Kid Reporter: If I Could Interview Philip Rivers...

I would love to interview Philip Rivers of the San Diego Chargers this week. What a devastating loss we had to the Miami Dolphins! It was painful to watch. Rivers had his worst game in 8 year and the Chargers offense and defense were both off their game. I would ask Rivers what it felt like to be taken off of the field in the 2nd half. I don't think that has ever happened to him before. I would ask him what happened overall. Was the team not prepared? Was he sick? Was it just bad luck? I would also ask him what he plans to do in the bye week to get out of this 3-game slump. Come on, Rivers! We need you.

Kid Reporter: Still a Sproles Fan

Although Darren Sproles is not a new NFL player, he is new to the Philadelphia Eagles this year and already making his mark. I have been a Sproles fan since he played in San Diego. Not only is he a great football player with his speed and explosion, but he is also a great person off the field. I was happy to see him using his moves in week 2 to score a TD for his new team. The Eagles are lucky to have him.

Kid Reporter: Johnny Manziel

The rookie I am most excited to see play is Johnny Manziel of the Cleveland Browns. He seems like he is going to be an upgrade for his team. I think he needs to show that he is a threat to other teams and prove what all the hype is about. He has a lot to live up to, let's see if he can do it.

Kid Reporter: San Diego Super Chargers!

  This Sunday the San Diego Chargers face the Cincinnati Bengals and they are going to show up ready to win. They are going to prove that they deserve their spot in the AFC playoffs. Last week against the Chiefs they showed their heart and persistence. They play well against hard teams and things finally went their way in a close game situation. With their new coach, Mike McCoy, the Chargers are taking risks that they never used to do like going for in on a 4th an 2 situation. This type of

Last week against the Chiefs they showed their heart and persistence. They play well against hard teams and things finally went their way in a close game situation. With their new coach, Mike McCoy, the Chargers are taking risks that they never used to do like going for in on a 4th an 2 situation. This type of play is risky but has great rewards. I will be rooting them on this Sunday. How about you?

Kid Reporter: Crazy Comeback!

  Last Sunday night, I actually thought that the Patriots would make a comeback when they were down 24-0. Last year, when the Chargers hosted the Broncos, they were ahead 24-0 at halftime and we ended up losing against them 24-35! It was horrible to witness as a Chargers fan.   When I was watching the Patriots/Broncos game and they were ahead by that amount, I had a flashback and thought, "I bet the Patriots can come back! The Broncos deserve to see how that feels!" Turns out, the game

When I was watching the Patriots/Broncos game and they were ahead by that amount, I had a flashback and thought, "I bet the Patriots can come back! The Broncos deserve to see how that feels!" Turns out, the game was awesome because Tom Brady pulled it off. I thought Brady was the better QB because of his ability to comeback. Manning was at a disadvantage because of his hurt ankle. He is tough, but I think his injuries are going to keep haunting him.

Late Night Football in Oakland

Poll. Would you like to see more late night games?

The Chargers and the Raiders played at 11:35 pm EST on Sunday. I had school the next day so my parents (pictured above) went to the game and I stayed with a babysitter. My Dad thinks every game should be at night under the lights. I would like that too if they played at 6 pm so I could go too. What do you think?

Kid Reporter: Catch the BREES

  One player on my fantasy team, Drew Brees, is doing great things for me. Last night against the Dolphins, he gave me 32 points to boost my team's score. Although Adrian Peterson gave me 26 points this week, I'll need to trade him because he is now injured. I look forward to another week of fantasy football!

Kid Reporter: Coaches vs. Quarterbacks

  A great coach is the most important part of a successful team. A great coach will make the best choices for his team. If a great quarterback isn't doing well, the coach can make the decision to pull him out and put in a different quarterback.     While a great quarterback is important, he is only one part of the team. The coach oversees the entire team and puts the right players in the right positions, at the right times for the best outcome.           &

Manti Te'O...Wow!

  I am surprised the San Diego Chargers got Manti Te'O in the second round of the Draft. I am hopeful that the Chargers will be successful with this new addition. People around town are talking about how he could be our next Junior Seau. That would be awesome. We need something to happen around here and he might just be our man!

My Favorite Player

Darren Sproles is my favorite player because he is very speedy on the field.   When I met him, he gave me advice about how to be faster. He said that exercising is the best thing to do. He encouraged me to keep playing.   Darren Sproles is my favorite player because he inspires me to do my best.   Zachary NFLRUSH Kid Reporter

What A Move!

My favorite play so far this season was not for my own team, but for the Colts/Titans game.   It was overtime and the Colts' running back, Donald Brown, jumped and twisted backwards into the end zone for a game-winning touchdown. I have never seen a move like that before.   Zachary NFLRUSH Kid Reporter

The Best and Worst Game All in One!

I went to the Monday Night Football game this week in San Diego. I was so excited when the Chargers were killing the Broncos 24-0 at half time. It is so awesome to be at the stadium in person when your team is doing great.   We decided to leave just after halftime and the Chargers totally fell apart after that. Rivers and Norv Turner really need to get their play calls together. Why were they throwing the ball rather than running it when they were ahead by so much?   It was the be

We decided to leave just after halftime and the Chargers totally fell apart after that. Rivers and Norv Turner really need to get their play calls together. Why were they throwing the ball rather than running it when they were ahead by so much?

 

It was the best night to be a Chargers fan at the start, then the worst night to be a Chargers fan. Two rough weeks in a row! Come on Bolts!

Chargers Rocked the Raiders!

The San Diego Chargers played great against the Oakland Raiders this week.   My favorite part was when Philip Rivers broke a tackle and threw the ball to Malcolm Floyd for a touchdown.   The Raiders are really hurting themselves with all the penalties they're getting. The Chargers got two third down conversions in the same possession because of penalties. Wide receiver Malcolm Floyd looked great on the Chargers.   It was fun to watch them stomp on their rivals.

Go Chargers!

I've been watching my favorite team, and I think the San Diego Chargers are doing a great job in the preseason!   The Chargers had a big win in their first preseason game when they beat the Green Bay Packers 21-13. Then in Week 2 they had a big comeback against the Dallas Cowboys to beat them 28-20. On Friday went on the road and beat the Minnesota Vikings 12-10 for their third preseason game.   I got to go to the first preseason game this year. It was exciting to be there, especially

I got to go to the first preseason game this year. It was exciting to be there, especially since my Bolts beat the expected Super Bowl winners. I'll be watching the Chargers on Thursday against the San Francisco 49ers, so I hope they can keep up the good games into the season!

Dolphins Looking Good After Draft

After watching the Draft, I feel that the Miami Dolphins are going to have a much better season in 2012-2013. They picked a new quarterback, Ryan Tannehill, which they've been needing for awhile.   The Dolphins also got a couple of tight ends, including Michael Egnew which will help out as well. They were also able to draft linebackers like Josh Kaddu to help out on defense.   I will be watching to see if this new guy will intercept the ball and help out the Dolphins in this way. Altho

Drew Brees does it!

Drew Brees is one of my favorite football players! He is by far my best fantasy pick player. He proved it big time last night when he broke the 27-year old record of single season passing yards held by Dan Marino.   My dad is a born Dolphins fan and told me what it felt like when Marino set the record. I know I will never forget watching Brees break the record last night. I just wish he could still be on the Chargers!

Wes Welker is the Man!

Poll. Who is the best receiver on the New England Patriots?

My best Fantasy player on NFLRUSH last week was Wes Welker. He got me 34 points! He has been consistently good since the start of the season. I am definitely starting him again this week on my Fantasy team, and I know he will deliver again! I am predicting that he will get 28 points this week.

Matt Ryan Will Dominate Fantasy in Week 1!

Even though I am not a Falcons fan, I do like to watch Matt Ryan play. I think that Matt Ryan will be the best overall Fantasy player in Week 1. Since he was the top Atlanta QB last year, I think he will continue to dominate with the Falcons, especially with their new rookie receiver Julio Jones.   Even though I am not a Falcons fan, I do like to watch Matt Ryan play.

Ish's Sneak Peek

  I liked when you could view all of the Guardians of the Core together like a movie. It was fun to view all of those episodes put together. We recorded it, so I have watched it many times now.   My favorite part was when Ish was grounded for not coming home on time. Ish knew he had to watch the game that weekend, so he had the good idea of watching it on his neighbor's TV through the window.

When the sun got bright and the neighbor shut her blinds he said, "Ah, C'mon!" That part really made me laugh. I hope they make new episodes next season.

LT will Finally get his Ring

"I know he has tried so hard for so long to get a championship ring." I think the Jets and the Packers will be playing in the Super Bowl. Out of those two teams, I really hope that the Jets win! I have never been a Jets fan before this year. However, ever since LT moved from the Chargers to the Jets, I have been rooting for him and his new team. I know he has tried so hard for so long to get a championship ring. I think he really deserves one so hopefully this will be his year. Go Jets!

The Chargers Road to the Playoffs

"This Sunday, the Chargers are playing the Chiefs. We have to win this game!" This Sunday, the Chargers are playing the Chiefs. We have to win this game! The Chiefs are 8-4 and Chargers are 6-6. The Chargers will be at Qualcomm Stadium so we have a good chance of beating them on our home turf. We failed to score in the Red Zone last time we played them. We have to get better at that. Our Special Teams have to be on their game too.

Zach's Favorite Week 9 Game

Poll. When is your Favorite Time to Watch an NFL Game?
The best game from Week 9 was the Chiefs @ Raiders. It was a close game and it was exciting down to the last minute. The score was 20-23, which is the score that a lot of games are ending in this season. I was disappointed that the Raiders won since they are the Chargers’ rivals. The Chargers better take back their winning streak when the Raiders visit San Diego.

Still Loyal to LT

My top running back so far this year is LaDainian Tomlinson of the New York Jets. Even though I am a Chargers fan, I am loyal to LT because he is a great player and he seems to be a nice person. I am happy that he is doing well on his new team. He seems to have gotten stronger and faster this year and I know I will keep watching him all season long.
