Donald Butler Named AFC Defensive Player of the Week


San Diego Chargers LB Donald Butler was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Kansas City Chiefs. Good to see he is starting to get a recognition around the league.

Butler finished with 6 tackles, half a sack and an interception that he took in for a touchdown. He has been a force on the defense and is quickly becoming a player that teams need to gameplan for.

Having playmakers on the defensive side of the ball is fun! Congrats to the Butler.

Cameron Wake and Miami fans are going to be a little butt hurt about this selection though. Wake finished the game with 4.5 sacks and 5 tackles in a losing effort against the Cardinals. Those are some big time numbers.

    John pagano has turned this whole defense into something to remeber here in SD!! Can’t wait till we get V. Brown back, watch out AFC! GO CHARGERS!

      vincent brown will be a huge boost to the offense… hoping he can come back without skipping a beat

    i remember last year when our D took the field i always thought to myself, here we go again, there gonna march right on down and score. finally i can stop holding my breath. i believe this D will do great things and with all the young blood this is only the start. i just hope AJ keeps our DC locked up and doesn’t let him leave.

      the defense could be the key for this team… i think it is even better than the number 1 ranked team we had a couple of seasons ago… still working to get to that Wade Phillips defense though

        Agreed, this defense will be a force to be reckoned with, I agree with Ernie we still have alittle bit to go to be at wade Phillips D,, BUT WE WILL BE MUCH GREATER THAN WADE PHILLIPS D, I CAN FEEL IT! OUR DEFENSE WILL BE #1 FOR A LONG TIME! CHARGER NATION!! 619!!!

      dang… good idea.. going onto eBay now

      • http://twitter.com/PowderBlue619 Saul Lopez

        yah g, i picked them up for like $2.00 each
        Now is the time to buy.

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

          do you normally just get rookie cards? i usually try for rookie autos and things like that

          • http://twitter.com/PowderBlue619 Saul Lopez

            i usually collect autos but since he was a 3rd round pick they don’t have them for him & if they do they are very very rare.

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            nice.. you want to buy my larry english autos? hahahaha

          • http://twitter.com/PowderBlue619 Saul Lopez

            I’ll pass g. LOL.
            but Supa Melvin is looking like a good investment.

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

    That’s our boy! This thread, and the comments are making get even MORE excited!!! It’s been a while since we have been able to feel proud of our D. I am excited to see what Carr brings to the secondary… peeps have been talking about getting another CB for a while. I hope he can play at a high level. Congrats to Butler for being a playmaker! = )

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      im hoping Carr can step in and make some plays also… should be interesting to see what he can add. i really want shareece wright to get on the field too.. he was having a strong camp and preseason before he busted up his ankle.

      • VEazy

        I just wish we could lobotomize the LA out of him. On a serious note, I like him as a player.

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

          Hahahaha… Know what you mean, but he can make up for it with his play on the field
