    Attention now turns to San Diego



    Tough trip to a inconsistent and flawed by dangerous team. How do we go about beating these guys? Would be a huge win to go 9-2 and all but clinch a play off spot early (I know we can't really officially clinch, but are any AFC teams apart from Indi going to get 9 wins outside of the division winnders?).

    San Diego has some serious o-line issues. Phillip Rivers has been getting hit a ton, and he's been had to throw under pressure a lot this year. If we can get some decent pressure on Rivers, we should walk away with a win.

    I am sure Jared Gaither will get "motivated" to play and have his best game of the year....then immediately go on IR.

    They don't have the most rowdy fans, and we seemed to travel pretty well there last year, I'd say that it might be a chance to start up the no huddle offense again. I'd say that we also need to make our commitment to Jones a kick returner, as that was a weapon that we weren't using earlier the in season. And ultimately, it's going to be about getting to Rivers: getting sacks, batting down the balls, and trying to disrupt him.

    I could see this game going either way - big loss or big win. They have put up some serious numbers against the Ravens but they've struggled this year. Their defense is not what we faced last night by a long stretch, so the offense should be able to find some holes.

    Ravens are favored right now by 2 points.

    But the Chargers are missing Vincent Jackson which is a huge loss for them. It's not the same team we faced last year. That being said, Rivers can still make plays.

    The Chargers have no receivers right now. Gates is old and hurt. Floyd is decent. Their OL sucks. Their D isn't that great.


    Still, this is a road game...on the west coast...and they get up to play the Ravens. The Ravens could still botch this game BIG TIME. Plus, I'm sure they are going to be leaning heavily on Jarrett Johnson for information and tendencies.


    The Chargers, from what I've seen, have already packed it in for the season. They are playing uninspired football. That could be the biggest advantage the Ravens have heading into next weekend.

    It's a tough long trip, and last year we got killed there. Winning would all but assure a playoff spot very early in the season.

    Could go either way, they have some talent but like others have said, they aren't the same with out Vjax, and Gates is a shell of himself. If last night's D shows up, we'll win.

    I see a L here. West Coast trip sandwiched in between the two best games of the year, it just seems like an easy trap to come out flat. We'll see. Certainly hope I'm wrong.

    It seems that way. I think Norv Turner and AJ Smith are done in SD.

    Hate to be pessamistic, but Rivers has our number like Maryland had his. However, he has played like boler of late, a TO machine. Add to the fact that we got better with Smith ot, and Graham in. The D seems to be coming on litle by little game after game. I'm glad this isnt a national night game, the seem to play much better. Going out after an early Thanksgiving dinner, lots of friends to catch up with. Anyone else going?

    A lot of that is because San Diego has no OL and their WR's are average at best.
