There was a time where I used to say that Super Bowl Sunday was the greatest day of the year.  But that was before the Chargers started making the playoffs.  Once they did, but were unable to do anything with it, Super Sunday stopped being special.  It became a day that reminded me of everything that the Bolts were lacking.  Now we’re coming off three straight seasons of not even getting into the playoffs.  I can’t help but think about that Thursday Night game against the Niners in 2010.  Remember when Charger fans booed Vernon Davis because he intimated that he was better than Antonio Gates?  That was also the game where Alex Smith confessed to being a huge fan of the '94 Bolts.  You know, I like Alex Smith and not just because of that admission.  I actually believe that he will continue his improvement.  I don't think that reuniting with Norv in Cleveland will be good for him, but I would actually be a little worried if he ends up in Kansas City.  That's also a reflection of the lack of confidence that I have in our quarterback right now.  It might seem shocking to be singing the praises of Alex Smith while simultaneously worrying about the future of Philip Rivers.  It would have been close to unthinkable in 2010. I remember Marty Caswell tweeting from the sidelines about what a mess San Fran was that night.  There was a heavy suggestion that Mike Singeltary had no control of his team.  Now look at them.  Maybe we should have paid closer attention to Harbaugh when he was in San Diego.  He played well enough in 1999 that I temporarily forgot about the Wild Card loss to Indy at home.  Who knows what future coaching geniuses are carrying clipboards for the Bolts?  Could Dave Dickenson be next?  If that name means something to you, you're in the right place. How many times do you think it will be mentioned on Sunday that the Niners were last in the Super Bowl against the Chargers?  How many times do you think we'll have to be reminded that Super Bowl XXIX was won by San Francisco by a score of 49-26?  I bet it will be referenced more than the fact that Carmen Policy make a mockery of the salary cap to assemble that team.  Yeah, I'm still more than a little peeved.  Remember that I had to watch that one in person. Anyway, I'll talk to you after Sunday. JIC, RLW
