DUBNER: Tell me some of the pundits who whether by luck or brilliance and hard work turn out to be really, really good. DAVENPORT: Sure. There are two guys from ESPN who are sort of far ahead of the field. One is Pat Yasinskas, and the other is John Clayton, who is pretty well known; he makes a lot of appearances on SportsCenter and he's kind of a, nebbish-y professorial type. And they perform much better than everyone else because they're excellent wild-card pickers. They're the only people who have correctly predicted both wild card teams in a conference in a season. But they're especially good because they actually play it much safer than everyone else. DUBNER: Now you say that they are very good. Persuade me that they're good and not lucky. DAVENPORT: I can't do that. ...

Spikes on Petersons Predictions

"It was a direct slap in the face," said Spikes, who had a terrific debut in San Diego with a game-high 11 tackles. "You don't come in our house saying that hey I'm going to get over 200 yards and guarantee a W. That is a disrespect to us. We put in a lot of time in this game; respect every guy in this locker room as a player. I find it hard to believe and you are going to say all that and your success is predicated off the guys up front and with us knowing that. I know our guys up front -- those dogs hunt. … It was personal, absolutely personal." Got to love having a guy like Spikes on D.

A.J. Smith: Slow starts are "not a Norv Turner thing."

A.J. Smith: Slow starts are "not a Norv Turner thing." We all know that the Chargers' slow starts are a bit unusual -- normally, the team's going to start with two wins and three losses every year, since that's close to what Norv Turner's Chargers' teams have started anyway. To say this isn't a Norv Turner thing (and that this is a "Charger thing" as A.J. Smith puts it) is a bit off. Norv Turner has never had fast starts and his offense is complex enough for players to get confused at first, even if they're incumbents. Regardless, we're hoping it's not a Norv thing; and if it is, we're hoping this "thing" goes away.
