Are they a different team without Marty Schottenheimer as head coach?

EDWARDS: “Not really, he coaches the way he coaches and Norv Turner coaches the way he coaches. There are a lot of the same players. Their offense is about the same and they run a little different style of defense, but they are good coaches. Players have to get used to it too. It’s just like our players had to figure me out last year.”
I find it impossible to believe that LaDainian Tomlinson, NFL's Most Valuable Player, rushing leader, total yardage leader, scoring leader and offensive player of the year, forgot how to run in 8 short months.

Point is, Tomlinson's running behind the same offense as last season. Whereas in Jan 2007 post season, the Chargers beat and confused the Patriots at home in Gillette Stadium 41-17. Belichick had 8 defenders in the box and Tomlinson rushed for 123 yards, 5.3/per carry and scored 2 TDs in the redzone. When the Patriots defense blitzed, Tomlinson caught the ball for 64 yds receiving. Last season the Patriots defense was rated 5th against the run. Someone needs to tell Herm, Billicheck is 7-2 against MVP players.

Two GREAT running backs in the NFL -- LaDainian Tomlinson and Larry Johnson, who rushed for 1,750 yds a year ago, and both NFL runners forgot how to run. ... And all Herm has to say to the media, "When you break a 20 or 30-yard run your average obviously looks a lot better. There are a lot of things that make it look like that, but I do know that when you have two good runners, our runner and their runner, it doesn’t last forever.”

And under the bus everybody goes. ... lord have mercy... lol

good night... and no, i'm am not a patriots fan! lol

If there is a Pats fan around, did Belicheck get rid of the 8th safety in the box? Oh wait... I forgot. the Patriots stopped Tomlinson last week.. had to jump back in and edit ...
