Welcome sports fans to this weeks Bolts preview.

In short, who cares.

The long story is the Chargers suck and no one has any idea if the team shows up to play any given Sunday. Oakland is even worse, so do yourself a favor and stay far, far away from this horrible game.

Ps. If anyone cares, I am picking the Chargers to win, since I have to pick a winner in every game in my football pool. If this team has an ounce of dignity left, they will try to suck a little less against the Raiders and win by a field goal.

OAK -2.5 (.5u) - will the Bolts bounce back after being bounced from the dance for a meaningless game in Oakland? I think not, especially when their coach is two steps out the door.  While it would be nice to knock off their rival from the dance too, i'm bettin the Bolts have tanked it for the season.  SCORE: Chargers 17 - Raiders 21.

UPON FURTHER REVIEW< Last year in a similar situation, the Bolts choked against the Bengals in a must-win in Week 16 and thus eliminated from the playoffs. That didn't stop them from beating up on the Broncos in week 17...hmmm, maybe i'll switch to the Bolts.

SD scores more, gives up less and is a 3 point dog. I would bet the public ends up pounding SD because Oak is turnover prone and the line just doesnt make any sense-should be flipped imho...so I will take Oakland and give SD the 3.

S.D. travelling from laying an egg in Detroit to The Black Hole? Vincent Jackson being out is huge. Gimme the Raiders for the win, and at the same time, the Tebows for the loss.......

I like Raiders.  Detroit found it plenty hard in Oakland a couple weeks ago.
