I think this is really SD's game to lose... If your defense decides to screw up like they did in week 1, we can win this thing. We sort of contained the seahawks (they missed a FG, and we won), and i think that's the closest matchup we've had to what SD brings...
You've got a pass rush, but the better option is really to drop more into coverage... bringing 6 doesn't work well against max protection and TE dump offs, which we use a LOT. Also, there's a lot of rotation among the DL to prevent wearing down somewhat, though not having C Griffin (the only good D lineman on the team) hurts.
Over the last three games we've given up 45, 61, and 50 yards rushing... averages of 2, 2.3 and 1.7 yards respectively... the 45 yard game was against the iggles though, so that doesn't count, but i think it gives us a shot. I mean, alexander only got 1 TD on us, I think LT will do about the same.
Anyways, bad luck, I hope your team rots, etc etc.
Hey "That Guy". Welcome to the site. You guys have a tough defense. Much tougher than the Buffalo Bills. We will need to stay unpredictable on offense and not rely simply on our running game. We will need to beat you guys through the air IMO.
Defensively, we will need to stop Portis first and secondly, put constant pressure on Brunell. If we drop back into coverage and not put pressure, Moss will eat up our secondary.
