PODCAST: Reviewing the Los Angeles Chargers’ 2017 Schedule

New, comments

When you go through the Chargers’ 2017 schedule, you realize how important it will be for the team to play well at StubHub Center.

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers Press Conference Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

I usually go through the Los Angeles Chargers regular season schedule game-by-game as soon as it comes out. This year, with so much uncertainty surrounding the team (and my own fandom), I didn’t. I waited until today.

So, I did my usual thing in today’s podcast. I looked at the schedule with fresh eyes and came up with predictions for games I think the team will win and ones I think they’ll lose. There were quite a few things in there that scared me, including:

  • An overly difficult road schedule
  • Three sets of back-to-back road games
  • Three different “short weeks” heading into games

You’ll have to listen to get my quick breakdown of each game, but I basically settled on the team having to go 7-1 at home if they want to make the playoffs this year. That’s a tall task and one that nobody can exactly predict right now since they’re playing in a stadium that has never housed an NFL game.

Here’s to hoping!
