    In the last three seasons, the Chargers’ special teams have produced five Pro Bowl performances, and the man largely responsible for the Bolts’ success in the kicking game is about to receive his just due.

    Steve Crosby has been selected the 2007 NFL Special Teams Coach of the Year by Professional Kicking Services, Inc. He’ll receive an award at a banquet on April 1 in Nevada.

    Last season, the Chargers scored five special teams touchdowns. Darren Sproles returned both a kickoff and a punt for a touchdown, Antonio Cromartie returned a missed field goal an NFL-record 109 yards for a score and also recovered a loose ball for a touchdown on the punt block team, and Brandon Siler found the end zone after recovering a fumble on a kickoff.

    Crosby’s award is presented annually by Professional Kicking Services, Inc. in conjunction with their Free Agent punters and kickers field try-out session attended by NFL Special teams coaches and NFL scouts.

    Same here - gave it the same chance as hell freezing over, 2nd blue moon in the same month, and several other items I KNOW I'm not creative enough to get by even a minimal word filter! ;)

    Congrats to Steve Crosby and every player on Special Teams!



    (...and even more to AJ Smith for loading so much talent on this team as to prove the old adage is true: "Even a blind hog finds and acorn every now and then). :tup:

    2 seasons ago I was convinced Steve Crosby's next career would be in transportation... (Driving short buses).

    2 seasons ago his ST's were not that impressive. Since, the returns have been stellar, coverage exemplary, FG's on the mark most of the time.

    I think the big change is the whole team is firing on all cylinders now.

    I tend to look at the players first rather that the coach. There were break downs this year in the kick off game that worried me some, but by and large, the STs did well, 'specially the return and punting teams, IMHO.
