The oddsmakers have us as underdogs as well.
I for one can understand why some are picking SD.
Having said that, I hope we crush them, but I don't expect to.
I agree with what you're saying 100%, but I think that some of these mediots need to be lasso'd before making off the cuff comments. At least provide some reasoning for your pick based on analyses, like what you did above.
Just saying, "I watched them all preseason" is not enough. My 12 year old nephew can provide a deeper analysis than that.
This is the reason why I stopped watching any of these pregame shows. I am only interested in the game. Most of the mediots on these shows aren't worth my time. I would rather go swing the golf club while they blow hot air.
