    Coach Ski got his team up for this one as they get the victory over the computer controlled Ravens squad 16-41. Ray Lewis and the Raven's did force 4 fumbles recovering two from Ryan Matthews. Matthews has struggled holding on to the rock as the season has progressed...

    The big news in this game is the Chargers loss of their number 1 WR Malcom Floyd. He was the player of the game and had 6 catches 72 yards and 2 TD's when he went out of the game (first half) with a tricep injury. He will be out 7 weeks which means that he won't be eligible to return until the playoffs... This is a huge loss for the Chargers. Floyd has been so valuable to this team and his loss will be missed especially in an already weak WR corps. The Chargers went out and picked up FA Denario Alexander to replace the red-zone threat that Floyd represented. Alexander is 6' 5'' like Floyd and has similar but inferior skills than Floyd. We a hoping he can help us out in the red-zone. He will be battling for playing time and working hard to find his way into the starting lineup. With all the drops this year by the WR's he should be able to compete for some playing time in this offense.

    Rivers had 3 td's but also had 3 int's. He has 7 more picks than TD's this season... he needs to limit his turnovers if we are going to make a run for the playoffs. I have had a tough time passing this season and have yet to throw for a 300 yard game. This is in large part due to a heavy rushing attack. Matthews has been solid except for his recent string of fumbles...The Ravens had a tough defense forcing 6 TO's on the day. We were tied at 6 after the first quarter and then the Chargers offense began to warm up and got things going. One crazy play was a forced fumble on Matthews that was recovered by SD FB Leron McClain who took it 80 yards to pay dirt!

    Update: Floyd has traveled to Malaysia to get a controversial procedure done to increase his healing time and it worked! He will not miss 7 games! He will start next week against the Bengals!

    Bengals star CB Leon Hall, in a recent interview with NFL Network, stated;

    "Pretty boy Floyd shouldn't be in such a rush to get shutdown, I got his number next week."

    We'll just have to wait and see if this cocky statement can be backed up or if Hall is full of hot air.
