    It seems like these 2 teams hardly change from year to year, that's whats so frustrating. I think the Chargers are the team with a bit more ceiling, while the Colts might be in the initial stages of decline. When I say decline, I mean going back to 10-6! With this being said, the Colts are the more dangerous team with the obvious qb advantage and the ability to exploit a weak secondary like NE's current one.

    What team concerns you more, SD or IND?

    We're fine at every position except CB but we're a playoff team.

    colts. they have a better qb, a better head coach, a better home field advantage, and they have proven they can beat the patriots in the postseason

    I don't think the Colts are in decline. Their defense is young and they had one of their best defensive years last year. They had very little turnover. The only decline is possibly Harrison. So it is the Colts that could beat us.

    The Chargers are more powerful and talented than the Colts right now IMO with the only glaring weakness being Coach Turner

    The Chargers should run away and hide in their division while the Colts may have trouble winning that division with the Jags looking pretty good and even the Titans have an outside shot.

    Not to forget to mention that Peyton may not be totally healed for at least the early part of the season.

    Don't forget an officiating advantage.

    Which I will commend the Chargers for amazingly overcoming.

    Colts, especially at their place. SD IS better on paper I think, but they have
    1)Rivers 2)Norv 3)LT who (sometimes literally) disappears when he plays NE.
    We have owned them for 2 years and are obviously in their heads.

    Right now I want to see a healthy Brady. Without him we may go 0-16.

    Based on your sarcasm I guess you feel it's somehow wrong to say the last 3 years of Colts playoff games (PIT/NE/SD) have been ridiculously pro-Colts?

    Feel free to defend that.

    We got you the first time you accused the Colts of cheating. No reason to call them cheaters 3 times, makes us look like whiny little babies. Cheaters Cheaters cheaters is something that my 3 year old would say, and even though I know you're referring to the hated Colts, I don't want to be associated with whiny crying.

    Colts.

    I was at the AFC Championship game and at absolutely no point did I feel the CHARGERS were in that game. And the Patriots played pretty badly that day. if that were the Colts, we might not have even made the Super Bowl.

    I'll say Colts, because they are more evenly matched with the Pats even though it's close. Starting at the QB position and Manning has a big edge over Rivers.

    Health of key players, advantage Chargers. The Colts seem to lose someone important esp on defense every year.

    On "knowing how to win" advantage Colts, but I can't figure out how the Chargers beat the Colts every year.

    This year in the playoffs the Charger with half a team beat the Colts and I'm pretty sure the Chargers handed the Colts their first loss of the season that year they started with 13 wins.

    I just don't think the Chargers have grown up yet

    I said last year when they got knocked out that the Chargers were the team to beat this year ... other than us ;) of course ... they are stocked and well coached.
