I hate the Chargers so don't like being the contrarian here but I think you're all writing their obituary a bit too soon. They finished strong, their D played much better under Rivera, they still have a lot of young talent, and Merriman will be back. Let's not forget that they beat Indy in the playoffs, and Indy was a good team this year.
They have good, young talent at QB, LT, and WR just like we do, and much better talent on D. To think we're automatically going to be better than them next year might be wishful thinking. But I hope you're right.
