    Well, I'm glad we have Colts, Ravens and Bears at home...

    Titans away game is going to be a tough game too.

    I really do see us kicking some NE *** at their house... :yes:

    Colts, Ravens and Bears are very good. But its extremely lucky we get them all at home.

    Other than that, I dont see a team we face thats as good as us.

    That's what I thought heading into the playoffs. Homer in me says we will go undefeated but the realist in me says 12-4.

    16-0


    Dude, Give me some what you got!

    I'm sorry, but NO TEAM is ever going to go 16-0 and then win the Super Bowl. Not in this day and age. Look, I love the Chargers much as anyone, and next year, Oh, I think SD is the odds on favorite to win SB XLII. But nobody goes 16-0... come on now... you have to lose one, just to take off the insane media pressure...

    Watching the AFC Champinship tonight, while Green Bay was getting pelted with 10 inches off snow, was gay, I don't like The Manning's; I don't like the Bears, but I had the Colts for a Fifty spot, so I'll take the green.

    Let all us Chargers fans watch the Super Bowl in Two Weeks, and then know what we can expect in 52 weeks!

    BDK has spoken!

    I think a loss or two humbles and relaxes a team a bit... I've seen the pressure, many teams have endured with being undefeated for most of the season... Bears, Broncos and Colts immediately come to mind...

    I can live without and undefeated season... Just give me the Lombardi... :lol:

    Guys.. I have a strong gut feeling on this... We're do for it within the next two years.... Just hope we're still the SD Bolts...when we win it all.

    I just hope we get into the playoffs. The last couple of years, the wildcard teams have gotten into the playoffs. Also, the teams that flew low were the teams to get in. Last year the steelers snuck their way in, and this year, the colts had to play 3 games. So to me, just get into the playoffs.

    11-5, win the division in a tiebreaker with Denver and also manage to get the 2nd seed in a tiebreaker. Pretty crazy to get 2nd seed with 11-5 but hey it will be one of those years.

    Colts go 14-2 but lose their divisional. Bolts beat Cincinati and Pittsburgh in their home playoff games and go to the SB. There they beat a resurgent Seattle team 30-10. Marty there is your freakin trophy now get the hell out of town.

    I'd say 12-4 (7-1 at home, 5-3 on the road)

    a 3rd seed which I think might be good, play a lesser opponent at home, get over the "hump" of not winning a playoff game and then see what happens :icon_shrug:

    I'm gonna wait to see who we get. Which new coaches and what players we pick up.

    My hope and there is the possibility is they could land the last ingrediants to a very very good team. Which I'm hoping for of course.:yes: :bolt:

    NE maybe, but are you kidding me??? Chicago and Baltimore? These clubs are the same kinda teams. Both have good defenses but their offenses suck. If you can play your game and you dont turnover the ball, you have a good chance at winning. McNair and Grossman arent pro bowl type Qb's. You can beat them, but if you dont do your job, they can beat you. I know we can work these teams.

    Try to take into account that were gonna have a new offensive coordinator next year.

    My guess, 12-4. My homer guess 16-0 because we're still the best team in the league.

    All those teams we know. The only question mark: Tennesee. Vince Young came on strong at the end of this season. Something tells me they'll be much improved and that will be a tough game.

    Fluke, like Miami was last year. Just a team that was underestimated that got hot late. Im not worried about them.

    I love our schedule, we get all our toughest games at home, and our easier games on the road. Theoretically thats exactly how you want it.

    I'll just say this:

    If AJ continues his offseason brilliance, with a great draft and IMPACT FA signings, there isn't a game we should lose next year.

    This team is still improving, and can only get BETTER for years. A scary thought for the rest of the League.

    Its not improving if we cant resign Dielman and Phillips. That makes me real nervous. But we do have the money. I dont see why we would just let 2 probowl caliber player walk when their not injured.

    Phillips is restricted. I'm more worried about Dielman. To me, he is the biggest free agent signing we have to make. With Dielman, that left side of the Chargers line is a rock.

    I give Jack Henry the credit for our outstanding Oline this year. I think he could coach a 200lb running back into being a starting center if he wanted to.

    But all the same, PAY DIELMAN! The only reason he didnt make the probowl is name recognition.

    I thought we had a serious shot at it this year. We lost 2 games by last second FG's thats it.

    That's pretty impressive, given our "Brutal first place schedule".
