    Where has Gates been? Rivers looks like hes forgetting about his best friend and most valuable reciever.

    I'll be pissed if Gates gets pushed from the probowl by that arrogant bastard Winslow.

    He'll have a big game real soon. Hell our offense hardly had the ball for a good portion of this game. Nice job booing Winslow by those that were there. :tup:

    Gates did just ok this game but he will do better as the season wears on.

    The Solja did not get a TD today so we were able to stop the Solja.

    No 100 yds games, no multi TD games either, half the season is gone and he looks decent at best.

    Id like to think its cuz Rivers is looking towards WR's more, but I think he may be getting dominated on the double team.

    Ah, OK. Yeah you did.

    One of these would have conveyed the proper tone, too --> :icon_wink:

    It seems like every time I look up somebody's starting another thread about what's wrong with this player or that one. We're 6-2. Enjoy it. We are the top scoring offense in the league.

    That means our offense has the ability to have one or two different people each come up big in different games.

    Much more difficult to defend against.

    Unlike the Panthers and Steve Smith, who everyone knows that if you take Steve Smith out of the game, the Panthers likely lose.

    With the Chargers its "pick your poison" litteraly, They can choose to stop Rivers or they can choose to stop LT, but they cant stop both.
    The last 2 weeks the philosophy weve seen is stop Rivers, Rivers has still done decent, and LT is feasting(400+total yds and 6TD's!!!)
    Wait till the Bengals stack against LT, Gates will light the place on fire.
    130 yds and 2TD's for Gates next week.
