A U-T San Diego editorial over the weekend called on the next mayor and other city and county leaders as well as members of the public to build a new football stadium for the San Diego Chargers.
Here is a portion of the U-T San Diego editorial:
Chargers in a "do or die" situation as they travel to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs. The majority of the country has the Bolts as an underdog in this contest as they go against one of the premiere defenses in all the land. While KC's defense has been stout all season long, their offense is nothing to write home about. Alex Smith is a game manager, Jamaal Charles is electric out of the backfield, but the offense is rather pedestrian. Is an upset in the cards?
Chargers got a small shot in the arm this week as Melvin Ingram returned to practice. Out since the start of 2013 with a torn ACL, Ingram has finally joined his teammates and he's ready to get back in the fight. At 4-6 and needing a ton of help just to make it to the playoffs, should the Chargers shut Ingram down for the remainder of the season or see what they can get out of him? It's a delicate situation given his injury and his overall healthy, but there is no denying that San Diego's defense needs all the help they can get. Is the risk worth the reward?
Chargers dropped a game yesterday to the Broncos that put their playoff hopes on life support. At 4-5, the Bolts are currently 11th in the AFC, 0-2 in the AFC West, and they are running out of time. With four games within the division remaining and seven games left on the schedule, it appears the Chargers will need to go 5-2 the rest of the way just to have a chance at postseason play.
Will it happen? It all starts with a win next week in Miami........
Sitting at 4-4 after a tough defeat to the Washington Redskins, the Chargers are at a crossroads. A win over their division rivals, puts them right back in the hunt, but a loss to the Denver Broncos might end the Bolts season. Broncos sit at 7-1 and are trying to keep pace with the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs. The biggest challenge on paper right now appears to be the Broncos wide receivers against the Chargers secondary. With a secondary that has been victimized for the majority of the year, the Bolts need to make sure they get off the field on 3rd down.
