    Figured I get this going with some Chargers-Jets playoff talk. I hope Jets Trolls don't make this thread end up in the forgotten land of "Smack Talk". :icon_rofl:

    I can't believe we have to wait a whole week until the game. UGH.

    Some interesting stats between the 2 defenses.

    Chargers Defense-35 sacks, Jets 32 sacks.

    Chargers Defense-14 Int's, Jets 17 Int's.

    Chargers Defense had 4 TD's, Jets Defense had 3 TD's.

    Both Special Teams had 1 TD return each.

    I don't think the Jets "D" is all that. It's good, but not Ravens 2000 good IMO, as Rex Ryan implies they are, and Jets fans seem to think they are.

    We can score 17 and easily win this game. :tup:

    The Jets' D is good & Revis is a stud at CB, but they can't cover all of our weapons.

    If Rex chooses to blitz, Rivers will eat them alive.

    The recipe that won the Titans game can win this one as well.

    Jets cant run if the Chargers go up on them early.

    That said, regardless the Chargers will never quit.

    Which road team is most likely to win next week?
    22% Cards at Saints
    12% Ravens at Colts
    46% Cowboys at Vikes
    9% Jets at Chargers
    11% None: All will lose

    Is it really still Monday?!??! This is going to be a long week...

    There is really no reason that the Bolts should drop this game. Anything can happen and there are some aspects which go in the Jets favor, but the Chargers best game should not allow any room for the Jets to steal a win.

    Can't wait.

    Here are 10 key questions concerning the AFC divisional round:
    Which home team is the most vulnerable?

    The Colts. They were pretty shaky in some wins at Lucas Oil Stadium, the most notable of which was a win against New England that easily could have gone the other way had the Pats not gambled and lost on a fourth-and-2 call late in the game. The Ravens have a strong enough defensive front to give the Colts problems because they aren't likely to allow Indianapolis' poor running game to suddenly get good. If Terrell Suggs is on his game, he could force Peyton Manning into some mistakes. The Colts also have been in shut-down mode since Week 15, so they could have some rust.

    Why isn't rust a factor with the Chargers?


    Because they are the hottest team in the league, having won their final 11 games. Even when they gave Philip Rivers and other starters some rest in the season-finale, they played full-throttle. And no quarterback is performing better than Rivers. He has been a playmaking machine, while being extremely efficient. With good protection, he is absolutely deadly. Giving Rivers time will allow his prolific receivers (Vincent Jackson, Antonio Gates, and Malcolm Floyd) to get open, even against the best of secondaries.

    Can the Jets' blitz-happy scheme succeed vs. Rivers?

    No. The Jets will take their chances, but Rivers is too cool and too quick to get rid of the ball. By selling out to pressure Rivers, the Jets will leave themselves vulnerable to Gates, as well as to LaDainian Tomlinson and Darren Sproles, to whom Rivers will often throw screens. No one will ever confuse Cincinnati's Carson Palmer, whose poor passing didn't allow the Bengals to take advantage of the many coverage openings the Jets created with their blitzing, with Rivers.

    Is Mark Sanchez ready to step up to the challenge of facing the Chargers' defense on the road?

    Not likely. Although he was highly impressive in his first NFL playoff game, his second will be dramatically different. The Chargers have a stronger pass rush than the Bengals. They can bring pressure off the edge, which is likely to limit Sanchez's ability to have the sort of success he enjoyed on roll-out throws in the Cincinnati game. Playing in the divisional round, against a much stronger opponent, will likely remind him that he is a rookie.

    Who is the best coach?

    Norv Turner. He has kept the Chargers performing at a high level. He has encouraged cohesiveness, which allowed them to overcome their early-season struggles and turn red hot. You could also make an argument for the Jets' Rex Ryan. His bold and brash persona isn't all that is worth noting about him. Ryan did a superb job of preparing his team to play its best in its last two games. Of course, both of those lopsided wins came game against the struggling Bengals. But Ryan deserves credit for guiding his team into the playoffs and for putting together a defensive plan that worked effectively against Palmer and the rest of the Bengals' offense.

    Which team has the best chance of reaching the Super Bowl?

    San Diego. Besides being the hottest, the Chargers also are the most complete team in the divisional round. They seem to match up well with all of the remaining teams in the playoffs. The only thing that seemingly could stop the Chargers is themselves.

    As Buck and Conc have already mentioned, we already know how to beat this team. Same way we did Tennessee.

    Score early and often, then watch it get out of hand quickly. Force Sanchez to beat us w/ his arm. Enjoy victory cocktails.

    Just got done listening to the BOLT TALK podcast. I'm very pumped up and can't wait until kick off. Great job with everyone calling in and showing their support. It's going to be hard waiting these last few hours. I'm being bombarded with Rex Ryans big mouth and Revis greatness talking. I'm sick of hearing it. WE NEED TO SMACK THEM IN THE MOUTH, so hard they will never forget it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :icon_toast: :trout: GO CHARGERS!!!!!!

    I guess today is a late start for the posters too...

    I would love to stick around and post on the "Official Game Day" thread, but I have to head down to the stadium and bring the noise!!

    Memo to Rex Ryan: Talking doesn't win games, prepare to be schooled by the blue and gold!!

    Now...let's beat these people!!!!

    Charger fans: Get loud!!!, stay loud!!!!!!
