    1. They are a 2 reciever offense with a bunch of TE's.
    We have very fast very physical linebackers and corners to handle them.

    2. The Patriots D is slow, very slow. Which makes them good against the run, but very vulnerable to the pass.
    In their haste to stop LT, their slow linebackers will match up very poorly against a fast TE like Antonio Gates.
    Harrison also most likely wont play again, or if he does he wont be 100%

    3. LT also matches up well in the slot against their big slow linebackers. And Turner can pound the ball.

    4. Tom Brady has been horrible under pressure, the evidence is every time he gets it.
    The Chargers are the best at creating pressure.

    5. The kicker, its in San Diego. The noise and excitement will disrupt the already mismatched offense of the Pats.


    Tell me what you think about this.:abq2:

    1. That's somewhat valid but with Gaffney now coming out it might be three Wrs (Caldwell, brown, Gaffney) and their multitude of TEs (most worrisome though is Ben Watson)
    2. Its slow but A. they can be moved off the line and B. they do have good pass rushers in Vrabel, Colvin and Seymour

    4. But he's still Brady and that means never take him for granted

    My biggest concern is if the pasties come out with that no huddle and score a coupla quick TDs.

    We've gotten off to a slow start the last coupla weeks and if we do next week bellycheck could make us pay.

    I hope we see 2 back sets... with LT motioned out to slot and then mix it up, run pass etc.

    On D I hope we play tight with lots of bump and run so we have time to get pressure..

    Manu and Gates will have to dominate to open up lanes for LT. I see a huge game for Marcus McNeil and Marlon McCree.

    I am getting all giddy over this ****.....bad.....real bad.

    I held my first gameday throwback and regular helmet today.

    Destiny awaits.....

    Gaffney is a garbage WR, it wouldnt make a difference if he did. Florence or Cromartie could run circles around that guy hes so slow.

    I thinkt the Pats take Brady for granted honestly, he seriously should have been picked off 3 or 4 times today. His stats dont show how sloppy he looked.
