    This sundays game at Buffalo is another we should win. I say should simply because we are a better team than the bills are. Denver and KC, especially KC, are the more important games we need to win. Do we sit the questionable again and hope we pull the DUB out or do we try to go full force? I believe Merriman will make a huge difference on the defensive side of the ball so I dont see Marty rushing back Castillo if he cant go. But as far as KMAC, Dielman, and the others that didnt play, what do you think we should do?

    Rest the horses but have them at the ready. The Bills are an AFC opponent and the Conference records are looming large as tie breakers for seeding.

    So if we dont rest them and use them sunday, is that saying we dont have confidence in beating denver and kc the next couple of weeks? Or vice versa?

    It was a calculated risk to hold most of those guys out of yesterday's game. However, I think half of them could've played. I think this being a road game, they will play. It is important that the Chargers establish a playoff spot before trying to establish homefield advantage and perhaps even a bye. Thus, I think if they can go they will. Marty is pretty cautious with injuries, so he won't have a guy play if it may cost them more weeks than this coming game. As for Denver and KC, those are perhaps the biggest games remaining on our schedule. We need to lock up the AFC west crown. :bolt:

    I do not think it has anything to do with confidence and everything to do with knowing we still have a long road. We have guys who are critical to have healthy to get us over the hump.

    Buffalo should be a cakewalk realistically. It sounded like Castillo could have played yesterday but the Chargers were cautious.

    Rest no one. Play all who are healthy. Rest those who can't play effectively but play everyone else. We are going across country to play a gutsy little Buffalo team that has won a couple in row. This is not a game I want to take lightly.

    I dont think we take this team lightly. They are far more dangerous than the chokeland team. Better receivers can burn us if we dont get pressure on Lostman.

    Not really. :no:

    Oakland is last in OFFENSE and Buffalo is three spots away from the dead last Raiders.

    http://www.nfl.com/stats/teamsort/NFL/OFF-TOTAL/2006/regular?sort_col_1=4

    Buffalo has a way worse defense than Oakland's defense.

    You can let us win and focus on your division. :icon_shrug:

    Seriously, our O line is rather poor [to be polite - look at the number of sacks we allowed] and our run defence has been a letdown.

    Yeah, we finally beat a team with a winning record and we won two in a row. This will bring the team back to earth and the weather will not be a factor. I say 41-9 Bolts. Talent, coaching and player for player the Bolts are better, but you know what they say 'any given Sunday'.

    I'll be there 12 rows from the field in section 114. Whoever else besides megold0715 is going to The Ralph have fun and enjoy the game.

    I'll look for the BoltTalk signs! :icon_mrgreen:

    Whether we win or lose I'll eventually post the photos and video footage from my seating perspective. If I am not too sluggish I may try to catch some of the pregame warmups ... maybe an autograph from LT too!

    Bolt fans have no beef with Bills fans other than the Conference rivalry but other than that there is nothing for bad blood.

    In other words, you never punked us at anything which left an impression. :icon_mrgreen:

    How do we attack? Well, considering we haven't won jack sh*t yet... we attack with all guns blazing. We got away with one against the second worst team in the league. The game was close partially because Marty decided to rest some guys who could have played. We can't afford to lose any games right now. So I wanna see McCree, Castillo, Dielman and the other "Walking Wounded" at least start the game.

    Everyone can rest for Arizona.

    The main problem for this time of year is injuries. Hopefully the guys we really need for the push to the playoffs will get healthy. :icon_eek:

    Wow.

    Cranking on the nut vice of our walking wounded when we are looking at a 19 game season with 11 under our belts.....hmmmm....

    I say easy simba !!!

    Buffalo should be had with the same scrubs we fielded yesterday.

    Fortunately, we have ol' "Lights Out....Needle In" back in the fold threatening to spike others supplements and feign ignorance which translates into bad news any way you slice it and dice it. :yes: :bolt:

    Keeping it simple is the best plan.

    This is a big game for us!! If for whatever reason we looked past this game and the Donks and Chefs manage to win, we are only one game up with four to play and still have to play both of them! Anybody on this team who says coach I can play put him in! This W could be a deciding factor!

    Nobody is looking past anyone in the NFL. Fans included.

    This team can win out and has proven it can win without Merriman/Castillo against one of the best AFC teams at their home in the Broncos.

    If key players are not 90% or better, sit their ***. The Bills are not a powerhouse team.

    Our front 7 is back intact which is huge so this gives us space to rest a McCardell and play VJ or rest a McCree and play Clinton Hart or rest Dielman and play Mooch (Mzkowski-whatever) etc etc etc....

    Otherwise, you are burning out the race horses which got us here and we are only barely beyond half way through the race.

    I'm just sayin'... Buffalo has won two straight and they just beat a pretty good Jacksonville team. Suit everyone up, start the guys who can afford to be out there and win the game. Nothing would piss me off more than losing to Buffalo because they chose not to play guys who could have been the difference.

    That's all I'm sayin'.
