Pucks hitting me or not, I do not seem off on this one. You fans can get all fired up about payback, but players have no bone in that fight.
Rivers & Gates for sure. The rest of the players, not exactly revenge. Anger, resentment, probably. There's respect sure but the assumption by nearly everyone in the media that the Pats are simply the better team in this contest would get me smoking hot to kick their butts if I'm a Chargers player.

At the 'second level' is exactly where these two QB's beat you. They are smart, they know what the defence is taking away, and adjust accordingly....and do so successfully on a consistent basis. The times they failed, they were not able to do their thing because the defence was taking them out of their game. We have read it on here, to beat Brady you have to harass him, sack him, hit him...that is exactly how the Ravens won the first game against Rivers. Yea, you got to cover the options, but my game plan would be about getting to Brady.

This is the tired out story that the media peddles each week.....the players hear it so much they don't care anymore, they know it is bs.....

Oh PLEASE double up Allen so Williams, Williams, Henry, Gates, Gordon, Ekeler, and Benji can run free like chickens on a range.

Please ?

Brilliant. A thousand guys in the NFL all motivated by one thing. What's your motivation to post these witty little quips?

Try not to be so shortsighted, it might help the perception you are engaging your brain prior to responding.

I fear only one thing. The Chargers hosting a playoff game. They are road warriors.

I disagree. Sure they love the big bucks they are paid but they also love playing the game.

We played it in school without a cent of pay but we played because we enjoyed the competition, the adrenaline, and excitement. I'm 83 years old but I would no doubt play to this day if my body wasn't so old. I miss playing - don't you?

A B S O L U T E L Y TRUTH!

However, in the way they have been exorcizing demons of Charger's teams past, I have confidence they can blow this one up as well.
