    Those things are fun to look at, but crazy statistical anomalies occur with regularity in pro sports. I don't know what probabilities looked like the year we had to win out AND for Denver to lose 4 in a row, but I'm pretty sure we're better off now than we were then.

    At least the chargers have a chance now. We were running out of chances. NOw its time to clean up all the fricking mistakes and start playing smart football. WE need to win most or all of the games from here on. As usual.

    I agree that since the Chiefs let another one slip away, the door is still cracked open, and no team in the division has the experience of HAVING to win out and actually doing it recently like the Chargers, so, this is still a three team race. I DO like the Chiefs chances, but at the moment, that's all they are - chances. Performance will be key.

    The only thing we know for sure about the playoffs so far is that DALLAS, BUFFALO, CAROLINA, DENVER, and CINCINNATI have been eliminated. No chance in Hell any of those teams make it to the playoffs. And I'm sure I forgot a couple more with NO chance whatsoever.

    It's going to be a mad scramble this year with such parity this year. Could be a wild year unless teams start separating themselves from the pack

    None of them are mathematically eliminated.

    I going to go out on a limb and say that NE, NYJ, Balt, Pitt and Indy make the playoffs, leaving just one spot for the AFC west champs

    I personally like to think of your team as being on a barstool. A barstool that was three games and now two games above the rest. That sinking feeling you are sensing are the league chain saws on the legs of your barstool. Get use to the noise of chain saws.

    Here we come.

    No kidding sherlock...But we all know NONE of them will make it. That was my point. They are eliminated by their poor play, and the better teams ahead of them at this point. UGH.

    Hey 65TossPowerTrap -

    YOU were 3 games up when I penned this masterpiece.

    I see you lurking today. Sack up and take your medicine. Time to say you are a sorry. Get on your knees and pay alms to the Bolt temple. Say you are not worthy.

    Face it. That tightness you feel in your chest is no heart attack. That is our dagger. Time to twist.

    time for the chargers to go to Plan B. WIn one game at a time now. Just get into the playoffs. With jackson playing and floyd healthy, and with matthews with high top shoes and very sticky gloves along with tolbert wearing very sticy gloves and some guy named Rivers we can still win this whole thing.

    Well, all we need to do is win our division. And we have games left against the Turds and Quiefs, which, if we win, pulls us even as far as record goes, but not sure if it gets us past oakland in division wins. Still, I"m not expecting a whole lot out of either them or the Chefs come crunch time when every game is a 'must'. Like someone said, at least the bolts have been there and we're STILL loaded with talent which should be coming back just at the right time. But, even if we do pull the mini miracle again, I think the reason why this team loses early in the playoffs is that they have been spent emotionally and physically always trying to come back and win a spot. By the time the playoffs start, they're on a 'let down' emotionally from the regular season.
