    Williams led the Titans with FOUR touchdowns. LOL.

    From a Charger fan perspective, this is not going to be an easy game. Titans are an extremely physical team (as was witnessed when we played them several weeks ago) with injuries on both sides.

    Secondly, I will be the first one to admit Rivers has not played consistently, although he has improved in the last 5 weeks by controlling the ball better. Also, he is playing on a bad leg. If "good" Rivers shows up, I like our chances. If "Mr. Turnover" shows up, it's going to be a long day.

    Finally, weather is predicted to be high winds and rain, not good for the passing game. Titans have a great run defense with Vanden Bosh & Haynesworth.

    Believe it or not, I'm more worried about the Titans game than I am about a possible Chargers/Colts match - we have always played them well.

    Hoping to get past the Titans and Colts and face that Pats in the AFCCG - want another shot at the title and would make for an epic Sampson vs. Goliath battle.

    Moss had 4 TDs in one first half game.

    Rivers at home > Vince Young on the road
    LT >>> LenDale White
    Gates, Chambers >>> any TN receivers

    The Titans only have a 15 yard advantage on rush defense differential, and the Titans are facing the best RB in the NFL, and the Chargers now have their D healthy after having holes this season.

    The only edge the Titans have is that Jeff Fisher is a good coach.

    This is the same team that gave the Pats all they wanted in San Diego in the WC game last year. SD is a good team. The Titans are not.

    What he said. This should be a blow out. A loss here is worse than McCree not knocking the ball down IMO.

    Chargers can probably win this game with 3 FG's. I don't see Tennessee scoring more than 6-points.

    Tennessee dominated them a couple of weeks ago for 50 minutes. Led 17-3. Had SD down 17-10 with about 2 minutes left. 4th and long. Chargers completed a questionable pass to wr. I thought he trapped it. Ref on the field ruled it a catch. Not enough to overturn it. They were probably one good camera angle from losing that game. Titans probably just as good with Collins at qb as VY. I predict SD. But, as Charger fan pointed out. Not a gimme.

    No way the Titans beat the Chargers. Even if Rivers plays like trash, I think he is better than either Tenn. QB. Meanwhile I will also take Tomlinson over White and Gates, Chambers and Jackson over the Titans motley crew of pass catchers. Even if they stack to box to stop Tomlinson, I think they can hit Gates and Chambers almost all day and win easily. Titans might score a couple of FGs because Bironas can bang them in from long, but I can't see the Titans getting TDs unless Rivers gives them field position with turnovers.

    they would need at least 25 points to win as Bironas was able to kick 8 FGs in one game this year.

    IMHO, the Titans are only an average team. They may be very physical, and very well-coached, but they are lacking in talent in alot of phases.

    Norvo the Clown can do everything in his hands to screw up, but it still won't be close.

    Titans are banged up. Can't see them moving the ball much nor containing LT for a full 60 minutes. SD takes this one.
