King Likes the Chargers – Ranked 7th in SI’s Power Rankings

Peter King of Sports Illustrated is out with his first power ranking of the season, and he likes what he sees from the Chargers, as he has him ranked 7th in the league. Here’s what he has to say about them:

7. San Diego
Philip Rivers’ great 2008 season was lost in the fog of a weird, controversial 8-8 year. I bet there haven’t been 20 seasons — ever — as statistically impressive as the one Rivers had last year: 65 percent passing, 4,009 yards, plus-23 touchdown-to-interception differential. Now Shawne Merriman returns with his wacked-out, Seau-like desperation to succeed, and first-rounder Larry English comes from the Mid-American Conference determined to prove A.J. Smith didn’t reach for him. This team’s good enough to win 13, but it has to survive the toughest road schedule in the league: at Pittsburgh, at the Giants, at Dallas, at Tennessee, all in the last three months.
