Experts have previously unveiled that our beloved San Diego Chargers are at 40:1 odds to win next year’s Superbowl. Wait a second!! The combine is upon us, the gate has yet to be opened for free agency, the draft takes place a few weeks from now, and then comes mini-camp and the pre-season, how can they possibly predict the Chargers or any team for that matter to be favored to win the Superbowl? Teams are incomplete, there are plenty of signings and talent evaluations that need to take place before anyone can truly judge the potential of each franchise. Granted the powerhouse teams from last season will likely be in the running but that doesn’t make any team incapable of making a strong run for the Lombardi trophy. Take the 2011 San Francisco 49ers run all the way to the NFC Championship game. Didn’t see that coming now, did we?
At 40:1, the Chargers are in the middle of the pack of potentials to win it all. I don’t care! 40:1 means nothing to me until Tom Telesco starts drafting young talent and signing key free agents. After that is done, it’s up to Mike McCoy to utilize our new talents to their fullest potential and then it’s Ken Whisenhurst’s time to revitalize our Quarterback. There’s plenty of work to do! I’m going to say an extra prayer for Telesco, he’s going to have to contend with a depleted salary cap, find talent in several areas of the team and evaluate future rookies in the draft. The Chargers have seven rounds to find seven talented players. Then hopefully find a couple of undrafted studs. Good luck Tommy, I believe in you!!!
