    Chargers I think will go 3-1 down the line.
    Oakland loses out
    Denver goes 1-3
    KC goes 2-2

    It would be nice to be playing for something the last week in Oakland.

    i'll be happy/pissed if we do...
    being a charger fan is like being the kid with the ****** dad.
    you get your hopes up that he's gonna finally come through this year, he starts to, then goes on a bender booze'in before xmas and you write him off, then he sobers up and says he coming to xmas, and finally your left hoping again.
    i f'n hate that flake...but hope he shows up to xmas anyway.
    back to cutting myself.

    Other than the Pats, that is an extremely weak remaining schedule for Denver. It will suck if they win this division with that hack behind center

    It would be nice to go 4-0, 3-1 the rest of the way, I just know, I'll be looking for something better to happen next year. At this point I'd love to see a Lombardi on display in Chargerville but at what cost at this point?

    I think 1-3 or 2-2. I don't think we beat Baltimore, or the hated Raiders. Buffalo is a possible win. Detroit, it all depends on if their defensive line can dominate our patchwork offensive line. Stafford will probably carve the defense up, as well. I don't take a lot from beating the Jags. They are the kind of team we can beat. Winning teams, that remains a question mark.

    Funny how before last night's game, people had already written us off and predicted that we couldn't even beat the Jags. Now those same people are calling the win as predictable.

    1-3. Beat the bills then lose out.

    People are jumping the gun, this is the same team that was 4-7, only difference is we beat a completely demoralized, injury plagued team. That secondary is Unquestionably the worst in the NFL. 3 of their starters were out, and the other guy left is a scrub.

    We will be lucky to escape the Raven game with a healthy Rivers...Lions will be pissed and have way too potent of an O for our (horrible) D...and the Raider's will have Run DMC, Ford, and Moore back all while that game will be pointless for us.


    Can't keep diggin' holes and expect to jump out at the end of the season each year. It's a marathon, not a sprint and you have to be consistent for 16 games or you get left in the dust come January.

    Thanks for posting this, I was wondering about the other teams' remaining games earlier. We have a pretty tough road ahead, but amazingly somehow still have a small shot at winning the division.

    Good time to play Buffalo, as their early season surge has well and truly faded now, Baltimore are their usual tough selfs, Detroit will probably be smelling a wildcard place, especially now Chicago are slipping, and Oakland is Oakland.

    The Raiders do seem to be losing some steam, and finding our fast that Carson palmer kinda sucks, which considering how much he cost them is more than a little bit funny. Also McFadden seems to be a bit like Mathews but better, great when he plays, kinda injury prone.

    On the flipside, i think all of us are waiting for the wheels to fall off the Tebow bandwagon, hopefully this happens soon!

    The denver defence won't let them lose to Caleb Hanie and Marion Barber. They'll lose to NE but I can't see them losing to CJ Spiller and Ryan Fitzmagic Buffalo Bills or the Kansas City Palkos. So even if we run the table we'll still be 9-7 and the Denver Tebow's will be 10-6. Though if they do drop two games and finish 9-7 we'll probably beat them on tie-breakers.

    Possibly not, but I can see Tebow blowing a game here and there with a few well placed INTs.

    Oakland is a fraud unless they play against us. They lose big to Green Bay, and lose to Detroit. They have already been shut out by KC in Oakland, and KC is playing better since then. And then we probably roll over for them in the finale (though I hope not). Denver will probably win the division.

    I never said we couldn't beat the Jags. If we had lost to them that would have been awful. I am saying we don't beat teams with winning records. Not yet anyway.

    Yee are hoping against hope I fear... Unless a team gets a good lead on Denver then Tebow can do what he does best. I'd like to see a team go 14 pts up with a half to go and then let's see what he's got. He hasn't had to pass enough and he won't be throwing many picks if he doesn't 'have to' pass. Best we can do is 2 and 2 I reckon. It is the draft for me now.
