The San Diego Chargers and New York Jets are set to face eachother next week in So Cal, and Ladainian Tomlinson's stolen MVP ring is recovered down in Texas. Also, the Electric Glide.
JETS HEADING TO SAN DIEGO IN A REMATCH OF 2004-2005 PLAYOFF GAME
With the Jets emerging victorious against the Cincinatti Bengals, the Chargers now have an opponent for which they can game-plan for. The Chargers match-up favorably against the Jets, as New York's strengths do not pose direct threats to what the Chargers will look to do. As we've seen, the only way teams have been able to beat the Chargers is to score 30+ points against them and the Jets simply lack the firepower to match up offensively with the Bolts.
With that said, we are in the playoffs and the last time the Jets came here for a playoff game, they left many brokenhearted Charger fans in their wake (Pennington leads winning drive after Chargers miss field goal)
TOMLINSON'S MVP RING STOLEN, THEN RECOVERED
Dallas Police have recovered Ladainain Tomlinson's stolen TCU MVP ring this week while investigating a shooting at a Pleasant Grove apartment complex. From the article:
"Somebody shot through a wall of the apartment and we got the call," says Johnson. "After we made a couple of arrests in the apartment, we discovered the ring in the kitchen. We asked if anybody in the house played for TCU and it was fairly obvious that this was a stolen item."
The Chargers head of security has been notified and the ring sits in the DPD's found property department. The ring was reportedly given to Tomlinson after winning the Dan Rogers Award as the team's MVP while at TCU in 1999.
Thanks Wally for the heads up!
