Don’t Give Up
If the Chargers fall behind in this game, Chip Kelly’s offense will allow us to get right back in the game. Just look at how close Washington came to bringing that ballgame back on Monday Night. The Chargers can pull off the comeback this time if they need to.

Protect Philip Rivers

The Eagles are aggressive on defense and will be sending the blitz from all angles. They will send 6 or 7 players on that blitz and the Chargers will need to make sure to pick up the guys that are coming through. They also better be prepared with the hot read on some plays. Danny Woodhead could be a huge player in this passing game out of the backfield for the team.

Protect Football

NO TURNOVERS!! We have to protect that football. The interception last week was death. Ryan Mathews did a good job of holding onto the football, even with the Texans ripping away hard at the football all game long. The Eagles and everyone else in the league will have that same gameplan. Hold onto the football.

    Keys to the game… Don’t get conservative with your play calling in the 3rd quarter, don’t let their #1 weapon wander around the backfield uncontested, don’t let them bite off chunks of running yards all game long, don’t get fooled by trick plays, and DON’T GIVE UP!!!!! Oh, and remember to send the officials flowers before the game… lol.

      I’d like to see alot of Weddle up in the box trying to figure the plays out and helping Butler figure out what they are doing, to bad we don’t have much other safety help.

      Wad up with B. Taylor is he game ready yet?

      • Peter Thompson

        Dood… you read my mind Blanksy.. What IS up w/ Taylor. They teased us by putting him in in preseason, and he had the most tackles (and not Bront Bird kinda tackles). Then they make him inactive. I hope that was more about caution. That safety position has been my pet peeve FOREVER. I wish they would stop dicking around, and get someone halfway qualified out there.. good grief.

          Ya if SS play sucks all year I think it’s got to be handled in FA or our 2nd round pick next year or even a first if Dunlap kicks ass and wins the LT job of the future.

        • Ernie Padaon

          oh to have Vaccaro… you see he played linebacker in the dime and in the 3-4 for the Saints last week… SIGH

            Yes I did : ]

        • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

          Nice……I wonder if he plays

        • Peter Thompson

          Let’s hope it means that he is playing, and not that he COULD play, if they absolutely have to.

    Do your Job on Defense and make sure your where you’re supposed to be. Staying disciplined in your assignments is going to be a big factor against the eagles. That article at the U-T shed some “light” on the situation.
