Default Chargers weak Schedule

I was looking at the Chargers schedule this year and it appeared pretty weak to me.
What are your thoughts???

Their regular season schedule was a cake-walk compared to ours. Other than the Patsies, NO and of course Indy in the first round of the playoffs, they won against garbage teams and lost to teams that either made the playoffs or had winning records.

I still never take any team lightly and though I strongly believe the Steelers will have the W come Sunday night, the Bolts are going to try to put up a fight. We need to crush their momentum and take them out of the game early.

You know weak schedule or not every team becomes a different kind of animal in the playoffs.
Pats were on regular season win that was impressive, but you can see the desperation with the win Against Indy at home, and they have become a threat bad record or not.

KC twice and Oakland twice = Cincy Twice and Cleveland twice for us. So that's 4 games that are "cake" each.

NFC South was tough. Carolina, Atlanta, New O and Tampa were equal to the NFC East to me, Wash, Dallas, Philly and Giants.

So that's 10 equal games in my eyes.

That leaves 6 More.

AFC East vs AFC South.

Miami, NE, Buffalo and Jets. All but Buffalo had a serious shot at the playoffs. vs Jacksonville, Indy, Tennessee and Houston.

I say that about equals out as well.

Then there are the 2 we had vs baltimore and 2 they had against Denver. Those 2 were much tougher for us, but Denver is a rivalry game so you can't discount it.

That leaves their 2 games against the winners of the AFC South and AFC North vs our 2 games vs the AFC East winner and the AFC West winner.

We played SD and NE, they Played Indy and Pittsburgh.

You could argue those equal out.

So the way I see it, they had a very tough road, but since they did have to play US and Denver twice, that's about the only difference I really see.

Pretty good schedule for them. But just not as tough as ours because we had Baltimore twice.

Still, they ended up 8-8. Yes, we lost 4 games. But Pittsburgh did what good teams are supposed to do......beat the bad teams. The only game we looked awful in was the Philly game and the other 3 we could have won had a few things gone our way. And those 3 were the Giants, The Colts and the Titans. Not shabby teams.

Weak schedule or not, they are in the playoffs and playing good football - I'll give them that much but sooner or later that roller coaster has to crash.

I belive that crash happens in Pittsburgh Sunday night.

I posted this somewhere in another thread but will say it again......our schedule ended up 5th hardest and Chargers ended up 12th hardest. Those are the facts.

so, while, yes, of course we played a tougher schedule, they didn't play the cake wake schedule that people seem to think they did. The difference of course is that we won those games against good opponents while they lost many of them. However, they almost always lost by close margins so it's a mistake to think they can't hang with top quality teams.

the Titans and Patriots on the other hand ? 25th and 26th hardest, they had easy roads.

AMEN to that!

put them out of their misery early with ben's arm and grind 'em with the running game in the second half... then let willie do his thing with sean mchugh in the backfield after we jump out to a sizeable lead... that was the staple of the our superbowl team and 04 team and IMO a 15-1 season and a superbowl ring the next season wasn't too bad!
