The San Diego Chargers jumped up the ladder board in the power rankings. The team is now ranked in at number 6 on the power rankings, up 8 spots from last week. They now rank higher than the Seahawks on the list.

Here is their note on the Chargers:

Big-league win over the Seahawks. How the 34-year-old Antonio Gates still gets open is absolutely, utterly amazing. Can you imagine what his combine numbers would be now? It doesn’t matter; he’s still good and shifty in a way that only the 55-year-old who embarrasses you at the rec center can be. I got this dude wearing the sports goggles from 1985 and the tube socks and the Waylon Jennings concert tee, you think, before he pulls a jump hook with a hairy arm all up in your grill.

Yeah, so that’s what the Seahawks’ linebackers felt like on Sunday … probably.

The Chargers are climbing up the ladder. We have another big game this weekend against the Buffalo Bills. A misstep in this game will knock us right down the power rankings again and put us in a tough spot to start out the year.
