    I was just listening to 1090 and they had a NFL Preview show on with Boomer Esiason and some other dude. He did say that he thought the Chargers would win, but he was asked if there was an upset this weekend, which game would it be?

    He answered that the Pats over the Chargers. He said that he noticed that at the end of the season the Pats were playing much better.

    His number two upset was Eagles over the Saints, but he thought the Saints would win with the home crowd noise in a dome.

    We have been the under dog for most of the season. No one has given us a chance to do much of anything, yet we sit here 14 and 2 with the #1 seed.

    Let’s just not worry about what everyone else is saying, and let LT and Rivers and Antonio Gates, Shawne Merriman and Jamal Williams and the rest of the Chargers do the talking for us!


    We Believe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What?

    You want every national analyst to pick the Chargers?

    Boomers the only one I've seen who picked the Pats.

    Too much has been made of the Patriots "peaking" in time for the playoffs. Look at how they finished up:

    Win by only 7 AT HOME against Detroit.

    Lose 21-0 at Miami.

    Then close out with Houston, Jacksonville, and Tennessee.

    Not exactly Murderer's Row. The Pats are totally overrated.

    We are going to expose the Pats' lack of talent in their receiving corps, I think our DB's are going to step up tomorrow. :tup:

    New Orleans is only .500 at home this year. The astro turf hurts them, because they are not very fast on defense.

    Bryant Westbrook will run all over the 29th ranked run defense of the Saints.

    Yeah, that's funny. Most TV analysts I've seen this week have picked the Pats. If you look at espn.com, their "experts" mostly picked the Chargers, but on cnnsi, almost all of those guys picked the Pats.

    I agree that alot of those guys don't know more than me, otherwise they wouldn't be picking the Pats.

    The Patriots have yet to stop LT, he has ran for 134 yards, and 217 yards in the 2 Games he has played against them.

    Brady cant do anything when LT has the ball in his hands.


    AND, LT has a better Quarterback rating then Brady this year.

    The only reason why we arent given much of a chance is because this so called "playoff experience". Other than that, the Pats arent that great of a team everyone thinks they are. After we beat them, will we have the "experience" we need to win the super bowl? Im sure we will keep hearing this throughout the playoffs.

    Maybe Boomer is still a little pissed off because the Chargers beat his Bungles.

    When the Troy Aikman led Dallas Cowboys won their 1st SB of the 90's, they too had little or no playoff experience. It was Aikmans 1st playoffs, and his team was the youngest in the league. Result...A Super Bowl Championship.

    He also said that playoff experience is way overrated. The "dynasty torch" that the Pats have, will not be passed to our Chargers, it will be taken.

    I think he's already said he then thinks the ravens will beat the chargers the following week for the afc championship. And that the bears or philly or new orleans or seattle will beat the chargers in the super bowl. He's got it all worked out in his head.:icon_huh:

    im sick of what everyone is saying...and i cant wait till the game

    this reminds me of the beginning of the season when everyone doubted the chargers and most of us we taking about just wait till we beat the steelers and the broncos...just give us two more weeks and everyone will see...

    they have doubted our beloved chargers from the beginning...no one even expected them to have 10 wins. look at us at 14-2 with homefield advantage, best in the AFC, broken records galore and a healthy team going into the postseason. i say fukc em all!!!!

    well see what we are made of tomorrow.

    I don't have a problem with what Esiason said. Hey, give the Pats at least that much--they really haven't given people too much reason to doubt in the postseason. The fact that so many pundits are picking the Bolts goes to show how good the talent is on this team, because I have a feeling the Patriots would be widely favored in a lot of other matchups.
