D’oh!ByJason MichaelsDec 23, 2018,7:13am PSTShareTweetShareShareAdvent Calendar - Dec. 23: The Chargers have failed to kick off...twice!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. 23: The Chargers Have Failed to Kickoff...Twice!Kickoffs in football are a pretty common part of the game. I know, there’s been rumbles here and there about getting rid of them or making them safer, but until that day—they are just an ever-present part of the game. Well...almost.Kickoffs are indeed part of the game, but they aren’t necessarily a guaranteed part. We have already delved into the weird truth of the NFL free kick earlier in this Advent Calendar series, but the Chargers have also made their mark with two very rare marks in the record book: failing to kickoff—twice!OK. Sounds silly. How can this be true?Kickoff, noun:A kick that puts a ball in to play in American football and other sports.OK LaDainian Tomlinson Color Rush Jersey , now that we have re-learned what we likely all already know, we see that kickoffs are an integral part of the game. They MUST kickoff if they score a TD or field goal, and they have a choice if they score a safety. Beyond that, they are offered a choice to kickoff to start one of two halves each game. Thus, each team in each game has at least ONE guaranteed option to have a kickoff.Thanks to Quirky Research.com, we can see exactly how rare this is.The only way a team can be on this list and not be shut out is to score a safety, to score at the end of the first or second half or, in a nearly impossible scenario, to score the game-winning points in overtime. Highlighted below, the Bengals are the only known team to never kick off in a non-shutout when the Patriots took an intentional safety in the fourth quarter.So, in a very strange set of events, the Chargers are on this very exclusive list twice. Once, in their inaugural season (in the AFL) against the Dallas Texans (Kansas City Chiefs) Jatavis Brown Color Rush Jersey , and again in 1987 against the Denver Broncos.Both times, the Chargers of course lost the game with a grant total of zero points. The wind is almost definitely the reason why the Chargers would take this course of action, but it is still an option that would have watercoolers buzzing the next day.What’s even stranger is that the Chargers did this once representing LA and once representing San Diego. Both were away games, which also factored into the decision making.-Jason “Whew knew!” Michaels Your daily dose of Los Angeles Chargers news & notes from around the web." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteBolts From The BlueBolts From The Blue, a Los Angeles Chargers communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsChargersOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections San Diego Chargers Daily LinksSan Diego Chargers NewsSan Diego Chargers OffseasonSan Diego Chargers HistorySan Diego Chargers HumorFiled under:Chargers Daily LinksLos Angeles Chargers Daily Links: Should Bolts bring back Tre Boston?New,18commentsYour daily dose of Los Angeles Chargers news & notes from around the web.PDTShareTweetShareShareLos Angeles Chargers Daily Links: Should Bolts bring back Tre Boston?Mark J.

A very capable safety, the former Virginia product possesses key traits that will allow him opportunities to be productive at the next level.Los Angeles Chargers: The Tom Telesco Draft Awards - Tyler SchoonAhh, the third round. Telesco teased us with a home run in Keenan Allen in his first year Rayshawn Jenkins Color Rush Jersey , then proceeded to draft three straight busts. Tuerk is the only one to never play a single regular season snap with the team, failing to do anything in the attempt to recover from his ACL injury. Never seeing the field does put him on this list by default, but he was more of a gamble pick that could have paid off big, as he would have been one of the best centers in the draft if not for his injury.Chargers prospect profile: ASU interior defensive lineman Renell Wren - Tyler SchoonWren can be incredibly disruptive, using a quick first step when allowed to run forward. Against Michigan State, there were multiple instances of No. 95 absolutely blowing up a run play, usually driving the opposing lineman straight into the ball carrier.
