Chargers are 15-5 their last 20 games played. They have been good for several years, they have just been arguably the most injury plagued team the past few seasons. Chargers fans are used to guys like Keenan Allen tearing his ACL in the first half of the first game of the season (two years ago) and All-Pro players missing the entirety of the season. Chargers are 6-2 and haven't had their All-Pro starting DE Joey Bosa yet... this team is for real...

Chargers get hot in Late November going into mid December. They are early this season, and doing it low key. Rivers is hungry. Lions fan, here, but I wouldn't mind seeing the Chargers in the Superbowl. They have a shot...

Real talk, I'd like to see a Panthers Chargers Superbowl….I wonder what that would look like...from a Panthers fan......IJS but it would be cool being that for years we were chargers South including Ron Riveria…..and Rivers is a NC guy....I am not going to say it would happen but I'd like to see it

Why is he yelling at Melvin Gordon? He's acting like he's all jazzed up on cocaine, talking about the Chargers from the 1980s.

Stephen A. actually proved why the Bolts are UNDERRATED in his attempt to talk down upon the teams they have beaten. He mentions these "bad teams" yet the Chargers have been a "pick-em" or the "underdog" in 6 of their 8 games this season. Hell, against the Browns just a couple weeks back it was a "pick-em" game according to Vegas and oddsmakers. The Chargers epitomize underappreciated. And btw -- the chargers have BEEN good, they have just been injured. This team is 15-5 their last 20 games...
KC Reviews
KC Reviews:
Chiefs fan here. I'm glad the chargers are challenging us. They are the only team in the NFL that I believe can beat us in Arrowhead. Honest opinion. The Chargers are making me nervous. But I don't think they can stop Mahomes but that's no disrespect. I don't think anybody will stop this offense. But the chargers definitely can compete with us and they can probably beat us.

I remember saying the Eagles aren’t as good as they looked last year because they played some easy teams and their only loss at the time was against the Chiefs. I ate my words later on... Don’t sleep on the Chargers just because they have beaten lower tier teams.
