In the latest power rankings on NFL.com, Elliot Harrison has placed the Chargers as the 11th ranked team in the league.  Below is an excerpt from the article.  

 

RANK

11

4-3 CHARGERS

 

“Bye week in San Diego. We literally can’t wait until this team gets Denver (on Nov. 10) and Kansas City (on Dec. 29) at home. Been saying all year that the Chargers wouldn’t be pushovers, and if you’ve watched them this season, you know that assertion certainly has held true.

Mentioned last week that Philip Rivers is my Comeback Player of the Year, hands down, butAntonio Gates might be second. He’s just seven catches and 41 yards behind his totals for all of 2012. Wow.”

 

I love that Harrison points out the performance of veteran tight end, and future hall of famer, Antonio Gates.  Although the talk around the league concerning the Bolts has been about “fixing” of Philip Rivers, the resurgence of Gates has certainly been crucial to the early season success of the Chargers.

The offense has been solid especially considering the fact that the running game has started to get going.  After a brilliant defensive gameplan by John Pagano versus the Indianapolis Colts, the fans would like to see more of the same as San Diego will see its schedule get much tougher in the last nine games.

I try not to think like this seeing as we’ve only played 7 games, but if the playoffs started today the Chargers would be the 6th seed in the AFC.  That prematurely stated stat goes hand in hand with Harrison’s ranking of the Bolts in the 11th position of the NFL.
