Which longstanding rivalry is going
to determine a division title?
They're the two best teams in the AFC West, and they're the two best teams in the AFC. Yeah, I know Indianapolis is undefeated, but these guys can stop the run; the Colts can't. Hey, the Broncos have allowed one touchdown in five games. I don't care if Jake Plummer or Christopher Plummer's quarterbacking that team. It won't make a difference if the D keeps playing like that. The Chargers are the best-balanced club in the AFC. Period. But before we move them to the playoffs, let's see them play Denver. For some reason the Broncos give them fits, beating them five of the last six and seven of the last nine. Kansas City's not a factor in the division, and neither are the Raiders. This is all about Denver and San Diego, and you can't make the call until they finish their series Dec. 10 in San Diego.
Which interior defensive lineman is the best run stopper?
Give me defensive tackle Jamal Williams of San Diego. Did you see him handle Pittsburgh's Jeff Hartings? He pushed him all the way to Escondido. The guy's a load, and he's one reason -- and a big, big reason at 6-3, 348 -- why the Chargers lead the league in total defense and are third against the run. He plugs the middle. He plays with leverage. He uses his hands well. He's seldom off his feet. He plays the nose in a 3-4, so he's an anchor. And he's agile, with one defensive assistant telling me that it's almost impossible to cut-block the guy. In short, the man's a load, and so good that teammate Steve Foley earlier this year told the San Diego Union-Tribune that Williams "is our cure for cancer." Wow. How do you argue with that? You don't.
