San Diego Chargers Record
Key dates in the team history. January 29, 1995: The sole Super Bowl appearance for the Chargers, losing in a blowout to the 49ers, 49-26. They have not been that close in some time.
How strong is the team within its division/conference? Not terribly strong. This team made a return to the playoffs in 2013, but has not been back since then. They have been a perennial also-ran team in their division for years, and can’t seem to ever build a nucleus or momentum for the future.
What are the team’s main strengths vs weaknesses? Health has been a weakness lately. The team was crushed by injuries last year, but even when healthy, they aren’t a lock for the playoffs.
How far does the team usually go in the league? You can expect another missed post-season for the Chargers this year. At full-strength, this team lacks the man-power to compete in their division, or make the playoffs.
