I don't want to talk trash (much), I just want to get a sense of the matchups.
there's some dillusionals running around but i mean, us normals will tell it like it is
do the chargers have a chance, sure, they gotta play perfect, get pressure, hope for mistakes by NE like last playoffs, and not make stupid mistakes of their own like mcree fumbling an int.
the smart charger fans know that sd can int brady but if you give him too many chances, he will kill you in the end
this year , brady's int ratio is so far down that we definitely can't count on him making bad throws, especially how he played against the jags.
the chargers know it's all about pressure and if they can create some, and they know NE prepares like no other team in the league.
there's quite a bit of respect for NE, despite all of the bad blood
we are more than likely looking at the best team ever (we'll know either sunday or feb 3rd)
we do feel you can be run on though, if only because of how the ravens did it, but again, it's nothing to be counted on, LT's been pretty much shut down in the playoffs by tennessee and indy, so it wouldn't really surprise me to see NE play sd that same way and just let whoever is playing qb be the one to beat them.
of course we all want to get to the SB, but i am pretty happy with getting to the afccg, no one thought we could do it this year and we did, alot thought we could do it last year and we didn't.
oh also, we're alot different than week 2, basically right now we're a team that can get hammered between the 20's on defense, but really show up inside either red zones.
weakness is the safeties, i have no idea how we'll set up on D sunday, we looked really different vs indy.
