i had to watch the game again. i wanted to know who actually showed up and who didnt. offense wrs: there is no way i can tell you whether the wrs played well. they didnt have enough chance to actually catch the ball. o-line: our tackles are not the problem. stewart should be the starter at RT and bell should move back to guard. roos was pretty solid in pass protection. he had one bad play at the end of the first half. he got bull rushed pretty good. his run blocking is average, he needs to finish his blocks. i watched a 3rd and 1 play maybe three or four times in amazement at how bad our guards are. i think olsen was supposed to scoop the end/dt to KM so olsen could get the inside backer. he never even got his hands off the lineman. needless to say, the backer made the tackle for no gain. qbs: i wont get into collins. vince made some nice throws at the end of the game to the sidelines. i especially liked one to roydell. brandon jones dropped one that was pretty catchable that would have been just as good as the one to roydell. rbs: i've lost faith in chris brown. as many of you know i have never been a huge fan of his to begin with. but there were a few plays at the end of the game when he show no effort at all. on a 4th down play when vince ran for a first down he had a chance to light up merriman who wouldnt have seen the hit coming. merriman made the tackle 7 yards down the field. another play that got under my skin was on a qb draw when chris was supposed to be the lead blocker and he didnt block a soul. vince ran into his back because he just stopped running. vince could have gotten another 5 yards easy. lendale ran with purpose. made a heads up play late in the game on a draw to get out of bounds from all the way in the middle of the field. dropped a pass. TEs: not much to say on them. troupe's blocking has imporved. i can see why they made him the starter. he's no longer a liability in run blocking. he's not an asset, but he wont cost us anything. defense first let me say that out of 73 plays we blitzed five times. thats about 7% of the time. that is the worst thing i have ever seen anyone do against a young QB. now that i have gotten my mandatory dig in at schwartz i can move on. d-line: they played with effort, but little production. i guess some of that would have to do with only having 5 bodies and being on the field for 73 plays. laboy is all effort no skill. the dts obviously didnt play very well. mahelona had a few good plays when he got penetration , but other than that it was pretty ugly. lbs: i saw sirmon three times. running behind tomlinson watching him go in to the endzone, being juked out by tomlinson and having gates jump over him for a big pass. time to put in tulloch. thornton got plowed over by neal on an LT td and ran around neal on another LT td. bulluck played ok. dbs: lamont was typical lamont, showing up late, getting beat deep and for some reason biting on a pump fake by a WR after he passed the line of scrimmage. hope was all over the place. really one of the few who showed any type of heart. reynaldo played the run well, but was once again gobbled up in pass coverage. pacman didnt have one pass thrown at him. there was woolfolk sighting on the charger's last drive. on the 70 yard michael turner run, he had a good three step head start on pacman. pacman blew by him like he was standing still.
