    He did a lot better tonight.


    Full blitz packages, press coverage, forcing them to get the ball out quick......much better. The 29 looks bad, but the INT return and the BIG kick returns are mostly to blame.

    STill needs to improve. WE've got way too much player talent on denfensse for this defense to be so porus.

    I still say fire cottrell. Rivera with one hand tied behind his back could do better. Were still not solid at all.

    No offense to the cottrell family. But I would like to see a super bowl championship for the chargers. Spanos has to pull away from the bar and realize were hurting defensively.

    I think somebody called him when ESPN said that Favre Beans gets nervous when the defense moves around


    I swear, I saw it. As soon as they made that comment, our defense started moving around


    FIRE FAT BOY!!!

    Oh I agree they still need to get better.

    But 3 of their 4 TD drives were shorter than 20yds, one of them being the INT, blame that on the ST's.

    ...As another certifiable Ted Cottrell hater, I'll admit the defense at least press covered for a change and sent some blitzes. By the way, did anyone catch the Favre interview on ESPN following the game? He mentioned that the Bolts definitely surprised him somewhat with the press coverage and blitz packages. He went on to say that the Charger personnel lends itself better to press coverage and not laying back. This is why Ted has to go. He wastes sooooo much time and unneccesary losses, finally learning what even our opponents already knew.

    Exactly, he was expecting the Chargers he saw in week 3 last year in Green Bay, and the one he's been watching on film the last 2 weeks.

    It's amazing how much better a defense looks when it sends all out blitzes and gets pressure on a qb.

    Still don't care for Turd Cottrell.

    Neither do I.

    He needs to do it against a team that didn't win only 4 games last year, I dont care how much better a 39yr old washed up HOFr makes them.

    I actually didn't see a lot of all out blitzes. Looked like we were just sending one extra guy about 40-50% of the time. But I only saw more than 5 guys coming once or twice.

    i think they found those saved files from 2007 hidden in a zip drive and started uploading them into Cottrell. Unfortunately it takes a long time so I don't think its more then 1/3 of the way done.

    ...With Cro, Jammer and Cason, we should be able to pull off a Philly, Raven or Steeler blitzfest every now and then. Imagine Jimmie Johnson, Rex Ryan or even Dick Lebeau as our DC. Philly and the Ravens had the mighty Patsies in what should been losses last year with average offenses, and less than average QBs at the helm. They had them because they pulled out all the stops and were aggressive and very creative on defense. It's all about confusion and disguising your blitzes. I don't understand why we can't just mimic what these devastating defenses do? Is our personnel that inferior? With this offense, the Chargers should just put people away but Teddy has me pulling my hair out most of the time instead:tdown:
