Bring On The San Diego Raiders

I am a lifelong fan of the San Diego Chargers.

Save your pity. Your groans of sympathy. Your attempts at jokes about how much the NFL sucks and doesn’t care about its fans. I don’t want any of it because fuck the Chargers. It’s time to be all about the future.

Chargers fans have been given a unique opportunity to honorably escape a franchise that has as little chance of success as the Cleveland Browns. We, the fans and the city of San Diego, should under no circumstances let it pass. And by “it,” I mean the Los Angeles Oakland Raiders.

First, a moment of reflection on the Chargers’ history to explain how I, a Chargers fan, would ever want the team’s blood rival as my new team.

On Sunday, the Carolina Panthers bulldozed over the Arizona Cardinals as Cam Newton tossed two touchdowns and ran for two more scores in a 49-15 beat down for the NFC championship.

Newton finished the contest with 335 yards through the air and finished the game with an 117.4 passer rating, he also finished the game with 47 yards on the ground and is looking more and more like a lock to be the league’s MVP.

However, the season could have gone in an entirely different direction.

Gary Kubiak gets his revenge on Belichick’s Patriots

    DENVER, CO - AUGUST 29: Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak wasn't happy when the team had to call a timeout on defense in the second quarter of the preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Thursday, September 3, 2015.

In his first year as head coach of the Denver Broncos, Gary Kubiak has led his team to a Super Bowl berth as his Broncos are headed to Santa Clara for Super Bowl 50.

In a tight, hard-fought game, Kubiak’s team defeated Bill Belichick and the Patriots 20-18 in what I’m sure was sweet revenge for both Kubiak and the Broncos.

Cris Cyborg hilariously trolls Ronda Rousey on Twitter

    Ronda Rousey

The ongoing fiery feud between Ronda Rousey and Cris “Cyborg” Justino had some gasoline dumped on it Saturday night, as Cyborg simply couldn’t resist the perfect chance to troll her eternal nemesis with Rousey hosting Saturday Night Live.

Rousey suffered her first professional loss against Holly Holm in November after being unable to dictate the fight using her stellar ground game, and thus having her lackluster stand-up skills badly exposed by Holm’s elite striking.

Anyway, it turns out a certain someone was sitting at home watching Rousey host SNL, probably with a bowl of popcorn and the perfect buzz that brings one’s humor to maximum wittiness.

On Wednesday, the Buffalo Bills hired Kathryn Smith as the league’s first full-time female coach, and almost instantly critics voiced their opinion.

Kevin Kiley, a radio host in Cleveland, was the most notable voice of opposition, as he knocked the Bills decision to hire Smith on-air Thursday morning.

“Kaitlyn or Kathryn or whatever her name is,” Kiley said. “She’s been hired as a, this is absurd by the way, she’s been hired as a quality control coach.”

He didn’t stop there.

Andrew Holbrook pulls out of UFC on Fox 18 match vs. Sage Northcutt

    Andrew Holbrook

Attaining success at the highest levels of mixed martial arts obviously takes immeasurable dedication and sacrifice. After pouring years of blood, sweat and tears into the sport, it’s always heartbreaking to see a fighter miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime due to injury. Unfortunately, such is the case for UFC lightweight contender Andrew Holbrook.

Citing injury, the UFC announced Friday that Holbrook (11-0) is off the UFC on Fox 18 card, which would have been by far the biggest fight of his career against stud prospect Sage Northcutt. Luckily for Northcutt, Dana White and co. quickly found a solution, simultaneously announcing that Northcutt (7-0) will move up a weight class to face welterweight Bryan Barberena (10-3) on short notice at the Jan. 30 event in Newark, New Jersey.

Jared Allen is Not Happy to be Sitting Out NFC Title Game

January 22, 2016 – 6:25 pm by Will DeWitt

We’re only two days away from the NFC Championship, and although his team has a chance to advance to Super Bowl 50, Jared Allen is disgruntled.

On Friday, the Panthers notified Allen that he will sit out this week’s NFC Championship, and Allen is displeased with the decision as he feels healthy enough to play come Sunday after breaking a bone in his foot last week.

“Not happy, plain and simple,” Allen said. “I’m ready to rock. Coach’s decision gotta live with it.”

Allen, who is in his 12th season and has yet to reach the Super Bowl, will have to watch from the sidelines to find out if he will be going to the big dance.

Ed Hochuli Officiating AFC Championship Bodes Well for Broncos

Earlier this week, it was reported that Ed Hochuli will be the head official for the AFC Championship this Sunday, and the news should have John Elway licking his chops.

Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald shed some light on why this could end up being a nightmare scenario for New England:

According to Pro Football Reference, the Patriots are 10-9 ( only 5-6 on the road) in games Hochuli has refereed. Furthermore, it appears Hochuli might have a bias towards the home team as out of his 237 called penalties this season, only 109 were called on the home team (46 percent). Home teams have won 68.8 percent of the games he has officiated, which is 15 percent above the league average (53.8 percent).
