SAN DIEGO CHARGERS HISTORY & INFORMATION

2009 San Diego Chargers Football Preview:

On paper the San Diego Chargers are one of the best teams in the NFL. Quarterback Philip Rivers, future hall of fame running back LaDainian Tomlinson and perennial Pro Bowl tight end Antonio Gates. So what’s not to like about the Bolts? Not much, except that San Diego has yet to make it to Super Bowl with their current collection of talent. They have won their division for three straight years and have won some games in the playoffs, but their last AFC Championship was in 1994. This San Diego team is too talented to fall short of the Super Bowl, the team’s motto for 2009 should be “Super Bowl or Bust.” Coach Norv Turner should turn the Chargers loose on offense and then ride linebacker Shawne Merriman’s defense all the way to Miami.
