    SUMMARY: Understand this:

    The Chargers knew they were going to win yesterday against the Tennessee Titans, same as they knew going in they were going to beat the Oakland Raiders in the season opener.

    Now, two dominating victories into a schedule that is about to get tougher, having manhandled the Titans 40-7 at Qualcomm Stadium, they know what is behind them and what is ahead.

    Titans fans, please understand that it's an attitude of confidence and self expectation, not of contempt. The Chargers respect every team they face regardless of record. The Bolts made the mistake of relaxing against the Dolphins last season when the finz were still an iffy team, and then lost at home against a team that no one picked to beat the Chargers. Lesson learned, on any given Sunday...

    Bolts' players have unwavering confidence in themselves, their coaching staff, the system, and the front office. The entire offseason was filled with stories in the local papers of how several Chargers were preparing for the season such as Merriman incorporating a boxing trainer's regime, Nate Kaeding hiring a pro golf analyst to videotape his kick for swing analysis, or Gates picking the minds of our secondary coach and players to get inside the mindset of how DB's and safeties cover receivers.

    We have no less than 3 players (LT, Gates, and Merriman) who have publicy stated that they want to elevate their game to be the best ever at their position. The front office contributes to the confidence by rewarding the team's performers by extending their contracts before they expire. Even Marty has adjusted his training regimen to emphasize balance between opponent diagnosis, workouts, and resting his players when he senses they have maxed their efforts in practice. All of this contributes to a team with a team first concept. No attempt is made to sign headline superstar free agents with baggage and issues. The Randy Mosses and Terrell Owens are left for the teams looking for a shortcut to respectability, SD follows the Patriots blueprint of building through the draft and fine tuning the team chemistry with occasional FA signings. From what I see of the Titans, your team is likewise following a similar path to return to your winning tradition.

    Best of luck.
