Default I'd like to congratulate the San Diego Chargers

Great job guys. I really mean it. You've done a swell job of ensuring that Norv gets a contract extension. Couldn't happen to a more deserving bunch. Enjoy.

Seriously, these guys are the **** in the second half of the season.

That said if they don't make the SB this year they are one of the biggest failures I've seen!! How many times can you come so close to making it and fall just a bit short?

As a fellow Bronco fan, I'm sure you have a pretty good idea. We've had our fair share of "making it" but not winning it.

Of course, but SD was supposed to be a serious SB contender in what... the last 4 years? It's about time they make the leap. I don't know...

good for them.
they deserve norv


we can still win the west but need help.
win the next 3 and finish 11-5 and hope that the titans and bungles beat the dolts. that gives us the tie breaker.

I mean, it's all media bull$h** in the end that determines who's hyped up with "contender" status.

So many random things have to go the right way for a championship appearance, let alone a victory, that I can't really begrudge a team for consistently making the playoffs and winning games once there.

This year, SD has suffered some really devastating injuries but they've kept plugging in new players and playing hard to win games. Gotta respect that. We've (luckily) endured few injuries, and we've had major problems playing through them (Orton, Harris, and I really think the loss of Larsen affected our offense today, much more than I thought it would).

Definitely. It's impressive.

I'm just saying that it has to be disappointing for them to get so close and not get there.

I'm sure it is. Probably be the same this year. All passing, no running, average at best defense. Doesn't bode well for playoff football.

With all the basketball wr's and star rb's coupled with a solid o-line and a vet qb who acts like a punk, but is a top qb they should be scoring many points each game. They have a decent opportunistic defense ( a bit cocky for their talent) but nonetheless should be contenders with all that talent. Why they start off in a nose dive is beyondme, but per usual they've just picked up there game just in time to make a solid run. The question is , will they flame out before making it to the big dance like the last 5 years. There's not alot of contenders too punch them out this year in the afc. I hope they go one and done, but realistically prolly not.

If SD gets the 2nd seed, there's a good chance they can just keep doing that.

You guys misunderstand my congratulations.

I never said anything about the division. I only said congratulations about securing Norv for another few years. Come on people. Keep up!

, you dont know much about football dude. Well, chalk up an idiot for Bronco fans as well. You qualify.
Seems to me every WR waves their arms wanting a flag in every game i watch. Yours included.
Thats all Santonio Holmes did Thurday night so it dont matter how tall you are. And id take short guys Hines Ward and Steve Smith over our tall guy Malcom Floyd anyday of the week.

Holy crap! This turd can't even recognize sarcasm in the OP. How does it feel, bpc, to know guys across the country think you're a dumbass? And it's not, as you likely believe, because you're superior and are in the right and everyone else is a slackjawed moron; but because you really are a dumbass?

Please go cheer for another team. And take rasta and lex with you.


Oh, and by the way? Screw the Chargers.

I've been off and on the Norv wagon so many times that I can't even figure out where I'm sitting right now. He's done an awesome job this year. We've had a completely bull**** injury situation, but young players keep stepping in and playing well. That is the hallmark of a good coaching staff.

I'm inclined to believe it's the consistantly good to great play from Rivers and the recievers more than coaching.

You guys have had a lot of injuries but the time of the games has been great for you. Baltimore and Pittsburgh early, when you always play like ****. A string of really soft games to get you in rhythm. Us and the Giants in the middle the worst stretch of games in the year for both teams. Dallas in December. Worked out really well for you actually.

You got hot and took care of business.

But as for Norv I don't believe a leopard can change it's spots. Norv is a soft coach and has historically brought teams down. Rivers is overcoming the Norv factor almost by himself this year. If I were you I would pray for another situation like it was with Marty. Fired after a great year. Of course your GM hand picked this one so that might not be so quick to happen. But it is a contract year so technically AJ could still say he didn't fire the guy.

I am not in the mood for any congratulations to the Chargers. They havent won it yet and their own fans can give them kudos. Since so many jumped back on the bandwagon even though "their" team does this every year, makes you wonder how fickle they really are. I am, though, in the mood for a one finger salute to the Chargers. Keeping Norv? That isnt looking so bad this year. Let us hope for a typicle Norv type playoff game plan.

Rivers and his passing game make the Chargers the dangerous team that they are. Norv's specialty is developing good passing games. It doesn't make any sense to hold that against him.
