I think this part here is where you'd make your money. By and large people in general don't know a whole lot about football. Not saying that I know more than anyone else out there, but, I did play college ball and I was on the staff (DC & AHFC) one of the more successful HS football teams in San Diego for 12 years. What I see often times are people that want SO badly for their team to do well, that their "fandom" (is that a word, even?) blinds them.
Sure, I'm a fan of the Chargers, have been ever since I can remember... I recall sitting in the livingroom watching Fouts, Muncie, Joiner, Winslow, Jefferson, Lowe and all those guys break my heart... but, I'm also a realist. Being that the Chargers were as banged up as they were, I didn't really think they had much of a shot. A lot... and I mean A LOT had to happen today for the Chargers to win. They had a few chances, but, they didn't capitalize on them today... and we found out, as did the Jags, that you can't beat the Pats kicking FG's.
Anyways.. back to the point of the thread. You're going to find internet badasses and know it alls on every board, so to presume that ALL Chargerfans are being represented by those that post to a board... well, it'd be akin to a foreigner thinking we're all backwards assed dipshytes just because of who our President is.
Anyways... Congrats on a well-earned victory today, Patsfan. I do indeed hope your boys go on and keep the Lombardi in the AFC!
