    Stranger things have happened though.
    Anyone still arguing the West isn't over do not live in reality, or just want to argue.

    Even if SD win out (lets say thats realistic lol) then we still need to lose 4 out of 6. With home games to the Chiefs and Browns to come lol

      I mean I realize Manning is less likely to blow a virtual 4 game lead than Cutler or Orton who blew three game leads. But it's still possible.

      I say baby steps first. Lock up the division then worry about byes.

      After that eat your heart out.

      But Byes are overrated anyways. Teams with byes rarely go to the SB anymore and even more rare to win when they do go the last 10 years.

        The division is not over yet. Close but not over.

        As I already stated we handle our own business and win out and we will be ahead of them anyway.

        I'm not relying on a hated division rival to do anything for us. What is hard to understand about hat?
        Maybe I can explain. It's not so much that we want SD to do stuff for us... but it would give the Ravens one more loss. If we beat them we only count for one of their losses. Another loss to SD (who we beat twice) would give us two tie-breakers over the Ravens if we end up with the same record as them etc.

        I know it's hard to root for a division rival... but you always root IN FAVOR of your favorite team and in this case rooting for a Raven loss (see how i worded that? you don't even have to root FOR SD) would be rooting in favor of Denver.

        We need New England, Houston and Baltimore to lose as many games as possible (without putting another team ahead of us instead) so we can get the 2nd seed (or first?). It would be much better to go into the playoffs and get the first round bye than to have to play that wild card game. It's all about match ups at this point. If we don't have to face the Patriots in the playoffs that'd be swell.

          Yea, I am far from a homer, and far from optimistic, and I lean more on the pestimistic side a lot of times, but even I will say that the division is just about over. We will need a worse collapse, than our previous ones to blow this one. If Manning stays healthy, then this division is ours. Still gotta go out and take care of business. Hoping we can blow out the Chiefs.

            Im just saying as much as I hate the Chargers they are really none of our worries anymore. The two teams we need to start losing is Balt and NE to give us a easier path to the SB.

              THIS............ Great post.

              I thought every post would be like this TBH

              I can't see the Texans being caught, but for the rest of the season we should be cheering 3 things EVERY WEEK

              1 - Denver win

              2 - Ravens lose

              3 - NE lose

                I mean they could lose tonight and we would already be tied anyway.
                plus they play each other again in 2 weeks...its the pats that we need to lose even if we win out theyll get 2nd seed bcz they beat us...

                  I understand your point except the OP's question was not do you root for a Ravens loss? In that instance it's a clear yes.

                  The question was do you root for the Chargers to win? To that' its a clear no.

                  Like I already stated the Ravens could lose tonight and we would already be tied.

                  And I cannot stress how overrated the bye is.

                  Manning has never won a Super Bowl with a bye. He usually loses the second round or before the Super Bowl.

                  The one time he made it with a bye he lost. That was the rare year where both teams with a bye went.

                  His only SB win he played first round and won against a Ravens squad who had a bye in week 2.

                    If we beat the Ravens we likely win out and are ahead of them anyway.

                    So we don't need SD to beat them. We would still need the Pats to lose again.

                    If we don't beat the Ravens then it might help but we still likely won't get a bye.

                    So taking that all into consideration the ultimate decision is no I will not root for Rivers or the Chargers.

                        It was funny some people said they wouldn't cheer for a SD win, but would cheer for a Balt. loss.

                        Like there's a difference lol

                          So I would agree with you there. Except you did quote great post to RealBronco that said that.

                          But yes it's virtually the same thing.

                          And it's fine if you want to root for them. Different way of thinking. Neither is right or wrong. Just a different perspective. So I apologize if I was condescending a few times.

                          Just something I can't do.

                            I am in NHL firm belief that we have this division today. We would have to go 2-4 and the chargers 4-2 to lose it.

                            I am a fan of the steelers tonight, and the chargers next week and every team until the end of the season that plays hou, ne, Balt or the steelers. Whatever betters our playoff position.

                            We take care of our own business we are in, no one can take that. With a little help...the playoffs can run through Denver.

                                I want SD to lose because I hate them. We control our seeding vs BAL so no big deal. Go Broncos and screw the chargers!
