Probably better.

At Bodog, we are 35-1, and 3 teams have worse odds than us, including the Jets, Giants and Cowboys.

Thanks. I live Chargers football, and it would really hurt, but being a San Diego (Chargers, Padres) sports fan I am very used to losing. It used to hurt really bad, but as I grow older (I am only 20 about to be 21) I have realized that sports shouldn't have such a negative impact on my life when we lose. This has been the first season that when we lost I'm just like oh well, lets get 'em next week (luckily we've only lost twice this year).

So no, I won't kill myself, I'll be pissed.

Word on the street is that if we don't go "Deep" (whatever that means) into the playoffs then Marty is gonna be fired. So if we do lose, I will just take solace on that and hope that we hire our Offensive Coordinator, Cam Cameron, before he gets snagged away from another team.

Well I'm rambling now, so I'll stop.

Tell me about it, they beat us the week before they beat you and we should have clearly beat them. That was very lame.

you know JACK about losing... sure, you guys have had losing seasons... but you haven't f*cked up homefield advantage three times, not won a playoff game since 1993, and have been to a super bowl since 1970

so shut the f*ck up about 'knowing about losing'

I just dont want you, the guy who roots for teams who have won a Super Bowl, and presumably a World Series (if you're a Royals fan) to tell me that I, the guy who roots for the teams who have only made one Super Bowl and World Series each, to tell me that I know nothing about losing.

Obviously I'm happy that we have these good players, but if you would have asked me back before the beginning of the each season, I would have rather made the playoffs. Our weakness now is our secondary, are you telling me I should root to lose so we can get the best DB out of college? Also, we are not only good because of draft picks. Our Free Agent signings definitely have something to do with it.

So yeah, don't tell me I know nothing about losing. Every team I've played on has also lost in the Championship games, so I know what I'm talking about.

I was two when the royals won... I wasn't BORN when the chiefs won (hell, my f*cking DAD was twelve years old when they won--my age is almost double my dad's age when the chiefs won the super bowl)

so, seriously, we're expecting delivery of merriman and tomlinson (we don't want rivers) within two days--we'll trade you all of the useless victories since I've been a chiefs fan (since 1989--so that's 18 years of failure)

losing sucks, no doubt... but what you're failing to grasp is that, while you were losing, you built your team into a virtual juggernaut by doing so... we've not rebuilt ONCE in eighteen years... we're always just on the verge of the playoffs, and nothing EVER gets done

sh*t, the colts have NO chance against our new merriman led defense!!11!!oneone!!1on!

Hmm, not really sure what you mean by that last line. But I will agree to disagree. In my opinion, give me a shot at the playoffs every year (or even every other year) and I would expect my team to win.

Specifically with your team they've been so talented the last 8 or so more years I'm surprised they haven't done better than they have.

it's a bit of my being a smartass--I mean, you complain so much about losing that you don't deserve merriman and tomlinson :)

*IF* Marty has finally learned his lesson, as he appears to have, the Chargers are going to be dangerous in the playoffs. As long as Marty isn't calling any plays on gameday he is one hell of a good coach. Maybe one of the best ever at getting players to play up to and above their potential. He just can't call an offensive game plan to save his ass on game day. As long as he continues to let his coordinators call the plays, look out.

He no longer calls the plays, but I bet if it comes down to crunchtime he is going to want to start calling the plays again.

New York Jets 20-1
Indianapolis 25-1
New Orleans 30-1
Philadelphia 35-1
Seattle 40-1
Chicago 50-1 [Starting Greasy will bring this down to 35-1]
Dallas 75-1
New York Giants 100-1 [at least]

There isn't an NFC team I'd pick above any AFC playoff team, with the possible exception of defenseless Indianapolis. All the NFC is playing for is the right to get slaughtered in the Super Bowl.

http://www.dictionary.com

'yeah'=ya?

there should be a comma after 'man.'

lions and browns should both be capitalized

period after 'picks'

one of these '-' between championship and caliber

a period after 'picks' once more

there you go, you can now intelligently post on this board without merely spewing LT stats as you have in the past.

(heh--just kidding)

anyway, yeah... teams CAN be built through the draft without having top ten picks

however, having them puts teams at a great advantage (consider the chargers for a moment for me)

teams that draft horribly and/or don't pick in the top ten simply don't rebuild at all

The problem with Marty is he lets his coordinators call the shots during the season that over rules them during the playoffs. :)

Ouch. The house rake is 51% on these bets. Which means the actual odds of a team winning are probably a lot less than the gambling odds offered by this bookmaking service.

I'm not a gambler, but of the odds posted above, the only ones I would touch are Baltimore and NE. All the other teams I think have several percentage points worse odds of winning than the house is giving.
