Do you want a 4-0 preseason?

Posted by Joel Price on August 24, 2012 – 11:16 PM

Chargers-Vikings game on Friday night was pretty exciting. Nick Novak nailed a 45-yard field goal as time expired to give the Chargers a 12-10 victory.

Awesome, right? Well, maybe not.

According to this 2011 post over at Yahoo.com, only 31% of NFL teams who had an undefeated preseason since 2000 went on to have a winning season.

The Chargers are getting dangerously close to 4-0.

The post makes a point on how the preseason victories can get fans really excited.

It’s easy for some fans to think that their team is destined for greatness when they’re the only team that wins all their preseason games. Fans tell themselves, “How good will they be when they’re actually trying? Our team has some tremendous depth and can overcome any injury!”

So here we are, heading into the fourth and final preseason game and the Bolts sit 3-0. If my math is correct, and the team pulls out a win in San Francisco on Thursday night, they’ll go UNDEFEATED!

Is it nice to win the games? Absolutely, but it doesn’t mean much, one way or the other in the preseason.

So do you want the Chargers to go 4-0 in the preseason? Or does it matter? I’m confused.

    Win or lose, I just want our team to come out of preseason game 4 healthy and ready for the regular season.

    I don’t really care about the fourth preseason game. I just want our main guys healthy and ready to take on Oakland.

    Don’t care about 4 and 0 but i do care about them kicking some 49er butt next week. Born and Raised in San Diego…… Grew up with Tobin Rote, Air Coryell etc… etc…. I have been in the Bay area for 10 years (not my choice) and i am Flipping Tired of these 49er and Raider Nation Homers up here. Kick their asses to the wall and then take care of Oaklan Homers as well.

    Don’t care about 4-0 in the preseason. I want the players to stay healthy and spend your efforts getting the O-line in shape. No, Don’t put Rivers, Gates, or anyone else out there. Wish you could just forfeit the preseason and practice on your own. Too many kids out there on some team’s defense looking to impress to get on the roster. I swear… fans would blow a head fuse if anyone else gets injured. Bad enough about Ingram, Brown, Matthews, etc.

    I’d rather see Chargers do some damage in the 16 game season and then in the play-offs! Go Chargers go!
