    Looks like with the division clinched, there's no rush to bring anyone back too soon... either way, sounds like everyone will be back for the playoffs. Wouldn't mind see Castillo play a quarter or two next week and the raiders game just so he doesn't enter the playoffs totally cold. But good news all around.

    LaDainian Tomlinson
    Running Back
    Chargers
    News:
    Tomlinson admitted on Monday that he felt his hamstring grab at the end of his 49-yard run just before halftime of Sunday's game, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. He said he could have continued playing, but the game was in hand at that point and there was no real reason to risk an injury. He did some running on Monday and said the hamstring was fine.

    With an extra day too this should allow the guys to keep resting up. I could forsee Merriman playing but only on third downs or obvious passing situations (keep him fresh). Same goes with Castillo when he comes back; keep Cesaire in starting but rotate Castillo in over the next few games to let him get back into the groove.

    LT/Turner/Sproles just keep rotating them in and out. Cut LTs carries to ensure he's fresh, let Turner and Sproles take some more of the load since its obvious they can

    I could see the Bolts skip the cheatin' Donks as far as injuries to Merriman and Castillo.....but let them play as the game dictates against the Raiders.....we do wanna keep our streak vs Oak and get Castillo and Merriman "into the flow" going into the playoffs.

    Would kind of like to see LT get another rushing title. He doesn't look too tired at this point. Would also like to see him compiling more and more quals for the records he hasn't broken yet.

    what your missing here is. If the jags play the pats before we play either then they might beat the craap out of each other. And with a bad field the jags just could beat the pats and we'd then possibly get to play the jags at qualcomm for the championship. :yes:

    That 3rd seed could get us to that point. Were probably still gonna have to play indy in indy. But I think we all think that the chargers could kill the colts in indy. Got to win that first game though against either cleveland or pittsburgh. Which I think we can do.

    What you are missing is we WILL beat the crap out of whomever we play.

    All teams in the playoffs are good.
