Tomorrow Could Tell Tale for Bolts

Every Charger fan is aware of what lies ahead for San Diego tomorrow. A division battle against a foe that should have been swept last year. Due to a botched snap the Chargers left Kansas City with a loss. I’m not sure if everyone knows how big this game could be tomorrow. Everything could be locked up after four weeks. So that 2-0 start the Chargers had? That will mean nothing.

If San Diego wins tomorrow they will be 3-1, but more importantly they will be 2-0 in the AFC West. While that happens the Chiefs will go 0-1 in the division and fall to a 1-3 record. San Diego will hold sole position of first place and life will be good. The only problem though is Denver hosts Oakland tomorrow. If Denver loses then they could be off to a really bad start. They would be 1-3 in and 0-1 start in the division. If all the cards fall right the Chargers lose (Chiefs win) and Denver wins (Oakland loses) that great 2-0 start will be gone. Everyone will be 2-2 except the Raiders. Then all three teams who have been picked to win the AFC West will be 2-2. The more room the Chargers can buy, the better.

So what would be the best case scenario for the Bolts tomorrow? A win. It is still young in the season, but this will give the Bolts control of the AFC West for now. If the Chargers win the next 3 weeks the division might be decided as soon as our by week. Although, nothing is normal in the Wild West.

    Oh so true. This is why I would love to see Norv put the lead foot down and not let up on the gas peddle. Open the damn play book up on the offensive side of the ball. As for the D, hit hit hit and shut down Cassle and company.

    However, what O-Line will show up tomorrow? I’ve watched this O-Line be so inconsistent that it’s very shameful at times. Defensively, the talent is there, Pagano needs to put the D in a position to make it happen…

    Go Chargers

    If we get Jared Gaither back, this week or next, we will win the division.

    Oakland lacks depth everywhere and will not finish above .500. KC finally showed something on the defensive side of the ball but still has to contend with the fact that they have Matt Cassel at QB. Denver, while winners of the preseason polls, have showed that Peyton Manning is NOT the same Peyton Manning that he was before the neck injuries.

    Yes, our OL has been terrible. We could easily be 0-3. However our defense and ST won the game in Oakland and Philip came through in week 2. Week 3 Rivers was basically running for his life. But like I said above, with a HEALTHY Jared Gaither in the lineup Philip will be able to do his thing much like last year, especially if Mathews gets back into the flow of the game.

    Gaither’s back will tell the tale of the Boltz and I hope his shoulders are broad enough to bear that burden.

    I know this isn’t exactly the Falcons or the Texans or Patriots…this is the Chiefs. I am confident the Chargers will win and stay at #1 in the West especially if they play like they did against Tennessee and Oakland. Not to mention they did really good in the preseason especially on defense they need to step it up and give Cassel a nice dose of sacks with turnovers on the side lol GO BOLTS!
