    We need Jesus to be a wide receiver to beat the Chargers at this point,Charger injuries aside they still are dominant over anything we throw at them.

    Media spin. Same thing that had McNabb already reserving his suite in Miami last week. Chargers have been hot, but not without weaknesses this season. They can be run on for one.

    Yet they've managed to win 10 in a row, nonetheless, no easy feat in itself.

    We better run if we meet them because Moss will not be roaming free all that much against that secondary

    We had Harrison,Vrabel,Bruschi and all the old boys back then who KNEW how to win big games...If looking back to the past keeps you happy then more power to you,This years defense does not know HOW TO WIN big games and BB just does not have those gameplans to stop elite teams anymore, its been proven quite often in 2009.

    In time they will. As Russell says, mental toughness is a learned trait, not a talent.

    Yes, with a few nice wins to boot. But they didn't exactly play murderers row.

    Here is a post of mine from few weeks ago since then they destroyed a lackluster looking Ten team, should have at a minimum gone into OT, if the refs didn't blow an illegal substitution call against Cincy - and beat a demoralized Washington team.


    I still don't get it. :confused:

    You could say that about the offense as well? Not living in the past I actually posted the Chargers defensive rankings in another thread. I just find the love affair with the Chargers humerous. Can they beat us? Sure. Are they a slam dunk? Hell no!

    The Chargers beating us is of course not a slam dunk because no game is a sure thing due to the fact that there could be turnovers, without Welker it may not be a slam dunk win for SD but the ball is bouncing off the backboard and rolling around the rim.

    I think it's 11 in a row, see below, nonetheless I feel very strongly that neither the Chargers or Colts are invincible. Every team has it's warts in the AFC this season and any team can be had. It's going to be exciting to see what unfolds.

    But in your previous post you specifically pointed out the defense. Which one will cost us the game, the defense or missing Welker?

    I could argue with relative ease that the offense is the unit to blame for every second half loss / blown lead this season.

    The Chargers' run game is BRUTAL. Only 4 teams are below 4.0 YPC in the league and the Chargers are last, a shocking 3.3 YPC. Now, let's say Jackson is hurting in their next game . . . well, you do the math. For now, I'm concerned only about Baltimore but I can't see people thinking the Chargers are that dominant compared to us.

    I thought we matched up well with the Chargers before. Now? Not so much. Taking Welker out really hurts our passing game. In the end, in order to beat them, we're going to have to really rely on the running game. If we can run the ball successfully and eat up the T.O.P. then we should be in good shape. They also do not have much of a running game outside of 1 yard TD runs by Tomlinson. I still think we'll lose, but we have a better shot against them than probably anybody else in the playoffs.

    Exactly. The Patriots don't have any more of those guys that us fans have loved on the defense, the ones that made big plays in big games. I sorta knew that sooner or later that Belichick would harm this team by shipping out these guys only for younger inexperienced guys that have cost us at least 6 games this season.

    Not only that, but I doubt the team would be undefeated if Harrison, Bruschi, Vrabel, and Seymour were still here.

    Correct. I can only laugh at some of the posts on this board. Most of the people complaining about the "inexperienced" defense were the same ones calling the defense "old and slow" the past 3 years.

    BB can't win for losing. :cool:

    How is this a poor defense, look at the body of work not just a couple of games here n there. The defense may not be shut down or intimidating but they are far from poor.

    Exactly. Can anybody name a shut down or intimidating defense in the NFL in 2009? The offensive-friendly rules have taken all of those away.

    The defense isn't poor. They have given up points sure. But look at the T.O.P. for the 4th quarter and the offenses over all stats in the 4th quarter. 5 of Brady's 13 picks have been in the 4th quarter, we don't score in the 4th quarter, I would be willing to say that a disproportionately high percentage of our 3 and outs are in the 4th quarter. So I don't blame the defense for giving up points, when the offense can't stay on the field or at least push the field position back in the defenses favor.

    *Corrected my statement about Brady's 4th quarter INT's.*

    You're right

    Who is at fault for our team getting beaten into the ground during the second half of nearly every road game they've played this year then
