    I say the whole San Diego Chargers, even though if u had to pick 1 guy it would be Kaeding. Several players made bonehead plays during that game as well as bonehead coaching decsions and playcalling. Theres no way we shoulda lost to that team. Colts proved yest theyre not that good as long as your patient and dont panic.

    Sorry, but if there was one team that looked TOTALLY unprepared it was Romo & the Cowboys. They had their asses handed to them by Favre & the viqueens.

    I know...our bolts looked like crap too. A loss is a loss, but the Cowboys had a BEAT DOWN.

    How do you start 6-0 and not make the playoffs?

    I'm sorry, but that trumps any of the chokes we saw in the playoffs. :lol:

    Kaeding. I don't give a real crap about the rest of them. It's all about Kaeding and the Chargers letting me down for yet another year!

    Favre tossing that INT, when he could have run for the yardage was pretty zanny and in the end ironic. He screwed himself out of another Super Bowl and if he retires, his last pass thrown was an INT.

    In the end snuffing out another good Charger season was the biggest choke story, at least for me.

    In the last 5 seasons, 10 teams have started 6-0.

    All but one have made the playoffs. In fact all but one have finished as either the #1 or #2 seed.

    The 2009 Broncos are that lone exception.

    It's got to be Nate for me. How many kicks hadn't he made in a row? And the guy misses not one, not two but THREE kicks, just when his All-Proness mattered the most.

    I got to give my vote to the Broncos...what a flop they took!

    Nate gets honorable mention!

    I don't know, which would piss you off more. Kaeding missing 3 kicks or the offense committing 6 (2 inside the redzone) turnovers and barely losing it's shot at a SB?

    I think the 2nd one would piss me off more, the Vikings clearly outclassed the Saints and probably could have beaten the Colts.

    The difference is, The Chargers lost to a far inferior team. The Vikings didn't

    Doesn't really matter, it'd be like the Pats loss in 2006 but worse because the game was for the SB (the Pats game wasn't).

    And I don't think the Jets were that inferior, they had a good ground game and a good defense. The defense kept it close and they got the breaks. Sanchez did a good job of not making mistakes. They were also lucky to have both the Bengals and Chargers miss FGs though, but as they say it's better to be lucky than good.

    Wow. You guys have mellowed...no mention of Brady, Belichick, or the Patriots.:tup:

    I personally believe, and I am biased as hell, Belichick made the biggest blunder trading away the entire Patriots Pro-Bowl defense, and IMO, asking both Harrison and Bruschi to retire (I have no real basis for making the statement about Rodney and Tedy).

    Biggest choke in the playoffs has been the Chargers.

    I think they were far inferior. The Chargers choked and gave that game away by the Offense sucking all day(Thanks Norv for the Marty like play calling). The Jets D didn't do anything to keep the Chargers from winning, the Charger blew that game

    Revis had River's number. Only four passes in his direction...one overthrow, one drop, one interception, and one minus four yard completion to LT.

    Was Rivers intimidated? They played man defense on Revis' side of the D, and they played zone on the other side.

    That INT was the luckiest INT in the history of man kind.

    Jackson bobbled the ball, it bounced off his foot, then bounced off his stomach, then fell into the unsuspecting chest of Revis who was on his back getting a tan.

    Somehere in there is a point. :tup:

    Perhaps Rivers should have thrown more in his direction.

    The luckiest interception in the history of mankind occurred at the end of the Packers-Cardinals game.

    Perhaps he should have, but I wasn't really responding to your point moreso just using your post as a springboard to ***** about that lucky INT.

    I disagree. At least in that case the defender did something to cause the INT...even if there was a penalty in the process that wasn't called.

    Revis was literally just laying on his back while the ball bounced all over VJ (keeping it off the ground) and then fell into his unsuspecting chest.

    You could tell by Revis' response that he was shocked to wind up with the ball.

    Heads up play on his part to get up and run with it, but getting the ball was sheer luck.

    Eh why pass towards Revis if you don't have to? Pretty sure Peyton didn't throw to his side much either.
