    The ONLY reason we made it into the playoffs last year was because Denver CHOKED!!!!

    I appreciate the Colts playoff win, but how can Norv really take credit for this?

    Time to STEP IT UP! If you don't beat Denver tomorrow you're trash dude!

    Right.

    Winning 4 games in a row to end the season had nothing to do with it.

    I'm hardly Norv's biggest fan and I recognize the fact that we wouldn't have been in if Denver didn't collapse, but people always conveniently forget that the Chargers still had to win those games to get in.

    It'd be different if they started 8-2 and kept losing and were lucky that Denver kept losing as well.

    We realize that we had to win those games but like you said "we wouldn't have been in if Denver didn't collapse."

    BOTTOM LINE... 8-8 SUCKS!!! We were just lucky as Hell that it was enough to make the playoffs. Damn Freakin' Lucky!!!

    If we lose tomorrow, that should be the final dagger into this season (unless another Denver meltdown happens, which is highly unlikely). That means, it's time for AJ to kick Norv out of his bed!!! :yes:

    I'm not going to pretend last year is what I want to happen all the time or that we can get in the playoffs like that all the time, it's just a bit of a pet peeve of mine when people discuss it like as though the Chargers didn't do anything to help their cause.

    It required both

    We wouldn't have been in that hole if we had gotten our **** together earlier and not waited til the end of the season to figure it out.

    We wouldn't have made the playoffs if Denver didn't fall apart

    And we wouldn't have made them if Norv didn't lead the team marvelously in the last month and a half.

    It required all of the above and that's unlikely (at least with the denver choke) to happen two years in a row.

    So let's just win it early
