Legendary coach Vince Lombardi once said, “winning is a habit. ” It is a part of a process of doing the right things repeatedly. He also said, “so is losing”. It may also be said, that losing is a part of a process of doing the wrong things repeatedly. And this past Sunday, both facts were in evidence.
The Broncos continued their winning ways by doing the things that they have been doing right all season long, mainly playing solid defense and running an offense efficiently, if unspectacularly. In contrast, the Chargers continued their losing ways by turning the ball over, playing inconsistently and showing a general lack of toughness that elite teams seem to exude.
So the outcome was not unexpected and the Chargers lost their ninth game of season, while the Broncos won their tenth. The Broncos are playing for home field advantage. The Chargers are playing for the first pick in the 2016 NFL draft.
Final Score: Manning-less Broncos – 17, Chargers – 3
I think Coach Lombardi said it the best:
“Winning is not a sometime thing; it’s an all the time thing. You don’t win once in a while; you don’t do things right once in a while; you do them right all of the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.”
Me? I just hope the Chargers select Alabama running back Derrick Henry with the first pick in the draft next year.
Well, here’s something that will cheer up some Charger fans…
Let’s start off our week 13 coverage of the Charger Girls with the Captains: Kayla, Tina, Tawnie and Katelyn.
This week’s Charger Girl of the Day is a rookie from Ladera Ranch, California…introducing Taylor.

Losing is overrated. Let me explain. Losing = low points scoring = little or no celebratory dancing = little or no celebratory dancing photos of the Charger Girls. So, if I may make a suggestion to the Chargers…more winning = more scoring = more celebratory dancing = more celebratory dancing photos of the Charger Girls, which as we all know equals more happy readers!
Next time…the Charger Girls in their sexy blue velvet Christmas uniforms! Yeah!
