It was a short week.  But as they say anything can happen on any given Sunday.

The Bolts are coming off of two straight losses and about to match up against a vastly weaker division rival.  This doesn't change the fact that this talented team still faces the woes of being under-coached by the likes of Norv Turner.

Nonetheless, the Chargers have a chance to make a statement in the next few weeks.

And it starts this Sunday against the Chiefs.

Despite the last two disappointments, there remains some promise.  Bad coaching and under-achieving aside, when this team is on, they're scary.  How long will it take the boys in the Powder Blue to play 4 solid quarters (and an overtime if it comes to that) like the team we all thought they were?

This is an open challenge.  Chargers, it's time to play like Champions.  Chargers fans have waited over a year to see that spasmodic Lights Out dance.  They've been hankering for that famous LT stiff-arm.  They've been waiting to see if Chris Chambers was worth forgoing that second round pick.  They've been waiting for somebody -anybody- to at the least TRY to fill that gaping hole that Jamal Williams left in that 3-4.

Pitched against a struggling Kansas City squad, the Chargers have no excuse not to start the game off strong and finish it in a way we've all been waiting for: a Rivers kneel down with a big lead late in the 4th.

Chargers 35 - Chiefs 14. Let's see it.
