    Not completely finished yet. 9-7 for a wild card is still a slight possibility, so if they could go 6-2 from here out, they might be in the picture. They play the Steelers and Colts still, and the Broncos again, and maybe the Bucs game could be close. They got their pass defense under control there in the 4th quarter, so maybe that spells good things... but I hope not.

    They won't make the playoffs. Their defense is one of the worst in the league. They have absolutely no pass rush and their secondary is being exposed.

    I think Denver is bad enough that SD can snag the AFC West title.

    The Norv Turnerism of a talented but immature team continues. They should try to bring Schottenheimer out of retirement next year, it's their only hope of seeing the playoffs for a long time (even if they don't get past the 1st round).

    Over on another site that focuses on the draft, there's at least one draftnik who's suggested the Classers will fire Norv and hire JMcD. :eek:

    at this point i'd settle for the highest draft pick possible

    the D we have is the worst in the nfl, and will kill us if we're lucky enough to make the playoffs

    You'd think so, but that happened to the Pats last year and it sucked. Every time they played it HAD to be Sunday/Monday night.

    that is one thing i hate about my team, they have no sense of urgency, and they don't show up to non primetiem games, they are pretty undisciplined

    that being said , i don't blame norv, i blame the dcoordinator

    norv's offense has been great this year

    the D is pathetic

    The Chargers are playing for the AFC West or bust. They got next to no shot at the Wild Card in my eyes. I think they have a shot at 8-8 or a slight chance for 9-7, but that is slim now. It all depends on how well the Broncos play the rest of the way. If the Broncos continue to flounder, then the Chargers have a shot at the playoffs.

    It was their Super Bowl. They put all their energy since the offseason just to beat the Pats. It was their mission. They succeeded, but they unfortunately didn't focus their team to win many other games. Add their travel schedule and they could be done already.

    I've said the chargers are overratted since who knows when, and most you you told me I was wrong, and they were a solid team. Yea, ok.

    The Chargers Board must be a hoot right about now.

    Thank you SD for that mid-40 pick that we hopefully don't waste on a wideout.
