The Chargers Ground the Jets

Everyone who plays fantasy football knows that you need a good quarterback. He’s the most important player on your team because of the impact that he…one player…can have on your future success. If you want to win a Championship, you need an elite quarterback, one that can actually win your fantasy match up on his own…a difference maker.

Real football is a lot like fantasy football. If you don’t have a serviceable quarterback, you can’t move the ball. And if you can’t move the ball, you can’t score. And if you can’t score, you can’t win.

For the most important position on the field, you need a guy that can influence the outcome of the game, a winner. And the Jets don’t have one…yet. And that’s why this past Sunday, the Chargers held the Jets to 151 total net yards in route to a 31 – 0 slaughter.

In a stark contrast, the Chargers have a serviceable quarterback…a good quarterback…a former league leading quarterback in Philip Rivers. And he was able to move the ball at will with a group of journeymen receivers and an undrafted rookie running back as his supporting cast. Rivers threw for 288 yards and three touchdowns against a team with a fairly decent defense. This is what a good quarterback can do for you.

Final Score – Well you know that already.

Fantasy football doesn’t have cheerleaders, but if they did…you have to have a squad like the Charger Girls…difference makers!

You know it’s going to be hot when you look outside and it’s like the world is overexposed by two stops.

I heard a rumor that Fall is finally here, but you wouldn’t know it in Southern California. It’s still Summer and it was another scorcher Sunday, 100 degrees on the field.  I can’t help but wonder if the hot temperatures affected the play of the Jets, like it did the Seahawks a few weeks ago. I mean, the Chargers can’t be this good…can they?

Oh well…as is custom around here, we begin this week’s coverage with Captains: Angela M., Natalie, Katelyn, and Clarisse.

The halftime entertainment was provided by the San Diego State University Marching Band and they have a dance team that, in the past, has provided more than a few Charger Girls. So I thought I would showcase a few SDSU dance team members who I think may make a nice addition or two to the Charger Girls in a few years.

They must have been dying wearing all black uniforms, but they looked hot…uh, good.

Last week, I posted that until the Jets find a quarterback that I was going to chalk this one up in the “W” column. I guess I wasn’t too far off the mark. There are very few teams that can compete at a high level without an elite quarterback and those that did had an elite defense. The last one that comes to mind was the 2002 Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers with Brad Johnson at the helm and I don’t think the Jets have a QB on par with him. So I guess they have a ways to go to…but that’s the nature of professional football…if you are not winning, you are rebuilding.

As for the Chargers, I am not so sure they are an elite team yet, but they just keep winning. And for now, that’s all that matters. Just win, baby!
