Phillip Rivers Non-Douchery

The Chargers went to Denver, and upset the heavily favored Broncos. Heavily favored, that is by a sports media that doesn’t realize they have to play the games, not just talk about them.

It’s a division game and good teams compete no matter what.

Phillip Rivers, Ryan Matthews and Keenan Allen, who caught two touchdown passes tonight in San Diego’s 27-20 victory over Denver, made sure the Chargers continued competing for that #6 playoff spot. Matthews ran for 127 yards on 29 carries, while San Diego controlled the time of possession against Denver.

We are going to have to remove the Phillip Rivers douchery category after tonight’s game. Phillip Rivers is a very good quarterback. Plus the Chargers, as much as we dislike division rivals, managed to put a crimp into the coronation of Peyton Manning.

Meanwhile, real questions arise for the Broncos. Suddenly, Peyton Manning is looking somewhat human. The Broncos defense is looking suspect. And the Broncos are not looking like the sure fire Super Bowl team they were in Week Five. Of course, titles are not won in Week Five.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
