As a San Diegan relocating to Chicago, I am glad that my new hometown gets to witness this Sunday what I have been seeing up close and personal as a lifelong Charger backer: a team that finds ways to win games it shouldn't.(Conversely, losing games we should win too).
In 1994 when San Diego defeated the then-dominant Steelers to go to our only Super Bowl (yes, a thrashing by the Niners), we were not expected to win that AFC game either. But our defense held and we squeaked in with some sporadic offense. This time we're not below the radar and I think more than a few folks wanna see the Patriots go down. After all, nobody's perfect, right? We'll see on Sunday. Go Chargers!
[Any recommendations on where to watch the game this Sunday?]

Philip Rivers is the son of a coach. I will always put my money on a kid whose second nature is the sport he plays. People who grow up in a certain environment don't need as much time to process things because they have lived out so many scenarious watching others mistep and mispeak (see: Daly, Mayor).
Rivers may be a trash talking QB but I think he has the smarts AND the arm to back it up most days. Hopefully he'll do it on Sunday.
