For fans of the San Diego Chargers, it’s a tough time to stay positive. It may be tougher to stay positive as a Chargers fan than any other NFL fan base at the moment.
There is still one game to play this season and then the real questions are going to start. What happens with this team? Where will it be playing next season?
For those of you who are going to abandon ship following a potential move to Los Angeles, I don’t think anyone would fault you for that. However, we’re going to remain positive here at Bolt Beat and look at any positives that we can take from what has been a mostly dreadful season.
That said, for those of you who are willing to follow this team regardless of where it plays or what it is called next year (though we know, that’s a lot to ask) then this list is for you.
Despite being 5-10 and long eliminated from playoff talk, there have still been some bright spots for the Chargers this year. Most importantly, those bright spots can be carried into the future.
Few fans would disagree that this team should be much better than it is. So how do they put it all together? The pieces are there to build upon, as you’ll see below.
