    Three balls, who deserves them and why?

    Ronnie Brown should get one, but I give mine to Rich Ohrnberger who came in and played good enough to make us not discuss the loss of hardwick!
    Donald Butler was a machine today! 8 solo tackles and 2 assists to lead the D, his forced fumble changed the momentum!
    Mike Schifres gets my last one. He has been consistenly good all season. His hang time helped several times.

    What are yours?

    Good choices all, but mine goes to John Pagano. He mixed it up anad kept Dalton uncomfortable all day, and forced him to become "Bad Andy", to our benefit.
    Bring on Denver! :broncossuck:

    Linebacking Corps -- Forced turnovers and made Dalton's life miserable
    Pags -- Great gameplan...the D was ready to roll
    Ronnie Brown -- Nice to see him rip off the clinching TD

    Solid win. Now back to work in the morning.

    Pagano - 2nd half adjustments.
    Melvin Ingram - Best game of his career.
    Philip Rivers - Excellent when given the chance.

    Rich Ohrnberger - HUGE job stepping up for Hardwick
    Melvin Ingram - It might not show in stats but he was hitting Dalton constantly
    Jahleel Addae and Darrell Stuckey - the other safeties manned up big time across the field
    Ronnie Brown - he shouldn't be on the roster but what a wonderful way to end his chargers time
    Ladarius Green - oh lordy is he going to be a weapon in the near future
    John Pagano - stepped up and called a masterful game

    Today my name is Oprah.

    I can't give out just 3. Everybody gets a game ball. There was not a weak link on the field today.

    Chargers pass rush
    Melvin Ingram
    Donald Butler
    Addae
    Pagano
    Rivers
    Woodhead
    Ohrnberger
    Andy Dalton

    Edit: Not only did I not read that there was 3, but I refuse to listen. Too many awesome performances (but I'd have to give them to Ingram, Addae, and Butler)

    Ingram for sure. He has shown flashes since coming back this year from injury but today he put it all together. He drew a holding call, hounded Dalton all day and got the pick when it was offered to him on a silver platter. He is a difference maker.

    Donald Butler. Played his best game of the year. The forced fumble was huge.

    Shareece Wright--He takes alot of crap, some of it justified. But he is super-competitive and seems to really enjoy going up against top receivers. With a bit more consistency, Wright could be 1/2 of the answer to who starts at CB for us next year.

    Rivers. Did not make a bad throw all game. He was in complete command out there and the offense reflected his confidence.

    And I'll bake them all a cake if they celebrate the win tonight with a glass of warm milk and they're all in bed by 10pm.

    Pags did a great job, but Dalton got out of bed uncomfortable.

    I like to think he’s in a room right now, alone with Ken Anderson & Boomer Esiason, and they’re both just reading him the riot act! :mad:

    Rivers- He has been amazing all year.
    Ohrnberger- Amazing job filling in.
    Ingram- missed a few tackles but was awesome the rest of the game
    Woodhead- Ran hard and constantly moved the pile all day.
    DJ Fluker- just a mauling run blocker and was great in pass blocking.


    Anyone else see why our corners would improve with pass rush? Once we got pressure in this game our corners started making plays.

    I can't compliment the defense enough. What a call by Pags, very opportunistic defense and sucked them right in.

    Woodhead and Reyes kept us in the game in the 1st half, along with Mathews, after that everyone joined the party.

    Definitely a word for Ohrnberger, bigtime game for a guy to step in and play so well in a crucial position.

    Woody though, absolutely superb every time we needed a yard, never missed a beat.

    Best move McCoy can make as a first year Coach would be to let River's call the game, just as Fox does with Manning.

    Looked like chalk & cheese when we went to the hurry-up in the 2nd half, compared to the 1st...............put the game in your best player's hands and take what may.

    Agree with your other 2 calls also.... Pag's was pushing the proverbial uphill again in the 1st half, but at least had the cajones to get more aggressive in the 2nd, paid off for him in spades.

    I was way off the mark saying that bringing back Ingram this year was a huge mistake, so far, so good, keep improving Super Mel, that pass rush is invaluable.

    I'll do 3 each side of the ball.

    Woodhead...f/a steal of the year
    Ladarius...got hops and wheels
    and #17...fed his playmakers/no crucial mental mistakes

    Ingram, nice pic for a T-Rex
    Shareece, hands in the rain
    Addae...excitable/exciting player

    Go Bots!

    It's been "too soon" all year to talk about these things but McCoy fugged up bad. And this is the one he promised he would do again! At the end of the half he played for punt to be safe. He was deep in his own territory after the int and he ran 3 times and punted. The Bengals started with I think 1:37 and 3 time-outs. Just like last time, the punt was awesome but even with that, the Bengals didn't have far to go to get a TD or FG and got a field goal. The right call was to "risk the int" and play for yardage and a score. So what if they intercepted and got a field goal anyways. It wasn't "conservative", it was stupid. Someone paying attention to that feel free to correct me.
