Default Chargers open as a 3 1/2 point favorites!

In today's USA TODAY. Keep giving the points and I'll keep taking them! When will they learn? The 3 1/2 suggests San Diego is a better team on a neutral field. Their O- and D-lines are a mess.

The nation still doesn't believe......kinda understandable really because even though the team is 5-0, the Broncos still are not sexy in any way.

I've said it before and I'll keep repeating it...it's 2005 all over again.

You know, in this case, I'm going to say this is a "believe it when I see it" game.

The Broncos are legit, make no mistakes... But this is a rivalry game, the Chargers have generally owned us recently... I will be very interested to see how we react/play.

Do the Chargers have a running game?

I love it! Keep doubting this team and giving them more to feed off of. I hope we're underdogs for the rest of the season...as long as we win, I could give a poo what Vegas thinks!

Go Broncos!!

Throwing that hook is begging gamblers to take the Chargers.

The home team will almost always be the favorite starting out. From then on which team people are betting on will determine the spread.

You get 3 points for being at home. They're basically saying it's a "pick 'em" game. And usually division game are. SD has owned us the last few years (Ed Hochuli notwithstanding), while they don't quite look as good this year, they are coming off of a bye.

We don't stand a chance against the mighty Chargers. It should be fourteen points.

Run the ball right down their throat... The loss of their NT has completely transformed their defense.

You've got to hand it to Josh, he kept going at Wilfork yesterday, even though we kept bouncing off him.

I would be very happy with an Identical 2005 season. That would mean we get to the AFC championship. Not bad for a team that was only supposed to have 2-3 wins going into the season by the experts.

We need to set a physical precedent against the Chargers:

WE ARE NOT TAKING THIS **** ANY LONGER.

I hope we go into SD with a military attitude. Winning this game would shake the foundation of the AFC West and give us a strangle hold early on this division.

Hopefully, Elvis gets back on track in San Diego.

Turner will hurt us on some screens, but hopefully Phyllis will choke...

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 5-0 team is an underdog ... to a 2-2 team that almost LOST to the _akland roiders!!!

AWESOME x2!
I hear Vegas is only starting the roiders as 14pt underdogs vs the Eagles ... _akland can't even score 14pts ... FREE MONEY!

San Diego only worries me in three respects.

Their long ball to their multitude of massive receivers.

Screen passes to Sproles.

Defense vs the short game (they are highly suspect vs the long ball as Pitt showed and we still have yet to show we can compete in that area).

What worries me is the letdown factor and the fact that SD is at home coming off a bye. Those are big advantages. It's up to the coaches and veteran players to make sure a potential letdown doesn't materialize, although the fact that this is a division opponent who crushed us in the final game of last season should certainly help!

I swear that Vegas is going to have the Broncos as underdogs against their bye week.
