San Diego Chargers stick it to Michael Irvin with win over Philadelphia Eagles

The San Diego Chargers are off to their usual hot start this season. Fans are hoping they can keep it together under head coach Mike McCoy and avoid the type of implosion that plagued the Norv Turner era. But for now, sticking it to Michael Irvin will have to do.

Irvin, an analyst on the NFL Network, said that he expected the Philadelphia Eagles and Chip Kelly’s new high-powered offense to hang at least 60 points on the Chargers. After watching what Philly was able to do against the Redskins last week and seeing San Diego blow a massive lead against the Houston Texans, the idea was not all that far-fetched.

Instead, the Chargers traveled east and defeated the Eagles 33-30 on Sunday. And from the look of it, some players were able to use Irvin’s bold prediction as motivation.

Again, we’re talking about the Chargers. If they’re still winning games on the road in November, people might start taking them seriously. Until then, they’re simply singing a familiar tune.

    Not that I’m a Chargers/Chokers fan by any means but Michael Irvin is just another stupid ex-NFL player that has been converted to a “talking head” on yet another pre-game show tat is NOT needed. Let the games speak for themselves you pinheads!
