    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.

    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.

    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.

    The nation seems to think that we'll win so far:

    I Can't Forsee Tomlinson Dominating Our D...125 Yards? Possibly...200 + Yards? Not Likely...This Should Be An Easy Win For Us...

    I think the game rides on us establishing our running game early and often, with the Chargers secondary 3rd and long situation could be tough to convert. The chargers 3-4 has me slightly apprehensive as our running game was non-existant against the only 3-4 team we played this preseason (steelers,) on the flipside of course is that the O practices against a 3-4 week in and week out so they should certainly be familiar with how to block against it. I do expect us to win, though I'm not predicting a blowout, I think our O-Line and D will need some time to get in synch before we start ripping teams.

    Game's are not won on paper remember when the Texans played the winless Bengals and were apparently on their way to a easy victor....... oh by the way we got our butts kicked ....we are playing a professional team on the first game of the season stats don't mean squat :thumbdown

    The Chargers get two 1st rounders next year (courtesy of the Eli Manning trade). They better spend one on the O-line and one on the front 7 on D. They should end up with one of the top 3 picks in next year's draft (San Fran and Arizona are competition and play each other twice). Perhaps they could get the stud LT they passed in this draft.

    LT is only half your problem.........

    Antonio Gates is your other.....

    And Igor on defense will frighten your OLine..guaranteed.

    Our defense isnt like last year folks...you know ill be on back on monday to give you "i told you so"s .......

    Ill go so far as to say Wes Welker will be an eye opener to you as well.

    YOU ARE GOIN DOWN AND YOU HAVE REASON FOR YOUR CONCERN ON THESE BOARDS :hehe:

    Wow. A Charger fan. I didnt know they existed. Nice try troll. Wes Welker; wasnt he the guitarist for Limp Bizkit? Good luck Sunday, and enjoy the #1 pick in the 2005 draft.

    Two years ago the Chargers delivered an eye opening beat down of the Texans. That game was maybe the ugliest game in a season full of ugly games.

    There's no way in the world I can see the Texans not preparing for the rematch. They're going to go out there and bring the payback Sunday. As nice as it is to see a Chargers poster talking up his guys (Whoever they are? Anybody know any of those other guys besides LT? Are you sure they're on your team Charger fan?) it won't make any difference. The Chargers are two years waiting to get this butt kicking.

    The Payne Train's coming.

    With all due respect to you Houston folks here, I think you are in for a rude awakening on Sunday. True you have a nice crew of newly uninjured players. However, have you taken time to look at the preseason work of both teams? Your offensive front is going to get worked over, badly. They simply don't match up well against our um, no-names. Your back is skilled, but our run defense is not going to give him room. Watch the tape.

    On offense, you will not stop our run, period. In the air, Dunta, who played too agressively all preseason, will be exploited often. Your sole hope and bright spot in the entire game is a potentially good pass rush, but just as you point to the rookie's in our O-line, you are relying on one in your rush.

    31-13 Chargers. I'll be back on Monday to gloat. As far as the rest of your season goes, I wish you good luck, I like Carr, he's got heart.
