Chargers Heading To Foxboro And Still Get No Respect

The Chargers have finally found it is takes to win in the playoffs and are heading to Foxboro next Sunday as they advance to the AFC Championship game. After a hard fought battle against the defending champs Indianapolis Colts, the Chargers will again head out on the road and will look to avenge their losses against the powerful New England Patriots.

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.

lets give billy volek the start-he was the sparkplug, and will keep his head in the game, unlike phillip who showed 0 class.

Nobody beats New England in New England in the playoffs. As good as the Chargers are, they're not good enough.
Oh wait - they won 2 whole playoff games in a row?! Wow! Nevermind - people should be crowning them instead of the Pats!
What, oh what will L.T. whine about after this next loss?

Hey anoymous...The Chargers are the team which are fighting for a championship...but that's not it, they are fighting for respect too...I believed the Patriots already had and they need be more classy such as LT. ESPECIALLY after they have 3 rings and an undefeated season..Look at Belichick he is one of the most respected coach but some of his players are classless Like Hobbs AND the spygate scandal.
Rivers is just being tough like Jim McMahon from the Bears. And LT is not whining for the next loss he is just being classy and showing a little toughness too....I like that.... Well i guess u need to show some sportsmanship too....JERK!
