The Chargers have been playing uncharacteristically of late. Their usually high powered offense has sputtered all season long and their usually stout defense has been rather pedestrian in the first three games, making it hard to imagine that the Chargers actually led the NFL in offense and defense last year. But going in this week’s game, the Chargers are 2-1 and that is also uncharacteristic for the historically slow starting team.
With the Dolphins coming into town on Sunday, the Chargers hoped to reignite their sputtering offense against the win less cetaceans. Unfortunately, hopes for a touchdown explosion fizzled to a field goal kicking contest with the Chargers winning four field goals to three for the Dolphins. Final score, Chargers 26 – Dolphins 16.
The Chargers have a ways to go to be considered a good team, but with the win the Boys in Blue lead the AFC West Division by one game over the Raiders. At least that is something to smile about.
And another thing that brings a smile to my face…the absolutely fabulous Charger Girls!
As is customary in these game day reports, we begin our weekly coverage of the Charger Girls by featuring the Line Captains: Katie, Tiffany, Natalie and Lauren O.
This week’s Charger Girl of the Day was a very difficult decision. I had two Charger Girls that gave me a series of great photos and I had a dilemma. I couldn’t decide which photo, let a alone which set of photos, was the best of the day. I thought and thought. I reviewed photo after photo. An in the end, I struggled to come to a decision. So this week, we have a rarity and we honor two girls with Charger Girl of the Day. Leading off is Nina, followed by Lauren P.
And here’s CGOTD Lauren P.
You may have notice something different this week. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to support the NFL’s efforts, the Charger Girls cheered with pink pom poms to draw attention to the cause. Last year, the Charger Girls donned bright pink jackets on what was a warm day. This past Sunday, the weather was absolutely hot with temperatures on the field in the high 80’s. So, I would imagine opting for the pink pom poms instead of the pink jackets was a good idea….much cooler and a more subtle way honor the event.
Let’s begin our coverage of the Charger Girls with: Anjelica, Ariel, Clarisse, Culture, Emily, Hayley, Lauren P., and Marissa.
We continue our coverage with Melissa, Nina, Starkesha, Tawnie, Nicole, Kimberly, Katelyn, and Kara.
We conclude our coverage with Jennifer, Jackie, Hannah, Aussie Emma, Courtney, Christie, Angela, and Alexis.
And I saw a couple of Charger Girls from last year serving as coordinators this week. Here’s a photo of Jessie and Amanda, both of whom were rocking three inch high heels that made them look like giant Charger Girl coordinators.
I don’t seem to recall Amanda and Jessie as being that tall…they were taller than some of the cornerbacks on the field. I’m not complaining mind you.
With the win, the Charger improve to 3 -1, but the toughest games on the schedule are yet to be played. They are going to have play better to hope to keep pace with the top teams in the NFL. If they don’t…well, we’ll always have the Charger Girls to look forward to.
