When the San Diego Chargers Are on Defense

Stop Arian Foster! He will be priority number 1. Even though he is coming back from injury and might have some rust on him, we still need to make sure that he doesn’t go off on us.

Then we have to deal with Andre Johnson. Derek Cox will have his hands full and Shareece Wright will get the rookie. Or Shareece Wright will cover Andre Johnson and injure him. Whatever works.

The Texans have some good weapons on offense, but I think the Chargers have some favorable matchups that they can take advantage of. Corey Liuget will be going up against a 3rd string guard in the game and Dwight Freeney will be able to take advantage of a left tackle trying to help on Liuget.

Jarret Johnson will need to hold the edge and the middle linebackers need to make their tackles. Bront Bird and Donald Butler will be key players in the run defense. Cam Thomas will have to occupy a couple of blockers and let those linebackers do work.

Put pressure on Matt Schaub and when we get that opportunity to force a turnover, make the play. Nothing bugs me more than dropping a gimme turnover.

Shorten the field and get that ball to Philip.

      i think our guys match up well with them. should be a fun battle to watch

  • Gunnar Martin

    I actually think Wade Smith will be playing tonight, but I will be glad to be wrong.

    Our franchise players need to make plays for us throughout the entire game for us to win. Butler, Weddle, Luiget on D. Rivers, Gates, Mathews on O. Mental mistakes will not be acceptable.

    • Ernie Padaon

      that will be one to watch

  • Joel Ayala

    I am so STOKED!!!! Go Chargers!!!
