    8. As good as LaDainian Tomlinson looked on Monday night, Shawne Merriman looked even better. Too bad nobody was awake to see either of them.

    9. If must be nice having LaDainian Tomlinson in your backfield when you're making your first NFL start, huh?

    9. Why not higher after the methodical way they destroyed Oakland? Because when you run the ball 48 times and throw 11 passes, you're telling the world that your quarterback is not yet fully ready to challenge the world of the big arena.

    8. Monday Night Football turned into less a contest than a coronation, as the Chargers obliterated the Raiders in Oakland. This may be going out on an extreme limb, but San Diego probably has two future Hall of Famers on its roster - LaDainian Tomlinson (obviously) and Shawne Merriman, who, in his sophomore season, might already be the best pass-rushing LB in football. The game's all-time greats would gladly stand up and applaud these two special performers.

    Actually, we have three future HOFs. Antonio Gates will be even more dominant this year.

    Hell, we might have 4 HOFs if Rivers reaches his potential.

    Nah, we have more talent on the offensive side than the Raven have. We'll score at least 6-10 points on that defense.

    Five....I'd be shocked if LoNeal didn't make it as a fullback. If they let FBs in, he's in.

    We'll worry about Cromartie making it a HOF 6-pack later. :)

    God, everyone just needs to back slowly away from Baltimore's crotch. One game, and they have returned to their 2000 form on defense.

    Everyone wants to talk about the great offensive performance by the Ravens. Their offense essentially scored 13 points, since the D scored one TD and set the offense up inside the 10 for another. That hardly makes them the '94 49ers.

    Baltimore will struggle to make the playoffs in their division. But, once again, that won't dissuade people from anointing them a SB contender before next year.
