    Vike middle on defense consists of Joseph, Kendricks and Sendejo.

    Wanna run into the teeth of that hurricane?

    Suggest we attack the perimter with sweeps and screens - & hope that we tire out the Viking pursuers enough to run DJ inside later in the game.

    I couldn't believe it either. Then I realized the Cardinals were following the Suns blueprint for tanking and kinda made sense.

    A fun drinking game that us Chargers fans played on our forum when McCoy was coaching the Bolts was to take a shot of vodka for every time there was a run up the middle on 1st down.

    In other words, we'll have 11 first downs.

    We all hate McCoy, but nobody of us can say that we know more football than him. Of course he must get more creative with our run schemes. But has anybody in here ever thought that our OL might not be athletic enough? Iupati has become old and injuries have slowed him down. Pugh has also had his fair share of injuries and was never athletic. Smith can barely move at all, Wetzel stiff as well. Cole is fairly athletic but still a rookie C. Humphries is athletic but not a good run blocker. Gresham/RSJ are useless for blocking if you watch them closely. Maybe that's the reason why McCoy keeps pounding through the middle, because he is rather facing 2nd & 10 than 2nd & 14. Who knows.

    nonsense, again, last year we had a line of backups that played better as a unit. This is coaching, plain and simple

    No one's a bigger Humphries skeptic than I, but saying that Humphries is a bad run blocker is just wrong. Just two weeks ago, these guys had no problem getting down the field on that screen play to DJ.

    Humphries iupati and the TEs were here before as well was Wetzel when the run game was better so it’s all Pugh and coles fault they can’t run outside?

    DJ has done a poor job of following his FB, when he's been in there...and he's been opening holes to the left guard side (behind Iupati?)...
