    ive seen the same... they really dont even care. Except for a few youngsters trying to make a name for themselves its really been bad all around. Good news some may have their wish and have Norv be available.

    I am inclined to believe we can pull off a W in SD, but with Falco's ineptness on the road, I am not so sure!

    Their D is 19th against the pass but 3rd against the run, for what it's worth. Need to work the sidelines, slants and screens

    I'm not quite sure how this will turn out. They blasted us last year, but we took it to them previously and even handed them one of their losses during their 14-2 season.

    Then there's the Norv angle. Is this team going to rally around him and do their usual late season push or (hopefully) quit on him?

    I was talking to a co-worker that is a Broncos fan. He is saying that the Chargers can't stop the run and turn the ball over a ton. Also, he said the chargers are basically 4 games back in the division because they lost both to the Broncos.

    They are a -3 in the turnover margin so there's some truth to it. They do have a top 5 run defense. Perhaps that's misleading because no one runs on them preferring to pass? Maybe a deep dive into their previous box scores would provide some insight.

    Denver averaged 5.3 yards per carry and racked up 133 yards rushing on the Chargers.

    Re: Attention now turns to San Diego

    I don't really know what to expect in San Diego. While Vincent Jackson is gone, Philip Rivers is still very dangerous (sometimes to his own team, but still often to opposing defenses). And their run defense has certainly improved - thanks in part to one Jarret Johnson.

    What I'm really hoping to see is our offense actually become functional on the road. We were fortunate in Pittsburgh to face Leftwich, who couldn't do much of anything after his initial drive. 13 points is unlikely to get the job done against Rivers. It's time to show some punch away from M&T.

    I think this is a big litmus test for the Ravens. This is not because the Chargers are very good, but because of the background to the game.

    The Ravens can win games on the road against all manner of teams, yes. However, check the history:
    Ravens have failed to win back to back road games since 2008.
    The Ravens lost both times last year coming off victories against the Steelers.
    The Ravens have not won on the road after a victory over the Steelers since 2004. The last time they won a road game after winning at Pittsburgh was in 2001.
    The Ravens have only ever been unbeaten once in November - 2000.

    This game is also sandwiched between another game with the Steelers and flying out west to a team that outmatched us last year. While stats are just stats, it's a good time to overcome it.

    Think it'll say an awful lot to get the W in this scenario.
