The San Diego Chargers Will Not Be Intimidated By The Broncos

The San Diego Chargers have been giant killers all season long. They have knocked off some of the best team in the league and that includes a win in Denver against the Broncos.

The Broncos are our division rival and the game is going to be close. They always are. The Chargers beat up on them twice a year and they know what it takes to go up against Peyton Manning. They won’t be standing in awe of the Hall of Fame quarterback. They will be ready to punch him right in the mouth (or forehead).

The Chargers have confidence that they can go on the road and beat the Broncos. They have done it already this season and will be prepped to do it again. Philip Rivers has beaten Peyton twice already in the playoffs. Philip also holds a 6-2 record in Denver. He likes it out there.

On the other side of the field, the Broncos likely would have rather faced off against the Cincinnati Bengals in this round. They know that the Chargers are playing loose and they know that the Chargers have a lot of things going in their direction. They know all about the Chargers and they know that we will not go down without a big time fight.

Having Mike McCoy calling the shots for the Bolts adds even more confidence to the Chargers sideline. He knows the Broncos just a little bit. He has been with that organization since 2009 before he signed on as our head coach. He had worked under Broncos head coach John Fox in Carolina before they even went to Denver. McCoy is very familiar with what goes on in that locker room. He will have the guys prepared.

There will be a quiet confidence with our group going into Denver. The Chargers know all about the Denver fans and the city. They also know what it feels like to leave that city with wins. This Sunday’s will be the biggest of them all.

    Beat the Donkey’s!!!

    They should be intimidated. Manning has beaten the Chargers 3 of 4 times since becoming a donkey. He owns SD when he’s in Orange, and one off game on a Thursday night should only be viewed as a minor glitch.

    If you think we’re going to get lucky and Denver is going to turn the ball over four or five times like the Bengals did last week, you’re kidding yourself. The only way we win is by beating their offense, and unlike the last game when they didn’t have Welker and J Thomas for the entire game, they are healthy this time around.

    If SD isn’t intimidated, they’re not seeing this game correctly.

      A helathy respect for the Broncos, this they should have.

      Confidence that they can play with them and even beat them on their turf – this they should have, obviously.

      Should they be intimidated by the Broncos – NO WAY!

      Tyson won many of his fights before he stepped foot into the ring due to the intimidation factor. Buster Douglas and many after him were not intimidated and we saw the baddest man on the planet defeated.

      Moral of the story, never go into a fight intimidated!

    • Stefanie Smith

      Intimidation results in fear and fear festers weakness. No, cowtowing and groveling because we are intimidated by our opponent–not a successful formula to win a game.

      Manning has thrown the 2nd most INT’s aganst the Chargers in his carrer. Our defense has greatly improved since the last meeting. Melvin Ingram is in the line up. Do the math.

      Let me see If I can clear things up. Chargers Controlled the clock in both games, and held Manning to a season low in points. Chargers Kicked field goals in the first, lost. Scored TD’s in the second game, picked off Manning, forced three straight 3-n-out’s and won. broncos D lost the best pass rusher. Chargers D is gotten healthier and become “Pick Magnets”.
      Yes I see things clearly. A trend. The Chargers WINNING, and the broncos left wondering what happened.

      take a look at Rivers record in Donkey land!! What is it like 7-2. And don’t act like you guys ain’t nervous on facing my Bolts suckas cuz you know that’s a lie. and take a look at how many winning teams you guys played vs this year and won. and look at our records winning teams. Wehave NO pressure on us. according to many idiots we weren’t supposed to make this far. and when we win Sunday get ready to make excuses.

  • Stefanie Smith

    Man, I am praying Mathews is ready to roll on Sunday. We really need him at least for part of the game.

    swagger, they walk with a swagger right now. I think that this game will come down to the two D Lines and turn overs. The road to the super bowl requires some luck and good fortune, but the team that harbors that luck can ride it to the big dance. I believe in the BOLO…. BOLT UP!!!
