    You are right that we should definitely be favourites, even if only slightly.

    But I am so glad that I finally get to see another live Chargers game on TV. All I can get over here is ESPN...so the last live Chargers games I watched on TV (as opposed to online, etc.) were the Steelers and Broncos disasters! Things sure as heck have changed since then!

    I am going to be on the couch chillin' and cheering the team on as opposed to hunching over my computer screen.

    we're only underdogs b/c we're the away team -- titans are hot right now, they play hard and have a fierce running attack (something we have struggled to handle all season long).

    i wouldn't put too much stock into it - or get bent out of shape - sometimes it's better to be the underdog :)

    There is a lot of hope for us in the fact that Miami went over there and lost in overtime. Miami are good, but we're better.

    Absolutely. We can certainly win this game but like today's game vs. Cincy it won't be easy, especially in their house.

    3pt underdogs is just no biggie tho - it's def not a sign of disrespect and may even change over the next few days depending on how injuries shake out and how people start placing their bets in vegas...

    We are 9-0 in our last 9 games.
    Titans are 7-2 in their last 9 games.

    We are a pretty decent road team this year, at the very least we should be the favorite. :yes:

    I'm taking the Chargers and the points. :yes:

    We beat the Titans and we LOCK UP the 2nd seed :tup:

    (And at the same time keep Tennessee out of the playoffs with 8 losses)

    I just hope that Fisher & his cheap-shot artists don't beat us up for the post-season. :icon_evil:

    Reason being is prolly cuz the titans are more desperate than we are this a most win game for them if they want a chance to get a wildcard spot. Where as we are already in the playoffs and even if we lose, if we win the last game at home vs skins, we still clinch #2 spot and a bye. Oddsmakers take a lot of things in consideration when making a line for any game.

    Because Chris Johnson is the best RB in the NFL.

    We have to stop a hot Vince Young, and Chris Johnson. No easy task. These guys bring it every game. They will be fighting for their play off lives. It will be yet another smash mouth game. This mountain is not an easy climb, to get to the Lombardi.The game is in Tennesee, and it will be cold. This game will be a big time challenge. Another great test for the Chargers.

    And don't forget .... we're playing the cheap-shot artists of the league & their piss-ant headhunter coach.

    I can accept a loss if we just come out healthy.

    I think the Titans are the dirtiest team in the NFL...

    IMHO

    this is my biggest fear, if the Chargers lose then they'll win the #2 seed against the redskins at home

    Remember the point spread is set to try and get an even number of bettors on both sides.

    San Diego being hot and Tennessee being hot at home...and a normal 3 pts is swung to the home team. Titans fighting for their playoff lives.

    The line looks actually about right, to me.

    Chris Johnson and Vince Young are definitely keeping the hope alive for the Titans. Still a far cry for them to actually win over the Chargers. Any score predictions here?

    Kevin Mawae is second only to James Harrison as far as dirtiest players in the league... **** that guy. Hope he gets his ****ing arm torn off.

    Just heard on 1090am (and confirmed on NFL.com) that the Titans just put 2 starting linebackers on IR today Bulluck and Thornton. That makes their defense a less formidible.

    It will still be a tough game but it is good news for us...and bad news for Titans fans.

    It'll be a good one with a lot of emotion and intensity. Let's just hope the cheap shot artists play with more dignity and we can come out of this one without any new injuries. *KNOCK ON WOOD*

    Chargers 23 Titans 20 in OT.

    With both their staring MLBs down, the middle of the field should be ripe for Gates.
