Go chargers, if they can handle the colts and the titans it would at least keep us alive to have a second home playoff game...so go chargers!

While it would be nice for us to have a second playoff game at home, it's possible without the Chargers winning as well. And a large part of me wants San Diego to be punished for replacing Marty Schottenheimer after winning 14 games...and doing so with Norv Turner, a notoriously bad head coach.

And again thats why i say go chargers, best chance for us to win another game down the road (fingers crossed)

I think the colts would have a better shot at taking out the titans, thus giving us AFC Championship game at home (assuming we win out of course). If the bolts win, I dont see them beating Tenn, giving Tenn the AFC Championship game. GO COLTS!!!!

Here's two reasons the Colts might be a better matchup:

1. The Colts can't run the football, whereas Ladainian is starting to regain his stride for the Chargers. He sure didn't have it during our first matchup, and the Chargers are better now than when we beat them.

2. We could run the ball on Indianapolis's defense, and part of me salivates at what the Wildcat might do to them. Plus the Chargers have more familiarity with us since they played us this year.

Why not? If your going to the superbowl, your gonna have to beat three good teams. Just like the ravens vs phins, just because we beat the chargers once doesn't mean we have a better chance at winning again.

This is the playoffs. It's the definition of any given Sunday.

I get wat your saying and i sorta agree, only prob is that i think it is a easier game against the titans if the chargers were to lose to them. Colts are the hottest team in the NFL right now and rightfully so. Manning has crept his *** back into the saddle and is cruzin to the superbowl, dont let them pick up anymore steam.

A team doesn't have to be 'better' necessarily to pose a worse matchup for the Dolphins.

so u think the colts pose a better matchup, i dont think so but ok...U go ahead and pull for us to have a matchup with Peyton, peyton vs. any D is a mismatch on just about any football field and last i checked we dont have amazing DBs.

1. You should leave this site once in a while to find out whats going on in the world. LT has tendon in his groin torn from the bone. He hasn't been ruled out, but its safe to stay he wont be striding anywhere.

2. You didn't mention as a disclaimer that you have a man-crush on Manning.

Colts are as healthy as they have been all season and they've won 10 in a row. Very scary, probably more scary than Baltimore. If we're playin them for the AFC Championship I would be happy.

The Chargers offense isn't exactly anemic, you know. And they're starting to run the ball effectively, which gives them multiple dimensions.

Peyton is definitely having a great year after a slow start, but if they wind up throwing every down, it isn't as hard to gameplan.

i know they arnt but they also have norv turner and a so so D this year. The colts on the other hand have prob the best QB ever to take the field and a great few players to hook up with. By the way there D is pretty good. I will take my chances against the bolts then go against Manning and that D.

And for what it's worth everyone, I didn't say that I definitely thought the Colts ARE a better matchup...but just wanted to give some reasons that they might be.

Truthfully, anybody with a potent offense will be a challenge for us in the playoffs due to our defense (which is good, but can be picked apart)

I can respect that...I just don't necessarily agree that the Chargers will be much easier to beat than the Colts.

The Colts defense is good, but their run defense is suspect. They gave up over 120 yards per game and 18 TDs on the ground.

it may not be a fact but it sure be very obvious to the even AVERAGE football fan that the colts are leaps and bounds better than the chargers, there is a reason y the chargers are 8-8 , they arnt that good.

I can understand everyone rooting for what they think is a "better" matchup, but to tell you the truth it doesn't matter who we play at this point. This is the playoffs and we have got to be better than whoever is standing in front of us. If we can't beat the Chargers, we don't deserve the next level. The same goes for beating the Colts.
We have to nut up EVERY week now. Bring on "whoever" and we will just have to deal with it. We will truly see what we are made of. I ain't scared of any of 'em.

As i would tend to agree i have to tell ya i want a deep playoff run and would love the strengthen that percentage by anymeans possible. If that means playing the worse of the bunch then so be it.

I don't care about the match-up...I want to play whomever is the best team that wins. With our coaching and Chad, I think we can play with anyone. Whether or not we can win it all is another story.

Norv is horrible.
I don't like LT.
Chambers is soft.
I don't like Rivers either.

We would thrash the Colts D if we played them, they don't scare me at all.

(Used to love Marino always killig the Colts.)

Special teams is the difference in this game. It's not often a punter takes over the game, but that's what Scifres has done, pinning the Colts inside the 5 yard line twice. Then again, allowing 5.25 ypc hasn't helped the Colts cause. For that matter, neither has the 2 false starts and 2 dropped passes (especially the Reggie Wayne drop, that would've put the Colts in field position to get at least a FG).

Breed
01-03-2009, 10:57 PM
You would think the Colts could at least get a yard there. Kind of hard to make play action calls work when your running game is absolute ****....

Wow, the Colts actually converted on a 3rd down running the ball....

Breed
01-03-2009, 11:58 PM
If the Chargers come back to win this game, their punter will be the reason why. 5 times now the Colts have been pinned inside the 10 yard line, 4 of those times they were pinned inside the 5 (1 of those at the 1).

Ball game....

If you can't stop the run, and you can't run the ball, you're going to lose. It doesn't help when the best field position you have all day is at the 30 yard line, and get pinned inside the 10 yard line 5 times, 4 of those inside the 5 (1 of those being at the 1). I feel sorry for Manning, his supporting cast (overall) is ****....
