1-Man’s Opinion on Sports-Monday “Kid QB-KOs-Eagles

Kid QB-KO-Eagles”——-

Nothing wrong with Chargers QB-Justin Herbert.
Lots wrong with other part of the Bolts (5-3) football team.

You tell me, when was the last time you saw that type of productiving coming out tof a Chargers quarterback?  Maybe the Dan Fouts era.

As Chargers beat writers and the network TV guys wrote and spoke “What’s wrong with Justin Herbert”, he answered “absolutely nothing: That scoreboard read (27-24) Bolts win in Eagles-town.

Some Sunday outing in Philadelphia.  Eagles fans were so stunned at what they were seeing they did not have time to boo their own team.

Herbert was (32-for-38, 356-yards, 2TD passes, 1-TD rushing and for good measure he crashed in for two first downs on QB sneaks. Oh by the way, there were 2-dropped passes, so he could have gone 34-for-38.

Not even sure we ever saw that from Hall of Famer Dan Fouts..or the legendary Philip Rivers

The play calling was much better on Sunday compared to the past two weeks.  The Chargers had 9-different players catch passes, everybody but my Golden Retriever.

Not much of a running game, but they won
Not much help from leaky RT-Storm Norton who is somehow still employed.
Not much from the run defense that was gashed for 176-yards rushing by the Eagles.

Don’t understand the whole play-calling recipe of first year Nick Sirianni, electing not to go after a battered Chargers secondary.  By the 4th quarter, the Bolts were down 4-DBs with injuries, and Chris Harris is still chasing Heisman Trophy winning receiver Davontae Smith.  Yet the Eagles did not go into attack mode late in the game.

It only counts as one win, but it answers ‘nothing wrong’ with Hollywood Herbert.  Now they come home to face the reeling Minnesota Vikings next weekend and a chance to push this record to (6-3)

Around the AFC West, it was a strange day.

The Raiders QB-Derek Carr is not bulletproof.  3-turnovers in a surprisingly poor outing for them  losing to the woeful NY Giants.  The loss of big play WR-Henry Rugg, coming weeks after the Jon Gruden ouster-firing, has put alot on Carr’s shoulders in terms of leadership.  But this was a shocker.

Kansas City continues to play poor football.  The explosiveness seems gone from Patrick Mahomes offense.  The defense is still weak.  And they were nothing special against the Aaron Rodgers-less Packers.  Imagine if AR, with the chip on his shoulder, have played.
Somebody at Arrowhead Stadium should be concerned.  The Chiefs might not be a playoff team.

In Denver, they spent all week wondering whether Vic Fangio was worth keeping as head coach?  And whether Teddy Bridgewater could stay healthy?  Or if the team would emotionally crater after the Von Miller trade?  Then the Broncos went out an blitzed the Cowboys, leading at 1-point (30-0) in the game, to stop the bleeding in the Mile High City.

Half a season of football left now for the guys in the AFC West.

All is alright with the Chargers quarterback.  The rest of the division seems to have red-flags lots of places.

The Kid-QB-KOed the Eagles.
