Super Bowl XLIII odds had made the Sand Diego Chargers pre-season favorites to make it to the Super Bowl odds in the coming season.
But bad luck, injuries and a massive early season break down has left the Chargers looking more like an outcast than Super Bowl XLIII odds contenders. But with two games left on the calendar and playoff hopes still alive, it’s way too early to count San Diego out of the Super Bowl XLIII odds just yet.
Super Bowl XLIII odds will reflect that this team has more talent than most pro bowl squads and one of the best QBs in the game. In fact, statistically speaking Phil Rivers is not only the best QB of the contending teams he’s also got the highest passer rating in the NFL and has been superb this season. The only thing he hasn’t done is produce more wins, and that’s why this team is struggling to remain relevant in the Super Bowl XLIII odds discussion.
It’s through no fault of Rivers that this team is 6-8 with two games remaining before the Super Bowl odds post season race begins, but rather the let-down in the running game this year, something that no Super Bowl XLIII odds makers predicted in the pre season. The loss of Michael Turner has proved devastating to this team that once had the most potent running attack, led by LaDainian Tomlinson, of any Super Bowl XLIII odds contender.
This year the Chargers have 96 yards a game, 27th in the league, and that will not get the job done when the Super Bowl XLIII odds are on the line. LT, once the league’s most dynamic back, is averaging just 3.6 yards a carry and is headed for a career low in yardage. With almost no running game between the tackles, Super Bowl XLIII odds contenders can leave a minimum number of players in the box and focus more on the perimeter and the pass coverage, in past Super Bowl odds campaigns, the Chargers’ danger zone.
But even with the collapse of the running game and an awful defense, the Chargers are still alive in the Super Bowl XLIII odds scramble. If the Chargers can win at Tampa in week 16, a big game against a Super Bowl XLIII odds contender, and Denver loses in week 16, the Chargers control their own destiny and play the Denver Broncos at home in the final game of the season -the loser’s Super Bowl XLIII odds hopes will be crushed.
No one expects the flawed Chargers to win the Super Bowl XLIII odds, but their shot at the Super Bowl odds is still far from over.
