Chargers primed for second half run?


The last time the Chargers were home, they held an opponent to 10 points.

Ted Cottrell’s defense was being praised, and the New England Patriots had their collective heads between their tales.

My, how times have changed.

Cottrell is no longer defensive coordinator of the Chargers; head coach Norv Turner has been very defensive of his move to make Ron Rivera his coordinator.

Has it really been nearly a month since the Chargers won their last home game by beating New England, 30-10?

Yes … and it has also be that long since the Chargers won a game.

Say hello to the downtrodden Kansas City Chiefs.

This game could be a landslide compared to what Barack Obama experienced this week.

The Chiefs can’t stop the run. Their top two quarterbacks are injured. Their most talented running back is suspended.

And, yet, one still can’t forget how Kansas City came in here and embarrassed the Chargers last season, 30-16.

The Chargers remember. That was when San Diego fans chanted “Mar-ty, Mar-ty,” in remembering fired coach Marty Schottenheimer and his 14-2 record from 2006.

Are the Chargers ready to make a second-half run like last season, or will the fans want to run them out of town again this weekend?

Predictions:
Chargers 34, Chiefs 13
Brigham Young 55, San Diego State 10

The Chargers will begin their second half run to the playoffs against Kansas City this weekend. Our running game will dominate and the playoffs will be in their future. Go Chargers.

The Chargers sure seem to be in bad shape; they truly need to get their act together. It seems like they just can't seem to put it all together. Hopefully they will play well enough to at least make the playoffs. With the division they are in that won't be too hard.
