This is the quick hits, after I re-watched the game, and everybody pretty much covered the obvious. So I’ll try to take a different approach and be a little more light hearted. It’s Pre-season, no sense in beating up the Chargers over warm-up game.
Special teams – I miss RICH BISACCIA. The blocking, tackling and outright bad angles on ST were poor to down right horrendous. The Chargers managed to help the Seahawks to good field position on several occasions which gave the hawks a short field to make points. On the other side, the Chargers failed to return the ball to the 20 several times. This is why Rich was brought in. And right now it showed, he made that thing go.
2-3’s – The hawks back-ups showed they were a little bit better that the Chargers. Why only a little? They were almost shut out in the first half, then pretty much held to 7 points, until CBJ, Dombrowski, Meachem, and special teams helped the Hawks back into the game. Now consider this. Pete Carroll has been building his roster for 4 years. McCoy has had his for a little over two months and they gave the Hawks all they could handle. So, imagine what the Chargers will look like, depth wise, after 4 years under McCoy?
