    I just saw that were 40/1 odds to win the SB. Now that the Cowboys have lost were easily this years Cinderella team. For anyone can remember back as a team that no one saw coming like SD won the big show before?

    All we have to do is beat the Bengals, Broncos, Patriots, and Seahawks all on the road. No problem

    At least we're guaranteed the Seahawks on the road (if we somehow made it through those first 3). Totally different team when they're in Seattle.

    I have never met Cinderella. But I never imagined her a woman large enough to stuff an entire horseshoe up her anus. Let us hope she can hold it in there another six weeks.

    All I know is we should've beat the Bengals, we beat the Colts already, we beat the Broncos at their house and we beat the Chiefs at their house. The only team we haven't even played is the Pats.


    I like our chances but even if it all ends this weekend, still a helluva season.

    And Tom Brady is looking almost mortal this season…surrounded by a cast of "meh."
    (it's almost as if there's consequences to having your tight end out breakin' the law).
    Don't get me wrong, I respect their 12-4…but they were not dominating this year...

    If we get past the Bungles and Donkeys there will be reason for hope. Up until then I think it is great that we can enjoy the ride.

    Absolutely not, and if I remember correct, Philip has not beaten Tom head to head yet. He has a winning record against Manning.

    I don't know but how sweet would It be to finally take down Brady after running through Manning one more time in the postseason? Chargers vs. Pats the AFC rematch of 2007. That's what I'm hoping for.


    But, I'm a dreamer.

    The AFC field is pretty wide open, with every team having at least one very large question mark:

    DEN: Defense is very vulnerable, good running game can also keep offense on sidelines, all 3 losses to teams in this field, one of them at home (SD)
    NE: No Gronk, defense vulnerable
    CIN: Team has not won a playoff game in 20 plus years, can Dalton avoid mistakes?
    IND: Very hot and cold down the stretch
    KC: Vulnerable in the secondary, but may have Hali and Houston back to help out pass rush
    SD: Which team is going to show up?

    Actually, were I in Vegas, I would take a modest bite of 35-1.
    (My tentative path to Yellowstone takes me through Vegas, but not 'til
    after the Chargers lower the odds, by beating the red-headed step child)

    They definitely played in like 07 or 08 and SD lit them up although not sure Brady was playing but I remember the game

    I believe you're thinking of Oct. 2008, Brady's "missing" season…

    That was Matt Cassel. PR is 0-5 against Brady

    of course I want them to win, and I'll be disappointed if/when they lose, but this is all gravy, as long as they play smart/tough football I'll be happy, good learning experience for 2014 and beyond

    Fun Fact: The Chargers have converted on 101 third downs this year. The only team this season to reach the century mark.
