The Chargers and their players are one of the top-tier teams heading into 2019, but have been repeatedly disrespected all offseason.

The Chargers are a previously 12-4 team, right? Featuring a future Hall of Fame quarterback, one of the best offenses and defenses, and (believe it or not) an exciting special teams unit? Did the Chargers enter some alternate dimension where they play in a different city, league, or world? Because they’ve been disrespected repeatedly this offseason, and it’s getting annoying.

Start with the most recent error:

Something seems off…oh wait, the Los Angeles Chargers aren’t on there. Funny that ESPN remembers an irrelevant Angels team, or a Lakers team that won less playoff games last year than the Chargers. And before the Chargers playing in Carson is used as an excuse, why are the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim included? It’s either one of two things: The media producer completely forgot about the Chargers, or they purposefully did this to generate attention. Both are inexcusable reasons to leave off a Super Bowl contender.

Yes, the Chargers have not won a Super Bowl in their entire history with the NFL. It essential they win a championship soon to be taken seriously around the league. But they’re far from a bad team, with an awful history of losing like many other NFL teams; give them some respect.
