Chargers 2013 Season Bold Predictions ~ Games 14 thru 17


Well, here we are at the end of the season in great shape.  The Chargers have not been at 11-1 at week 14 since 2006! They came close in 2009 and were 10-3, ending that season 13-3.  That is a long dry spell and just to give you some perspective this was back when Marty Schottenheimer was at the helm and he led the Bolts to a 14-2 record.  The Chargers were #1 in the AFC West and then lost to the Patriots in the divisional playoffs.  This was also the year that LT let the league in rushing with 1,815 yards, as well as setting NFL single-season records for rushing touchdowns (28) and total touchdowns (31). (ah, the memories)  So, what’s happening in December, 2013?

Week 14 – Sunday, December 8th @ 1:25PM vs. Giants – Home game.  Bolts win in a nail biter that will be sure to send many NFL analysts into a tailspin.  Look for lots of penalties in the 4th by the Giants who will start getting frustrated and possibly a temper tantrum by our little friend Eli Manning.  These Manning brothers certainly are a pain in the arse.  Record 12-1

Week 15 – Thursday, December 12th @ 5:25PM vs. Broncos – Away game.  The Broncos will be looking for payback, but thin air and free samples at Colorado’s fancy new “coffee” houses will not get the Bolts down.. or will it.  This one came down to a coin toss for me.  If Manning is healthy the Broncos may even the record on this one.  Record 12-2

Week 16 – Sunday, December 22nd @ 1:25PM vs. Raiders – Home game.  What can I say, home game against the Raiders?  The Raiders will be coming in to this game either in last place or tied for it with the Chiefs.  Chargers will win this game and sweep the series.  Look for a record number of arrests and revenue for King Stahlman this week.  Record 13-2

Week 17 – Sunday, December 29th @ 1:25PM vs. Chiefs – Home game.  The Chiefs will be coming to San Diego with a big chip on their shoulder.  Looking for one last win of their hapless season, but they will go home grumpy and head straight for the first BBQ restaurant they see after departing the plane.  Record 14-2

With the regular season over and the Chargers in first or tied for first in the AFC they will be headed to the playoffs for the first time in a long time.  Time to zip the lips of the disbelievers and make room for the band wagon gang.  This will be the Bolts first 14-2 season since the above mentioned 2006 season.  Do you remember that 14-2 was the best record in the NFL that year?  It was, and the Chargers got robbed by the Patriots (24-21), something that I am very comfortable predicting will not be happening this year.

    I like the confidence but let’s be realistic here and say the chargers win between 9-11 games this coming season.

    I believe you are drinking the Kool-Aid laced with ignorant; I do not think anyone could be as delusional as Joey Nicks and his prediction of last season at 13-2. You have out done him and even those that ventured a bold prediction of nine and seven.
    14-2 unbelievable that anyone would put their name on that.

      You need a hug dude! I get that you have been a Bolt fan longer than I have simply due to the fact that you were born a few years earlier. And I get that the decades of disappointment start to take their toll. But I start every single season with the right attitude. You are taking the easy path by saying the Bolts will not fair well. I am wrong almost every year, but I’m happy. So, you gotta ask yourself, would you rather be right and grumpy or wrong and happy?

    Try reading what I said; you are delusional. You have completely ignored the Chargers talent level. Your rantings make some fans think there will be a miraculous turn around. This is not Jim Harbaughs 49ers, who were loaded with talent when he took over. Post a credible prediction and I will get behind it.
