San Diego Chargers: Playoffs…? You talking about playoffs!?!

Yes Charger fans (and Jim Mora), we’re talking about the playoffs and why not!? The Chargers are sitting at 4-3 right now in the AFC (good for the last AFC wildcard spot), have won two in a row coming into their bye week and have handled a Colts team at home that just took care of the previously undefeated Denver Broncos.

San Diego Chargers: Three reasons the Bolts might fail

The San Diego Chargers have for years been a team loaded with talent.  Yet most seasons, they disappoint the fans and fall short in the playoffs (and sometimes don’t even make it that far).  This year is no different.  The Bolts still have great players on both the offense and the defense, as well as young talent that will look to prove itself in the NFL.  If everything goes...

Chargers’ Ryan Matthews is a bust

San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Matthews is a bust and I mean in the nicest way possible. This is why we need to look at the facts to get this fact into Charger fan heads. The assessment is not based on his injury history, because that alone would make him a bust, but it’s based on his production on the field.
