Default The Avengers! Or why the Chiefs will beat the Chargers

Week 8: Denver loses to the Ravens.
Week 9: Ravens lose. Denver loses to the Steelers.
Week 10: Steelers lose. Denver loses to the Redskins.
Week 11: Redskins lose. Denver loses to the Chargers.

Week 12: Profit.

So, there it is. Denver has been avenged after each loss.

Take the mortgage to the bank. Chiefs beat the Chargers this week.

If the Chargers beat themselves like the Steelers did then the Chiefs have a chance.

The Chiefs are playing much better than they did a few weeks ago when they met so this game has a bit of a danger to it but I don't see it happening. I don't know if the Steelers took the game lightly or what but the Chiefs upsetting the Steelers was a good thing IMO. I think there was potential here to be a "trap game" but there's no way they take this game lightly now.

You're a lot more confident in this bunch than I am.

Thankfully Rivers does not fall into the overconfidence trap like our defense tends to do. He will keep us in the game until everyone else pulls their heads out.

Well, here's the deal with the Chiefs. When Herm was in charge, his defense in particular always gave the Chargers problems, whether it was with the Chiefs or Jets. I was glad to see Herm leave. That made the two games with KC much less stressful for me.

The Chiefs will be playing with more confidence this time and maybe Chambers gives them good intel so the game could be slightly more competitive but I don't see it. Their team just doesn't match up well IMO. Chargers cruise to another victory.

There is another trend that goes against yours.

Week 7: Chargers beat Chiefs
Week 8: Chargers beat Raiders
Week 9: Chargers beat Giants
Week 10: Chargers beat Eagles
Week 11: Chargers beat Broncos

Week 12 ?

One of our trends will be ended this week.

Reportedly, the Chargers were celebrating the win over the Broncos like they just won the Super Bowl. An upset wouldn't be TOTALLY out of the picture...

Could happen. I doubt it.

It is just about consistency with the Chiefs. They need to do a better job of eliminating mental mistakes and tackling. The defensive line is doing a pretty good job. They have grown to be solid against the run. They don't get a lot of sacks (maybe good for 1 oe 2) but they do consistently get solid pressure. Disrupting things and even knocking balls down.

The emergence of Charles seems to have helped Haley find more of a rhythm with his playcalling. Which is a good thing.

The upset may be on after all. That's going to be a weak front seven if Castillo and Merriman are out:

Quote:
SAN DIEGO ---- Luis Castillo's calf injury prompted the Chargers on Friday to list the defensive end as doubtful to play this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Castillo has been the one consistent presence in the Chargers' defensive line rotation this season, and while the team is clearly better with him on the field, it seems to function just fine without him.

Castillo was sidelined for all but eight plays of last week's game at Denver, yet the Chargers still dominated the Broncos' line in a 32-3 victory.
Piecing together a defensive-line rotation is nothing new for the Chargers. They've battled through injury setbacks all season and have learned to play well without their ideal personnel.

"We do a great job of rotating guys and keeping everyone fresh," defensive end Jacques Cesaire said. "We go as hard as we can, knowing that someone will come in and relieve us. That won't change because of the situation. Another guy has to step up, and we believe he will. We all practice like we're going to play, and I'm confident we'll fill the void left by Luis and continue playing well."

Rookie Vaughn Martin will likely be active in Castillo's stead, and while he doesn't play left end as well as Castillo, the veterans believe they can easily compensate.

"We feel like we have six starters in this room," defensive lineman Travis Johnson said. "All of us have played big roles on this team and teams before. If you have six guys with that mentality, you can't beat that. Everybody knows how to play all three positions. We all trust each other and we believe that we can mix and match guys, move them around the line and still dominate up front."

Merriman's status uncertain

Outside linebacker Shawne Merriman rarely practices early in the week due to a nagging foot problem. But his plantar fasciitis has sidelined him all week, and it could keep Merriman from playing against Kansas City.
While he has been quick to dismiss his injury report status and declare himself eligible to play in weeks past, Merriman wouldn't do that after Friday's practice.

"It's one of those things that just takes time to go away," said Merriman, who's listed as questionable to play.

"There's nothing you can do about it. You just have to rest it. It's best to calm it down as much as possible, and that's what we're doing. I'm comfortable enough with our game plan that I can play without practicing too much, but I'm still not sure about Sunday."

If Merriman can't go, Larry English will start with both James Holt and Brandon Siler spelling him.

In other injury news, center Nick Hardwick (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game.

Wide receiver Vincent Jackson (ribs), punter Mike Scifres (groin), outside linebacker Shaun Phillips (ankle) and Johnson (groin) are all probable to play against the Chiefs.

The two ex-roidheads are both out with injuries? Wow, what a surprise. Don't worry though, the Chargers are a better team with those jokers on the bench.
