Last week, put out their power rankings and they put us at the bottom third of the league and in the cellar of the AFC West. RIDICULOUS! Philip Rivers has one bad season and they forget our awesomeness.

This week, ESPN put out their rankings and put us smack dab in the middle of the pack with a ranking of 15th. That puts us in 2nd in the AFC West behind the Donkeys. At least this power ranking is a little more reasonable.

Here is the comment they left for the Bolts:

The Chargers look to have had a very solid draft, and I’m expecting a big bounce back from Philip Rivers. (Kuharsky)

It is interesting to see that the Donks slid 2 spots since the last time they made power rankings. Their draft must not have impressed the people of ESPN. Let that slide down the power rankings continue!
