Done and Out Already?

Starting off 0-2 was not the idea the Chargers had in mind. Their two losses have both come at the hand of 4th quarter collapses against the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos. Many think that the Chargers could already be on the brink of being out of playoff contention.

Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports says, “San Diego's remaining slate could realistically feature 11 games against teams in playoff contention. And it's dotted with the Rolls Royce franchises from both the AFC and NFC: Patriots, Steelers, Eagles, Colts, Jets, Broncos, Chiefs (twice).”

So it looks like it’s going to be a difficult season ahead for the Chargers. Their next game on Sunday against the New York Giants could mark either the beginning of the end or the beginning of rebuilding. The Chargers need to forget about the last two weeks and focus on starting the season over again. It’s not over yet.

Chargers Start With a Limp

Not the way we saw this season starting out, at 28-24 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Last year’s surprising season for the Chargers has really gotten people ready for this new season, to see the improvements made to get them past the first round in the playoffs. The silver lining in this cloud is the 4 sacks handed to Drew Bledsoe. The defense is going to need to stay active like that against the Denver Broncos next Sunday, if they want to even their season out to 1-1.
