I have a feeling JC Jackson is going to get lit up like a gas can. Unless he plays a lot better than he did on Sunday. They’ll go after him for sure.
Allen didn’t practice again today so maybe he won’t play or, if he does, will not be 100%. Jackson can’t hang with a healthy Allen. Not that they don’t have other guys to challenge JC but one fewer weapon…

While the debris of this season settles, I will be surprised if Thornton ever catches a long TD for us.

I predicted a big lose for the Patriots. But that was with Corky Broken Vessel playing QB.

If Zappe is indeed taking the starter reps in practice and the offense is geared to his quick releases with an occasional deep shot, then this will prove to be a competitive, even entertaining game.

Toss up really.

And maybe Zappe will not prove crappy.

Zappe or Malik if he plays should keep it simple. Runs and quick passes. Chargers have the worst defense in the league so it shouldn't be too much to ask.

so no douglas or boutte at practice today. it is not out of the realm of possibility of this ******* duplicitous pond scum of a coach/gm to keep these guys out Sunday to hamstring Zappe and force the preferred Belichick offense of 45 runs and 7 passes and 2 fg attempts.

if we had run 45 times vs the giants we would have won. We lost because we were trying to throw the ball

Main thing I want to see with Zappe is if he can play directly under center. It was acceptable in year 1 but he should have learned by now.

If Brandon Staley really wants to get fired, this is the game to lose.

Shawne Merroidman looked like he took the reverse Barry Bonds path in his career…
