Chargers vs. Chiefs preview - Eric Williams & Adam Teicher
Eric, the Chargers have the AFC’s best record but three of their wins came against some of the NFL’s weakest teams. Do you feel the Chargers are legitimate Super Bowl contenders, or is the fast start more a function of their schedule?

Spanos on LA: "Doing Everything to Protect our Business Down Here" - Ricky Henne
"That is a very important issue to us because over the last 20 years we have spent a lot of time working into the Orange County/LA market, and 25-30% of our business comes from that area" he said.  "So when the Rams and Raiders left 20 years ago, we really worked hard to obtain that business.  So having a team or two teams going there would really be devastating to us right now.  We want to be protective of our business down here, so it would not be in our best interest if a team or two teams went up there."

Chargers schedule takes real shift - Kevin Acee (UT$)
In all, the Chargers strength of schedule (.333 combined winning percentage of their six opponents) is lowest in the league. Conversely, their remaining schedule appears to be among the toughest in the NFL, given their upcoming opponent’s combined .510 winning percentage.

Andy Reid is good for the Chiefs - Tom Krasovic (UT$)
Ten of his 15 NFL teams have made the playoffs. Considered better at game-planning and managing players than managing the game clock. Took five Eagles teams to the NFC title game, including every year from 2001-04. In only Super Bowl, lost to the Patriots.
