It is Charger week and I think it is about time we beat these guys. I can say we all hate the Raiders, there is nothing more distasteful, disgusting to a Bronco fan than the Raiders. But these Chargers or more specifically Philip Rivers are building our discontent towards them. The Chargers would be easily number 2 on our list of hated and in recent years the battles have been dirty. Whenever we play these two teams there are a lot of penalties and pushing and shoving. I expect this game to be close and hard fought.
I will say this, I hate the Raiders more but I have found it much easier to get material on the Chargers. They are just easier to pay out, the Raiders...well they just suck. So expect a lot of pictures in this one.
A word on Philip Rivers...dude WTF, man am I the only one sick of your crap. Your stupid faces and terrible play?
Oh sweet, I thought I was the only one. (I needed an excuse to use this picture :P)
Match UpsAgain it is Champ Vs Jackson, so far I think Champ has been winning this and I think that will continue.
This will be the first time we see Gates this year. I believe it will be Woodyard or DJ's job to cover him.
The Chargers O-Line is injured and playing backups. Our front 7, mainly Von Doom better have a field day against these guys.
The Chargers are struggling with injuries on both sides of the ball. For the offense I would like to see some better run blocking this week. The unit wasn't very good last week but that was to be expected against a good Jets defense. They should be able to open holes up for Willis to have a big day. Their pass protection was good last game I think they are improving.
Storming Mormon needs some touches!
Inside storyWho would have thought Tim Tebow would be one of the five best fourth-quarter QBs in the NFL, while Philip Rivers would lead the league in fourth-quarter interceptions? Do the Chargers have the will and determination -- to say nothing of the talent -- to stop the Broncos' run-heavy, option attack? The Broncos' pass rush will be a factor against the Chargers' faltering offensive line.

PredictionI said this one will be close expect Tebow to score late and put this game away. I am feeling a 24-14 score line. I think we can get 24 points if not more on this Chargers team. I wonder if they will run the option against the Chargers? Maybe, either way I think Decker, Royal and Thomas are in for a good day.
