Something I didn't know about the Chargers this season...

From a post on the Chargers MSG board "Scouting Report" for this weekends game...

"The Chargers look for their first win against the NFC South this season, as they enter the game 0-3 with losses to the Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.".

Also, from a fans post...

"Looks like its going to be cold and rainy Sunday. I hope that means Phil will be wearing gloves again." - I guess he wore gloves last week in PA against the Steelers... So, they are 1-0 going "David Carr" style.

Some more fun facts:

[quote]Norv Turner will coach his 100th-career game for the Chargers (playoffs included) on Sunday when the Chargers host Carolina. [/quote]

[quote]The Chargers and Panthers have met just four times and Carolina leads the series, 3-1. They haven’t met since a 26-24 win by Carolina in San Diego in the 2008 season opener. The Bolts lone win in the series was a 17-6 decision in Charlotte in 2004.[/quote]

[quote]The Chargers need three regular-season victories to reach 400 all-time.[/quote]
Here's hope'n the Panthers can notch a win Sunday in SD, and have to make them wait for next season for that win.

Here is the thread I was reading: [url="http://forums.chargers.com/showthread.php?t=96725"]http://forums.chargers.com/showthread.php?t=96725[/url]

This might be a fun game to watch.

Here's another thing that a lot of people may not be aware of

The last time we played the Chargers, we were relevant.

True, but we also had Rasiro for a TE... and Jake.

We can go here all day. they had LT if I recall, and we had Chris Harris... LOL

Why all the "well back then we had" crap?

No one expected us to win that game in SD the last time either.

Rosario had a great game if I remember correctly. Caught the winning td. He was a pretty decent receiving tight end at one time.

What I remember most about the last CAR/SD game is "Our 45 is better than their 45." from Norv... He was wrong....

And as of this time, he's a Charger.

We'll be playing against him on Sunday.

We have the advantage, Chud knows Chargers entire playbook and I'm sure Ron knows what confuses Rivers.

SD home opener, 2 seconds left, Jake must score a TD to win, hits Rosario in the back of the end zone with a fingertip catch gutting every SD fan alive.

The Chargers fans reaction if anyone remembers this 4 years ago:

I'm hope'n that we get a few sacks on Rivers early and rattle him a bit.

Getting him shook early should be a big focus for the beginning of the game... and also as soon as we come back from halftime.
