Odds to win the 2014 Superbowl

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!!!

    Odds can’t take in the mental wealth that Telesco and McCoy will bring to unit a great group of atheletes who need a whole lot of leadership to put them back in their rightful place in the NFL. These talking heads are the same guys that thought Merriman was our answer when Phillips was truely the guy they needed. If Telesco and Mcoy can instill a winning as one attitude into the great players we have, and can use these players to their strenghths, the Chargers are no less at odds of winning a Superbowl as any other team.
    Strength comes from a inner desire to help elevate the people around you to be their best, today, and the rest of their life. Telesco needs to be available to all players to help anyone of them rebuild the fractures in their personnal lives. Then and only then does McCoy get the best from his players. This also goes to all the players, the strong ones Vet’s or Rookies that have the leadership potential need to let it be known their there for their teamates. The ones that have their demons need to open up and ask for help, if they do it can turn lives around as well as the players themselves. FAMILY
