Its official, the Patriots are totally outmatched in terms of talent and can only win if BB comes up with a great scheme and Marty chokes again. Or so the national media would have you believe. I have heard from numerous sources that the only way the Chargers can lose is through coaching, as if their overall talent is that vastly superior to New England. I just don't buy it... they have 2 more wins, thats all. You can't argue that San Diego is a very good team - they are 14-2 and have won 10 games in a row. Certainly, they seem to have a lot of very good players. To me, it seems like if the Patriots win this game, rather than give credit to the Patriots, most are going to blame Marty for blowing it, again. My question is this... what is the most impressive win SD has had all season long? They seem to have gotten very lucky in that any good team they faced were playing poorly at the time. Cincy had lost 4 of 5 heading into their game with the Chargers. Both Seattle and KC were coming off 2 losses heading into the Chargers' game. Denver was imploding, replacing their QB and lost both games in between their 2 losses to SD. You can only beat who they put in front of you, I agree and there is no arguing with 14-2. However, they have not seen anyone like the Pats all season long. Certainly they haven't beat anyone playing at the level the Patriots are right now. The Patriots went on the road to beat a Tennessee team that had won 6 games in a row and was playing to continue their season then they beat the Jets who had won 5 of 6. My point is this: the national media is making it out like SD is this unstoppable team who has beaten all of these great teams. But to me, they haven't proven they can beat anyone like the Patriots yet. This weekend they have a chance to prove how great they are and, win or lose, there should be no excuses from either side. This game should be great and if the Patriots win, the players should get the credit they deserve.
