    Ravens game might be a loss to 1-1

    I never really go against the Bolts whenever I do any kind of Football pool, but I have this feeling that against a physical team like Baltimore, coming off the physical game against the Raiders which left us with injuries, we might fall to 1-1. So instead of being 3-1 to start the season, I'm thinking 2-2 instead. Baltimore is pretty good.

    Ravens game might be a win to 2-0

    I never really go against the Bolts whenever I do any kind of Football pool, but I have this feeling that against a physical team like Baltimore who's defense struggled against KC, coming off the hard fought game against the Raiders which left us with confidence, we might rise to 2-0. So instead of being 3-1 to start the season, I'm thinking 4-0 instead. San Diego is pretty good.

    Sarcasm?

    Seriously, I think the Chargers can and will win on Sunday. However, after Monday's game I can't see how you wouldn't lose some confidence in this game. I was very confident that the Chargers could match up and with against a physical Ravens team. Now I just think they can win and I'm concerned how our lines will handle this team.

    Go Bolts!

    You might be right, but I still think we can and should win this game.

    At home, home opener, our offense is a smidge better than KC, our defense is a smidge better than KC, etc.

    I think we will give the Ravens a handful. Never thought it would be a push over, and I am less confident today than last Sunday, but I think we will win.

    Go Bolts!

    just one thing about the ravens d# you should know...

    they did NOT struggle. stats to prove it:
    - 188 total net yards allowed
    - 29 total net yards rushing allowed (1.7y avg)
    - 3 qb sacks
    - 2/10 3rd down conversions allowed
    - only 10 "real" points allowed

    the other 14 points of the chiefs were:
    - blocked punt recovered in endzone for TD
    - 70y INT return to the ravens 2y line.

    so the ravens d# is still one of the best in the league!

    then again rivers is one of the best QB in the league and if norv shows some balls an let him air it out jackson and gates will come away with a pair of TD's each!

    28-24 win for the chargers :abq2: :abq2:

    Are you saying that KC's defense is better than ours? If KC can hang around for almost 4 quarters against Baltimore then we have a GREAT chance of winning. Back your team!

    You know we match up pretty good on paper.
    I mean the Chargers have an offense and the ravens have a defense.
    The ravens have an offense and the Chargers have a defense.
    The chargers have coaches and trainers and equipment people and a guy who squirts gatorade into their mouths when they're thirsty.

    The Chargers players all have helmets and cleats and pads and stuff.
    The ravens players all have helmets and cleats and pads and stuff..I can't find any advantage for either team...I think that this will end in a tie. Chargers go to 1-0-1...


    Now where is that sarcasm smiley...

    Yeah, it was sarcasm.

    I was mocking what was at the time the other (original) thread (now original post) saying the Chargers will lose.

    If you look at the wording, it's the exact same only with key words changed/added to put the positive spin on it.

    I am confident the Chargers can win, but I'm not really blowing off the concerns that are there.

    Raiders are a whole lot tougher than we expected. They will give teams fits this year. From what I saw they are currently a couple a notches below us right now, based on level of execution and fundamentals. AFC West just got a whole lot tougher. Look for them to be in the wildcard race come the end of the season.

    If we play like we played on Monday - there is a good chance we will lose.

    Baltimore's defense is still solid despite losing their DC and some beef and Flacco is a MUCH better QB than Jamarcus-I can't hit the boardside of a barn-Russell.

    However, we all know this team can do better and I was encouraged with how the play stepped up in the 4th quarter, especially the oline play with mooch at center and dombrowski at guard.

    I don't think Bennett will be on the inactive list this week either, regardless of LT's health. I'm confident in SciFi/Kaeding/Binn/Sproles to give us some ST help too.

    Not to mention - there will be another player in the building who I happen to think is pretty freaking outstanding - the 12th man. Gotta sell-out this game and give the birdies hell. :yes:

    This team has been playing to the level of the competition for the last two years, I don't see why I should expect anything different this season.

    We did not play inspired football, but I expect the team to be more mature than years past. They will learn a lesson from the Oakland game and come out guns blazin' on Sunday.

    We got this. :bolt:

    I predict the guys will come out like gangbusters like they did in Tampa Bay last year and WIN this Mofo!!!! Don't lose faith in our boys! They will adjust and come back STRONG for the home opener!

    It will be a hard game, sure. But the kind of 1-0 should
    give the team confidence. It's the home opener, too.

    Exactly. We don't ever lose by more than 7 points and usually win by a lot more so I like our chances a lot.

    I expect a game like that Chicago home opener a few years ago. Probably a few TDs than in that one though.

    Just have to stop that bloody Mason guy. He is a tough little dude that seems to hurt us a lot. I liked him a lot more when he was retired.

    I won't even mention Heap as we know we will struggle with him. Have pretty much given up on the lets try to cover a TE pipe dream.

    Anybody can second-guess the what ifs and the predictions can go one of two ways, let's just let the team settle the issue on Sunday, and we can all take off our armchair GM shirts for the day... Looking for a Bolt win!!!

    Pointy :tup: :icon_twisted:
