    I've been watching various NFL-centric programming on NFL Channel and ESPN lately. And I've been listening to national sports shows like DP and The Herd since I can't stomach the 1090 morning show. And though the chances of the Chargers making the playoffs are razor-thin at best, the football pundits are already talking like Denver has won the West, going so far as to analyze the Colts @ Broncos game and even picking the winner.

    Now, I'm a realist, but more than ever I'd love for this thing to extend ONE MORE week and set up the face-to-face matchup in the final REGULAR season game at the Murph. (F the Q!)

    The longer the media experts are around, the more the average person should realize they know as much or less than the rest of us.


    It sure would be sweet to go head to head for the division, that's the only thing I can think that would bring some form of redemption to the bullshyt thats happened this season.

    I'll start off by stating that I'm not getting my hopes up unless things go our way on Sunday (and considering the opponents of the two teams I doubt they do)

    That being said, as of right now our chances aren't quite as low as one might think.

    Everybody (media and fans alike) keeps focussing on the fact that the Chargers not only need to win two in a row, but they also need the Broncos to lose two in a row.

    At face value, that seems like a lot to ask for, making the odds "razor thin".

    What nobody takes into account is that the Chargers need only the Broncos to lose one game in week 16 in order to have control of their fate.

    Denver loses in week 16 and we beat Tampa Bay then all bets are off because the week 17 game is for the division.

    Yes, we technically need Denver to lose twice on top of us winning twice, but one of those losses would be at San Diego's expense, so we're only relying on another team once.

    The fact that that other team is Buffalo (as well as our opponent being Tampa Bay) is what makes our odds low and not in our favor.

    If i go down to stateline and place a bet for Tampa Bay and Denver, than the bolts will win and the Bison will win also. Never fails, if i bet a team, opposite happens. :icon_huh:

    We're going to win in Tampa. I just have this feeling.

    And I have a feeling Bills will take it down to the wire with the Donks, but the Donks will have something favorable happen that lets them win. Good luck, a call by the refs...something.

    It will hurt to know that we could destroy the donkeys at home too.

    I was saying very early on in the season that the division and playoffs would come down to Game 17 at home, but when we choked against the Falcons and the Broncos pulled away against the Jets, it made it down to to a 10% chance.

    Just win and put the pressure on the donks.

    If we win out and don't make the PO's, I'll be happy that we didn't have a losing season. With all this team has gone through this season, I'm surprised we even still have a shot at it. Although it may be a flies *** at 3000 meters, it's still a shot. :bolt:

    We'll beat Denver at home. I just hope that it will count for more than pride. Not knocking pride, ya know, but I'd like to spoil Shanarat & Co.'s little party. :icon_twisted:

    Yeah - something about 8-8 that seems a lot better than 7-9. :unsure:

    I believe what the late great Dale Earnhardt said, " second place just means your the first loser". Even though it isn't great it still will be an accomplishment our boy's can at least take some pride in.

    I've never wanted to punk a team so bad in my life. :icon_evil:

    I wanna see Shanarat & Cutler crying like the little *****es that they are after our meeting. **** those mile high, mullet-wearing asswipes.

    Our guys better make up their minds to BRING IT for the next 2 weeks. **** some **** up. :bolt:

    It's going to happen. The Donk's aren't a good pressure team and they will fold quicker than a house of cards.

    When they are looking at coming to Dego to save face, it's all over but the crying. :bolt: :tup: :icon_toast:

    Holy shiit... and you almost qualified yourself here as a realist.

    Our team sucks... and so does yours. It's reality, deal with it. :lol:
