    I know we play the Raiders this week, but that team is such a joke it's not even worth mentioning what it will take to beat them. LT owns the Raiders. Put LT and 10 taco venders on the field and the Raiders still lose.

    Not even worth the time to discuss a team as pathetic as the Raiders, so I'm skipping to the following week against the Bills.

    Keys to beating the Buffalo Bills

    1) Rattle J.P. Losman - Losman has struggled as Buffalo's starter and has shown he's more than capable of making mistakes, especially if he's facing a strong pass rush. Buffalo's offensive line hasn't done a good job keeping defenders off its quarterback and with Merriman back they're going to have a long day.

    2) Force 3 and Outs - We can't leave our defense out there all day. Merriman will be back and the rest of the defense will be rested after an easy win over the Raiders, but with our high powered offense, we need them on the field as much as possible.

    3) Win the Special Teams Battle - Turner has done a great job as kick returner. Need to make sure our kick coverage team consistantly prevents any big gains.

    4) Get the ball to our playmakers - Need to get Gates the ball. He's clutch receiving the ball. Give the Bills a huge dose of LT.

    5) Stay out of 3rd and long situations - We can get a first in 3rd an long situations much of the time, but if we get a lot of 2nd or 3rd and short situations, we will dominate.

    6) Control the Clock - We score so quickly these days that we could experience one of the major problems Air Coryell had. If we score to quickly, it puts our defense on the field for to long. Mix some quick scores with long sustained drives and the Bills won't have a chance. Not like they realy do anyway.

    I know we're not concentrating on the Bills yet, but the Raiders are such chumps, we need to start thinking about the Bils. Maybe give some of our key players a rest this week against the chumps. The Raiders have less of a chance of beating us than a showballs chance in hell. ...and that's being generous.

    The most important thing is that we need to beat the weather because that is why they're gonna beat the Jags this week

    I think this team is built to play well enough in cold weather.

    A friend of mine lived 2003 as a student for one year in the neighbourhood of Buffalo. He was freezing, too, visiting 3 Bills-games
    in those days. But you get used to it and take warm clothing.

    McGahee will be back, so that concerns me a little. But so will #56. He is going to play the rest of the year with a MASSIVE chip on his shoulder. Losman better look the hell out.

    #56 will be on fire, and that gives polarris a chance to rotate in and out on downs.

    The biggest key to winning is for us to show up. The Bills just like the Raiders are going to get annihilated.

    yeah, if we turn up thinking that we're going to win easily so we don't try as hard as we usually do then we lose. This is a Trap game so just treat it like any other game

    We can play in the cold just fine. We just need to have a dominating day on defense to send the message to the rest of the league that the Charger D is fully fired up and ready to play like the superbowl defense that we all know it is. Even if we start out flat (again:() I fully expect Shawne to have so much emotion and motivation that it will carry through the whole team:yes:

    Offense
    1. Utilize our size over the DBs
    2. Beat back the Bills defensive line from hte get-go
    3. McNeil has to shut down Aaron Schobel

    Defense
    1. Beat the crap out of JP Losman
    2. Don't let Lee Evans or Roscoe Parrish get deep
    3. Keep McGahee from running on the inside

    Special Teams
    1. Cover Parrish at all times
    2. Make your kicks count
    3. Good returns
