5 REASONS THE CHARGERS WILL FINALLY WIN A SUPER BOWL

For our first fan post we will address the only objective that matters if you're a football fan. Hoisting that gold encrusted orb named after a coach who succumbed to cancer. Though it's something I have yet to witness while watching since the Don Woods era it hasn't stopped me from foaming at the mouth with unbridled enthusiasm as each succeeding season approached. Only to be disappointed every time. So as 2011 arrives, fear not Charger fans, for this is the year we finally know the feeling. Here's why...

1. Philip Rivers

    Eli. Ben. Brees. Brady. Their days are done.

    Time has come to anoint a new king.

    Eli was an aberration. Ben a bad dream. Brees a blip. Brady a bad haircut.

    The NFL knows it needs a leader everyone can rally around.

    And it ain't Jay Cutler.

2. Ryan Mathews.

   Mike Tolbert will not be enough alone to take the running game to the next level.

   Mathews MUST break out.

   The beauty of this if it happens, with apologies to LT '06, is the best Bolts backfield since Brooks/Muncie.

   Because come playoff time there's two of them.

3. Defense.

   Number one defense my arse.

   Save it for the stat geeks.

   Gimme a D that comes up BIG when it counts.

   Manusky will deliver where Rivera and Wade wouldn't.

   Cue New England's late first half drive when we were up 14-3 and the best 14-2 team in the world.

   To not win a Super Bowl.

4. Not Special Teams

   As bad as they were last year they aren't the culprit. Slow starts are.

   Whenever Bill Walsh won the toss he wanted a touchdown.

   Take note Norv.

   Or defer from now on.

5. The Conspiracy Factor

    Ever make you wonder why often a team in any major sport has a REALLY good season when it wants a   

    new stadium?

    The league would like nothing more. In SD or LA. Therefore it's obvious.

    Bolts beat Brady in the Championship game. And whoever the NFC has to offer in the big one.

    Mark our words.

    Because even blind squirrels can find bling.
