Did Mike Scifres win that game for us?

    It might sound crazy, but I think Scifres may be the single biggest reason we won that game. That was the best performance by a punter I've ever seen. And in addition to his punts, he managed to scoop a really crappy snap off the turf on the game-tying field goal.

    Peyton for MVP? I say Sci-Fi for MVP.

    No argument here...every time he pinned them we got the ball back and then scored on the ensuing drive.

    Lechler can have Honolulu...we'll take Tampa thanks.

    Scifres and Sprolesy. Both were IMMENSE.

    Amazing to think that after that performance we may now have no chance of signing Darren. That will be a sad day. We were the only team in the NFL willing to give him his shot and look at him now. I say what a man what a man, my hat is off to him bigtime, as we say here, 'legend'.

    SCI-FI is un-fracking-real.

    And he definitely turns it up against the Colts.

    What won the game for the chargers was RIveras defense. And the magic or scifi and sproles. But RIveras defense set up the win.

    Scifres, Sproles, and the D (except when they fell asleep on 1 play) these 3 combined won the game!!

    GO BOLTS!

    No doubt about it! D Spoles was also a huge help. What about the D only giving up 17 points to that offense? Great game but i still am unhappy with the spike with 58 seconds left. Didnt get it but it all worked out.


    remember 1 thing......................

    VJ IS THE MAN!!!!! (But not this saturday)

    Yeah that spike was just stupid. We had a chance to win the game right there if we'd had that extra play back.

    Madden said it was the first time they've ever given the "horse trailor player of the game" to a punter

    Sci-Fi kicked *** for sure. He should have gone to the Pro Bowl over Lechler but whatever, he'll go to Tampa and kick *** breaking Superbowl punting records instead!

    The punt that went out of bounds inside the five was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen.

    Scifres was the man along with Sproles, but the play calling on offense and defense was equally impressive.

    If Cro doesn't have that brain fart and give up the bomb to Wayne they would have only scored 10 points. This has to be the best game the secondary has played all year even though they dropped at least 2 if not 3 int's. :tup:

    Yeah he was a huge part of the win. 5 times inside the 10! Just amazing, and we'll need that throughout the playoffs.

    To Madden's credit, he's always sang accolades about Sci-Fi, and is always commenting about how he gets robbed each year for a Pro Bowl nod.

    Scifres was a huge contributing factor in this win but it was a great team win. Sproles, stepped up big time, and the defense did a hell of a job in making big stops when they had to. :bolt: :tup: :icon_toast:
