    My question is if the other team chooses to wear their white jersey to stay a little coler san diego has to wear there home jerseys why dont they break out the throw backs im ure powdwer blue will be a little better than navy does anyone agree or it probably wouldnt make a difference

    Beat the heat

    Playing in Miami early in the year often means dealing with the heat and humidity, and the Chargers will certainly battle the elements this weekend. Quarterback Philip Rivers believes his team will be ready to handle the conditions as temperatures are expected to be in the mid 80’s at kickoff.

    “Fortunately we’ve kind of had a hot month of September here in San Diego,” Rivers said. “That’s been good. We’ve been practicing in the heat. It’s key to stay hydrated. It’s probably more of a mental thing than anything. You can beat anything for three and a half hours. It shouldn’t be a problem.”

    In the NFL, the home team has the opportunity to choose which jersey they’ll wear, and like the Raiders did last week, the Dolphins opted for the cooler white jerseys this week. The Chargers will again wear their navy blue jerseys.

    There’s a chance the Chargers will need to bring their raincoats this weekend as well. In addition to the heat, there’s a 40 percent chance of thunderstorms forecasted in South Florida this weekend.

    The affect during temperatures in the mid 80's on the game will be minimal when you're talking about Jerseys. Adrenalin trumps it all. The players are going to more affected by whether or not they drink enough fluids more than the Jersey colors. Drink when not on the field, drink during time outs.

    I prefer the navies to the whites as well.

    But in answer to your question, you're only allowed to wear your alternate jerseys (our powder blues) twice a year, and you have to say ahead of time when you're going to wear them. In our case, we're wearing them next weekend vs. the Pats and in December vs. the Raiders.

    has it been announced that we are wearing the blue jerseys?

    This is a decision that is suppose to be made before the season, not a week to week thing
