    what a ricidulous column but it did the job cause i red some of it.

    tom curran did the same thing... with the 5 things.

    no way LT is going to be the normal LT.

    Curren said back in Sept that the Chargers were too fast for the Pats and picked them, who'd that work out.

    Does King has a ridiculous column since he picked the Pats? Of course not, he picked our team. But of course, Banks is wrong because he picked against our team.

    Don't get me wrong. Banks can be wrong. I do not debate on this but why those who vote for us are great and those who don't are not? Same thing for any columnist who wrote something against the Pats is a dip*** but when he write something in favor of it he is right. Some will respond it's part of being a fan. I disagree. I try as much as possible to remain critical. Maybe that make of me a mild fan, unable to be a real fan.

    Anyway, sorry to have disturb you with this philosophical question... ;)

    it says LT must be a difference maker... the only difference he made last week was empyting the water cooler and keeping the bench warm.

    if you think he's gonna be miraculously 100% i ahve to questions your state of mind.

    Guys, he's not saying that stuff WILL happen. The column is about what would maybe NEED to happen for the Chargers to win. Don't be so sensitive, take it as a compliment.

    Sure, the cloumn is called "Upset Special".
    But does Banks ever say he thinks SanDi will beat the Patriots?
    Does he even predict they'll beat the spread?

    I musta missed reading that.
    Also i didn't see it in his other column about "AFC Scout".
    Actually, from what he said there (discussed in a separate thread)
    he can hardly expect the Chargers to prevail.

    Seems to be just plausible ... perhaps provocative ...
    content for his media outlet.

    I mean, sure they're a decent team.
    But they've got incendiary dances.
    They've got incendiary soundbites.
    They've got volatile ... adolescent ... malingering superstars.

    Sure, they've got A CHANCE.
    But who is PICKING them?

    no one picked them vs the colts either. Who cares if they all pick the chargers or all pick the pats. It will be decided on the field. Hope its competitive.
