I hope we lose HARD tonight.

I hope we lose to the Chargers. Big time. Just about all the teams that go 3-1 in the preseason have amazing regular seasons. I know this is seriously mind boggling stuff but hear me out, here. Think back to the preseason of 2008, and try to think about the teams that went 3-1. I’ll tell you so you don’t have to: The Tennessee Titans, that’s who. Guess what their regular season record was. 13-3! Okay, so you may be telling yourself “Pshh. That’s a fluke obviously”. Well you may be wrong or right, but hear me out again. Who won the Super Bowl in 2008? You guessed it, the Pittsburgh Steelers. Do you want to guess what their preseason record was? I don’t think it needs to be said, because it was 3-1.


Let me put it to you another way -- Eight teams went 3-1 in 2008 preseason, only two of those eight had losing regular seasons:

Jets: 9-7
Dolphins: 11-5
Steelers: 12-4 (SB Winners!)
Titans: 13-3 (hecka good year)
Jags: 5-11 (they suck though)
Chargers: 8-8 (won division and won a wild card game)
Buccaneers: 9-7
Seahawks: 4-12 (they suck though)


But. Here’s the ultimatum/scary part: in 2008 preseason, guess who went 4-0. Yep. The Lions. I don’t think I need to tell you what happened that year (they went 0-16). Want even more proof? In the preseason of 2009, guess what team went 3-1. THE SAINTS!!  THE [SfITuE DcEkCingORUM] SAINTS!!


The scary truth is we are on the verge of either a guaranteed Super Bowl, or 0-16. The choice is up to us to root hard for the Chargers to win tomorrow, and by hard I mean rock hard like a teenage boy at home with unfiltered internet access.
