In that case, the last game was in 2008. These teams I am sure are different in 2012 (at least I can say assuredly that this is not the same Chargers team). For once the Chargers have slot receivers and Norv is employing two-TE sets and some trickery. We might lack a #1 WR in Jackson, but we've made up for it by incorporating a diverse receiving attack.

Now if Meachem will just click, this talk will truly come to fruition.
Right, of course were not facing the same chargers as 08, but to the same token this isnt the same falcons. Its only been 2 weeks so none of us can get a true read on our teams. As a falcons fan of course im going to feel confident about this one. However, I'll give SD credit and wouldnt be surprised if your boys win. This game wont have any major implications down the road other than W/L so I'll be able to stomach a loss. Good luck to you guys, just not too much. Hoping for no injuries. Meachem should wait a week to click. Posted Image

Yep. Posted Image

But maybe the new number will be 2012? 8-1 would be embarrassing.

I'm in the survival pick league and I just can't bring myself to decide on a team to pick, this entire week is sketchy.  

This game bothers me because of the travel and short week, but I have a feeling this game won't be very close in the second half, much like the Chiefs game.  Edwards and Abe will have good games, Biermann as well.  Julio and Co. will probably blow the top off of SD's secondary and Ryan has another big game.

38-10 Falcons

I think you're going to see our D light up the Chargers for more turnovers. I think the D will set the table for the O in this game as well. I think we win this on a Matt Bryant kick and not running away with it. SD is at home and will probably play well but not good enough to beat the Boys From the South.

Its gonna be interesting but with the LT issues for the chargers I can't help but think turnovers at some point.

That long road trip BS is so overated. Jerry Glanville went undefeated on the left coast one year and handed out a California trophy. Smitty is riding a 5-0 west coast streak. Just stop with the jet lag crap.

Ever travel to Cali for business?  No?

If those idiots line up cocktails and rag Michael (with signs) for getting arrested, I can see Sunday getting very ugly for SD. Our team is a ticking time-bomb with an offense that wants to be hard to stop.

I think Steelers or Bears are a good pick for survival.

You're really disrespecting the Chargers with your 38-10 prediction. They are favored to win. They also have a vastly improved defense.

They opened favored at 1.5   and the line moved to three to equalize the betting.  It's really a coin toss.

Oh, my mistake. Either way, 38-10 is not a fair expectation. A coin toss is more likely. They've looked better than most people thought they'd be.

I knew it had been a while, didn't realize it was that long.  I know most everyone will look at that and Smith's undefeated run on the west coast and figure it's another W. I can't help think that its about to end.  

SD finally takes one from the Falcons and both streaks end.

I don't like that thought of it, but if we do lose, better to lose to  SD than SF or SEA.

The Rams will defeat the Bears. Mark my words.

I would love to see it. I want to see Amendola have a great game again.
