Are the San Diego Chargers Boring?

Allow me to give you a quick peek behind the BFTB curtain. For the last few days, I have been completely unmotivated to write about the San Diego Chargers. No random topics that tickle my fancy have popped in my head and got me going, which is usually how my writing process starts mid-week. I've been blaming a bit of writer's block, which happens from time to time, but I'm starting to wonder if maybe this Chargers team is just boring.

If someone that knew nothing about football asked me to describe the Chargers 2011 season thusfar, my answer would be something to the effect of "Logic says that they're talented, but they play like crap....but they have a good record because they've played really bad teams thusfar." Is that anything to get excited over?

The team has stars in Philip Rivers, Antonio Gates, Vincent Jackson and Ryan Mathews. Yet, most of the focus seems to be on the coaching staff and how they're either doing a poor job or doing the best job they've ever done. The offense can be exciting, but seems to be inconsistent and just as talented at shooting itself in the foot as it is at scoring points. The defense seems to be "good", but there's nothing very exciting about it to this point.

If there's anything to get excited about this season, it's been Ryan Mathews coming into his own and filling the gap left by Antonio Gates' absence. Outside of that, this team is still reminding me of all the times I was left depressed by the Bolts in the past.
