32 Teams in 30-some Days: The San Diego Chargers

The San Diego Superchargers are in a unique position this year. They could sit every one of their starters for every divisional game this year and still go 6-0 in the division. I'm only like 35% joking about that - in fact, the more I think about, the less I think I'm joking about it. After more deliberation, I have decided that in all seriousness the Chargers could play their backups within the division and go 6-0.

I think this is a sound strategy because they are going to need all the help they can get come playoff time - that's coach Norv Turner's time to shine.

San Diego will likely be a top seed in the AFC or at least near the top... and then falter in the playoffs. A Norv Turner in powder blue is still a Norv Turner.

Go Chargers. In all likelihood, a 12 or 13 win season sounds about right to me. In spite of Norv, only injuries to key positions will derail this prediction.

Truth be known, I liked them better when they were Air Coryell. An aerial circus that had Fouts, Winslow (the good father), Jefferson, Joiner, Muncie, et al..

It was a simpler time, before Rap. Grunge was stuff that grew under your fingernails. Before the time of editor and most of the contributors and readers. It was exciting stuff.

One draw back of that team was that they couldn't play in cold weather. So if they didn't play Miami in playoff games, they were done for.
