    The idiot picked us to lose this past weekend. Now he has us ranked #3. At least he came to his senses.

    1. New England (8-0). Everyone looks at Sunday's game against the Colts as the biggest challenge in the Patriots' bid for an undefeated season. Agreed. But the other game that has a chance to be competitive -- notice I didn't say "the game they have a chance to lose?'' -- is the Monday-nighter on Dec. 3 at Baltimore. No team gets up for a prime time, national TV game like the Ravens.

    2. Indianapolis (7-0). Fourteen minutes left, fourth quarter, Colts up 24-7, second-and-goal from the Panthers' 1 ... and here comes Dan Klecko, who is to Manning what Mike Vrabel is to Brady. Klecko lines up in the slot, and at the snap of the ball runs free into the end zone! Tweet! False start. There goes another TD catch for Brandon Stokley Jr.

    3. San Diego (4-3). After 28 minutes at an ashy Qualcomm, the Chargers were up 35-3. They're back, baby.

    He's only ranking us so high because he read the last thread about him, what a tushy licker. But I'll take it. Are we seeing what we expected to see all along this season? Or are we just bashing bullshit teams? I'm a little confused on how to take our turnaround, but I will definitely not rock the boat.

    He had us at three last week too.

    I can't figure out why were aren't a bit more of a story... nfl tonight, inside the nfl, espn, they BARELY cover our highlights. They don't talk about Chris Chambers, analize our defense, talk about rivers, or even project whether we win or lose. Freaking sucks.

    This is what we expect to see. Us beating teams that we are supposed to beat, and being competitive in each game. If we played this way against KC and GB, we'd be sitting here with only 1 loss. Oh well, no use looking back now. We're riding a 3 game winning streak.

    I guess what I mean more importantly, is what we are witnessing the sign of things to come, and is this what a new coaching staff getting on the same page should look like, it's been so long I don't remember, well I don't remember many of our staff's every being on the same page. Rivers throwing 11 times in a blowout is something I can get very used to though, very reminiscent of big bens super bowl season, only PR is much better.

    !~BOLT~!, I told my wife the same thing yesterday the Sam thing about Rivers #'s and Ben's being comparable. Don't make the young guy win it for you, let your STARS do it.

    Absolutely RTL, only once again, Rivers is a Qb that "can" win us games.

    Nice thing about the team now, is that we can legitimately beat you in multiple ways. We know what LT brings, and have seen PR carry the team. With a proven #1 receiver in Chambers, defenses can't just key on Gates. So yeah, this last game is a sign of things to come.

    • More dangerous offense
    • Much improved defense (especially in pass coverage) that is yielding only an average of 9 points over the last 3 games.

    I wouldn't have put us as high as three either:icon_shrug: I'm loving the 3 game winn streak, but none of those 3 teams particularly impressed me before we played them. I hope we continuie to roll at Min next week, because after that we enter the toughest stretch of the season IMO. It was really nice not not see Rivers though an Int, but he did still seem to be staring down at least Gates some.

    Great game! Let's keep it going!

    Let's slip by. I think it stressed our guys out last year.
