    By Bill Williamson

    Philip Rivers is putting a positive spin on a bad situation.

    After years of being considered a preseason Super Bowl favorite that never materialized, Rivers is hoping the Chargers can fly under the radar this year after a disappointing non-playoff season in 2010.

    “This offseason might be good for us,” Rivers told NFL Network. “There’s always been a lot of hype surrounding our team, whether it be people picking us to go to the Super Bowl or talking about how talented we are. That’s all kind of gone away. We ought to be humbled and hungry and ready to get back out there.”

    Rivers might be onto something. The Chargers have had to deal with big expectations for years. Now, after going 9-7, perhaps playing the role of a desperate team will serve San Diego well.

    In other AFC West nuggets:

    The Chargers are no longer offering a minority share of the team.

    AJ is truly brilliant. Draft like crap so the team flounders, misses the playoffs, thereby taking all pressure off the team but then he returns to his drafting brilliance, thus the Bolts kick *** and go on to win the Super Bowl.

    Freakin genius that guy.

    good point--to even attempt contemplation of the Mind of AJ is incredible folly.

    I'm all for the Bolt's taking a different approach. How about starting by winning a damn Lombardi!!

    A easier way to that goal would be letting go of one coach in question.
