How confident are you in the direction of the team?
Last week: 88 percent confidence
Chargers fan confidence fell off a cliff after Sunday’s awful loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, but it started at such a high level that fully half of the sampled fan base is still confident. In fairness, it’s difficult not to be confident when you have a future Hall of Famer under center, but that was certainly tested this past weekend.
Will the Chargers win or lose in Week 2?
Odds: Chargers are 9-point favorites
Bolts From The Blue FanPulse: Chargers by 12
Buffalo Rumblings FanPulse: Chargers by 11
The betting line has the Chargers as better-than-a-touchdown favorites, but both Chargers and Bills fans expect the Bolts to easily cover. If there really is wisdom in crowds, maybe you should place a bet.
Other than QB, what is most valuable to an NFL offense?
Chargers fans still believe in the value of protecting the quarterback’s blindside. Luckily for Philip RIvers and those fans, the Chargers seem to place a high value on it as well with Russell Okung capably manning the left tackle position this year
