The Chargers say they won't be too intimidated by playing at Joe Robbie Stadium in their first Super Bowl.

"I think we're going to play well," Coach Bobby Ross said Monday, a day after the Chargers stunned the Pittsburgh Steelers, 17-13, at Three Rivers Stadium. "I'm not going to worry about it all. I'm sure they'll have a good crowd, if for no other reason than it's a big social event. And we're going to show up."

Ross said he met with the team captains--none has been to a Super Bowl--and the few Chargers who have made it with other teams. They include Stan Humphries, the third-string quarterback with Washington in the 1992 Super Bowl, and backup quarterback Gale Gilbert, who had a similar spot with the Buffalo Bills in their four consecutive Super Bowl losses.
