16. There might not be a player in the NFL under more pressure than Philip Rivers. If he's good, it's not out of the question to think the Chargers can be one of the AFC's best teams. If he's not, they probably will be on the outside of the playoffs again.

8. In the last decade, only 5 of the 14 teams debuting a non-rookie quarterback dropped by two or more wins compared to the previous season. Three of those teams were playing the young quarterbacks due to injury (Brooks Bollinger in 2005, for example). The other two teams were the 1999 Broncos, with Brian Griese replacing John Elway without a healthy Terrell Davis or Shannon Sharpe, and J.P. Losman's Bills, whose defense collapsed. We hereby guarantee that if LaDanian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates are injured for most of 2006, Philip Rivers will have a bad year.

Nice find. Hard to argue with putting us anywhere from 8-16. But we'll move up after we thrash a couple week azz teams and win our bye week.

Indeed! I firmly believe that the Bolts will be the the number one ranked team the minute that the SuperBowl is completed this year.

Those rankings are way off. It's just a matter of time before these guys realize most of last year's "powerhouse" teams have taken a huge step backwards.

It's funny, most of the experts' predictions are just rehasing how teams finished last season. Most experts have predicted the division winners will be:
The Pats
The Bengals
The Colts
The Donk
The Squacks
The Bears
The Panthers
The Giants.

All division winners or wild card teams. Way to go out on a fuggin limb!!

The only non-playoff teams getting any playoff slots are the cowboys, ravens, dolphins and Bolts. All, other than the Ravens, were within a game or two of the playoffs last year.

These things mean jack poop

Philip Rivers takes over at quarterback, and he'll be fine. The Chargers will push the Broncos hard in the AFC West. If they don't make the playoffs, a coaching change is coming.
