Chargers vs Eagles: Chargers On Offense


The Philadelphia Eagles are going to be aggressive on defense. They send a ton of blitzes and will make sure that the offensive line has their assignments correct. The backs will have to pick up blitzers and this could mean that we see more of Ronnie Brown and Danny Woodhead in the backfield. Philip Rivers will get hit and will get sacked in this game, but he has to have confidence in that pocket. As soon as he starts getting happy feet we could be in trouble.

The quick hot reads need to be available and Danny Woodhead could be our assassin in this game. He could make plays out of the backfield and could see open space in the secondary. I would love to see him get that football in space.

Eddie Royal should get a lot of looks also. The Eagles seemed to have issues with the bunch look on offense also against the Redskins, so Ken Whisenhunt can hit that early and often.

The tight ends could see a lot of action. Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed did well against the Eagles defense in the second half of last week’s game and I am sure that the Chargers will look to exploit that. Ladarius Green and Antonio Gates could put up some big numbers in this game.

The offense will have to protect that football and put up points. There will be a ton of opportunities on offense and the Eagles will keep pushing to put more points on the board. The Chargers can turn it into a slugfest if they are able to be efficient on offense.

    Ernie..if only you could gameplan with wiz hahaha I wish they Ricky Henne could get our opinions to some of the coaching staff.. They can’t say they know everything

    • John Alton

      Because we the fans sure as don’t know everything,

      • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        of course we do… haha

    • Stefanie Smith

      10 stars for that comment, Thomas. Ernie would be great and get the Wiz out of his Norv phase quickly.

    • Gunnar Martin

      I’ve always thought that something like this could be a good idea. But it would probably come across as a little unprofessional by the team to seek anything from the fans like that…

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Looks like the Eagles #2 CB Fletcher is out for this game, Nickle guy is moving up to cover for him so a bench CB will be playing the Nickle. That could be really good news for Rivers, Their #1 can cover Floyd the backup Nickle guy will be on Royal but that leaves us wide open to get Brown involved bigtime and get Allen out there in 4 WR sets and get the ball moving. Rivers needs protection and could have a huge game.

    • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

      Eagles fans are saying their rookie CB Poyer sucks and is crazy slow, I guess their main weakness is CB depth.

      • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        excellent!

        NICE!!!! “Rivers needs protection” is the key to doing that…. Ryan Mathews has to be utilized properly, and often.. and they need to run him to the right. Don’t let McCoy get all the love.. RM24 needs to make him invisible.

      • Gunnar Martin

        Thought he was pretty good coming out of Oregon State, but then he slid all the way from the second-third round to the seventh round. Something has to be wrong about him…

  • Cgoodness13

    Eagles gameplan, remind the refs they are a east coast team

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      Hahahahaha! Do it!

  • Daryl Peek

    NO EXCUSES! That’s my mantra for the BOLTS this season.

  • Calman21

    Actually that explains why there was so much Ronnie Brown last game at least in the second half, so many blitzes

  • Gunnar Martin

    Philip needs to look for Green’s number more often. He’s your PERFECT tool Rivers!! And it seems like every time I see him on the field he is open. Bringing more Ladarius into the game plan would definitely spread the opposing D out more. Talk about mismatches

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    While Chips busy dialing up 100 plays, we should sneak a couple trick plays in our offense and throw him off. My all time favorite play: 47:44 mark of this video. Leinart hands off to Bush, bush gives the reverse to Jarrett while Leinart runs a fade route to the endzone and catches a TD pass. Imagine PR catching a TD lol.

    • arnie

      It would take baby giraffe forever to get there. Lol

      • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

        That’s the only flaw in this plan lol gotta get PR moving with the quickness

    • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

      Remember when LT could play QB.

  • Alter Ego

    The Chargers can not be predictable on offense.
    I hope Rivers goes for the whole enchilada the first play (and of course get it) – and we mix it up.
    I want to get Mathews more touches than Brown – hell…I want everyone to get more touches than Brown.
    We have proven we can score consistently…we need to change our gameplan more efficiently during the game.

  • garlicbutter

    Danny Woodhead is the answer! Yes, he’s on my fantasy bench.
