First post on this forum. If any of you were following the forums.chargers.com lately you'd see I attempted to instill some logic into the debate of whether the Pats won or the Chargers "Lost". What is "lost" in all of this is the Chargers horrific record against playoff caliber teams in 2006. They ended up 2-3, scoring 101 points while giving up 96 averaging 20.2 PPG while giving up 19.2 PPG. On Sunday they scored 21 points, right in their seasonal average versus quality teams. The Patriots are now 4-2 against playoff teams scoring 136 points while giving up 111 for averages of 22.6 and 18.5. Again, the 24-21 score on Sunday was very much on target as both teams performed to their offensive number within 1.4 points +/-. Also consider, the Patriots played 2 of the 3 remaning teams in the playoffs while every team San Diego played is now golfing. Anyone that contends the Chargers were a superior team ignores the fact that they played the worst offense in NFL history twice in Oakland, Cleveland and Arizona. They took care of business and beat the sisters of the poor, but when it came to quality opponents they folded. On the flip side, I think folks in New England need to be aware of Indy's dominance against quality opponents this year with a 6-1 record. They've scored 181 points and given up 125 for an average of 25.9 and 17.85 PPG. Really for the first time in this rivalry the Colts actually have the statistics solidly on their side. There are some caveats, the playoff competition they've faced were mostly eliminated in the first round but they have played solidly this year. I look for a game that will come down to turnovers. Both teams are due for a solid offensive game. If the Colts last 5 weeks are now the norm, the Patriots should be able to beat them by a similar score to last weekends game, 24-21, 27-24 etc, if the Colts offense re-emerges it could be a long day with scores something like 31-21 for the Colts. One thing is clear, statistically and on record, the Colts are vastly superior to the Chargers and hopefully the fans realize that going in. Unlike past years, they now have a very good kicker. I was banned for 30 days on the Chargers forum for posting these facts. Apparently they want to continue the delusion of being regular season champs.
