    it was the same situation but it cost the Donkeys the game.

    It's hosted at Qualcomm, Culter throws an interception that really wasn't, Shanahan challenges the call, we are told that the equipment isn't working so the call stands.

    Chargers offense in on the field in the same situation. Rivers fumbles... same situation, same call, same result.

    End result: Chargers win 39-38


    Would the NFL media be defending the Donkeys with more strength?
    I say "yes."

    I think they have doing as much as they would for any team. Let's not lose too much prespective here.

    Absolutely. Everyone knows that the media loves the Rat a ton more than they love Norv. And Cutler is their love child, while Rivers is portrayed as some kind of slack jawed trash talker who only wins because he has good weapons around him. The result would absolutely be different.

    It would be exactly the same coverage - maybe even worse (better?). Bolts have been the media darlings for several years now.

    How so?
    We weren't suppose to stand a chance in Hell against the Colts last season. All you heard was "Who's afraid of Phillip Rivers?"

    Picking us as the underdogs against the Patriots was one thing since they were undefeated.

    Now I do agree that the media loves LT but he earned it!!!
    Please explain how we've been the media darlings.

    Really? Umm what have you been watching. Some experts put us to lose to the titans last year in the playoffs. Other expert(s) predicted the chargers to get blown out by the colts 48-7 last year. Somehow Rivers has had better games than both Peyton and Brett farve and the media still give rivers no love. Your crybaby blew the game and rivers should of won the battle that same instant, it just so happens that the ref got a really really good ******* by the rat before the game and decided to call a blind throw. Yet the media still blows up on how shanahan is the forth coach to go for 2 and blah blah blah.

    Also, don't forget how Cutler is the next Elway after just two very good games against very bad defenses.

    Horse Cutlet threw a red zone interception on one late 4th Quarter series with the game on the line, and then fumbled to Dobbins on the next one but the referees just would not allow him to lose this game, so Ed Hochuli and the rest of the officiating crew made damned sure that he didn't.

    They won't be able to save his *** next time, because everybody's watching them all now. :tdown:

    If it set itself on fire for the pokes, I'd refuse to pee on them.

    For starters, it would have been 24-38 because the extra 15 points came from the blown calls. :icon_toast:

    I think we ought to blow these media guys off. I've quit watching them for the most part, accept for some of the pregame shows. Better information out of web sites and regular newspapers.
