The Jets are overrated. And the Chargers are going nowhere this year. Rivers is exposed, no WR's, and Norv Turner is their coach. Nothing else needs to be said. But like a good team, the Pats destroyed them. They will be a tough challenge.
I really think its a little early to be writing off the Chargers - I know im not.
Every team has a flaw of some description - the Chargers have attempted to address the WR position through the draft and it normally takes while for them to get up to speed, more so than any other position.
Rivers is no Grossman - I think he still has plenty of potential but he and LT need a little time to get accustomed to the changes that a new HC brings.
The thing is, you start writing off the Chargers...then you have to ask who the good teams are in the AFC.
Who is going to beat the Chargers to the AFCW?
The Bronco's have looked very ordinary and KC is on the downswing...the Raiders surely aren't close.
The fact of the matter is that the Chargers have played (arguably) the best team from each conference in their first two games - compare that to the Steelers opposition who are both extremely unlikely to reach the postseason.
Its too early to jump to conclusions based on such a wide range of opposition.
Mark my words, San Diego will make the playoffs.
