  • Film Study: The Good, The Bad and The Great (week11 vs PIT)

    Welcome back Diehards. We got some sugar this week and boy was it sweet. I certainly didnt expect a victory after seeing PIT comeback and never would have predicted how we won. Still winning tastes great and i am hungry for more.


    The Good:
    2nd quarter 5:30 on the clock, ball on 43yrd line
    Here we see our usual right side of the o-line breakdown when PIT brings 6. Herbert has his back to the def when they blitz and instead of sack shows his athleticism and scampers for big yardage. Notice MDub is getting open in the foot race late and this would have been one of those big shots we all ask for. Parham and Cook cannot block, would rather see Anderson and McKitty in there for this play.
    Also love the pump fake by Herb 11yrds past LOS with no receiver on that side of the field LOL.



    The Ugly:
    4th quarter 12:40 on the clock, ball on 32yrd line
    Yeah this one bypasses BAD and straight into to the UGLY bin. Another speacial teams disaster that turned momentum of the game. Tranquill, Overton, Rumph, Nieman take your pick all missed blocks. Maybe oneday Chargers special teams wont be "speshul"



    The Great:
    3rd quarter 12:00 on the clock, ball on 17yrd line
    Austin Ekeler you are awesome. Cant love this dude enough. PFP takes a simple pass in the flat, jukes the CB then jukes the Safety and drags the DE 4yrds into the Endzone. Props to Cook for his attempted block: it was just ernough.




    Honorable Mentions:

    Hon1
    Derwin doin Derwin things. He initially was fooled by the playaction but recovered and almost makes the big play turnover



    Hon2
    Mdub with the huge game winning TD. If you preditcted this play i call you a liar or you havent watched Charger football the last 10years. It was truly magnificent play.



    As always luv ya

    Derwin’s play was good and could have been great if he had made the pick. Still waiting for that 10 games in.

      Note that the CB (yellow) at one point had decent coverage of Mike Will, but broke off to help cover Slayer over the middle. Up to that point all our passes were short or short-midrange. Steelers hadn't seen anything thrown long up to this point. Safety (red) tries to cover Mike Will, but too late. Again, proves my point that long or mid-long passes are needed to be mixed in with the short stuff...

        Can't say enough about Ekeler, the contact balance is elite and makes him hard to bring down. Locker room leader, incredible effort on and off the field. Hope he considers a coaching position when he's done playing.

        Parham also is gaining confidence in his YAC ability.

        James staying healthy has something to do with how Staley is positioning him imho.
        I'm glad he's not primarily being used as a simple thumper at Strong even though he's great there.
        Staley understands the value of having him threaten the deep pass and it helps keep him safe, something I've always thought would be wise and now feeling validated.

        Lastly, I know Tillery is in TPB dog house but I still think he'll find consistency inside. Keeping the faith.

          It was a less than 20 yards pass, which is not uncommon in the 2021 Charger scheme and yes the Steelers had already seen a 15 yard pass. you guys and your bombs dreams … a bunch of mini Al Davises around here … too funny.

            Thanks for pointing out the fact that we do try to go vertical but still have problems doing so. It’s not like Lombardi goes out of his way to avoid them. It’s a personnel issue right now.

              Ekeler's double-juke HB pass to the flat, reminded me of LT. Speaking of which, Ekeler joins LT as the only Charger players w/ 4 TD and a 100 yard game in the last 40 years.

                Fellow Bombs Away Boys, Coach Staley values 3rd down efficiency, that is his focus, not points.

                        Blocked punts lead to losses,
                        almost every time. We cannot have that. Niemann ! Gaaaht !!

                        Herbert bailed us out again.

                        ST overall improvement must be a point of emphasis. Games are close and good ST is the difference between W's and L's.

                        Field position.
                        Coverage.
                        Big returns.
                        Staley.
                        Genius ?
