    Here they are:

    Shawne Merriman, claiming a Titans player illegally hit him, told the U-T: "There were a bunch of cheap shots out there, but they can get some cheap seats on the sofa at home while they watch us [in the playoffs]." Oh, snap!

    They have had plenty of issues this season, but that comeback against the Titans might be just what this team needs. Philip Rivers must play like he did in the fourth quarter for the Chargers to have a Super chance.

    Shawne Merriman got a good hit on Vince Young and knocked him out of action for a while. Then Titans' tight end Ben Hartsock took a shot at Merriman, who limped off the field on a damaged left knee. Revenge hit, said the Chargers afterward. Jeff Fisher ordered it. Now I'm not taking sides in this issue, but if I were the prosecuting attorney, representing the plaintiff Chargers, I'd put Fisher on the stand, and my first question would be, "Now who was your coach again, when you played for the Bears?" "Buddy Ryan," he would say. "The prosecution rests it's case," I'd say.

    The Chargers rallied from a 14-point, fourth-quarter deficit to earn a 23-17 victory against the Titans in overtime. The gritty win was San Diego's third straight victory and seventh in nine games. For all the negativity surrounding the Chargers this season, they're suddenly 8-5 and in position for a division title and first-round home playoff game. Norv Turner's caught a lot of slack this year. But hey, San Diego's undoubtedly one of the hottest teams in the league.

    Someone needs to let this writer know that people are "cut slack", meaning they are given some rope, and people "catch flack", meaning they are under fire. He has his phrases mixed up.

    A good hit? Yet another media ******* completely mischaracterizing the play.

    Considering how empty headed these guys are most of the time, their power rankings are worth about as much as the polling on the Iowa Caucuses.

    :icon_rofl: There's RC - putting it into perspective again! :icon_tease:

    As much as we ***** about these guys on their other takes, why would we care about their power rankings?? :icon_shrug:

    They're all polishing Brady's knob - what else is there to know?
