Bad teams findways of losing

Dec 16, 2003 7:01 AM

Take the Arizona Cards, please.

We’ll back the Big Red as a Henny Youngman joke, not as a team you can bet on the money line. ”˜”˜Zona" invented a way to blow a late lead and allowed Carolina to escape with a 3-point win in OT.

Then, there’s San Diego. The Chargers were up 21-17, then allowed 21 straight in a 38-21 loss to Green Bay.

And finally, Cleveland. Forcing a 20-20 regulation tie at Denver, you somehow knew the Browns would lose that game in OT.

Why can’t teams play like the Lions and fold like a 14-point dog should at KC!

...8 IS ENOUGH: Houston became the first team in NBA history to score eight points in a quarter during consecutive games with San Antonio. The Spurs have a new motto: Forget the "Alamao," remember Yao.
