anyone want to contribute thoughts on how these two teams match up? NE 21st Pass O against SD 32 Pass D NE 17th Rush O against SD 18th Rush D SD 9th Pass O against NE 8th Pass D SD 21th Rush O against NE 20th Rush D from the numbers its seems SD's big strength has been it's pass offense. With their two top WRs hurting, Jackson and Chambers, their Pass O may not be as good. I guess they will turn to Gates more. I'm hoping the rookie Mayo will distrupt Gates at times. I'm going to assume LT's toe will not be a factor. So if PATs can keep LTs numbers down, both in passing and rushing, I think SD's Offense will not be as good as it needs to be to beat the PATs. On offense I see Cassel continuing to improve. With Merriman out and it looks like Tucker will be limited even if he does play, I don't think Matt will get as as much pressure as last week. If he continues to spread the ball around he should keep the chains moving. I see PATs running game still being effective even without Jordan. anything else? PATS Oline vs SD's Dline? SD's Oline vs PATs Dline? are the trenches about even here?
