Why Charger Fans should hope for an Eagles Home Opener


First off, I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Ryan Pedersen and for those of you who are reading this, you are just as starved as I am to see this franchise become a winner again. I very much so enjoy football and writing about it. My favorite quote about me comes from the late great Steve Sabol, who said “Life is great. Football is better.”

So why not start off on a positive heading into the 2013 offseason with hopefully some early luck.

According to ESPN’s NFL Live on Feb 5th, the Ravens are the latest team to win the Super Bowl after facing the Philadelphia Eagles at their home opening game. The last three teams (Saints 09’, Packers 10’, Giants 11’) and the Ravens, all faced the Eagles at their home openers and all have won the Super Bowl that season.

One of the eight teams on this seasons home schedule for the Eagles is in fact, the San Diego Chargers. Others on their schedule are the AFC West foes Kansas City Chiefs (Now coached by Andy Reid). So does that mean it’s all Chiefs and Chargers going into next season for the AFC West? Not if Peyton’s still around. Hey, four years in a row of this stat, you can’t help to feel a little better after a disastrously below average season in 2012.

Pure luck, right? Heck, we could use some luck around here.

    I will take it… Bring on those Eggles… But what of the luck is carried by the team that is going against Andy Reid? We can hope for a Chiefs opener then.

    Luck doesn’t win championships, players and coaching do. Were all waiting to see what this management team comes up with.
    We feel that the moves that Dean Spanos made are good ones but we don’t know what the results of these hirings will bring. We just have to wait and see.
    Wait. We’ve been dong that for alot of years in San Diego. Maybe you’re right. Maybe we just need more luck.
