    12 wins? Only if the Chargers sleepwalk through the season.

    Chargers will have more than 12 wins this season.

    Actually, 12-4 sounds good to me if we can be both healthy and peaking going into the playoffs. :)

    Like with the rest of us here so far I could care less what our record is.

    I just want The Chargers to hoist the Lombardi High in the sky for the world to see and see us sporting the Bling Bling as well bolt style.

    SO I WANT THE GD SUPER BOWL WIN AND GET THE RINGS

    I'm cool with us going 10-6 or 11-5, being a Wild Card, winning every playoff game on the road, and then being WORLD CHAMPS!!!!:abq1::abq2:

    Last season we started slow amidst massive coaching staff turnover, reluctance of many players to buy into Norv's system, poor WR play, Rivers struggling a bit as more responsibility was heaped on him, and some pretty good teams early on our schedule.

    Once we came together, we recovered to capture the AFC's 3rd seed but still had to travel to play 2 road playoff games.

    This season I think we start fast and compete for the top seed in the conference. The team now buys into Norv & Ted's proven systems, Rivers is now a weapon himself and they all know the benefits of a bye week and more home playoff games, especially since we rarely lose at home. If we can get the top seed this year, there will be noone to touch us in January.

    Standing in our way are potential injuries, and six tough games sandwiched by 5 easily winnable games both to start and to end our season. I figure the toughest of the 3 will be against New England, the Colts and at Pittsburgh. I feel that if we beat the Patriots and win at least 2 of those games, we’ll probably be the top seed. (especially if the one we lose is at Pittsburgh) We win all 3, we’ll be the top seed without a doubt! :bolt:

    I see 13-3, the #1 seed in the conference and our backups getting some playing time in blowouts to protect starters, keeping them healthy for our championship run. :flag:

    Barring injury, i see 16 wins :yes:

    However, 12,13,14.....even if its only 10 and we win all our playoff games and then the SB is all that matters. This team and this City is destined for a championship

    I think 13-3 is possible and then to focus for the big one.

    I don't care if they get into the playoffs at 7-9 as long as they start winning once they get there.

    I think 12-4 or 13-3 is a real possibility. I really don't care if we beat the Pats in the regular season, but I definitely want to meet and beat the living s**t out of them on our march to the Super Bowl. Super Bowl prediction - SD 34, NO 20.

    Being as objective as possible, 13-3 looks about right.

    - The rest of the AFC West is down again this year, unlike past seasons. A 6-0 division record is a realistic expectation.

    - Of the most difficult games, three are on home field against teams that will have jet lag from travelling across three time zones: Panthers, Patriots and Colts.

    - When the Bolts are forced to travel cross country, the schedule is much easier, with games at mediocre Miami and Buffalo that the Chargers should still be able to win. There's also no 'frozen tundra' homefield advantage road games all year long either.

    - The schedule pits us against the NFC South, which has one bad team, three okay teams, and zero elite teams. It also has us facing the AFC East, which includes the Patriots - who we would have played regardless - and three teams that should pose no challenge.

    Bottom line is there are at least eight automatic wins on the schedule. Worst case, the team only wins half of the other games and goes 12-4. 13-3 is more likely and 14-2 would not be a surprise.

    Lancer, this is a great post. We really did have a very difficult beginning to our '07 schedule.

    That said, we have SO MANY injury concerns, I'm not even thinking about our win total for 2008 just yet.

    I dont seeing these teams getting jet lag. They are going back in time, so that means an extra 3 hours for them. Much easier coming to the west coast than the east coast.
