    Chargers have what looks like a few lucky breaks in the schedule but man alive this is going to be a real tough schedule. For AJ & Norv to keep their jobs, make the playoffs, they'll have to have a hell of a good year. Outside of one obvious one win (and even then its a 10am game which is never good for the Chargers), its a bitch of a year

    I see 3 home wins...and 2, maybe 3 road win. Honestly...6-10 or 7-9. 4 road 10 am games...that will be 4 losses right there with Norv coaching.

    But I will still drive from Sacramento to SD for a Sun. Game ( 8 hour drive )....just gotta pick which one...

    Tough schedule for the Bolts. This is definitely a make or break for Norv and AJ, their backs are up against it.

    Looking through this, We really dont have any games that are for sure easy W's. We face a lot of scary teams, even though they have bad records, they really can turn it on and scare you. I mean the Cheifs and Raiders have proven that, and add teams like the Panthers/Jets/Bucs/Bengals. We're gonna have to come to play week in and week out. We have a real tough schedule.

    I love this schedule. Not too many ridiculously tough, back to back road trips, the worst probably being at KC followed by at NO, but at least NO is a sunday night game and not a 10am pacific start. Love starting off the season on Monday night against the Turds followed by two home games.

    Under Norv, the Bolts are 6-7 in games that start at 10am pacific time. So saying the Bolts will lose all 4 10am road games is really really pessimistic.

    I think we have to start 4-2 to have a good chance.

    I personally hate the Monday night opener. We've had so many lately. Plus, we get none of the benefit of a long week before the game and all of the negative of the short week after.

    The one good thing is a bye week after our second Monday night game.

    Can anyone explain to me why we are playing AT Tampa? We were away at Tampa in 2008, which means we should be home this year. In fact, the entire NFC-South matchup is backwards! (Home-Away is exactly the same as 2008 - New Orleans and Tampa Away, Atlanta and Carolina Home)

    First 6 games before the bye :tup:
    10 game stretch :eek:


    Chargers always play better against better teams, sure we don't always win. Lets hope the trend continues

    good news is we only have to win our division anything after that is anyone's game
    bad news we only have to win our division:oops:

    An in-state monday nighter on the road followed by our home opener, sounds reasonable to me.

    The last time we opened at OAK on MNF and home against Ten, we won the two games by a combined 67-7 on our way to a 14-2 regular season, so let's hope history repeats itself.

    Now that Santorum's out of the race, PR can 'abort' them frothy
    endorsements & focus solely on the Raiders, Titans, Falcons, etc... ;)


    p.s.: I LOVE Philip...but still can't resist a cheap gag...

    The East coast teams got their panties in a bunch a few years ago over having the Chargers and Raiders be a pairing for some teams to play home or away, and Denver/KC being a different pairing. So we switched out with, I believe, Denver, and are now paired with KC.

    You think we'll lose at KC and Oakland but win at New Orleans and at the Jets? I'd love to hear what tortured logic led you to that conclusion.

    N.O. will be on interim coach number 1 when we play them, which is definitely in our favor. I have us losing @KC and @Oak because those teams have both given us significant difficulties the last 2 seasons when their starters are healthy, and it'll be early in the season. I have us winning @NYJ because I think by then Sanchez will be in the fetal position in a corner of their locker room screaming "Tebow" between sobs.

    I need to digest the schedule a bit before making any hard predictions. Couple of quick observations ....

    The bye is a little early for my liking but not bad. Since we so often start slow, this could be in a strategic spot to re-group a bit.

    I think we likely split with KC & Oakland. Have a feeling that we lose the opener - of course, that will open the fllod gates for the Chicken Little/Norv sucks contingent. :rolleyes:

    Agree with Ikeman regarding the Jets. Tebow is going to unwittingly blow that locker room apart just with his presence. He'll shatter Sanchez' fragile confidence & have the receivers screaming that they aren't getting enough balls thrown their way. This is the year that Rex realizes he had it pretty damn good as DC in B'more. Cro gets scorched in this one.

    Cam Newton & Andy Dalton worry me more than Peyton. Fun fact - Steve Smith has never played vs. the Chargers (per him on NFLN) & is an LA native.

    New Orleans, huh? Might be a bit early for me - right during harvest season. Maybe TB.
