Today we tackle the San Diego Chargers cheerleaders and superfans. Like most of you, we are itching for football season to start. In the midst of the dog days of summer, many get sick of baseball and start turning their attention to football. Don’t blame you a bit. To help quench your thirst, BC is going on a 32 team, 32 day, 32 gallery tour of NFL cheerleaders & superfans.

The Chargers missed out on the playoffs in the 2011 season. Will 2012 see Philip Rivers and the Chargers struggling again?

The Chargers added some nice players, but can wide receivers Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal really duplicate the production that was lost when Vincent Jackson left for Tampa Bay? Sure those guys can put up numbers, but Jackson has special stuff that might be tough to replace.

Philip Rivers is another guy, like Tony Romo, that just can’t seem to get over the hump. They’ve been on plenty of playoff runs, but when it comes to the big game, Rivers seems to get overwhelmed. He’s been having interception issues lately and it will be interesting to see if Rivers can take a big step forward this year after missing the playoffs in 2011.
