Guess the fellow wearing No. 21 who couldn't be trusted to run with the football was Impostor Tomlinson – IT – so he just tailgated for a good part of the game, chatting with neighbors, noshing on scones, sipping cafe lattes. </font>

    <font class="newstext">And then there was quarterback Philip Rivers. With the Chargers refusing to run the ball after some brief early success, you would have thought the team's offensive brains would have exploited the Browns, forced to start second-and third-string cornerbacks. But they didn't – or couldn't – take advantage of it early. And Rivers wasn't himself, either. If we're talking rhythm, he wasn't Astaire.</font>

    <font class="newstext"> Just what San Diego was trying to do offensively in yesterday's first half against Cleveland probably can be better explained by analysts on ESPN-Vatican. It wasn't good. Special teams were awful. The defense, banged up and missing two potential Pro Bowl linebackers, scrambled and did itself proud to hold the Browns to four first-half field goals.</font>
