    No rationality or reason needed here...

    Kierkegaard's leap of faith seems applicable...

      LOL! Dropping philosophy in a smack thread! Niiiiiiiice!

      I think I will counter with Hume...

          Does that imply that the refs helped them?

          Why play games?

          You know EXACTLY what I am saying! Your team had everything go in their favor that year. I recall a goofy onside kick in KC and lots more. That is the nature of this league-sometimes it is the team that stays healthy and gets some favorable bounces.

          You didn't cry about it, let alone discount it, then so why try now?

            Hmmm but I remember some threads that did.

            I just would like a definition of a cheap win. The only "cheap" win to me is when the refs are involved (hocculi-gate). The rest are earned or lucky. Denver has been EXTREMELY fortunate like otherworldly lucky.

            Also, smack forums and NFL forums in genral are the highest level of hypocrisy period. It borders on lunacy. But it is the sport we love and that is exactly why Fan is short for fanatic.

              SD opponents in win
              W 14 starting TE K and CB injured
              W 13 2 starting D-lineman and CB injured
              W 5 2 starting TE 2 starting DB and 2 starting WR injured
              W 4 2 starting O-lineman starting TE and starting LB injured
              W 3 starting DE starting WR injured
              W 1 starting CB injured

              look hard enough and you can find any reason for a win or loss whether its true or not. Heck the last team that went on a streak of winning close games like this was Indy in 07. Just because your team only wins by beating up inferior opponents doesnt mean that those wins were any better

              SD Average record of opp. in win 09 = 7-9
              08 = 6-10 (tied with denver opp. record 7-9) 5 comeback wins occurred against opp. averaging 6-10 for SD and 4 for Den
              07 = 7-9
              06 = 7-9

              In 05 Den had beaten opp. with an average record of 8-8

              Yes our wins have been against teams averaging 6-7 and we lucked out playing sub par teams and being in a garbage division. And I agree with SD fans we are still garbage and this playoff birth means nothing right now. However, if thats the case SD spent 4 years telling themselves they earned the playoffs when in reality the situation is the same for them back then as it is now for us.

                Send Barber a fruit basket because he single handedly won that game for the donks. Running out of bound then coughing up the ball in OT. Divine intervention or Barber taking a nice bribe.

                The Donkos seriously have thee ugliest offense ever. It's painful to watch until the 4th quarter lol.
                Bet you wish you had a team that could win when it counts instead of looking good until it becomes important...

                            Then we don't deserve to make the playoffs.

                            If we beat one of KC or Buf, SD is done.
