Oh my goodness…. I thought it would take beating sweeping through the next 4 weeks to put us on top of the power rankings, but it took a completely dominating performance over the New York Jets to put us at the top of the power rankings.

Check out the NFL.com power rankings and look who is sitting on top of the world. I know a lot of people like to play the underdog role, but I love sitting on the top. The players on this team will automatically take the underdog role. That is the way that we have been winning these games. The players keep fighting for respect.
If/when they catch hold of this, they are going to hear that the Chargers don’t deserve to be sitting on the top and that opens up another opportunity for us to fight for more respect. We are forever underdogs even though we are sitting at the number 1 spot.
The view up here is pretty nice. Let’s stay on top till the end of the year.
Here is the commentary on the Chargers:
A collective holding of the breath after Philip Rivers banged his finger on his own lineman on a simple follow-through. Luckily, he’s fine — as is his game. Some of the plays Rivers made Sunday were just ridiculous, whether it was shaking off a sack and converting a third-and-17 or delivering an absolute dime of a touchdown pass to Antonio Gates. #stillMVP
