Ranking The Chargers 2012 Opponents


The regular season schedule should be coming out in a couple of weeks, but we already know who the opponents will be this season. With all the moves that have been done already in free agency, let’s rank these games. Here are the opponents for 2012:

Home: Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Tennessee Titans, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers

Away: Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, New York Jets, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Here is my ranking for the games that I can’t wait to see this season:
1. Denver Broncos
The most intriguing games of the season will be against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. They will probably be picked by the experts to win the division and we want that crown.

2. Pittsburgh Steelers
This matchup has been tough for us and the games usually get ugly. Troy Polamalu finds a way to make something spectacular happen against us every time. Always a hard hitting matchup.

3. New Orleans Saints
Bounties or not, there should be some fireworks on offense in this game. We get to see Drew Brees and Darren Sproles on the opposite side of the field and it should be fun.

4. New York Jets
Tim Tebow or Mark Sanchez? No clue who will be the starting quarterback will be when we play them, but they have been a thorn in our side for a while. We need to shut Rex Ryan up this time.

5. Baltimore Ravens
Last time we met it was a MASSACRE. We destroyed them and our offense was on a roll. Hopefully we can make big things happen again.

6. Oakland Raiders
Always a big game against the black and silver. Let’s see what the new coaching staff brings.

7. Kansas City Chiefs
Young team that has been raising their expectations year after year. We want that sweep, but they have made it very difficult for us the last couple of seasons.

8. Carolina Panthers
Cam Newton and Mike Tolbert. Cam is an exciting player to watch and our defense better find a way to contain him. This is one time we don’t want to see Tolbert dancing!

9. Atlanta Falcons
The Burner Turner will be coming to town and they have Julio Jones and Roddy White out there also. That will be a tough offense to slow down. CRAP!

10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
They wouldn’t be this high on the list, but they did sign Vincent Jackson. Quentin Jammer vs VJ… awww CRAP!

11, Cincinnati Bengals
Quentin Jammer vs AJ Green… even bigger AWWWW CRAP!!! AJ Green is a monster!

12. Tennessee Titans
Is Eddie George still there?

13. Cleveland Browns
They might move up the list if they get Trent Richardson in the draft. Otherwise, who cares!

Which game are you most excited to see this season?

    lets just pray we get a pass rush so jammer wont have those AWWW Crap games. even though he is old and his hands are like basketballs with no grip. if we get a pass rush we may see him in that corner spot a few more years. no pass rush this year, jammer gets cut next year.

    As of right now, I see the Chargers at 9-7 at the end of the year. Until I see what they do in the draft, that’s what I’m predicting. Any takers?

       @RMainwaring hmmm… where are your wins and losses? that is a good guess though… hoping for the over

         @epadaon I had the wins and losses but my comment turned into an article so I cut it short. I can still give my wins and losses and the reasons behind them if you want. Maybe I should be an article.

         @epadaon When I first wrote the comment, it turned into an article so I cut it short. I gave the wins and losses and my reasons behind them. Still want to hear them?
