The disrespect was real on Sunday when the Los Angeles Chargers, even in a game they were trailing by 10 points before scoring their first (and only) touchdown and by four points after they did so, decided to mock one of the greatest Baltimore Ravens players to ever live.
That's because tight end Gerald Everett, after hauling in a pass by Justin Herbert and scoring a touchdown to make the score 13-9 in favor of the Ravens, decided to pull off the classic Ray Lewis "Squirrel Dance" in the end zone as his personal celebration.
The touchdown capped a seven-play, 60-yard drive by the Chargers to try and make a comeback against the then-leading Ravens. Turns out they utterly failed at doing so, finishing the clash against the visiting Flock and eating a sound 20-10 loss when all was said and done.
Kudos to Everett for outmuscling Ravens safety Marcus Williams into the end zone on his way to score, but that's pretty much all he did. Why the disrespect? Why mocking the Ravens, who were leading the game before and after the score? Why?
Karma is undefeated, and that's why Everett could do nothing, even though he went on to score the lone Chargers touchdown on the day, to help his team beat the Ravens at their own stadium in Los Angeles.
Now, Baltimore is a near-lock to make the postseason and the most probable champion of the AFC North. The Chargers, on the other hand, might probably be better starting to look for both a new head coach and scouting a few of the top-10 prospects expected to enter next offseason's draft.
Gerald Everett's touchdown against the Ravens marked his third of the season, which is funny because he only seems to know how to score TDs against top-tier franchises having done so against the Chiefs and the Cowboys last month.
