    New Orleans
    New York (G/J)
    Philadelphia
    Minnesota
    Atlanta
    Seattle

    And in many cases wanna know why? BECAUSE THEY BEAT THE EVER LOVING CRAP OUT OF TEAMS THAT THEY OUTCLASSED FROM THE GET GO!
    We instead got beaten for three and a half quarters.

    Am I glad we won? Yeah definitely, but all I want is a super bowl win. And THIS TEAM I SAW won't make the playoffs

    Favre threw for like 110 yards against GB. Was that polished? We've had a lot of ugly wins against Oak during this 12 game stretch. They are a big rival and that happens alot in rivalries. Important thing is we won.

    Looks like knee or lower leg, out on a cart. Also lost Vasquez. Both looked serious.

    Minnesota looked like sheet in the first half, we didn't have the ball too much in the first half of our game.

    I didn't expect immediate fireworks, but rhythm wasn't a word thrown around alot in the second half either.

    We all want the Super Bowl.

    Any real NFL fan knows that teams sometimes just have bad games.

    Any real NFL fan knows that divisional games can be tough.

    Even the 14-2 Chargers almost lost to the Raiders....at home no less.

    Look at the Patriots game. You think Pats fans are writing off the playoffs right now?

    They won. Just enjoy it.

    We'll worry about the Ravens next week. That's the good thing about being a fan, game planning is not our job.

    Keep in mind the Raiturds have been trying to gameplan for us for 6 yrs now.

    If that's the best they've got thier best just won't do. (Dee Snider)

    We have a short week to worry about the Ravens. KC rolled up 24 points on them yesterday, with a healthy oline.

    Go Chargers! glad cro didn't mess up at the end or he needs to be benched!

    darren kicks ***! and this team will make the playoffs, but won't make it far if they don't improve significantly... I especially thought that the O & D line didn't do very well, and now a few of them are injured too!

    I thought I ran you off a minute ago. Get off the bandwagon.

    Sometimes you just gotta have faith. Quote this come February.

    You don't fix O & D line problems during the season. That must be done in the offseason.

    If we can't pick up 3 to 5 yards consistently on first down runs like tonight, we will struggle in the playoffs. If the D can't get off the field on 3rd down like tonight, we will struggle in the playoffs.

    Only chance is our young guys on the D line really mature quickly. 91 had a good game.

    What is reality? Saying this team wont win the Superbowl after week 1? That is... Your reality? Really? Wow...

    So I suppose that you didn't bother to look that as the game went on the Chargers got better and better on offense. Or that no divisional game is a push over...

    You think that the Raiders should have just laid down? That doesn't happen. Welcome to watching the NFL, you need to step away from Madden more often.

    Leo, when you win a game to start the season by wiping the sweat off your brow in a game everyone in the world thought would be a blowout (newsflash) its not the best victory. Not to mention that we lost players to injury. There's a time to be blindly positive about your team and a time to be seriously concerned with a team that should have all the pieces but doesn't look like it on game day. Wake up!

    That we looked like an atrocious lazy team, that was reality

    We got smashed for three straight quarters for a team we beat in our sleep. We won? I'll take it gleefully. Made some improvements on offense? I agree

    But that team did NOT look good there, and we better see VAST improvements or we are in trouble

    And if you CANT see that, then your living in a fantasy land

    If that gets me screamed at, then so be it. Better to light a candle and see what's going on, then curse the darkness and get blind-sided

    Ant, you have been watching football long enough to realize that team DO INDEED IMPROVE AS THE SEASON GOES ON! This chicken little BS is really getting tired. Are you channeling your inner Matilack?

    I'm not blindly supporting the team, i'm just enjoying a victory.

    I didn't argue against anything Ant said, I just choose not to worry about it for the time being.

    What are we supposed to do? Storm AJ's house and demand answers as to why they didn't win by 40 points?

    We're just fans, all we can do is watch the game.

    If they win I'm happy. I can acknowledge concern for their chances in the future and still enjoy a victory.

    Dang, some people are never happy! Pats barely won.. and because of some luck with the fumble too! That doesn't mean they're going to go under .500 and not make the playoffs now!

    But yea, I'll reserve my thoughts on the season until bye week!

    Because you are the only one singing doom and gloom. You are the only one predicting no Superbowl based on week one.

    I think you need to look at the glass as half full bro... Enjoy the win, you are treating it like a loss...

    I'll say this much, people need to get off Ant's back about getting off the proverbial bandwagon.

    Everything he's saying is actually true. I just don't see a point to complaining about it at the moment because a win is a win and it's not like we, as fans, can do anything about it so we may as well just enjoy a victory.
