San Diego Def. Week 4?

Postby mt6er » Wed Sep 25, 2002 10:59 pm

I have San Diego's D and I'm debating whether I should play them against the Patriots or pick up Oakland (vs. Titans) or Jacksonville (vs. Jets). What do you think?

You don't need a D yet.San Diego is leading the NFL in total defense at 206 yards a game.Oakland is a close 3rd at 229.5 yards a game.Oakland has only got 2 games under their belt also,SD has 3.Charles Woodson is also out this week.Pick up Oakland if you need insurance,but play SD this week. 8-o

I would say yes 'cause of Detroit's inexperience at QB.They will undoubtedly give up the rock a couple times.

I agree...but sometimes the temptation of what may come is greater than what you get...Either you stick with the points you know you'll get, or go with the "sweet deal"...It all boils down to whether you have the guts to risk it or if you'd rather stay home with ol' reliable...

I Respected You Yesterday

Postby DraftDodger » Thu Sep 26, 2002 1:46 pm

Respect doesn't seem to last long. I thought people had finally woke up to the fact that the Patriots are for real. Brady & Co. will eat San Diego's defense for breakfast by halftime.

The REAL question here should be ... is San Diego's defense for real? So far they have defended against the 28th and 32nd ranked offenses, two of the worst in the league, and Arizona the 21st ranked offense in the league. Arizona has somehow managed to score one less TD than Detroit, for heaven's sake. Cinci and Houston have combined in 3 weeks for a whopping 3 offensive touchdowns, or half a touchdown each every week. Houston, the league's worst offense, has nonetheless managed to look respectable by playing good defense and conservative, clock eating offense.

San Diego hasn't faced a real offense. This week it does. Wake up and smell the roses. Brees is going to be facing a defensive mastermind who has all ready baffled several veteran QB's; he will be hurried, flushed, knocked down, and probably knocked out before the day is over. This means lots of punting and lots of time on the field for San Diego's defense. That won't be a good thing; trust me. Tomlinson may buy the Chargers some clock time and even add a score or two, but the defense is going to get a thrashing that it won't soon forget. Obviously I can't say that there won't be forced fumbles, sacks, or interceptions to help the Chargers D, but I can say that Brady will throw for 300+ yards and several TD's, which alone will take a bite out of SD's fantasy potential.

Trade some bench sitter for a better D to use this week. You will be lucky if the Chargers Defense doesn't lose you points.
