The San Diego Chargers are still in the hunt for the playoffs. It is crazy, but we are still there. We have struggled with all kinds of things this season and the roster has been an eye sore on Sundays, but the team is competing and keeps finding different ways to lose games. Every time the team builds up a bit of hope for the playoffs, it gets smashed right back down with a devastating loss. The rest of the league just continues to play pitiful and it is allowing us to hang around.

How bad is it?

If the season ended today, we would be the 12th pick in the draft. The Steelers would be the 10th pick in the draft and we hold the same exact record as they do. Yet we are one game away from the playoffs.

Whatever we do from this point forward, we should be really good at it. If we win, let’s win the rest of the way out. If we lose, we should lose the rest of the way out. Might as well be good at one of them!

A top 10 draft pick would be kind of nice. The team has a ton of holes that need stars in them. A top 10 selection could bring in a nice prize.  I will not root for losses, but every miscue gets us closer to a possible top 10 selection.
