    yeah they choked those games, that is the sole reason mike mccoy is now your OC

    oh and you don't choke multiple games away like they did by not having a good offense.

    the chargers are stacked on offense and in my mind it's just the OL that will decide how good that offense can be. you will start to see people saying the same thing i am soon enough, mark my words.

    and still went 1-4

    i told you all that your team would be lucky to make the playoffs, i told you all that the defense would take a step back and the offense would suffer without a real QB.

    i told you all last season would be elway's truest test as a GM and since then he has really come back to earth and people are not talking so much about him being the best GM in football anymore, that's for sure.

    and no, all teams do not have injuries like the chargers have had. i challenge anyone to find me a team that has sent as many players to IR as the chargers in the last two years.

    in fact, find me a team that has sent more to IR in a two year period at any point, go back as far as you like. most of them were key players on both sides of the ball as well.

    tell me how rivers is supposed to be successful with arguably the worst OL, his first 5 RB's on IR, and 3 of your top 5 WR's out. you come on back here after you lose week one and tell me how i am wrong 10% of the time

    that's with losing your two best play makers week 1 and 2 (keenan allen and danny woodhead) as well as having arguably the worst OL in football. the chargers were jumping all over teams and choking those leads away in the 4th quarter.

    now they have gotten healthy, bolstered their OL in a big way, and added a top 10 WR talent to the mix.

    NE has brady so fair enough but if you look at the offensive weaponry the charges have, they stack up against anyone in the league.

    melvin gordon at RB proved last year he can do it all.

    keenan allen (if healthy) is a nasty route runner and a legit #1
    mike williams on the other side is a better talented version of vincent jackson at worst
    tyrell williams in the slot had a breakout season last year with over 1000 yards and 7 TD's, he fits the slot much better and is best when making plays in space.

    hunter henry lead all TE's in TD's as a rookie and is a real threat in the RZ, he is a threat all over the field.
    gates in a limited role still needs to be accounted for.

    Stop with the melodrama. I'm not saying LAC isn't going to have a good offense. I'm saying there are a lot of other really good offenses out there.

    I like LAC's OL draft picks, but rookie O-Linemen don't typically have nearly the impact rookies have at other positions - it's a brutally difficult position to play in the NFL. that is why I doubt they'll be top 5.

    You have reason to be excited, but I think your expectations for their offense is unreasonable.

    Ultimately, I hope they have a great season and beat up the AFC's West and East (less the Pats).

    That's what you guys said last year. The Broncos were 9-7 and the Chargers were 5-11. Way off there! Once again don't mention injuries cause every team deals with them and its a lame excuse (You sound like Patsie fans) Good teams over come them. You still had rivers right? "your HOF" Everything you say we all just take with a grain of salt. you're about 10 percent right on your predictions.

Off the top of my head - New England, Atlanta, Green Bay, Pittsburg, Oakland, New Orleans, Dallas and probably a few other teams I'm forgetting should be pretty stout offensively.

    no, you will lose because your team is inferior going forward. the chargers are closer to being on the raiders level than the broncos or chiefs. the only wild card is the OL and if they can stay relatively healthy.

    Well your argument is that we will lose to the Chargers at home because our qb's are not good not cause our team is no good. Chargers were 5-11 last year so I guess they are good? Your statement makes no sense.

    No, I don't think LAC will be good this year - just a little better then Denver. The 2 teams split last year - picking a Chargers win to open the season doesn't strike me as a overly egregious on my part. I think the Chargers will improve slightly from last year and Denver to regress slightly. I expect Denver to slip densively.
    the chargers will have a top 5 offense in the NFL. the chargers could have changed nothing and just gotten healthy and they would have improved more than just "slightly" but they also upgraded the OL and added another offensive weapon.

    i get it, people want to see it first before they start calling a former 4 and 5 win team a playoff contender but the signs are all pointing forward.

    In Denver's case, I'd argue your statement should be: "9-7 WITH a first year QB isn't bad" - and I have no argument with that theory. But let's face it, Denver's D carried the team.

    Siemian/Lynch weren't good last year. I think their play will improve with more experience throughout the season, thus the reason for my original post.

    He's going to be better than you realize coming out the gate.
    3 games >300 yds and 3 games <200 yds. Another game with just over 200 yds.

    He may come out of the gate strong, but I don't think last year's performance can be used as supporting evidence.
