    Anyone watch the video of Gates doin the press conference on the Chargers main page?

    He's talking about his injury, and he doesnt sound confident at all, it sounds like he's in pain and he's hoping for the game day hype to get him through it. Thats all you get out of these players now, you get guys trying to tough it out like Rivers and all they're gonna end up doing is making it worse. I have an extremely bad feeling about Antonio Gates this year, I think his performance is going to decline dramatically.


    But am I the only one who thinks this guy shouldn't be playing football?

    Well, I saw the interview, and while he does mention that the pain is day-to-day, he is confident that the injury is repaired. What he says simply follows what Retired Catholic has been saying all offseason - that this period of his recovery is breaking scar tissue loose, which hurts like hell but, in the end, amounts to just that - pain.

    Gates has never been an expressive individual when it comes to interviews, but I thought he was more expressive than he's ever been in that video; in a positive sense. He's excited, he is concerned about the pain and his ability to tolerate it, but he knows that he's on the home stretch now and he just has to end his rehab the right way.

    That's what I got out of it, anyhow.

    I think he's flat out lieing.

    I think he's in more pain that he wants to admit.
