View Full Version : Notebook: Chargers remember Chiefs’ last words

The last time the Chargers lost a football game, Chiefs defensive end Tamba Hali made a statement that didn’t set well with the Bolts, so much that the newspaper clipping remains posted on a wall in the team’s weight room nearly eight weeks later.

“After running the film we didn't think they were as physical as we faced (earlier this year),” Hali said. “The Steelers were physical. We played a physical game there. We were all banged up when we came out of there. Looking at the film, we know they (the Chargers) were a finesse team. We didn't think they were that physical a team, so we thought we could get after them.”

Running back LaDainian Tomlinson recalled those words Monday.

“What sticks out in my mind is them calling us soft last game,” Tomlinson said. “Obviously as a player, when somebody calls you soft, you don’t like it too much.”

Kansas City’s blitz-heavy scheme forced the Chargers to throw the ball a season-high 44 times in their October meeting. LT saw the Bolts’ method of attack as flexibility, not a definition of his team’s style of play.

“Finesse team or whatever you want, (but) we’re not a soft team,” Tomlinson said. “We can play any game that you want us to play. They beat us and that was our last loss, but they said we were soft. We’ll see.”

The Chargers are the only team in the NFL with at least 1,900 rushing yards and 2,800 passing yards. They rank third in the league in rushing. While they have the ability to air it out and get fancy, they also believe they can grind it out with the best of them.

“Teams like to label us a finesse offense,” quarterback Philip Rivers said. “I think we can be that, but we’re as physical as any group. Our offensive line, fullbacks and tight ends … we’ll line up and block you as we showed yesterday. If we need to spread you out and do some other fun stuff, we can do that too. We have a ton of weapons.”

Oh, yeah? Well, we're gonna fly into San Diego this week and we're gonna ... we're gonna ... we're gonna PLAY your ass! That's right, we're gonna TAKE THE FIELD, in our UNIFORMS, STAND for the national anthem and then RUN AROUND FOR 60 ****ING MINUTES!

Damn straight.

Maybe they'd have a little more to talk about if Huard hadn't dropped 30 on them after Hali made those comments.

I'm guessing Tamba said that AFTER the game.

Maybe the teams should just stand on opposite sides of the field and hurl insults at each other.

Mr. Hootie can decide the winner.

His stupidity goes beyond reading comprehension.
As you pointed out, Tamba said they were a finesse team.

Looking at the film, we know they (the Chargers) were a finesse team.

But Tomlinson not only misquoted Tamba, he even suggested that they could be called a finesse team.

“Finesse team or whatever you want, (but) we’re not a soft team,” Tomlinson said.

That's blatantly stupid.

Thats the thing, the Charger's are a finesse team. Whatever they have to do to get geared for a game. That's a Marty thing, he'll take any quote he can get to get a team inspired. I'm sure he's pumping that gleam in their ass as we read.

You have to go to a doctor and get a prescription to get one.....he did that, so that doesn't make it cheating. Brian Dawkins has one, if you really want one I'm sure you could get one.

The way this year is going, I wouldn't be shocked to see the Chiefs play their best game of the year. Even if we were to win and maybe win out the rest of the way and finish 10-6 I can't see us even making the playoffs as a WC. Not with 6 conference losses.

finesse = Soft in the NFL. You call some team a finesse team you are calling them soft. The players know that. It use to be a code word for calling a team soft without saying it but its not that way anymore.
