    Am I the only one who thinks JAX can beat the Chargers? They have a better record, and the way Indy almost beat them last week...I think Rivers and LT are out of gas..

    I was looking at this game long and hard also,its a home game for the Jags(I think..)if so thats obviously a factor with the travel,etc.,and the Jags ground game which they will stick with no matter what....Gerrard is back....and I hate to say it but the Colts do have some starters out ,last I heard.Sounding better all the time....

    Ooops ...scratch the Colts remark....a brain fade,but I agree the Jags can beat the Chargers at home.Chargers have not been impressive .

    No. Neither team is very good, so I'll go with the more talented team. Which is clearly San Diego.

    The only reservation I have is that San Diego is 1-3 on the road. Of course, 2 of those 3 losses are to NE (9-0) and Green Bay (8-1). The third road loss was to a Minnesota team when APeterson went off.

    After PM tried handing the game to the Bolts last week on an interception laden silver platter, they nearly refused. I have zero faith in Rivers and Norv to exploit whatever holes there are in the Jax pass D. They'll just load up against the run and leave Rivers to his own ineptitude.

    Rivers has been awful as of late and I believe Castillo is out for the Bolts.

    Jacksonville has a very physical, opportunistic defense and MJD and Taylor ar erunning all over everyone, plus they get Garrard back.

    I definitely think Jacksonville can and should win this game.

    Two teams you can put a fork into, the Colts and the Chargers. Even if they squeak into the playoffs they are dead meat. Jaqs all the way this week.

    I think Rivers has lost his self confidence and worse yet, his team knows it. Add to that the fact that the team also has no confidence in the coaching staff and you have a real melt down in SD. Too bad because the team does have talent and does know how to draft and they are going to get low picks. A Cowher as HC would be a serious threat to the Pats even with Rivers at QB.

    The game is at Jacksonville. It didn't take me long to pick Jax.

    I'll go with the Jags, but only if Garrad plays.

    No, you're not. The Jags are favored to win this game.

    actually, i made my "pigskin pickem" picks this mornin, and i picked the jags. never even thought twice about it. lets face it, the chargers have issues. everyone talks about the bengals imploding, but did anyone read the comments from the charger defensive players? there's a team who doesnt believe in their coach. their done. add em to the list of teams who have gone in the shi*tter after losin to the pats.

    Agreed, and this is the first time in a very long time that I have felt that the team that is the greatest threat to the Pats winning the Superbowl is a NFC team...Dallas.

    ....and we already waxed them once.

    The bold is the key. Jax can be thrown upon, but San Diego isn't the team to do this. I'm picking Jax.

    San Diego's chance relies in keeping the score low and winning with turnovers and scores on short fields. If Garrard plays, he's not a world-beater, but he's very good at not turning the ball over. San Diego's chances are slim, IMO.

    Regards,
    Chris

    I like Jax in this game. SD is not a mentally strong team and it's shown on the road.

    I really missed rooting against them with all of my heart last week. :singing:

    I'm going to go out on a limb and pick the Chargers. Our D and Special Teams are starting to turn things around. The O is at rock bottom, and they know it. Look for this week to be the week Rivers turns things around. If not, I suspect our season is likely over.

    The Broncos, Chiefs and Raiders will all lose this weekend too. Your season is likely safe until the wild card round because the AFC west is awful this year.

    If SD's offense gets untracked I think we win the game handily. We should have routed the Colts last week and we would have if we had half an offense. Jax is not a huge threat on O and I think SD's D can keep them in the game. It's all about PR and whether he can get it together.

    All he has to do is not turn the ball over and I think SD wins.

    Agreed. However, if Rivers can't get out of his slump, the playoffs are a moot point even though we will likely win the debacle known as the AFC West.

    OK Bolts fans, what evidence do you have that SD's O will get untracked as you both assert (posts #21 & #23)? The coaching has been so poor that the same players producing an elite running attack have tanked. What changes next week? And your QB demonstably evidences that he's lost confidence in himself. What will be different this week? And the players have let that insidious doubt about the coaching staff's ability enter their minds. What's happening this very week in game prep that will fix that?

    The answer is nothing, or way too little. Bolts are short-circuited.

    Pfft. I have zero evidence. I'm just hoping for the best. I'm hoping that at some point our talented offense gets tired of playing for s h i t. <shrug>

    I can't disagree with you. Don't have any evidence, only a cautious optimism. The way I see it, things can't get any worse - they are already at rock bottom. Rivers and Norv are being blasted by our fans and the media in a big way. They must know that something needs to change or it could mean their jobs. I'm HOPING this will be incentive enough for Norv to make some changes with his play calling, and for Rivers to remove his head from his arse.

    One can hope, can't they?

    Apologies Bolts fans, as I came across too harshly in my query. Before LT got on his classy rant the Chargers & Bills were my favorite non-Patriots teams. I loved SD schooling NY on the Manning trade. I actually think it's tragic what's happened this year with the coaching staff. Best wishes even though I think JAX wins Sunday.

    Believe me, your post was not harsh PWP. You only state what everyone else is thinking. If you want to see some harsh posts, take a look at our own forums!!

    BTW, I must admit I have a bit of a soft spot for the Pats. Seau and Harrison (ex-Bolts) are still two of my favorite players of all time, and if the Chargers don't make the playoffs or lose in the first round (which is likely), I will be pulling for the Pats. Would be nice to see those guys play in a Championship and win - I think they deserve it.

    I think Shanahan can somehow wins the west. They have an easy schedule the rest of the way. And for Norv to go 4-3 from here wouldn't surprise me. So, yes, Jax wins and the AFC West is tied.
