    If the Patriots win this Sunday they can say to the world that they are one of the best teams in the league.
    If they lose, people will say "see?! They can't win without cheating"

    No one will take into account that SD is one of the top three teams in the NFL, all they will see is "video taping against the Jets = win. Not video taping against the Chargers = loss" It will be that simple to the media and the rest of the country.

    The best thing the Patriots can do is go out there this Sunday and beat the Chargers (even better if its in convincing fashion). I think that might be one of the only ways that this whole thing dies down sooner rather than later.

    Are you kidding? Of course they will come out and win HUGE.

    38 -10 or something! They will be so angry and determined I almost feel sorry for Norv Turner.

    no not a must win at all. IF we lose it will be because we couldnt stop LT. No shame in that...hes kinda good. We'll go and get the next team.

    I agree, this is not a must win. However if we lose I can see alot of piling on by the mediots. Especially if we get destroyed. Personally I think we have a good chance of winning this game. One game will not make or break this season though.

    We dropped 31 2nd half points after the Jesters had already confiscated the camera. That's what I find so funny in all of this. Alot of fans around the league think we will all of a sudden not be able to compete with the bid dogs in this league. We are one of the big dogs!

    Yes, it is a must-win .... for SD.

    After the way the team became unhinged after their shocking (to them) loss at home, after firing their 14-2 coach, and after the lackluster performance at home last week ..... if they don't win, people are going to start asking hard questions of the Norv.

    Oh, we are big alright,but there are 2 or 3 other teams out there that will give us a run for our money. The Colts are the big dog right now although they lost alot of teeth in the offseason on defense.

    Actually, it's not that complicated. The Patriots believe if then win, they'll be 2-0 and if they lose they'll be 1-1. Nothing deeper than that my friends!:cool:

    I agree.

    It's not a must win for the Pats... they've already proven they can beat the Chargers in last year's playoff.

    The Chargers on the other hand, have been saying that they gave away the game, lack of playoff experience, that coaching in the second half contributed to it, etc.

    Well, now that they're another year wiser with a brand new coaching staff, it's SD that has to put their money where their mouth is.

    I'm a die-hard Bolts fan, but I'm also a realist... and the reality is that SD must win this game... not the Pats.

    You should change your user name to "Homer".

    Any intelligent fan of the game will see that while the game will most likely be very high scoring, a la the Giants/Cowboys game on Monday night, it's not going to be a blowout by one team or another. The Patriots are a very good team, but they are also going against another good team that can match them point for point on offense, and is better than them on defense. Last time the margin of victory was 3 points for the Patriots. All of a sudden you think it'll just jump to 4 TD's? Get real.

    When we smacked you down the last time we were @ Gillette, if you were taping anything? You suck. Seriously. Obviously the pats ability to process and analyze info would have to be called in to question, no?

    That's the only thing that truly pisses me off about this scandal. When we beat you down again some less than informed mediot is gonna pontificate ad nauseum about how the pats "cheating" really made a difference. pffffft.

    I'm just saying you're not the Bears and we're damn sure not the Jets. [​IMG]

    Did you just say that SD has a better defense? That's funny.
