As we head into the final weeks of the season Justin Jones Color Rush Jersey , the Chargers are looking good. The Degenerate Gambler had been running on a 3-week win streak until last week. His instincts were right in most regards, but things just didn’t fall his way. He said it would be a three-point game, determined on the last play. Correct! He said Roethlisberger would throw for a lot, and that was true, too. But he thought it would be a more defensive game, and it was not.Each week the Degenerate Gambler, a ne’r-do-well NFL betting compulsive gambler, puts $100 on the line on various bets that the Chargers faithful might have some opinions about. Let’s take a look at what went wrong last week, shall we?Week 13:Chargers @ Steelers Wager 1 Total Points (Under 52.5) $45 [-110] L$0Wager 2 Total receiving yards - A. Brown (<84.5) $10 [-115] L$0Wager 3 Total receiving yards - A. Ekeler (>28.5) $15 [-110] L $0 Wager 4 Total passing yards - Big Ben (>301.5) $15 [-115] L $0Wager 5 No team scores 3 consecutive times $15 [+200]L$0 Week total:$ -100.00Season total: $ -1.46Well.That could have gone better.In 5 fell swoops, the season’s profits were effectively wiped out completely. Not a good day at the office. Luckily for you and I, the Degenerate Gambler has built enough credit over the weeks prior that he was easily able to scrape up $100 to lay on the line today. Week 14Bengals @ ChargersWager 1 Total points (Over 48.5) $45 [-110]Wager 2 Total receiving yards- M. Williams (>39.5) $15 [-115]Wager 3 Interceptions thrown - J. Driskel (>.5) $20 [-225]Wager 4 Total Field Goals Bengals (>1.5) - Bengals $20 [+125] Total possible win: $87.84Total possible loss: Everything (again!)Well, let’s take a look. The Degenerate Gambler doesn’t feel that the Chargers will have any problem clearing the +16.5 spread, but he’s not touching that with a 10-foot pole. There is no incentive for teams to go up by 3 touchdowns in the NFL, so if they are 14 points above the Bengals in the 4th, they’d better give Geno Smith some reps. Garbage time will ruin that spread, but don’t take the Bengals either. They are really decimated right now. However, he’s giving Ohio the benefit of the doubt by taking the total Over. The Chargers have been able to put a lot of points on the board lately, and this should really be a 30 point endeavor at minimum. With lots of points on the board Kyzir White Color Rush Jersey , receiving yards should be a-plenty. Again, be wary of them taking out Rivers, so receivers are a nice bet to aim for.Those looking at Wager 4 might be wondering why there is a +125 attached to what should be a shoe-in. Well, their kicker, Randy Bullock, has only made 2 FGs on the day once this season. He was 1-1 last week and 0-2 in all the three weeks prior to that. They haven’t attempted many kicks, but when they do.. it’s not been good. That said, the Degenerate Gambler is a proven sucker for positive bets. The Bengals are going to be eager to get points on the board against the LA defense, so it sounds reasonable that they’ll have to attempt 3 or so kicks. Just make two of those, Randy. -Jason “Don’t let the tiger catch you by the tail” Michaels This is a great time of year to be thankful for what we have, where we have been, and what the future holds. Although the Chargers have lost their way a bit in recent years, the month of December still holds such incredible promise! This advent calendar is an attempt to hearken back to these days of December joy. Each day will bring a new advent from the Bolts’ history that makes it wonderful to be a Chargers fan.Dec. 12: Kellen Winslow Loses 13lbs in One DayPlayoff football is special. Sometimes the win-or-go-home atmosphere raises a good game into the halls of greatness. Once every few decades, however, a game earns such a title regardless of the time of year. THIS game happened to be in the playoffs. THIS game happened to be one of the greatest spectacles on Earth.This game in particular, won by the Chargers in overtime (41–38), is one of the most famous in NFL lore because of the conditions on the field, the performances of players on both teams Virgil Green Color Rush Jersey , and the litany of records that were set. To really set the mood, it was referred to in the Miami Herald as the “Miracle That Died”, while Sports Illustrated dubbed it the “Game No One Should Have Lost.” The Epic in Miami has been a point of discussion this week because the Dolphins(!) used a hook-and-ladder play(!!) to defeat the New England Patriots. While the game winning play was quite different than that seen in the Epic in Miami (they are all very individual beasts), it brought back some fond memories for the Chargers faithful.In the days before Patriots dominance, the Dolphins finished the 1981 regular season by winning the AFC East with an 11–4–1 record. San Diego won their 3rd straight AFC West title in 1981 with a 10–6 record, beating out Denver, who also finished 10–6. The Chargers’ high-powered offense led the NFL in scoring (478 points), passing yards (4,739), and total yards (6,744).Yow! However, San Diego’s defense ranked only 26th in the league (at the time there were only 28 teams)Ow!First HalfBy the time the first quarter ended, San Diego had a commanding 24–0 lead. It looked like the outcome of the game was already decided. After Miami’s next drive resulted in an incompletion, two sacks, and a fumble (which Miami recovered), coach Don Shula replaced QB David Woodley with backup Don Strock early in the second quarter to see whether he could spark the Dolphins offense. That’s exactly what he did.Your browser does not support HTML5 video.Later in the half, San Diego faced a fourth down on the Dolphins’ 37-yard line. The Chargers decided to attempt a 55-yard field goal, but missed Caleb Sturgis Color Rush Jersey , giving the ball back to the Dolphins near midfield. Three plays later, Miami moved the ball to San Diego’s 40-yard line with only six seconds left in the half. A kick was out of the question, so they attempted one last play, a clear Hail Mary. In a play known as a “hook and lateral” (and lovingly remembered as Hook and Ladder for short), Strock took the snap and threw to Duriel Harris at the right side of the 25-yard line. Harris caught the ball and immediately lateraled it outside-and-back to the trailing Tony Nathan. The Chargers defense was completely surprised, and Nathan took it untouched for 29 yards down the sideline and a touchdown to cut the deficit to 24–17. Going into the locker rooms at halftime, the Dolphins had closed the game to within one score and regained all the momentum in the world. The Chargers had apparently Chargered, right?Second HalfIn the 3rd Quarter, Miami immediately tied the game. Then San Diego immediately responded with a TD of their own! And then Miami tied it up again! AND THEN Miami intercepted Dan Fouts (Editor’s note:better known as Doug Fouts), lateraled AGAIN, and soon scored a TD to bring them to the lead. The NFL’s leading offense quickly tied it up again before the 3rd quarter ended.As the 4th quarter neared its end, the Dolphins had a 7 point advantage. Fouts led his team on a 4-minute drive down to Miami’s nine-yard line with only 58 seconds left in regulation. A heavy Dolphins pass rush forced Fouts to throw a blind pass intended for Kellen Winslow into the end zone. The pass sailed over Winslow’s head but went right into the arms of would-be-blocker James Brooks for a touchdown to tie the game.Then the Chargers tried a squib kick, but the Dolphins maximized on the now-great field position. They moved from their own 40 down to the Chargers’ six-yard line with just enough time for one more play. Kellen Winslow extended his reach just enough to deflect the kick and this game headed to overtime! 38-38.OvertimeWith the players of both teams exhausted and dehydrated, everyone was hoping for a quick end to the madness, but that would not be the case. San Diego won the coin toss and marched down the field, driving inside the Dolphins 10-yard line. They then attempted a game-winning 27-yard field goal, but a bad snap and poor hold made the kick sail wide left. Miami then drove deep into Chargers territory, setting up a 35-yard field goal attempt for the Dolphins to win. The kick was low Mike Pouncey Color Rush Jersey , and defensive lineman Leroy Jones managed to leap in the air and block it.San Diego took over at its own 16-yard line after the blocked field goal. Fouts led his team 74 yards to Miami’s 10-yard line, where they attempted a 29-yard field goal. This time, the kick was good, giving the Chargers a 41–38 win after 13 minutes and 52 seconds of overtime play.Notable QuotablesChargers coach Don Coryell after the game:Miami coach Don Shula agreed:Chargers running back Hank Bauer:But perhaps the best performance of the game was put in by Kellen Winslow. In addition to his blocked field goal, he recorded an NFL-playoff-record 13 receptions for 166 yards and a touchdown, despite suffering numerous injuries. During the contest, he was treated for a pinched nerve in his shoulder, dehydration, severe cramps, and a gash in his lower lip that required three stitches. Picturing of an exhausted Winslow being helped off the field by two teammates after the game is an enduring image in NFL lore and has been replayed constantly ever since.Kellen Winslow being helped off the field after the Epic in MiamiSan Diego Union-TribuneSo incredible was Kellen Winslow’s effort that reporters cited that he lost 13lbs that game.13 pounds!The extent of Winslow’s weight loss has mystified a lot of writers since that fateful day. In fact, recently SB Nation writer David Pincus did his best to separate fact from fiction.So, while we don’t have the benefit of a before-and-after physical, real accounts from that game and since indicate significant poundage being lost.Ever since the Epic in Miami, the San Diego Chargers have not defeated the Dolphins in Miami. Until that day, though, we’ll always have the Epic to fall back on.-Jason “Guaranteed Weight Loss Formula” Michaels
