 In a way, the Super Bowl is like cake; once you get one, you want more. Like everyone that eats too much cake, they eventually become bloated. The Patriots and the Steelers are bloated right now.

The San Diego Chargers want a Super Bowl. They are like the starving dogs, and they're going eat until they are full. Over the past three seasons, San Diego has picked up the crumbs from underneath the table; those days are no more.

Our defense, the hungriest of all, is healthy and is ready to claim back the AFC. Having players like Merriman, Cromartie, Hart, and Williams back to full health make this defense something to be feared again.

On offense, we have an aging L.T. who wants to prove that age isn't a factor in greatness. Mike Tolbert, who was injured last season, is going to lead block for L.T. to make sure he adds a Super Bowl ring to his illustrious career.

Philip Rivers will lead this team with the help of Jackson, Chambers, Floyd, and Naanee. I'm excited to see how Rivers will perform after an amazing season throwing the ball.

San Diego fans better have their forks ready; the Chargers are going to the Super Bowl.
