As you all know, your San Diego Chargers will not be suiting up this week in the NFL due to the bye. Thank goodness. The Chargers have a bye week just in time to give some of their nicked up players an extra week to rehab their injuries, as well as making sure any players who would be doubtful to play a chance to aim for a week 9 return.
Donald Butler (groin) and King Dunlap (concussion) are the two biggest names benefiting from this week off. With our swing tackle, Mike Harris, becoming the 7th player in as many weeks joining the IR crew, a healthy Dunlap will go a long way. And it should not be that hard to convince you why Donald Butler is a crucial piece needed on the defensive eleven as the guy with the green sticker on his helmet.
While some you guys are sad over the Chargers not playing this week, I will be focusing on the Redskins/Broncos game. Should the Redskins pull off some monkey business, the Chargers will be one game out of the number 2 spot in the AFC West with the Redskins as our next opponent.
Enjoy the fact that this is the one week out of the entire regular season you can watch football without stressing over the winner (unless you play Pigskin Pick’em like me and went from first to fifth thanks to the damn Eagles).

EDITOR”S NOTE: I am just curious….. who took over first place in that Pick ’em League? I think Sam is hanging tough in second. But I can’t remember who is currently in the lead.
