Default I think Sunday will be kinda rough

Lets face it, SD may be one of the worst teams in football. But Ladanian Tomlinson will probably run all over us, which is a weakness it seems. Things could get ugly.

The right side of their front 7 is Igor Olshansky (rookie) and Steve Foley (Texans cast off). Look for lots of runs over Wand and the left side.

Foley is not a bad player, he helped our D out alot last year. It will be tough but we will be a very good running team this week. We will win.

We will win, but it's gonna be tough because the NFL is always tough. This is the NFL, which stands for "Not For Long" if you're Jerry Glanville and you can't coach well and you shoot your mouth off about the fans in Houston, lol.

it doesnt matter if they have NO OLINE..what in the hell do you think he did last year? 2300 total yards of offence for LT. BTW they did upgrade the O line by adding goff and oben..i expect LT to top what he did last year

I dont think LT could keep it up for the whole game against our D. He may get some big plays but I doubt he'll dominate.

I don't think we will have a problem with Tomlinson. As a matter of fact, I believe the Texans will win this game by 10 points.

Ok. I see the point that LT is a great if not the greatest RB in the league. But the chargers can't run the ball the entire game. It seems that the starting QB is going to have to step up. Oh wait. It's Drew Brees huh? Sorry. 27-10 Texans

okay --- i'll avoid smak, cuz i'm all smacked out today..... so here is the truth about the Chargers..... compare what i say with what you observe in the game on sunday..

1) Tomlinson is virtually unstoppable.....

2) OL --- chargers fans have been ripping the OL to pieces for a couple years now.... but what it really comes down to is that OL can be separated into 2 catagories... run blocking and pass blocking.... the chargers run blocking part of it gets an "A".... the pass blocking part gets an "incomplete" at this point.... i'm happy to say that the chargers didn't give up one sack this preseason in 4 games.... we acquired Oben (starter in superbowl for Buccaneers) to play left tackle..... Fonoti is brilliant against run, getting better vs. pass...... our Center is a rookie --- yes, he is a rookie, but a very talented rookie (how many rookie centers were drafted at the top of the 3rd round? it's rare)... so then we have Goff who's known for being very good run-blocker and average pass blocker... Then we have Olivea (rookie) as our right tackle... Olivea is the biggest question mark..... sure he played perfectly in his 4th preseason game, but the game before that he was havnig some trouble... so as Texans fans, you'll want to mainly keep an eye on the right side of the chargers OL regarding getting any pressure on the QB... because Oben holds his own....

3) TE --- Antonio Gates is fantastic.... he never played a down of football in college, just played basketball... dropped off the radar in last years' draft.... so after he learned to play football last year, he started playing around the 9th game of the season --- then proceeded to improve quickly, then lit it up at the end of the season..... he's dominant in both phases, receiving and blocking and he's our 2nd biggest star on offense... you'll see a lot of him matched up with your coverage LBs.... good luck..

4) WR --- mostly unproven...... Eric Parker is as consistant as it gets, but he's not particularly amazing in any phase..... he just gets open and makes great catches... he's not a burner, but he's fast... (he's not Andre Johnson though)... Parker's problem has been injuries, not performance...... Caldwell is our phenonom with low IQ..... he's got everything you would ever want except a brain... so he's been a slow growth player --- our offensive coordinator, brees, and Schottenheimer seem to think he could be a pro bowler this year since he's finally "gotten it" in training camp this year ---- but us chargers fans would like to see him "get it" during a regular season game..... anyway, our WRs are mostly unproven, so you could expect to win this battle, but down count on it 100%... they will make some plays here and there..

5) Drew Brees is not the problem and everyone here in SD knows it..... He was never the problem...... his OL gave way too many pressures last year, thus the revamping of OL this offseason.. Brees won't go deep on you, but he seems to be the chargers greatest sack alluder of all-time.... he just senses pressure somehow and always manages to slip away... he doesn't take off and run for many yards, but he certainly knows how to avoid the pressure.. He has a little bit of accuracy issues when throwing over 25 yards...

6) The reason for the chargers terrible year last two years is because of the hideous defensive coordination of Dale Lindsay (who was fired after the season).... it was plain as day --- we have good talent on defense buy this Lindsay dumbass got his first chance ever to be a DC and he completely failed... by the end of the season, still the players were saying "who's got that guy, and who's got this guy, where i am i supposed to be on this play"..... schott took Lindsay's power away and had to friggin micromanage the damn defense in the middle of the damn games in the 2nd half of the season..... Thus the hiring of 3-4 master Wade Philips...... YES!!!!!!!!!!!

7) DL ---- you wont find one chargers fan that is unhappy with our DL.... serious bodies there...... basically 3 defensive tackles.......

8) our LBs are considered the deepest, strongest part of our team ---- yes, the chargers lead the league in sacks during the preseason, but that was just preseason.... we'll see what happens during the regular season...... Donnie Edwards is the leader on defense and is just plain great......

9) CBs ---- a couple of 1st rounders, Jammer and Sammy Davis --- we like our CBs a lot, but Dale Lindsay had them so confused, it was a catastrophy last year until Schott micro managed he damn defense...

10) Safties --- Terrance Kiel is awesome..... Wilson is average, but overall we like them a lot.....

it all comes down to the Defensive Coordinator.... That is the reason for the bad season last year...... our offense was perfectly fine other than weaknesses in pass blocking which have bee addressed this year in offseason..... the defense brought this team to the dregs.....

special teams are excellent in all phases except for one --- kick off distance.... Kaeding will kick mostly to about the 10 or 15 yard line, so expect to get some good field position in this way.....

good luck..... i still think the Bolts win by 10 or more, but hey, it's a game, anything can happen....

i agree with number 6 boy oh boy did lindsey suck.. .i mean he had jr seau marcellus wiley rodney harrison donnie edwards ben leber raylee johnson jamal williams quentin jammer prolly forgetting somebody but more than enough capable players on defense and would play weak *** zones instead of coming after the qb and then last year wouldnt blitz when the pass rush wasnt effective what an ***** he was i was callin for his head in 02 shoulda brought in bill arnsparger and replaced him with him instead of him just being an advisor...
oh and stan humphries was our best sack alluder... he just slung it 40 yards into tony martin's hands while gettin knocked the fug out lol

I am just amazed that Bolts fans feel it sooooo important to insert their own propaganda on an opposing teams message board. They have a hard time understanding *cough cough '12b' cough cough* that this team is only in its 3rd year. How long have the Chargers had to put a winning team on the field? If memory serves me correctly - I know that it is longer than 3 years - and even with that the Texans still had more wins last season then a team that has been around the NFL for decades. Just awful.

And should you be surprised that the Texans were last in a majority of categories - no. It was expected. Especially with as many unfortunate injuries and lack of depth that they had. Everyone knew that winning 6 games last year was a stretch for Houston. I just see your argument as wholly over hyped and ignorant - maybe the climate does something to people's brains in California.

The comments from Charger fans include this. A) LT B) an unproven Igor rookie and C) cast off veterans that were going to be cut anyway but Panos & Co decided to give draft picks away for them - akk emm **Oben** (clear throat)

Very impressive.

Well Tomlinson is. Not so sure about the rest.

You talk like your changing our minds or something.

Good game Texans. Seems the thing that killed us last year did your team in this year....turnovers. As you can see, the Charger O-line has improved vastly. Even with 2 ROOKIES and the entire O-line retooled, it is MUCH beter than we had last year. Dominick Davis and your receivers really impressed me

Another thing that will be an issue for your team will be the secondary . Our receivers are decent at best but your gonna have problems with Roy Williams and Hakim next week, Tony Gonzalez week 3, and Randy Moss week 5. Best of luck to your team.
