The media, however, continues to doubt the legitimacy of the San Diego Chargers as Super Bowl contenders. This is a team that has beaten up on the Colts and has beaten the Patriots in Foxboro before. The Chargers will not go into the game next Sunday feeling like they don't deserve to be on the same field as the Pats. They won't be over their heads. But the betting line is already at around 15 1/2 points with the Chargers being the underdogs. And all the media talking heads are already crowing New England as a 19-0 team.
I guess the Chargers winning 48 games (counting the playoffs) in the past four years doesn't mean much right? I guess winning all those games with two different quarterbacks isn't impressive? And nevermind mentioning the fact that the team has gone through two different coaching staffs in two years and find themselves right back in the playoffs. And not only that, but they've won two playoff games in a row.
Keep doubting the Chargers. Keep giving them no respect. They'll use it as fuel to their fire and they'll walk into Foxboro with a chip on their shoulders and something to prove.
