I know a ton of you don’t even want to think about the playoffs. I have already seen a few of you say that we should tank the rest of the season, because we are not going anywhere. After all the smoke and dust from yesterday, the Chargers are still in the hunt for a playoff spot.

The Titans lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars yesterday, so they didn’t gain any ground on the playoffs. We all are still looking at the New York Jets as the top spot for the playoffs. The Miami Dolphins play tonight and they need a win to keep pace with the Jets and for some reason I think Tampa will get their first win of the year tonight.

It is not time to lose hope just yet. Our schedule is tough, but I still believe that we can make a run. There was a solid half in which the Chargers offense slowed down the Broncos, There was an awakening that the Chargers can run the ball for 1-yard first downs or touchdowns.
