    Will this be Schottenheimer's year at last? [​IMG]

    By Gordon Forbes

    (Dec. 6, 2006) -- This is the week that Marty Schottenheimer and the streaking San Diego Chargerstry to attain the unattainable -- a sweep of the Denver Broncos.
    The last time the Chargers swept was in 1982, when Philip Rivers was 1-year-old and Schottenheimer was a defensive coordinator in Cleveland, teaching a kid named Clay Matthews the tricks of playing linebacker. Although Schottenheimer won't admit it, at least not until the Chargers take him to his first Super Bowl, this is the best team in his 20-year head-coaching career.

    Yes. All streaks end at some point, the good streaks just get more attention than the bad ones. Schottenheimer and the Chargers will win the Super Bowl this year.

    if he can't do it now, I wonder if he ever could

    I agree. If Marty can't at least reach the Super Bowl with this team, he's truly destined to never go.

    If the Chargers and the Colts get the 1 and 2 seed in EITHER ORDER the Chargers have it made.
    They get to play at home in the playoffs and at worst will play in Indy for the AFCC game where they have won before. Not to mention Indy doesnt stand a chance against LT.

    So obviously I want the #1 seed, but if Indy gets it it wont be the end of the world either.

    Indy has the worst run defense in the league.

    Yeah, even if we wind up with the #2 seed, there's a good chance Indy goes one-and-done with their inability to stop the run.

    That means we can host the AFC Championship with a win over the wildcard round winner we face.

    One bonus about playing in Indy would be that LT plays really well on artificial surfaces. I'd still prefer to see the game played in SD, but Indy does not scare me.

    If we win the Super Bowl this year, he'll finish out his contract and go for back to back Super Bowl titles!! So will the Chargers!!

    If we lose in the Super Bowl or AFC Championship, He'll be back with a vengence.

    Anything less... See ya!!!!
