Steelers 11, Chargers 10
Rivers completed 15 of 26 passes for 164 yards; 0 TD & 2 INT.
He was sacked twice.

Here are the Chargers receiving stats from that game:
Yards-Rcpt-Player
45 ---- 3 ---- Tomlinson
29 ---- 2 ---- Floyd
25 ---- 2 ---- Jackson
21 ---- 3 ---- Chambers
17 ---- 1 ---- Manumaleuna
10 ---- 2 ---- Gates
9 ------ 1 ---- Sproles
8 ------ 1 ---- Naanee

The Steelers had 69 offensive plays and held the ball for 36:31
The Chargers had 48 offensive plays and held the ball for 23:29

I stated it earlier that people want to forget about Ike Tayler #24. Maybe because he's not in the pro bowl. But the man has shut down a lot of good WRs this year and fans of other teams seem to think that our secondary can't cover a WR. That's not true, our greatest weakness on defense has been covering the TE - that's why Gates is my main concern but I also know that we've got talented and speedy LBs that can cover him. But maybe Rivers and VJ will cry enough that the refs will find a reason to throw the yellow flag when it's nothing but good defense. With that being said, I hope the refs let them play the game on Sunday and don't interfere unless it's a blatant penalty.

I'm sure Rivers is about to see his fair share of blitzes this game. He'll probably also see some exotic packages that look like blitzes but are more coverage.

considering we are # 1 against the pass, I don't know how any opposing fan could think that we don't limit WR's.

Thank you sir. Proves my point exactly. There is nothing the Chargers have done recently that make me think this game will be any different as far as Jackson and Chambers are concerned. Gates is the only concern. I read on some other board today a Chargers fan stating they had the best WR corps in the entire league with Jackson, Chambers and Gates. I almost blew a gut reading that one especially with Fitzgerald, Boldin and Breaston playing for the Cards and TO, WItten and Williams playing in Dallas.

The only Receivers I see hurting us in this game are Sproles and Gates.
