    Chargers will have to stop the run, while the Steelers will have to stop Rivers from shredding their very un-Pittsburgh-like Defense.

    Um... Can anyone enlighten me on what our current roster situation is? Mostly he is currently on our 53 man roster. I may have missed it, but I dont remember us making any moves to create a spot for Gates... So just curious as to who is on the 53 at this time.

    From what I understand Gates is still on the exempt list. The Chargers have until the 13th (Tomorrow) to make a move to clear way for Gates.

    It is weird, but hey, it is what it is.

    It's Game Day! I hope that plenty of Chargers fans show up and help to unleash a verbal fury upon the Ben-less Stillers! And on the field the Bolts need to unleash a lightning storm both offensively and defensively, take a bite like junkyard dogs out of Mike Vick's azz! Time for a Monday night mayhem-filled scoring exhibition. I would like to see Melvin Gordon make the highlights with his first TD! It's going to be warm out there, but let's put some heat on the Stillers, chase them out of town with a Chargers victory!!! GO BOLTS!!!

    P.S. Conc, nice work on the thread starter. Who is this Rubio kid? I have seen a few of his drawings, seems like a spirited artist.

    The Bolts should take this game easy with the Stillers giving up 218.8 points per game, it's in the bag!!!!!!!.

    Jon Gruden likes Chargers rookie Gordon, but says Bolts aren't well set up to feature ex-Wisconsin star. http://utsd.us/1VOgaGP

    How does banged-up Chargers O stack up vs. Steelers D that Herm Edwards calls the Shower Curtain? Let's see: http://tinyurl.com/o38jyku

    Chargers D helped by injuries that strip Steelers of Big Ben, Pouncey, perhaps Bryant. The matchup: http://utsd.us/1Ox1BHa

    Just a word to the wise, I stepped outside a couple of minutes ago, it is raining, more like sprinkling, take it for what it's worth.

    Best of luck for the game tonight. Too late a start for me...Tuesday night football :unsure:. Will look forward to reading the thread in the morning...play nice lads and lassies.

    Now thanks to the laws set down from on high I can get my post game summary in:

    In the event of a win - yay magic result in spite of Telesco's suicidal propensity to trade draft picks and McCoy's perverse desire to trade up for players no-one else would have wanted; or

    In the event of a tie or loss - FFS that is entirely due to Telesco's suicidal propensity to trade draft picks and McCoy's perverse desire to trade up for players no-one else would have wanted.*

    :whistling:

    Because we're really attached to our 4th string RB.

    So wait, whats the situation with Gates? I originally was asking about the current 53 specifically for Gates eligibility. Conz "reported" From what I understand Gates is still on the exempt list. The Chargers have until the 13th (Tomorrow) to make a move to clear way for Gates.

    So although weird, can he play on the exempt list and then we clear a roster spot for him tomorrow? That really doesnt sound legit, but I dont know how these rules work. Also, if there was any required transactions, wouldnt we have to make our moves 24 hours prior to the game? And finally, what's with Michael Gehlken's tweet of us needing to clear a roster spot in order for Gates to play??

    I guess in TT we trust >< ?!? It would pretty much be a fireable offense if something like this was overlooked.

    Imagine TT going to McCoy during warmups and saying, "Oh, by the way, Nekkid Pics isnt dropping this 'issue', so we cant cut him so your gameplan to use #85 is not happening tonight... Sorry, but Good Luck though"

    Still a little bummed that we are entering a game with only 3 healthy WRs. 4 if you count Jacoby if he plays tonight.
