That's an absolutely fair point and worth noting.

The Bengals that year where easily the worst team in the NFL and deep down they knew it. A loss to the Texans would have been a terrible thing to them at the time because it's one thing to be the worst team in the NFL and it's even worse than that to lose to an expansion team playing it's first season while you're the worst team in the NFL. The Bengals reached down deep inside themselves and pulled out a butt-kicking. The same butt-kicking that every team in the league is capable of delivering if the circumstances are right. Nobody is a sure thing in this league.

Two years later I don't think that San Diego is going to be in that kind of situation. They're not going to be favored to win but they aren't going to be facing an "ultimate insult" kind of situation either. Can they beat us in the opener. Oh yeah. No doubt about it. Will they beat us in the opener. I personally don't believe so.

The Texans come into openers well prepared with a solid game plan. They have had success on opening day against tougher opponents than this. They have some favorable matchups that can be exploited in this game. They're no longer an expansion team and can't fall back on that label/excuse (as if they ever did). They'll show up with 70,000 screaming fans behind them and take care of business.

I stand my ground on this. The Texans will win this game and the one after it. They will enter Arrowhead Stadium 2-0 and from that point forward we'll just have to see what happens.

Nothing is for sure, and if we fans know it - the team will for sure know it; especially on the season opener. SD's secondary is no slouch, and Drew Brees is playing with purpose, and most of us agree that LT could be the very best talent in the league - and maybe before it is over, of all time. We will have to do what it will take to win, and I look for a great contest that will go 'til the clock stops! I believe our Line and Davis will control the time of possession, and Carr and the recievers will show they have stepped things up. Our defense should get pressure on Brees, and load up on "sack killing drives." We have to watch out for penalties - and in the end, Chad Stanley, and Kris Brown will give us the edge for another opening season victory, and a jump out front to the rest of the division.

Maybe he thinks the Chargers have a good chance. Maybe hes on crack. Who knows. But he is entitled to his opinion. Thats why I made the poll.

My money's on the crack... But there ain't no sure wins in the NFL, so SD does indeed have a chance.

Heck, I saw a guy on the CNNSI website today who wrote in to one of their columnists to let him know that the Chargers were PLAYOFF-bound. Uh, speaking of controlled substances....
