You Can’t Let Go ‘Cause You’re Afraid To Fall

I think it’s safe to say that no one was pleased with how the Chargers played on Sunday. But at least we didn’t lose. I’m sure Kansas City would trade our performance for theirs last night if it resulted in a win. Like many Justice Leaguers, I ended up watching that game and having to root for Oakland. It sucks, I know. I also watched a fair amount of Monday’s game, which...

Fantasy Football Week 11 Player Rankings: Is Ryan Mathews a Top 15 RB?

Mathews is slated to return in Week 11 from a 9-week absence after a knee injury in Week 2 Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 10

If you had told me that by this point in the season I would be licking my wounds from a 3 week losing streak I would have laughed in your face. A 3 game losing streak for me is about as improbable as the Arizona Cardinals having the best record in the NFL.

Your Gravity Fails And Negativity Don’t Pull You Through

I don’t know if the long space between games helped the Chargers, but I know that I needed it. Can you believe that a Broncos fan got lost at our last game? Is it safe to make a joke about it yet? Anyway, I’m a little less raw from the loss at Denver. However, Sunday’s game is no less important. As soon as we lost to KC, I Tweeted that someone would start panicking that we’d...
