Time to look at the power rankings again. I guess it is that time of the week. This is going to be the highest that the San Diego Chargers have been on those power rankings all season and we still have some room to rise.

The Chargers ranked in at number 7 on the power rankings this week. We actually are not at the bottom of all the teams that are remaining in the playoffs now. We are gaining our respect a little bit at a time. We actually rank higher than Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts.

We rose 6 spots this week. Here is the commentary off of NFL.com:

San Diego leapfrogs the Colts on the strength of five straight wins and a defense that has finally started playing. While Indy allowed a badly banged-up Chiefs team to score 44 points at Lucas Oil, the Chargers triumphed on the road after forcing Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton to make repeated mistakes. The way San Diego offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt uses his running backs is a football work of art, and the rotation was outstanding again last weekend. This club needs Ryan Mathews healthy and ready to go — and Mathews says he will be.

After 4 quarters, we could find ourselves in the top 4 of this list. Rising to the top!

    The Chargers are the Rodney Dangerfield of the NFL. They get almost no respect. They are on a mission right now and it shows in the intensity of their play. No one wants to play the San Diego Super Chargers, they definitely won’t admit it though.
