It’s been a tough week in the neighborhood. My Broncos, Bill down the street’s Cowboys and Jamo’s Steelers all went down this weekend. I was messing with Monster Truck Jamo during and after the Steelers game via text messaging, and all he could do is sulk. NOW that’s funny stuff.
None of the games were though, penalties, turnovers, and T.O.P., special teams, you name it. No excuses, just poor playing against a now 2-6 49ers Team. Tough week. Tougher flight back. Tougher bye-week. We played at Wembley back in the 80′s. It was a weird place, a soccer field, and folks stood up behind these bars in the stands like a corral. They liked their beer warm and we went in early and practiced against the Rams in Preseason, so we could hit new guys versus ourselves. We visited a few places since we had some down time, odd clubs, old everything, interesting history, but I was glad to get back.
Has anyone looked at the standings NFL-wide? Nobody’s lighting it up, and did you see the Steelers-Saints game last night. That’s the way the game’s suppose to be played… wide open 100 miles an hour, in your face football. We gotta get back to that here.
ChargerHater0315 mentioned dog-bone chomping in the camera late in the week and I mentioned that was me after that AFC Championship game because I was pissed from being hit all game with apples, batteries and dog bones. Alex Gibbs, our O-line coach, was hit in the head with Jack Daniels bottle after the game thrown from the stands. P.S. chargerhater0315, Greeley was a cool town to practice in, great people and wonderful fans.
Well, it’s the bye week and I’m kinda glad. Hopefully we can regroup a little, heal up a little and get ready for KC, who’s playing pretty well right now.
