    For our two higher paid DL, where have they been? Neither were in the starting lineup this week, although I know there is tons of rotation.

    After all the buildup for these two, where are they, and what are they doing?

    If you're ever expecting Derrick Morgan to show up on Sunday, you're expecting way too much.

    oh maybe he did. can't remember. I remember Pitotua being one of the starting DEs. Can't remember the other. may have been morgan. Either way, he seemed nonexistent on the field, to the point that I almost forgot he and Wimbley were on the roster. And we really didn't get a tremendous pass rush for most of the game it seemed like. But all's well that ends well.

    I love seeing Phillip Rivers lose. The crowd got so fired up after his misconduct penalty.

    And I'm generally a fan of Reynaud, but his returns out of the end zone hurt us more than they helped.

    Morgan did seem to get lost in the shuffle yesterday, but thats ok, not every week will be a big day for him, or anyone for that matter.

    Week-1 Jackie Battle was the hero, yesterday he had only 4 carries. Just how it goes sometimes. Doesn't mean Morgan sucks.

    Now for Wimbley, IDK why he's still around but we're probably better off keeping him til next year. Not like theres anyone better we can go sign.

    Rivers was getting rid of ball very fast. I saw Morgan and Pitotua all game and a little bit of Klug. I don't remember seeing Wimbley at all yesterday. Morgan was getting good pressure on the end but wasn't getting there in time.

    I don't know about the cap hit implications, but I'm sure we could find someone for league minimum who will average zero sacks per game as a rush specialist. lol.

    Was Freeney playing for the Chargers Yesterday?? Forgot all about him! I didn't notice him one bit. Was he playing or is he hurt already? was kind of looking forward to seeing him in a new scenario.

    Wimbley was on the field for six snaps(per Wyatt). Ayers was playing end on passing downs.

    Morgan had a couple of good rushes. Pushed Dunlap into Rivers' lap on one and forced a bad throw to the back in the flat.

    The Chargers were throwing the ball pretty quickly most of the game.

    Regarding wimbley... OUCH. he must be in the dog house.

    Thanks for the update on Morgan. When at the game, you see more (or in some cases much less) than what you see on TV. No Titans DL really stuck out too much. Wish we could have got a few more big hits in on that arrogant POS.
