Danny Woodhead Has Been An X-Factor

Danny Woodhead has been a huge lift to the offense. His arrival has opened up the playbook for Philip Rivers and his ability to catch passes out of the slot or out of the backfield gives Philip Rivers a big time weapon on offense. He makes plays and he is a strong runner when the give him the ball.

I love that the Chargers are relying on him more and more in the game. I love that Mike McCoy are giving him more and more opportunities to make plays on offense.
Ryan Mathews doesn’t have the same ability to catch passes like Woodhead, but he will be the bull to get those tough yards. That will be his role this season. He is not going to be the superstar on offense, but he will keep working to get those yards at the end of the game and be the guy to churn it on on short yardage situations.

The Chargers do a much better job of moving the football when Danny Woodhead is on the field. He has been an x-factor for the boys on offense.

More Woodhead!

    I love how he has been worked into the offenses game plan. River is threading the needle to get him passes over some of those DBs. Such a great pick up. I hope we bring somebody in to return kicks, I just do want Woodhead getting hurt on special teams!

    I 100% last year thought Rivers could only throw to huge dudes but Woodhead and Royal are tearing up those thoughts, PR can hit tiny guys anywhere on the field in the right scheme, That 1st TD to Woodhead was placed so perfectly over the Linebackers outstretched arms it was amazing. Woodhead is the ultimate little white weapon.
