The latest power rankings from NFL.com went out yesterday and the Chargers moved up a slot. The Chargers are now ranked in at number 21, moving ahead of the Carolina Panthers. Here is their breakdown:

Hate that Melvin Ingram went down, but love the Dwight Freeney signing. He might not be Dwight Freeney circa 2009, but he’ll bring an attitude and a presence that the San Diego Chargers’ defense dearly needed. Remember Sean Jones signing in Green Bay, or Neil Smith in Denver? Guys who can provide leadership and eight sacks off the edge make a difference. The thinking here is that people are way too down on San Diego.

I like that they are finally realizing that the Chargers might be a little underrated by the rest of the league. Finally seeing that the Chargers might have a decent team. There is a lot of new pieces that will need to gel fast, but there is talent.

A more fun note from the power rankings, the Oakland Raiders have moved down a slot in the power rankings, putting them at the very bottom of the list. DEAD LAST!

    Bahahaha at least we’re not dead last bro! Raiders suck! I say we rank better than 21 though.

    Dem Raiders finally slipped lower than the Jags… Lmao! The fact that they named the stadium the Black Hole is very telling.. They just keep sucking, and even the faintest glimmer of light for their season can’t escape the vacuum.

    These rankings don’t mean jack shit. And I honestly prefer to be the underdogs than hyped up. Everytime this team has any kind of hype it steps in dog shit. Two of the last three seasons we were supposedly hot shit, the first season KC ended up winning the division with I forget who their QB was, then the year after we get embarrassed by Timmy Tebow. Hell look at last year, ppl around the league finally gave up on the team but rated Ryan Matthews for having a great year, and we all know how that turned out.

    Symbolism
    Symbol of the person centered on the object and either on himself.
    Number of the perfection by excellence, 3 x 7, according to the Bible.
    Symbol representing the unknown superiors or the great spiritual Masters of the humanity.
    This number “contains the ratios of the principle of individuality 1 with the cosmic differentiation 20″, according to R. Allendy. These ratios would constitute an act of organization – 2 + 1 = 3: “Thus the principle of individuality, placed between the world of the spirit and that the matter, realizes in itself the meeting of both.”
    Represent the harmony of the creation.
    Number representing the union of Trinity, whose result of their common action makes emerge the creation.
    For Claude of Saint-Martin, “the number 21 is the number of destruction or rather of universal termination, because, as 2 is separated from 1, it is necessary that it has a means of to unite there if it wants it. This number shows at the same time the command of the production of things and their end, as well in the spiritual one as in the corporal one.”
    The “21, the highest possible number of 3 in the corporal, is in relation with the spiritual and shows the quality of the renewal”, according to Eckartshausen.
    Number representing the maturity and the responsibility for an individual. It expresses also the notion of chief.
    It is the numbered representation of God and the Temple, and for this reason it is considered by the esoteric texts as a divine number or sacred.
    21 AIN’T SO BAD LOL

    The Raider destroyer was #21 Ladanian Tomlinson. It is only right that The Bolts rank 21 and The Raider last. Don’t want to be ranked better than 21. Its better that we go in underestimated.

    What…were not #1 –
    Sometimes one middle finger isn’t enough to let someone know how you feel. That’s why you have two hands

  • Alter Ego

    I can’t see the positive in being # 21 – I can see this creating a lot of tension between me and God though.

  • arnie

    Good, at least things are looking up, but we all know the Chargers are better than that. This is the “playing it safe ranking”. Nobody wants to step out onto that limb. yet…
