    The Charger could also be 3-0, 1-2 whatever. The same applies to every single team in the league. I swear an idiot must be doing that.

    I can agree with this much...
    a.) We got lucky in Oakland.
    b.) We got a gift with that fumble in the endzone on Sunday.

    Though they should also take into consideration that we almost beat the Ravens and that we beat the Dolphins with a pretty healthy lead.

    Or, how about this:

    Oakland got lucky on a desperation 4th and 15 play with a blown coverage (we had the lead @ this point)

    Miami got a gift on the Dielman bad call that pushed us out of the red zone

    We can play the what if game all we want. We're 2-1. It is what it is.

    Power rankings are masturbation for idiot sportswriters to have something to write about.

    Another place has us at #7, so it varies week to week. It's just fun to read their analysis of why they put each team in each spot.

    Power rankings mean nothing when it's kick off time. Hell they don't mean ca-ca anytime to me.

    So I guess Baltimore got a gift when Rivers didn't check the play clock and the Chargers were penalized 5 yards back from the 1 yard line. Or how about that gift of an interception when Rivers was trying to throw the ball away? Or the one that bounced off Gates's hands?

    What a stupid argument - every game has plays like that. How about giving the Chargers a little credit for winning without 4 of their most important players (all pro bowlers too) in the lineup?

    And while we're at it, can people stop making excuses for Tom Brady? I seem to recall Philip Rivers playing QB only 7 months after his knee reconstruction, and ending the season with 4000 yards & the highest passer rating. It can't be that hard, can it Tom?

    Just remember, don't say anything bad about Tom Bray-dee, otherwise you get the evil eye from his adoring fans at the ESPN Phatriots headquarters.

    Pointy :icon_twisted:

    I Fu**ing HATE Tom Brady. I was loving it when his recievers were dropping passes against the Falcons in the first half, and he was having a meltdown on the sidelines. :icon_rofl:

    I hope they miss the playoffs this year, and if the Jets keep playing the way they are, they just might not even make it as a wildcard. HA, take that ESPN !!!:icon_twisted:
