I'm starting to not like all the attention the Chargers have been getting lately. I much prefer being the underdog and playing the spoiler role rather than going into games getting talked up about how "great" we are.

We all have been through it before, sitting near the top of each power ranking with momentum on our side going into "an easy matchup"... only to laid an egg and shoot us back to reality. I'm nervous as heck that we are at that point. With all of the Rivers for MVP talk, power rankings saying we are 3rd at worst including some places saying we are the #1 team, and now we head to the lowly Raiders.

I want to believe this year is different, that this MM/TT built team is different. I just can't help but think that each game will be a laugher, that the Norv Turner era mistakes will pop up again.

I think the team mentality is different and while I don't think anyone on the team cares about where they're ranked, this team certainly has a different feel to it than the Norv teams.

As opposed to all the accomplishments and superbowls we got while we were "playing the role of the underdog"....lol

This team is of the humble sorts, especially the leaders we have in place, they know that the rankings at this point in the season don't matter, the one at the end of the season does.

I feel ya, I like it when we are floating under the radar and would like that to continue. When people treat us as the best, yeah it feels great but when it comes to those important games, We just end up getting let down.

Pretty much, this team is well-coached and is loaded with veterans. The extra attention isn't going to affect them.
