    If we get 1 win from the cardinals, seahawks and broncos we have a strong possibility of being 7-2 at the bye. I can see us finishing with 9-11 wins. That back stretch is brutal.

    Well, if the Chargers are in the hunt at the end of the season they are really going to have to earn it

    The ENTIRE schedule looks brutal. We're gonna have to be damn good to make the playoffs this year.

    Should be fun game to go to. If you can swing it stay at the Marriott Renaissance Hotel that's right by the stadium. Lots of things to do right there. No driving just fun!

    I don't know if this is a 'bad schedule'

    We have tough teams but there's no really bad stretch of games. Hell before the bye there's at least 6 games the Chargers could realistically win and we follow it up with another lighter stretch. Worst section is where we face the 49ers and Patriots back to back. It'll be tough no question but the schedule doesn't make it worse

    Brutal. Probable about 8-8 but I don't care about the record this year.

    Another good draft to plug up a few more needs and just keep improving. It's going to take a couple more years to get completely past the previous regime. By then we are set, Manning retires and - BOOM. In the hunt.

    More silver lining, both the Chiefs and Broncos have tougher schedules because despite winning a playoff game, we finished 3rd in the division last year.

    Looks like it's a Chargers vs Seahawks and a few Padres vs Phillies games for me if other things go my way to make it happen.

    3rd year in a row as the 2nd Monday Night game for the opening week. What's up with that?

    We usually run heavy with the December home games, looks like 2 home games per month during the regular season.

    I always look at the schedule and dream about what 'east coast' game I could get to handily enough, this year it's Baltimore.... then I wake up and realise I have no money.

    10:20pm starts are a bit rough for a Monday Night game, but God willing and the river don't rise I'll watch it.

    Second Monday Night Game sucks. Only half of the people who would watch do, because back east it is already 0'dark thirty when the game starts...

    I'm always awake at 0'dark thirty anyway.

    I like that I can watch the Sunday games in relative peace not fretting about the Chargers game that day.

    The 2nd reason is personal bias. I work nights so having the late night MNF game allows me to get home before the game really gets going.

    I typically "miss" the 1st quarter or so....I DVR it so that I can watch from the beginning and typically catch up halfway through (fast forwarding slower parts and commercials)

    Well start saving now and we'll get the group of us over there again in 2015, I know that's what I'm aiming for.

    Mrs English and I have now made our plans for 2014 and will be booking flights tomorrow - we're going for a week each in Vegas and SD and are going to be at the week 4 Jaguars game.

    I'm still having withdrawal symptoms from squirty cheese and tacos.
