Steven: “It’s been fun for us fans to watch those things on Twitter and Instagram. I want to shift to talk about some things on the field. You’ve been having a lot of success on special teams lately, I don’t know off the top of my head if you still lead the league in special teams tackles but we’ve really noticed a big improvement in that area of your game. What would you attribute that recent success to?”
Derek: “Well yes, I do still lead the league in (special teams) tackles. I would just say, I mean shoot it’s a lot of things, a lot of it is just making the plays that are there when they present themselves. There’s a lot that goes into it scheme-wise, to everybody doing their jobs, if it wasn’t for other guys and making the ball come my way in certain situations I wouldn’t have those plays to be made.
Sometimes it’s just kind of luck of the draw, and the guy comes your way and you gotta execute and make the play. Fortunately for me, I’ve had a lot of those opportunities and made a bunch of plays. I’m hoping to do some more and would love to finish the year on top (of the special teams tackles).”
On the #Chargers' flight back from Oakland earlier this month, Nick Dzubnar pulled this clip up and yelled to Derek Watt.
"Bro! You put that dude on his ass!"
