    LaDainian Tomlinson

    Well most of us agree the weak spot on our defense is the outside run. The last three teams we've played have also realized this and have taken advantage of it more and more. So what do we do about Tomlinson? He is the only consistent weapon on the Chargers offense...but in my opinion he is tougher than any of the RBs we've faced so far. He explodes from the backfield and is very hard to bring down, and he never gets hurt. He is also versatile and catches a lot of passes. That's how they used him against the speedy Miami LBs and I'm worried about what will happen against our slower guys no matter how well they read him.

    I have faith that O'Leary will come up with something, the biggest problem obviously that we need to tackle the damn ball carrier. But I think we should consider putting 8 guys in the box on some plays and try to completely slow down their running game as much as possible. I know that leaves us vulnerable against the pass but the plus side is we won't give up 200 yards to Tomlinson. It's like playing Barry Sanders again...give him an inch and he'll go for a mile.

    That said I see our offense torching the Chargers D ranked 25 against the rush. If A train did this well then Bennett Williams and Smith should be up for a great day. SD also gives up over 200 passing yds per game...hopefully Moss will swallow them alive.
