SAN DIEGO CHARGERS 2010 OPPONENTS REVEALED
In addition to playing the teams withing their division, the Chargers will also take on the NFC West, which on paper looks to be a very favorable draw. However, the Chargers also have to play the AFC South, a division that includes the always deadly Colts, the physical Titans, and the high-powered Texans:
Home: Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots
Away: Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks, Cincinnati Bengals
Briefly glancing at the opponents, I see at least 11 winnable games... if not more. Anyone care to guess the Chargers 2010 record?
TURNER PLEASED WITH PLAY OF DOMBROWSKI
Brandyn Dombrowski seems to have entrenched himself as the Chargers' starting right tackle, even with the veteran Jon Runyan healthy and available. Coach Turners says he's "very impressed" with the way Dombrowski has been playing. Runyan has been serving as a mentor to Dombrowski, and seems to have no qualms about being a reserve.
I'm not one to argue with the head coach about offensive linemen, but either Norv Turner is easily pleased or the Chargers have had some incredible depth at Right Tackle over the years; Shane Olivea in 2007, Jeromey Clary in 2008, and Brandyn Dombrowski in 2009.
I think Right Tackle is a position that can definitely be upgraded via the draft; am I off-base in that thinking? What do you guys think?
CHARGERS PLAYOFF GAME SET FOR JANUARY 17, 2010
The league has announced the that Chargers will host their division round playoff game in San Diego against either the New England Patriots, Cincinnati Bengals, or the New York Jets.
I think the Jets would be the easiest team of the three, but don't tell that to Shaun Phillips. He tweets, "No one ask us what team do we wanna play Cin or the Jets. If we would rather play one team besides the other. Then we lost already. Bolts."
