WHAT? HUH? WHAT? DEUX DEUX DEUX DANGER DANGER CHRIS BERMAN BROADCASTING DANGER DANGER After a riveting Ravens blowout, we head westward for the annual Chargers vs. Other West Coast Team Doubleheader Special, which a national audience have to interpret through mute. This will be fresh hell on your hearing otherwise. Compelling storylines abound: Ronnie Brown or Darren McFadden – who will destroy their Achilles first? How will Marmalard fare with his new cache of unremarkable receivers? Can Norval be fired in the middle of a play? Will Twitter be overrun with sportswriters complaining that this game is just so unbearably late for their New York deadlines? Mostly, I’m looking for two first half Carson Palmer interceptions, with the life draining from the eyes of Raiders fans. The post Chargers-Raiders Live Blog – First Half appeared first on Kissing Suzy Kolber.

Oakland Raiders Loss: Karmic Retribution?

I already covered this game, but I recently learned something about NFL history.On September 10, 1978, the Raiders won a game against the Chargers in the most amazing manner-- an offensive fumble recovery for a touchdown.Even back then, NFL rules limited forward passes to once per play and only from behind the line of scrimmage.  If the ball hit the ground, it was considered incomplete...
