    didnt see it posted but on nfl.com they're saying hes nearly certain to miss the game against us

    game will still be tough but if gates is missing it just got alot more winnable

    Well given the impact Clark being out for the Colts had, I say that this means nothing.

    The Chargers could pull receivers out of the stands on Sunday and still make our pass defense look terrible.

    haha some good this will do. We'll likely just see a guy who likes similar to gates who has never played a down in the NFL going off.

    Should be available in your fantasy football leagues.

    Next GREAT TE to face the Texans.

    Randy McMichael

    McMichael is actually a good TE, he could very well rip us a new one.

    Yeah, I think Clark still had 5 catches Monday, and that was from IR. Gates just being out means 8-9 grabs.

    Oh well just means we'll see another 4th string no name TE like the Colts' Tamme go off for a bunch of yardage or TD's or both.

    A star will be born this sunday, mark your calenders.

    I like Philip Rivers, but he's no Peyton Manning. Gates out will hurt them alot. I'm not saying Texans won't win, or won't give up alot of yards, but the way it's shaping up... This is a game the Texans should, and must, win.

    Gates should consult Yao's doctor. He's had foot problems since that injury in that playoff game vs. Tennessee? (anyone remember what I'm talking about?)

    This is great news. Now some struggling career backup will have the 200-yard game he's always dreamed of.

    Good news: Gates won't get a record setting 300 yrds against us.

    Bad news: hurts my fantasy team :(

    One grocery stocker can burn us, why can't another?

    From a Chargers fan, here are a couple things you can look forward to:

    Gates will probably sit out
    Malcom Floyd will be out - #1 WR
    Legadu Nanee will be out #2 WR

    That is our starting lineup for receivering corps. Our only good/active receiver is Crayton, and he is a possession WR.

    I think the edge is with Houston.
