Here are some keys to the Sam Diego Chargers – Minnesota Vikings game:

1. Stay Healthy… 2. Stay Healthy…. 3. Stay Healthy…..

These games don’t count for jack poop, so we don’t need to pile up on work for the medical staff. We already lost WR Vincent Brown and RB Ryan Mathews, who is next?

The offensive line will be missing at least 2 starters, Jared Gaither and Nick Hardwich, for the game. Philip Rivers better have his track shoes on!

4. Find that rhythm

Can we have one pretty game from the Chargers? Can the offense get in a rhythm in the ground game and can Philip Rivers connect with Robert Meachem? Enough of the 3-and-outs and interception, we need this offense to get into gear.

Feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme. Get on up….

Get Philip out of this game as soon as possible. If he drives for a TD in his first 2 possessions, get him out of there. Antonio Gates doesn’t even need to see the field on Friday.

Keep our boys healthy!
