    It has been many a moon since I have indulged myself in a thread or a poll. This season will mark a crossroads in the history of the Chargers football club. Failure or even mediocrity will undoubtedly bring about serious change in the management and the management philosophy. Success will likely mean lengthy contracts being offered as rewards and a continuation of the current era.

    Opinions are many and seem very diverse. Probably more so than ever. I want you to take a stand and go on the record stating you project the result for this season.

    The first and last time I predicted that the Bolts would go to the superbowl they did.

    I predict a return.

    Worst case scenario, I'm batting .500.

    I make a prediction by refusing to predict the season

    I predict the doom and gloomers are going to be very cautious about committing to what they are propagating.

    (with the possible exception of jackfrosting).

    We are finally "Under the radar" whatever that is worth. We are expected to play like crap, instead of doing well. This year we continue our trend of defying conventional wisdom and win way more games that predicted. The exact opposite of the last 2 years.

    A veteran guy like you Blewy has to know you are limited to 10 answers. I had to condense... (please specify)... as it was. :laugh:

    11-5, #3 seed, Super Bowl victory.
    I think I predicted 7-9 last year, so adjust accordingly ;)

    Do you want our expectations for the season or our opinions as to the most likely results?

    Good point. I was more after the opinions and I edited the text in my original post. When I designed this poll I was very much interested in individual opinions and not a consensus. It should have been enough just to vote. Whoever edited the poll to make it non-public threw a serious wrench into the works and pretty much invalidated the effort I put into it. Not that I wasn't expecting it... but I consider it underhanded that the responsible party remains unidentified and offered no explanation. Perhaps the concept of totalitarianism is included somewhere in the fine print of the terms of use.

    I've grown pessimistic with this regime. So I expect that one of the lines will be decimated by injury, thus providing the excuse we need to keep Norv and AJ at the helm... fire a coordinator and a few position coaches... after limping to a 9-7 or 8-8 finish... and watching the Chiefs win the division at 10-6.

    So much easier to enjoy the season when expectations are low.

    I hope I'm wrong.

    I voted "No Playoff Appearance" as the most likely result for the season. There likely won't be a wildcard team coming out of the AFC West, which puts us in a position of being one of four teams competing for 1 spot. None of the four teams are wildly better than any of the others, which puts our odds of getting into the playoffs at 1:4, thereby making the most likely result missing the playoffs.

    Thanks Ikeman. I appreciate you taking a stand. I voted at the very opposite end of the scale. One of the two of us is going to be dramatically wrong. :D

    Nefarious indeed. Maybe one of the .com mods got a guest spot for a day....

    The .com mods are fickle and vengeful, as well as merge/ban happy.

    Finally on a PC and not my phone. I checked the poll and it does show that results should be public (at least it shows that way now). Is it still not working as you wanted? Or did it already get fixed since you posted this? It's definitely not standard operating procedure to change something like that. At the very least, you should/would have rec'd a PM about any changes to your poll/post... Let me know, tx :D

    Thanks Syd. It is definitely still kaput. Whether the software made an editorial decision on it's own... or with a little help from it's friends... this likely will remain a mystery.
