yards and convertin’ 1 of 8 third downs and throwin’ a couple interceptions, one of which Antonio Cromartie took 52 yards the other way for a score. You know, I’m glad Favre came back this year. This post wouldn’t be nearly as much fun if I were making fun of Chad Pennington. What can I say about him? “Nice haircut, asshole”?
