VIDEO: Ryan Mathews With a Killer Block

I don’t know what you call this move in wrestling (maybe one of you WWE followers know), but this was a KILLER block on the Oakland Raiders defender! One of the few Bolts highlights in the game last night.

    Anybody know what this wrestling move is called? Or should we just make up a new name for it?

    With his sophmore effort he has grown and is looking like the guy we wanted. Yet why was he set in the secound half against Oakland. I love Tolbert don’t get me wrong. We should be using them both alot more until teams completelty respect the run. But Rivers should work on his play action pass fake. Some QB”s look like a magician ( In fact if the Chargers were smart they’d have a magician come in and work on Rivers concieling the ball and his backs making the handoff look real. It’s a lost art and it can buy you alot of time with slight of hand. They have Lawyers take acting classes, the best are the ones that can sell the BS the best. Rivers could go along way in learning to be alot more deceptive since his legs aren’t as quick these days. I’m serious the idea is to full the D, and if two people can cause the defense to bite going one way the other side is wide open. Turner has used the run but mainly between the tackles. He’s got to run more often and mix it up all over the place. Not the same downs, teams read percentages you run out of a formation so mislead them by never running more than twice in a QTR.. Mathews can give the team a good 1400 yrds and Tolbert 5-600 yrds. The offensive line will get in tandem and tighten up. Then Rivers will have teams at his mercy.

    Jackson, Floyd, Gates, Brown, and Hester + RB’s. But first wear down these Defenses on the ground. If our offensive line can become one as a unit and that includes the 2nd string, they can beat on the Dline for a half and then pass blocking will be alot easier. Rivers and the backs will shine. Don’t be so damn impatient, give your D a rest and let these two horses have some fun. The key is in the mixing it up. You attack up the middle when they’re wore out, first run their legs down with swings and cut backs. Let Mckinley and Todman jpin in if the other two are hurting. But if you want Rivers to have more time he needs to use the 3 step drop and line his running backs closer to the line, and for gods sake quit giving the D time to set up. You start being successful with the run, hurry the offense and keep those big guys on their heels. Recievers your big so use it to block their CB’s until their beat. Secound half means your open alot easier. And like I said if Rivers works on the basics, slight of hand can make LB’s and cameramen look like fools. So get someone that knows the trick the best and have a few lessons. can’t hurt.

    Bring on Cowher for Gods Sake!!!!

      I agree completely! It seems whenever we are behind in the slightest, we give up on the run entirely and let the opponents defense drop into coverage without regretting it.

    It was such a sick block
