Well, the teams have been announced, but the dates that each team plays each other is not yet out (as I'm sure you know).

You'll enjoy San Diego--and the people there. It's really a great fun town. As you know, you've picked a very successful team to follow, since San Diego was in the finals of the AFC Conference last year (semifinal championship game). They will undoubtedly be one of the top 6 favorites to win the championship this year--the others being the New England Patriots, NY Giants (this year's champions), Indianapolis Colts, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Dallas Cowboys.

P.S. I mention this for others reading this thread--not for you, since I'm sure you know this stuff as well.

Things to see in San Diego while you are there would be:
San Diego Zoo
Old Town San Diego
Gaslight District
Mission Bay
Sea World
San Diego Wild Animal Park
and, of course, a quick trip across the border to northern Mexico is fun--I suggest Rosarita Beach or the small Puerto Nuevo village--which is famous for its 17 lobster restaurants.

One small correction to my last post. I haven't been to San Diego in almost two and a half years and apparently one area has changed drastically in that time.

You can still go to Old Town San Diego--but I've been told--and the local papers have confirmed that they completed changed Old Town--and apparently not for the better--since business in the area was down 60% in the first six months they were under new management. (This was as of September 2006.) Hopefully, the situation has improved recently, but I'm not as familiar with the "new" Old Town as I was with the "old" Old Town.

Very sad, too--since this was one of my two favorite areas to visit in town (the other being Mission Bay).

That October 12th game against the New England Patriots in San Diego will probably sell out in about 3 minutes--but it would be the one to go to if you can get tickets.

Best of luck with that.

I forgot to mention--all those times listed on the games are East Coast times. On the west coast, every game starts three hours earlier than listed. So, for example, a game listed as starting at 4:15 PM (east coast time), actually starts at 1:15 PM in San Diego.
