Chargers X-Files – I Believe

Last season I went on and on in classic Scully style about what the possible motivation for losing could be (relocation, expansion, etc.).  I was quite perturbed and most of you were as well.   You saw it, the 4th and 29, the unexplained laziness in the fourth quarter, the horrible play calling, the blacked out games that could have been seen live, being told to take a “chill pill” and so much more.

Well, this season I am back, but in this installment of the X-Files, I am the Mulder of the Chargers football franchise.   You have probably noticed the #IBelieve on my Twitter posts and at the end of each of my blogs over the past few months.  Why?  Because I do believe in the Chargers and their ability to win football games.

As Mulder would say, I have seen it before and I know I will see it again.  Did you read my 2013 Bolt Bold Predictions?  If so, you know I am anticipating a season that we have not seen since 2006.  Remember 2006?  Rivers first year as starter, LT setting records and Shottenheimer leading the team to first place in the NFL with a 14-2 record.  The Chargers only fell to the 49ers and Ravens that year.  Then in a heart breaking last minute field goal, lost to the Patriots in the first round of playoffs – at home.  Ugh.

I believe Rivers will not throw double digit interceptions this season.  I believe that Mathews is going to show us why we have kept our faith in him for so long.  I believe we are going to see a secondary that knows how to read an offense – and moves on it.  I believe the Chargers will win.

Join me, believe this is going to be that kind of year.  I believe it.

    Cindi I absolutely love the X Files reference (one of my fav shows EVER)! But I honestly feel like the jilted lover who has the X coming back begging for forgiveness. You want to give in and say yes, but your hesitant until you see proof of change!! #Daring to believe #GoBolts!

    • ChargerGirl Cindi

      LOL, totally. I am giving credit for coaching changes, offseason moves, draft choices and what I have seen in OTA’s. They are trying hard to show us they have changed. Boltup!

      • C.Steele

        All valid points, and truth be told I have already given in. I live in Atlanta GA, and have already bought tickets and planned a trip to San Diego for the Monday Night game against Andrew Luck and the Colts!!!! So Pumped! #EarlyXmas #GoBolts!

          Super fun! That is my daughters birthday and she is coming to the game with me.

          • C.Steele

            LOL! That’s awesome! My Bday is actually in June, but the trip is what I got myself as a “big” present :)

  • ECAVILLE/Ace of Spades

    im gonna be honest and admit that the chargers have the talent to win the superbowl. i hate to say that cuz of how inconsistent we have been and failed to reach expectations so many times even with all these great players. what i believe it comes down to is mccoy making this team more confident with itself and light a fire under their asses. this team has been sleeping for too long and it’s time for mccoy to get them motivated enough to start beating some ass like theyre capable of doing.

    “On their own 10, Rivers drops back to pass. The broncos D is calling an all out blitz but that O-Line isn’t giving them an inch! #17 releases the ball…it’s a rainbow all the way to the 45!!! Alexander beats his man and comes down with it! Wait a minute! He’s not Down yet! Wrestles away and dodges a second defender! He has open space! Feet dont fail me now! He takes it to the 50, the 40, the 30, the 20, the 10, the 5! DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES??? TOUCH DOWN SAN DIEGO SUPER CHARGERS!!!!”
