Chargers players get in on Stephen A. Smith trolling after big win
The Los Angeles Chargers pulled off their biggest win of the season on Thursday night in dramatic fashion, but erasing a 14-point deficit — on two separate occasions — was not enough to make them forget about what happened with Stephen A. Smith earlier in the day.
During an ESPN appearance on Thursday morning, Smith offered some of his takes on the big AFC West showdown between the Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs. To say he embarrassed himself would be an understatement, as it seemed like he knew absolutely nothing about the game.
In just this short clip Stephen A. Smith:
— Forgot Spencer Ware was out
— Called them San Diego Chargers
— Said he was looking forward to watching Hunter Henry, who hasn't played all year
— Said Henry was going up against Derrick Johnson, who is a free agent

Not long after the Chargers defeated the Chiefs by scoring a touchdown with four seconds left and adding on a two-point conversion, offensive lineman Russell Okung took to Twitter to compliment Henry on a job well done. Henry was happy to play along.

Henry, of course, has not played this season after he suffered a torn ACL in May. Smith tried to offer an explanation for why he brought Henry up during his analysis, but it was obvious he just wasn’t prepared to discuss the game. The Chargers aren’t letting him forget it.
