No Such Nonsense

A little of this, that and... what was I talking about again? It's TV, sports, pop culture and politics - all the stuff that really matters in life.

Monday Morning Moment

The single best highlight of Sunday's games:

San Diego's fans chanting "Marty, Marty" in the dying minutes of a 30-16 loss to Kansas City.

You remember Marty, don't you? That'd be Marty Schottenheimer - the guy who led the Chargers to a 14-2 regular season record last season, before getting fired for his alleged inability to win the big game. You see, the Chargers went out to the Patriots in their first play-off game last year. This year, under 'new' coach Norv Turner, San Diego has lost 3 of 4.

It's as if GM A.J. Smith forgot that to win in the playoffs you have to, you know, make the playoffs. Like he didn't look around the league and see that coaches like Andy Reid and Tony Dungy have taken a few years to translate regular season success to a Superbowl. Like he let his own ego drive his decisions.

Turns out, Norv Turner is no Marty Schottenheimer.
