Week 4

The Dolphins continue their quest for their first win of 2011 in San Diego on Sunday when they visit the Chargers in their final game before the bye week. Miami has lost three straight to start the season, while the Bolts are 2-1 after they escaped with a 20-17 win over the Chiefs last Sunday.

Injuries look to play a major role in this one for both teams, so be sure to check out the official injury report, as released by the teams on Friday.

As we go behind enemy lines, everyone knows that the Chargers have been notorious slow starters (and finishers) under head coach Norv Turner, who visited with Hank Goldberg in this week’s “Hammertime Podcast.” Turner had some interesting things to say about his team while visiting with Hank.

This week we also had a chance to catch up with former Dolphin and current Charger Randy McMichael, who had plenty to say about the game as well as about his QB, Phillip Rivers. Additionally, Chargers radio analyst Hank Bauer spoke with us about the state of affairs in San Diego.

On the Dolphins side, John Congemi does a nice job breaking down what he thinks the Fins need to do to leave SoCal with a win, so be sure to check out Congemi’s Keys.

The trip out west has gotten a lot of attention this week, with the team leaving a day early and all, but they really seem to have the long trip thing figured out, as the Fins are 3-1 out there under Tony Sparano. In this week’s “LIST,” we asked some of our former Dolphins about their own favorite wins on the left side of the country.

Finally, here’s a video preview of the game, as Sam Madison gives us his perspective on this critical Week 4 match-up:
