I wish I could've found a photo of Peyton Manning literally being thrown aside by the Chargers on the run-back of an interception during their 28-24 victory at the RCA Dome today. That image would be a perfect summation of the game those two teams played, to say nothing of the personal satisfaction it holds for me.
Instead, I'll have to settle for the image above of Randy Moss's playoff press conference ensemble this week, which tops last week's outfit, despite the fact that I did not think such a thing possible.
Sort of like how, just when you think the Patriots can't get any better, they go out and switch from a high-flying passing offense to a balanced passing-running attack, and do the equivalent on the defensive side despite being rated near the bottom of the league in yards allowed per carry during the regular season.
It's all because of the Jedi mind-control Bill Belichick has over his players, clearly (except when it comes to their press-conference outfits, of course). You can read more about my armchair theories on that front, and find out what part a home-made sledgehammer played in yesterday's contest, over here.
In the meantime, I'd like to take this space to gloat about the Chargers' victory just a little more.You know what my favorite part was? The part where Peyton Manning was sitting on the bench (again, some more) and the CBS cameras zoomed way in on his Peyton Manning Face, and lingered there while his jaw muscle twitched. And then Dan Dierdorf said, "Boy, look at his jaw muscle twitching!" And I laughed. Because I am a bitter, vindictivie Patriots fan, and seeing the Postseason Peyton Manning Face is one of my greatest joys in life.
