Derek Cox was benched on Sunday for his poor play, but when practice started up again for the Chargers the following week, he was back at corner taking the reps as the starter.

So you are telling me the 15 minutes that he was on the sideline was enough of a punishment for playing poorly for the first 8 games of the season?

Johnny Patrick came in and took the reps as the starter for Cox while he was benched. Hopefully Cox can bounce back. We need him to play at a high level for the defense.

We all are tired of him getting burned by the defense over and over and over…. AND OVER AGAIN! Peyton Manning is going to look over in his direction a few times this weekend and every time he decides to throw the ball out his way, Chargers fans will be holding their breath hoping that the receiver drops the ball or hoping Peyton overthrew it.

Hoping Cox can get his act straight.
