Los Angeles Chargers LB Uchenna Nwosu only saw 2 snaps on defense on Sunday. Why didn’t he see the field more?!

After a tremendous preseason, we left one of our top draft picks LB Uchenna Nwosu on the bench for the whole game. Looking at the stat sheet, he only played 2 snaps?!? TWO! DOS! Basically none! That is only 2 more plays than I saw the field!

Why would you keep him on the bench the whole game? We knew that Joey Bosa was going to miss out on the game and Nwosu wasn’t part of the gameplan?

We struggled to get pressure on Patrick Mahomes throughout the game and we kept one of our best pass rushers hanging out on the sidelines. How does that make any sense at all?!

I know that Gus Bradley needs some time to figure out how to rotate these players into the game, but Nwosu should have been part of the game plan from the start. This needs to get fixed and we need to get him on the field.

Kyle Emmanuel was getting the time on the field. He did’t play much either, but when he did, we noticed him in all the ways that we shouldn’t! It is like Andy Reid knew that he was on the field and planned to attack him as soon as they saw he was there! Would Nwosu have done better? We don’t know, but I would have liked to see his athleticism on the field.

Nwosu needs to get action. He needs to see the field to get a good feel of the game! With Joey Bosa sitting out the game nursing his foot, we should have seen even more of Nwosu on the field. We should have seen more action from him.

What do you think of Nwosu’s snap count?
