Default Realistic expectations for Sunday

Im all in with Tebow, just like many of you, but, let's face it, he's going to struggle at times and San Diego has one of the leagues best defenses -- at least statistically.

And then you add to that the fact that San Diego is one of the most explosive offenses and our defense is one of the worst, it could be really bad come Sunday.

It just seems like Sunday might be a time to temper expectations. Tebow is only a rookie. And he also doesn't play defense.

What are you realistically expecting on Sunday?

I'd like the defense to keep San Diego under 50 and I'd also like it if the offense scored at least 20. It wouldn't shock me if neither happened though.

Bolts are pretty banged up:

Stephen Cooper LB Knee Did Not Participate In Practice --
Patrick Crayton WR Wrist Did Not Participate In Practice Doubtful
Larry English LB Foot Did Not Participate In Practice Doubtful
Antonio Gates TE Toe Did Not Participate In Practice --
Jacob Hester RB Knee Did Not Participate In Practice Doubtful
Scott Mruczkowski C Ankle Did Not Participate In Practice Questionable
Mike Tolbert RB Neck Did Not Participate In Practice --
Malcom Floyd WR Hamstring Full Participation in Practice Probable
Brandon Siler LB Ribs Full Participation in Practice Probable
Antwan Applewhite LB Ankle Limited Participation in Practice Probable

Expect a win or pretty damn close score. Let's see how tebow does against a better defense.

I expect to see growth in Tebow's game, don't care about much else.

Would like to see:

More on time throws from the pocket
Less jump balls down the field

I'm expecting a good game. Not sure if Broncos can win it or not, but I sure would love for the Broncos to end the season with a big win at home against Sandy Eggo.

I am hoping for a win, it's the Chargers.

If we can't win, another performance from Tebow to give us hope (and we'll be picking 2nd).

Anything but an "absolute embarrass"

If the Chargers come in utterly disinterested, then the Broncos have a shot.

Otherwise, it could get ugly....Tebow or no Tebow.

Even Florio agrees.

Quote:
Chargers at Broncos

Florio’s take: Chargers owner Dean Spanos already has declared that coach Norv Turner and G.M. A.J. Smith are safe. So good luck getting a team which recently had high hopes and now has no hope to go all out to beat the Broncos, who hope to finish a nightmarish season on the highest possible note.

Florio’s pick: Broncos 27, Chargers 20.

I expect that Tebow will continue to grow. I expect him to bounce back from rookie mistakes. I expect him to NEVER give up.

I expect our Defense to get beat'n like a red-headed step child with a kodiak steel toed boot.

I expect Rivers to be a complete asshat.

I expect a better showing than last time we met.

It'll be a good game. They may be out of the playoffs, but one guy will come to play for sure...
