Chargers record predictions
Record: 11-5 The Chargers improved through the draft and added depth at crucial positions. I predicted 11-5 prior to the draft and am sticking at the number. The big variable that in my opinion could really move the record up or down is the offensive line. Should they perform better than last season, I would move that record up. Other than that, the Chargers are pretty loaded at most positions on both offense and defense. The other crucial aspect for the squad is the one possession game record. The Bolts were 6-1 last year in one score games and came out on the right side of nail biting finishes, which is something they had not done in a while. With more depth and talent added this offseason, if the team can keep up their clutch play, the team’s almost a lock for at least 10 wins.
The Chargers should will finish with 10-6 record for the upcoming season. There’s still time to add players from now until the beginning of the regular season but with how the current schedule is laid out, the Chargers face stiff competition from the likes of Vikings, Bears, Jaguars, and others. As of right now, I have the team going 10-6, as their schedule is much more difficult than last year’s.
I have the Chargers starting the season on a 7 win streak. I have them dropping a game against the Chiefs, a game against the Broncos, and the Week 8 tilt at Chicago. That may sound a bit optimistic, knowing the Chargers constant early season struggles, but I’m convinced this is a different team. Last season, they came back from a double digit deficit at the Heinz Field and at Arrowhead. The Chargers were usually in the losing side of those games, but their ASAP (Any Squad Any Place) mentality has turned this team into winners.
