Chargers Working In That Wildcat Offense

The Chargers installed the wildcat offense in OTA’s today. It had to happen!

When you add a player like Ronnie Brown, who has had great success in the Wildcat, then you better give it a chance. You have to make some adjustments based on the players on your roster. Ronnie Brown took some snaps today in the wildcat offense and so did Eddie Royal, Ryan Mathews and Michael Spurlock.

There is a lot of athleticism on the offensive side of the ball and the wildcat could be thrown in to give teams a different look. It seemed to have some success in the red zone and in short yardage plays.

We can run that play here and there, but I would rather see Philip slinging the rock down to his receivers. This offense lives and dies on the arm of Philip Rivers!

Are you a fan of running the wildcat in San Diego?

       Best comment on here! On That fake punt he totally deked that last tackler! #BoltUp!!

    As long as its sprinkled into the offense I think it will be good for us

  • PeteSpinning1

    I would like to see it used, here and there. But, I agree with what you said about Rivers too. Balance is key. Anything that changes Norv’s predictability HAS to be a blessing, unless it just plain doesn’t work. Brown may not even make the roster anyway. Go Brinkley!

    IMO ‘The Wildcat’ is all played out by this point. I doubt it will work unless used several times as a decoy. However, I’m sure we all saw this coming when we brought Ronnie Brown in. I was wondering when an article like this would come out. It could work with Royal and maybe Vincent Brown & Ronnie Brown on the field, but Norval’s overwhelming stupidity scares me that he’ll call the obvious play and the defense whomever it might be will will eat it up. Norv does some disguising of plays that I really like (on occasion) but I just think in my gut he’d mess this up.

  • RussellGrant

    We have a good offense but being able to pull this out of the hat from time to time could be helpful, especially if we get good at it.  I just don’t want to rely on it too much.  Miami had some success but people figured it out eventually.

  • KeenanRickless

    We could bring back the half back pitch half back pass play that LT used to use to throw TD’s

    • KeenanRickless

      Im predicting we use that at least once this season.

  • pels04

    No more LT means no more wildfrog?

  • BReisinger86

    I say its a good idea, don’t need to use it much. Just enough so that its one more thing teams need to plan against when facing us. But i can totally see a few pitches to Brown with a toss back to Rivers for a 40+ yrd bomb into the endzone! Flea Flicker FTW!!

    • BoJackRusso

       @BReisinger86 That would be fun to see. I always did like it when Tomlinson threw it.  That wasn’t a flea flicker though, more like an option. It worked though. Not sure why Norv never used it.

      • BReisinger86

         @BoJackRusso Yeah, Brown can through the ball pretty well too.. Might see a little of that as well

  • RMainwaring

    What? Norv is gonna mix it up a little? Be more creative? Wow! I’m looking forward to great things this season. I can’t wait! 

  • MikeTuck

      This is exactly why I wanted the Chargers to draft Kellen Moore out of Boise to back up Rivers. His throwing percentage had been good without to many mistakes and his legs are great. It would have made a nice 1-2 punch. Whitehurst I liked too! But if Moore doesn’t make the team that drafted him then we need a 3rd QB that has his talent. Boise showed they can play with the big boys and Moore was a on going weapon.
