NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Chargers 23, Colts 17 (OT)

Colts Chargers Football

So let me get this straight: a 12-4 team is forced to go on the road against an 8-8 team, a midget runs for like 330 all-purpose yards, and a coin bounces the wrong direction. And now the season is over.

By the way, can I get a punt to actually bounce once it hits the ground? If not, how about a grounding call? Some leniency with the holding calls down the stretch perhaps? No? Maybe just a coin to bounce the right way then?

Whoever decided that sudden death was a good way to determine the winner of a football game in overtime needs to be taken out to a field, tarred and feathered.

Sheesh. These guys are becoming our new arch nemesis.

We certainly had our chances though, thanks to two big red zone turnovers by San Diego and a somewhat fluky touchdown pass from Manning to Wayne in the third quarter. This one could have been, and probably should have been, much worse. And I remember a time that if you were lucky enough to have a 17-14 lead, the ball, and Peyton Manning as your QB with 2:30 left in the game, that meant that the game was over. I suppose that time has past.
