    Camp Confidential: Chargers primed for Super Bowl push

    SAN DIEGO -- Whenever Shawne Merriman feels the urge to push himself, all he has to do is show up at the San Diego Chargers' practice field.

    The chance to challenge himself is always available.

    "Look at all that talent on offense," Merriman said. "We have the players here that make you push yourself. We have guys who make you want to get better and who help you get better."

    Merriman also can count on his teammates, who comprise what is arguably the finest roster in the NFL, to make another push for the Super Bowl. Although the window of opportunity isn't closing, the team knows the time is now. In 2006, the Chargers won 14 regular-season games, and last season they advanced to the AFC title game.

    "This is our best opportunity," Merriman said. "I don't want to say there is urgency because every year you try to make it your time, but I really think this year is our best opportunity. We have to do something about it."

    The standout linebacker said the Chargers' goal is to have a fast start in Year 2 of the Norv Turner era. Last year, the Chargers stumbled out of the gate at 1-3 before rebounding to win 10 of their final 12 regular-season games. Merriman said that if the Chargers are to make it to the Super Bowl, they must resist talking about the Super Bowl. He said that last year that the team got caught up in the Super Bowl hype after the 14-win season in 2006.

    "All we have to do is try to win every game, and all we need to worry about is Carolina in the opener," Merriman said. "We know all we have to do is go out and do it. We have the talent to do it."

    As much as they hate to admit it, looking at our team and saying "we don't have great chances of winning it all" would make about as much sense as saying "Coca-Cola is not a soda!"
