How will our LB's match up against the Chargers?

This week will be critical for judging our LB corp. We love to taut them as one of if not the best group in the league but this week they have a heck of a task on their hands.

Antonio Gates has 56 catches for 784 yards and 7 TDs so far.

LT has 902 yds rushing and 286 catching to go with 16 TDs on the season.

Our LBs will be responsible for holding these 2 in check. They have done well against TE's so far this season but our run D has had some problems.

How do you see our crew doing against these fellas?

This game is a difficult one for us because they have a great runner, efficient passer and top interior threat. One advantage we seem to have is against top tight ends with Taylor. Taylor seems capable of taking out that threat inside in most instances which forces teams to adjust to us when they rely on that threat. Not sure that'll be the case here, but, it is something to look for.

The defense has to play the run as well as it has the last couple of weeks by being highly responsible for their roles on every down. I would take chances with more man coverage this week than in the past hoping to really take LT and Gates out and see if they could beat us on the outside.

No linebacker matches up "well" with Gates or Tomlinson.
