Chargers Challenging Chiefs

On paper, the Kansas City Chiefs are set to walk all over the Chargers on Sunday, but that does not look to be the case. Of the 4 losses this year, the Chargers lose by only an average of 3 points. The Chiefs have the better offense, and the Chargers’ defense does leave something to be desired, but for the Chargers always find a way to stay in the game till the closing seconds. With the Chiefs having one of the worst defenses in the NFL allowing 359 yards per game, this game might really prove to be a high scoring affair.

Making Move for the Future

With the trade deadline already upon us the Chargers decided to make some moves for the future. The Chargers traded away third string quarterback Cleo Lemon for A.J. Feeley and an undisclosed draft pick from the Miami Dolphins. And since the Chargers have two potential starting quarterbacks on their roster with Drew Brees and Philip Rivers, they are reportedly going to trade one of them in the offseason. The Chargers also traded guard Toniu Fonoti to the Minnesota Vikings for a conditional draft pick in the 2006 draft. A.J. Feeley was a big bust in Miami, hopefully he will be a suitable back up for either Brees or Rivers.

Turning the Season Around

Talk about turning lemons into lemonade. After going 0-2, and being discounted by most sports people that know such things, the Chargers are coming back in a big way. After handing a decisive defeat to the New York Giants last Sunday, the Chargers had a repeat performance against the Super Bowl Champions New England Patriots. Gillette Stadium is the place the Patriots call home, and they have won 21 straight games there. But that all came to an end on Sunday. LaDainian Thomlinson tore up the Patriots defense with over 130 yards rushing and 2 touchdowns. Next week is the Pittsburgh Steelers, unfortunately no time to relax and celebrate.
