Ryan Pedersen: Chargers Conquer Mt. Olympus
The San Diego Chargers defeated the Tennessee Titans 38-10 in week two of this NFL season as “White Hot Sunday” took over the “Q” by a stellar Seau-like defensive performance.
The same day the Chargers organization retired the number “55” that was Junior Seau’s number for over a decade. Seau lost his life to a self-inflicted gunshot this past May. The Seau family was in attendance and former Charger QB Dan Fouts spoke at the pre game ceremony, then an unveiling of the third retired number ever in Chargers history.
Man, I hope you started Dante Rosario and Jackie Battle Sunday in your fantasy leagues (c’mon really?) both combined had five TD’s for the Bolts and three just from Rosario (Hadn’t caught a TD pass since 2009). Another good game from Philip Rivers, Malcom Floyd and the defense gave Titans QB Jack Locker fits all day long.
In the first time ever in the Norv Turner Era, the Chargers are 2-0 as well as the first time since 2006. A.J. Smith is now the franchise leader in wins as a General Manager (sorry to all the haters of the tenure, hard to believe right?) The Chargers will need a full and some what healthy arsenal as the “Dirty Birds” aka Mo Lawler and The Atlanta Falcons flock into town this coming Sunday after embarrassing Peyton Manning Monday night. Should be a good one (assuming it will be televised locally, SMH)
Everybody Wang Chung,
