BFTB Answers Your Chargers Questions

Hey fellas.  My name is John and, much like Ed does here, I manage Bolts From The Blue (SBNation's community for Chargers fans).

Each week this season, I've been putting up a FanPost at the upcoming opponent's community and offering to answer any Chargers-related questions in the comments.  Some weeks it's been a fantastic conversation, with lots of knowledge being passed back and forth.  Some weeks it has turned into nothing but trash-talking (which is the opposite of what we're aiming for).  Either way, it's usually fun.  So if you have any questions about the Chargers, fire away in the comments section and I'll be sure to answer them ASAP.

A few notes about the upcoming game:

  • I live in Philly, and since this is as close as the Chargers get to me this season....I will be attending and tailgating.  I am not loud and I am not obnoxious.  Please don't throw batteries at me.
  • I grew up in central NJ, so just about everyone I know is either an Eagles or Giants fan.  Many of my close friends will not talk to me this week to avoid a big argument.
  • For the record, I think Eli Manning is a very good quarterback.  However, I think Philip Rivers is better.  Accorsi and Reese have just done a better job of building the team around Manning.
  • I am a HUGE Ernie Accorsi fan.  I read his book and admire his work.  His recommendation of Jerry Reese for the next GM was a classy, and very smart, move.
  • Despite the Giants record for the past 3 games, I am very afraid of them.  The Chargers have had a hard time stopping big, bruising RBs this season. 
  • I hate Jeremy Shockey.  I always have.  When Giants fans try to tell me that Eli was working with a weakened team in 2007 because he had Kevin Boss in the playoffs instead of Shockey, I know they're stupid.

Please Rec this FanPost to keep it at the top until Sunday.  And let's hope for a good, competitive game.
