Anderson Throws His Way Out Of Game, Hall In Facing 28-7 Uphill Climb At Half

Everyone pretty much predicted a Chargers victory, but seeing it happen in front of your eyes is hard to stomach. 

The only thing worse than Derek Anderson (two interceptions, three sacks) is the Cardinals defense, who can't stop the run or the pass or the pain. The Chargers ran for 117 yards and threw for 138 and simply moved the ball at will.

The Cardinals started the game with a very nice drive that saw Larry Fitzgerald catch the ball a few times and get all the way to the Chargers 22 before a Tim Hightower touchdown run was called back on a holding call, only to see Derek Anderson get picked off on the next play.

It was all downhill from there. Actually, who are we kidding? It was all downhill the minute Kurt Warner retired.

Anderson would give up another interception (for a touchdown) before getting yanked for undrafted rookie Max Hall right before the end of the half. 

Welcome to the NFL, rookie. Now go erase a 28-7 deficit.
