Sans TE Ryan Krause, the Chargers take on the Bills later this afternoon, the latter’s J.P. Losman getting the start after last week’s win over K.C. San Diego coach Marty Schottenheimer has an interesting explanation for the Union-Tribune’s Kevin Acee about his club’s propensity for close games.
For those who don’t wear lightning bolts and run into other large men for a living, this is Marty Schottenheimer’s explanation for the Chargers’ inability to sustain domination and put opponents away:
“We’re in the entertainment business.”
So, the coach was asked, with his club about to host the Buffalo Bills after a bye week, would he not rather have a few more double-digit victories, wherein the final minutes are not fraught with tension?
“Yeah,” Schottenheimer said, before continuing with a straight face: “But I’d rather have the assurance we’d win every one and win by one. It keeps it entertaining, and it gets done what we’re setting out to do.”
It’s good the coach is concerned about entertaining the masses.
(For those who believe him, please call the number listed at the end of this article. There is a bridge for sale.)
I don’t get it. Where is this bridge and why isn’t the price mentioned on Acee’s voice mail?
