    Well, anything's possible. But this guy is trying everything he can to convince the reader that the Chargers got lucky against the Titans and are equally lucky to just be in the playoffs. He's a senile old twit and I don't even read his stuff. But I did only because you posted it, Shammy. Saying LT just isn't the same back is flat out stupid. He won the rushing title... for the second straight year!!! He also put that game away on Sunday with a brilliant second effort that very few backs would have been able to execute.

    And his Merriman comments? Please. I only noticed one instance where VY was able to break contain and scramble for a first down on SMs side. Also... the fumble he caused when he took out Chris Brown was the single biggest game changing play.

    Stupid old fart. He should just retire and go shiit himself in the convalescent home. :lol:

    Embrace the hate. It will help drive us through Indy.

    I love that this guy thinks we get smoked.

    Merriman had a sack and forced fumble.

    Has he had a monster year? No, but still had double digit sacks while teams double and triple teamed him. Teams game planned him by running away from him - even the forced fumble play was a run to Phillips side, but Merriman's hustle (and speed) allowed him to make that play.

    Dr. Z has long been a stat reading ball watcher. Idjut.

    I agree.

    The team will read these guys and all the predictions of us getting smoked.

    The pressure is squarely on Indy and the Pats this weekend.

    And how are the colts better than the chargers other than their qb. Who is good. But thats about it team personal wise. And that they seem to get unnaturally lucky breaks from the refs at important times in games played in coltsville.

    The only thing I'm worried about in the colts/chargers game is the refs. The refs can not be trusted in coltsville.

    I love it. Keep it coming.

    Let's see how outlandish and outsized our apparent "inferiority" gets.

    I guess Dr. Z missed this play ..... if he thinks Merriman didn't do anything.

    The way I see it is, there will still be a game played this coming Sunday in Indy. Oh, and this won't be the first time Dr z has been wrong.

    That ******* Dr. Z obviously doesn't understand that when your edge rushers are playing a running QB who is a ****** passer, you are better off staying level with him and keeping him in the pocket than you are going all out for the sack and letting him get outside.

    I understand us being the underdogs. But the predictions of a blowout just seem ignorant to me. We've always played Peyton tough. Our defense matches up very well with the Colts.

    If the Chargers beat the Colts, it would be far from the "upset of the year."

    Nice said. The game can go either way but the bolts needn't be nervous. A win would be the big deal a loss a just normal outcome for Mr. Z

    I think it's off-base to predict a blowout either way in this game.

    In fact, I think all 4 games this weekend will go to the wire. Outcome likely not to be settled until the final 2 minutes.

    Our game will definitely not be a blowout, but expect more points in the game than the conventional wisdom.

    If Jeff Triplette is the referee on Sunday, the conventional wisdom will not exist. Although, it did not come into play in the Charger game Triplette worked at Lambeau.
