    Another mental exercise while we wait for the opening kickoff in Denver:

    I'm thinking Rivers spreads the ball around and Crayton, Brown and McMichael step up when we get into "third and Gates" situations. (translation: 3rd and more than 4 yards to go) The running game will continue to improve.

    On defense, Jammer, Cason and Gilchrist will have a good day, Spikes and Butler will be a force in the middle...and Spikes won't be adversly affected by the altitude in his first game in Denver.

    Special teams...can you say touchbacks?

    Oh, and the donks aren't very good.
    Chargers win big... 31 - 17

    Bolt talkers, your thoughts?

    I think this is a tough game to read: The Bolts have not been
    the offensive juggernaut they were expected to be (especially in the red zone),
    and the Broncos haven't been as bad as expected
    (they've played better teams than the Chargers have, and--except for the
    eventual blow-out in Green Bay [which they were still in at the half]--
    have had all three games decided by a field goal or less)
    Throw in the mile high environs,
    and it's easy to see why the Chargers are only favored by about 4.
    Should the Chargers win? Sure.
    Have they finished games they're supposed to win, this year? Yes.

    In other words, I wouldn't be surprised by a 23-20 Bolt win,
    OR a 41-9 blow-out. The only thing that looks real unlikely (to me)
    is a one-sided Bronco win. Prediction? Ack! Um...San Diego 27 Denver 20.
    (though I'm HOPING for a one-sided 4-touchdown Charger blow-out
    ...or in Concudan's terms, a 'tough' win) ;)

    We will crush them. Expect to see Tim "the Messiah" Tebow in after the half.
    Chargers 41
    Little Ponies 9

    Good analysis I agree. The Broncos D has been better than expected. So long as they are starting Orton, I think we have an advantage. Orton does not like to have his linemen stood up in his passing lanes and in his field of vision. Though the Chargers front 3 have not gotten to the QB as often as perhaps we want, they have had success in standing up the O linemen and blocking the Gaps.

    Throw in a line backer blitz, and I think all it will take is having people swatting at Ortons feet and hands to really frustrate him.

    That said, the Chargers will have to do a lot better in the red zone. I see a Chargers win, not sure if I buy that it will be a blow out.

    If that happens good. However, wasn't it Tebow who scrambled for almost 100 yards on us last year?

    Donkeys are awful. Crowd will be on Ortons case from an early stage. Its going to be nice to win big (at last)

    Chargers win but not without giving us another heart attack of win against a bad team.

    Bolts win, very close first half with adjustments made and the Chargers coming out stronger in the second half.
    17-9
