ESPN recently conducted a poll question on their site asking “Will the Chargers make the playoffs this season” and here is what the results looked like:
I don’t think they like our chances! Over 12,000 votes and 73% of fans said that the Chargers would not see the playoffs this season. We didn’t even get any love in California on that poll!
For the past few years we came into the season as the top dog in the AFC West. Peyton Manning finds a new address and we get kicked off the top of the totem pole. We are the underdogs now and it is time to get back that respect around the country. The focus around the league will be on the Broncos and we will fly by under the radar.
