One less than in 2016 at home.

Two more than 2016 overall.

Just looked at their schedule, and it looks like they have 0.

Kind of bummed. I go to one away game each year; trying to hit all 32 teams (got like 20 in). Was really hoping for the Dallas game but no way wifey going to let that happen on Turkey Day. I know I am selfish, I should be happy they are playing on T-Day! Looks like it's JAX this year and that will complete all my Floridian games (Did Miami and Tampa already).

Bolded is the key. The novelty of the game day experience at the stub will wear off by season 2, imo.

The Chargers have to do well to draw fans, imo. Drawing fans is secondary to money making anyway. Spanos will make money whether the Chargers win or lose.

Makes sense to me. Seems obvious.

In every other meaningful way, he made a monumental mistake. Since his top priority appears to be money, he probably won't actually "regret" it.

Worst case for him is selling the team in a few years and banking his $3 billion or so.
Yes. If we are being completely objective you are right on. imo.

LOL! Way to bargain!

Actually, I believe in our talent. We are significantly better than avg at all O skill positions, DL, LBs and CBs. Saying we're not a 12-4 team depends on the OL failing, key injuries or coaching failure.
Yeah, I know. That was what we've seen in the recent past. Thing is, this ain't then.

Same arguments I heard when we heard Mike McCoy.

The o-line might be slightly better looking at it right now.

Hoping for injury prone players to not get injured is asking for a lot.
You take KA away from WR they are below average.
You take Verrett away from CB below average.
LB is a wait and see they excelled last year, but is that what they really are?
DL is strong, but it can get stronger IMO.
RB needs depth.
S is below average right now.

This team needs a grand slam draft, and I can't say TT has hit it out of the park on any drafts outside of last years.

This team has a ton of question marks right now.

I have a feeling that we will see a significant increase in the run game, so it should give PR breathing room so he doesn't get rattled as much.
