Everything we talk about is about beating the Packers, the Bears and the Vikings. Obviously there are other teams in the league, but if you can dominate and be on top of your division you are always in the playoff hunt. It's time for us to win that thing.

The Chargers made a statement today.

Steve Mariucci
Was he a little behind when he got here? You bet. And is he catching up? Yeah, I think so.

You're tempted to say, `We're going to play until we get something done,' ... We have to resist that because we have to be smart.

Steve Mariucci
Right now, we don't have him blowing up any receivers coming across the middle for obvious reasons. So, he will shine when it's live. He's got the experience. I know he's ready to do that. He's been just kind of holding back. Chomping at the bit, sort of. You'll see it.
Steve Mariucci

This is the best news we could've received. He called right after he got the results. Jeff was very upbeat and said he hopes to be ready sooner. He is on his way back to Michigan and will begin his rehab this afternoon.

Steve Mariucci
I was really pleased with how we responded to a game like Monday night's. It was as good a fourth preseason game as I've been around.
Steve Mariucci

We know who is out there as far as available quarterbacks, but in reality, no one would be more prepared or capable as a No. 2 at this point than Dan. He got more snaps in the preseason than any of our quarterbacks and continues to get better.

Steve Mariucci
If we're going to run the football, and if we're going to be an explosive offense, it's going to start up there in the trenches.
Steve Mariucci

Maybe it's the way we traveled. Maybe just fly in, eat some angel hair pasta and go play. Maybe that's what we're going to do from now on.

Steve Mariucci
We're taking a look, if we choose to add another quarterback. We want to take a good look at him and see how he learns our offense -- if he's a candidate to bring back at another time. We've seen him play on film in a very exciting offense. He's been productive.
