    What to make of the Chargers? Of all the playoff teams, San Diego is by far the most perplexing. The offense is explosive -- especially the last two weeks -- but the defense has been pedestrian.

    And yes, the Chargers got on a roll the last few weeks, but it didn't beat any good teams. It turns out the Bucs and Broncos were in downspins of their own, which doesn't tell us a lot about the Chargers. That's not true about the Colts.

    Frankly, it's hard to pick against the Colts. They've won nine straight games and they've done it in several ways. One week it was the offense, another week the defense stepped up or other weeks both units thrived.

    Indianapolis just finds ways to win games. That's it's biggest strength right now. It's responded to every challenge for more than two months. Winning on the road -- and getting playoff revenge from last season -- is another challenge I think the Colts will overcome.

    Pick: Colts

    Novacek has been pick against us all week so nothing has changed. We weren't supposed to win last year on the road either, and now were supposed to lose at HOME with an even healthier team. We'll win by at least 2 tds and make all the naysayers look like idiots again.

    I think it will be close, but the idiots are never called on their lousy predictions and "analysis." Have you heard of anyone calling out any of the "idiots" who predicted a blowout last year in the playoff game?

    How come these ex-players can't just watch the games & shut their stinkin traps!!

    I guess Jay "The Greek" Novacek has all the answers (LoL). I wonder what he'll have to say after the Bolts whack the Colts. I know he better man-up & give the Bolts there props or the Novacek lynch mob will be on the way to his crib!

    :icon_huh: :tdown:

    FWIW I have picked the Chargers, Cards, Dolphins and Eagles to win this weekend and I've put my money where my mouth is. Straight up got the bet at 18/1.

    I thought we would roll Indy last year and we did. We just don't have that spark this year. And we certainly don't have the pass rush. I hope I'm wrong.

    Reasonable pick by Novacek.

    on ESPN most "bigheads" pick for the away teams.

    I think it will go 2-2. Hope the Chargers get their share.

    Rivera dialed up a great game and the D executed. Defensive game ball goes to Rivera.

    Bolts played at another level tonight. Without the mistakes it's a blowout.

    Incredible.
