I didn't forget for one moment that crybaby MVP Brady is sitting out the year. So, what you're saying is that he's the only thing that the Patsies ever had going for them other than their cheating coach?

During the play-offs, Phillip Rivers played with a shredded ligament in his right knee. LT was benched due to injuries. The Chargers of regular season football were not the Chargers that were in the playoffs. Additionally, if you believe LT sat out the game because of an "alleged" injury, then you understand absolutely nothing about the character of Ladanian Tomlinson. But, if it makes this loss easier for you to swallow, go ahead and believe what you will.

Everybody loves to kick the Chargers around and try to dismiss the talent on this team. Our only problem is our coaching staff--our players have the goods to go all the way.

Why some people think Brady is a "crybaby" is beyond me. It is more than likely because they are so upset at all the whippings that were laid upon them by Brady and the Pats. Get your shots in this year haters, because next season you all will be upset once again. Oh, and the Chargers are a forgotten team...........you have to do something first!

I thought the defense looked bad. brady doesn't play defense, and he is also getting old. what was his injury? was it a 1 year rehab?

As Steven Tyler so eloquently stated, "Dream On."

San Diego's eight straight last year after a slow start showed what this team can do when it's healthy. Had the Chargers been healthy last year during the play-offs, most experts agree that the outcome could have been much, much different.

However, no one ever wants to give them credit for the phenomenal, quality players on the team. I believe that they can make it to the playoffs again this year and providing our players stay healthy--a different turnout than last year is indeed possible.

What was Rivers's excuse 2 years ago when they lost at home to the Pats in the play-offs. Hmm, bruised ego?

Funny how I read that LT was cleared by the Chargers to return to the game but he said he couldn't. I think you need to check who is the cry baby.

If any team lost a QB of Tom Brady's caliber, they would struggle that season. We've seen what the Colts have done with Manning recovering from injury. If he was out, the Colts would be terrible. Not sure how Tom Brady is a cry baby. I've seen LT on TV crying about the "lights-out" dance and crying about him not being injured. I don't see Brady saying anything.

One thing I never understood, it was ok for Merriman to do the "lights out" dance after a sack and that was not disrespectful but when another player does it after a Chargers choke at home then it is? I'm confused.

The Chargers are a talented football team - they don't live up to their potential for whatever reason.

Who are these experts??

When the Chargers win then they will be taken seriously.

I don't know that I agree that Brady, at 31, is "getting old." NFL QBs typically hit their prime around 31. I'd say he has about 3 more years playing at this level. IF (and that's a big if) he fully recovers from his knee injury. He tore his ACL and MCL. He had surgery last week and is starting rehab. I think the rehab is anywhere from 10months to a year. Which means he may start out rusty next year.

I totally agree with you (did I just say that?!) The problem with this team is that their defense got old quick and their secondary is just terrible. The Brady-led offense of '07 could hide that; the Matt Cassell-if we get down by 2 TDs we're finished-offense cannot!

Living in the Denver area, I am not looking forward to next Monday night's game against the Broncos. I am going to hear it on Tuesday!

I'll take it easy on ya! My years with Donkeyball go back to day 1 of the history of both franchises. Denver was the doormat of the league for the first 8 years of the AFL. About that time the Pats descended into that spot when Babe Parilli was traded to the Jets for Mike Taliaferro. And even with Jim Plunkett being picked in the '71 draft, it took the Pats a long time to get respectability back again.

If this coming Mon. nighter was in Denver, even with Brady, I would be nervous. Luckily it is at home.............but I'm still quite nervous. Hopefully O'Neal will perform a "bit" better, or we should get Ty Law back. Hell, I'll take him!!!

I just look at someone like culpepper or carson palmer. those knee injuries really did them in and they were younger than brady. not saying it will happen, but there is a chance. that's a bad injury. never know though, look at gherison hearst. he had knee surgery twice and came back strong. everyone's body heals differently.
