We are still working on that respect thing. Respect is born from reputation, and reputation is something that must be earned and built over time. We started earning national respect when we played teams like NE and Carolina tough.
Losing to the Chargers is a possiblity. They have Ladanian Tomlinson and we have the worst run defense in the NFL until proven otherwise. This is a tough league and the worst team in the league can beat the best team on a given Sunday. Heck, we won our first game ever. I don't think I'd worry too much if they beat us Sunday. I don't expect it, but I've seen stranger things happen.
