    Thought you guys might enjoy a football article from today's paper that doesn't mention CameraGate:

    Tom Brady sees the Chargers defensive backs as they would like to be seen by everyone, as they believe they can and ought to be widely perceived.

    The New England Patriots quarterback would have you believe the Chargers' secondary is shortly headed en masse to the Pro Bowl.

    “We're facing Drayton Florence and Quentin Jammer and (Antonio) Cromartie and a very talented secondary,” Brady said. “Marlon McCree is doing great, and (Clinton) Hart looks like he's fitting in well now. They've got a bunch of playmakers on defense, especially in the secondary.”

    And then, of the defensive backs who had the seventh-fewest interceptions in the league over the past two seasons, he said, “They've got a ball-hawking secondary.”

    McCree smiled and shook his head at the mention of Brady's abundant praise.

    “He'll build you up and make you all comfortable,” McCree said. “And you go out there and it's an air raid.”

    Brady says the same thing about everyone's secondary before he plays them.

    I think the chargers have one of the best front 7 in the NFL and I respect the talents that they have but think they can be contained with a solid game of run vs. pass in equal dosages

    If we get too cute and pass all game we may put Brady in danger and I don't think Brady will have 7 seconds to throw this game but he can have success against that secondary if our running game is to play well and get respect which will take some pressure off blitzes by Williams,Castillo and company

    The key to this game in beating the Chargers defense is to have 50-50 run pass with rushing being a huge factor in this game and Maroney in particular must have a good game if we are going to win this one.

    Yeah, I think Brady said this about the Jets secondary last week.

    Charger's secondary is a weakness, but they definitely have one of the best front seven units right now.

    Brady to Media : I think the Chargers front 7 is better than the vaunted Steel Curtain Defense. Infact, their front seven is better than the Doomsday Defense or the 80's Bears, and their Secondary is as good as the Ronnie Lott, Dwight Hicks of 80's 49'ers

    Brady thinking to himself : Hmmmm. Randy "Straight Cash Homey" Moss told me 3 TD's just for him per film breakdown on Chargers secondary

    It's interesting to note that the SD secondary more than contained Moss in his years with the Raiders, even knocking him out of one game. Then again, I get the feeling he was never giving 100% over there.

    No Jersey Selected

    Irrespective of whether Brady says this for all the teams, I think he is serious about the Bolts, especially with regard to their front line.

    Their defensive game plan would be to rough up Moss a lot right from the beginning and try to hit Brady as much as possible to throw us out of rythmn. I am expecting a very hard hitting game with each team trying to prove to the other that they are the best. Both have enough motivation for doing it this week.

    I am hoping that there are no serious injuries and we blow them away.

    There's a football game this Sunday? No way! Wow, what time and who are they playing? :D

    I hope the Pats kick ass. Going to be tough though.

    Ok. Let them double Moss. Just opens up room for Welker, Watson, Stallworth, Washington, Maroney to stretch the field with Speed

    I see spread O this game, and lots of swing passes and fake draws

    Would you rather have Brady at Home or Philips "Cry me a" Rivers on the road ?

    Case closed.

    Brady at home wasn't much of a factor the last time we came to Foxboro. Case reopened.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd rather be the Pats at home, but there is that guy named Ladanian that makes the Chargers the team that they are. If he goes wild for 150 & 3 TD's, which is clearly possible, it could be a tough day for the Pats. Without Seymour and Harrison on D mind you. However, they still have to try to shutdown the Pats attack, and that's where I think the game will be won. We should put up 20+ on Sunday, without a problem.

    Wasn't that game:

    a) in 2005?
    b) with Brees at the helm?
    c) on the heels of a 21-game home winning streak for the Pats?

    Jeez, they had to lose some time. You sound like a Dolphin fan: "Yeah, we went 6-10 and actually admitted to stealing your audibles, but we beat you 21-0 that one time!"

    no worries. They're still hutin from the 49 point drubbing at the SB at the hands of 49ers. Charmer fans love to live in the past

    Moss was probably the only threat on offense and smothered him. Plus the Raiders didn't have a quarterback.

    Godef

    You're trying to reason with a Socal Bolt fan.

    PS: you may want to change that name......Godef is eerily close to the name some new NFL Fuhrer
