Love the notes from training camp on Eric Weddle. Sounds like he is picking up right where he left off. He is performing at Pro Bowl form as usual. Weddle keeps getting better and better.
Here are the notes from yesterday:
Reading Philip Rivers from center field, Eric Weddle dominated as a pass defender. He broke up two passes, one with a diving swat, and snagged an overthrow for an interception. Afterward, Rivers said there’s no better safety in the NFL. He also praised Weddle for orchestrating the secondary, which has new starters at strong safety and both cornerback spots.
Dominated! I love it. Sounds great for Eric Weddle, but doesn’t sound so great for Philip Rivers.
Love Weddle and love that he is back there patrolling the secondary. Quarterbacks try to avoid throwing the ball in his direction and it just gives the guys up front that much more time to chase after the quarterback.
If the guys up front can get a little more pressure on the quarterbacks, then Eric Weddle can make some big times thing happen this year. We could see some career numbers for him. Interceptions for days.
Why is this season so far away? I love our Pro Bowler… oh wait!
