    Big win on national TV!

    Offense -- VJack. 7 for 120...Monstrous! Honorable mention to Floyd for the Big PI call leading to the first TD, should have been a second on the play before the pick.

    Defense -- Siler and Dobbins for the big goal line stand! Slight edge to siler with the sack.

    Time to kill the Pumpkins. Floor is open...

    Norv Turner, that is all.


    The dude has earned the loyalty of ANYONE who claims to be a Chargers fan.

    Offense - VJax, came up with big plays today to keep the drive alive including that INSANE catch in the 1st. Honorable mention Floyd

    Defense - Siler, dude's a phucking sav.

    Special teams - Three-way tie between Kaeding, Scifres and Osgood. Kaeding had some very nice, deep kicks today, Scifres continued to be the best punter but wouldn't have pinned the Cowboys if it weren't for Osgood.

    Where's Special Teams?
    Osgood should be on that list. Those back to back stops inside the 3 were awesome!!!

    Before I give gameballs, I am shouting out to Norv for excellent playcalling--he ran the ball just enough to keep the Cowgirls honest and to free up VJ and Gates when it really mattered. Casserly said that AJ will likely be extending him after this season, and I have absolutely no argument with it. :tup:

    Defense--Siler was a maniac against the run, was the key part of our goal line stand, showed pass-rushing skills, and even kept Witten honest. A++++

    Offense--Siler, for allowing us to win with 20 points! But in all honesty, VJ made some terrific catches that made what could have been a nailbiter into a game well in-hand.

    Special Teams--Siler made...oh, fine, I give it to Osgood for making the job of downing a ball look far too easy.

    I agree with pretty much everyone else. Siler on defense, VJ on offense, and the SciFi/Osgood combo on special teams.

    Offense- Rivers. Say what you want about VJack being the man, Rivers was PHENOMENAL stepping up in the pocket and picking them apart.

    Defense- Siler. Amazing game.

    ST- Kaeding. Clutch

    Rivers, Vjax & Siler.

    Also love Norv's playcalling the last 4 weeks. I have been critical of Norv in the past, but you just can't argue with the success he is having lately.

    Norv's done really well lately. He's balanced running with passing and thrown in quite a few neat gadget plays like the wild frog one that caused the Pass Interference call on Floyd. Makes it difficult for the opposition, big time.

    Turner receives game ball

    Casey Pearce
    Posted Dec 14, 2009

    Cheers erupted in the Chargers locker room Sunday when quarterback Philip Rivers gave Head Coach Norv Turner a game ball following the team’s 10th factory of the season, one that came in the city where Turner won two Super Bowls as the Cowboys offensive coordinator.

    Philip Rivers[​IMG]’ final completion of the day was a short toss that covered about two yards but served as a gesture that showed just how much the Chargers appreciate their head coach.

    After Norv Turner congratulated his team on their eighth-consecutive victory, Rivers got everyone’s attention and awarded a game ball to Turner in effort to show his appreciation for the way Turner has guided the club.

    “He doesn’t care one bit about getting recognition, but he certainly deserves a ton of credit for where we’re at,” Rivers said. “I know it was special for him to come to Dallas. He’s always the one giving out game balls so I thought I’d give him one this time for the great job he’s done.”

    Turner spent three seasons as the Cowboys’ offensive coordinator and won two Super Bowls as the team’s play caller. While Rivers recognized the sentimental value that likely made the victory a little sweeter for his coach, Turner’s said his true joy came in beating a good football team on the road, regardless of his history with that team.

    “It’s an emotional deal because of what’s at stake,” Turner said. “I’m extremely proud of our football team.”

    Offense - McNeil - guarded the blindside so well allowing Phillip to confidently step up into the pocket.

    Defense - goalline stand was spectacular, setting the tone for the game. i thought the D-line was exceptional here, allowing the LB's to make the plays.

    ST - Osgood

    Coaching - Mr Turner who looks more confident with every game - terrific play calling.

    In addition to the obvious ones listed here, let's give a game ball to Wade Phillips - he knows what the December curse is & how to fall in line. :tup:

    I am amazed Wade is still in the job, methinks he is a goner v soon. Ironic that the pants were coached off him by the guy whose job he got.

    Way to go Norv. Loved that pass out of the frog to M80 that caused the PI. Looking forward to so much more creativity now. More passes from Legs and LT too.

    Offense - Rivers
    Defense - Run stuffers Siler and MC, hey and check out our safeties, 2 undrafted FAs and a 6th rounder WOW.
    Special Teams - Osgood

    Don't forget Oliver, who is essentially a 4th--he had a very quiet "do everything" type of day that Weddle is accustomed to having, leading the team in tackles and providing good coverage in the middle of the field. :tup:

    Merriman was absolutely key to getting Siler his first sack of the year, and has made a difference in his limited playing time...although English was superb last game at defending screens and coverage.

    I'd give the ball to the whole team, since it was such a team victory.


    If that doesn't work then instead

    Offense: Philip Rivers
    Defense: Brandon Siler
    ST: Kassim Osgood
    And a special one for Norv Turner

    Tx for reminding me. English's best play as a Pro happened last nite. Boys were running left with Barber. English was (being blocked by Adams I think) running right. He was able to hold himself at the point and pull Barber down with his right arm. Unreal play. A play v few of our LBs make once engaged with the blocker. Barber was stopped for no gain.

    Anyone see Casey Pearce's tweet. Apparently Brooking has come out since the game and let it be known that from v early on Rivers was identifying the Dallas blitz scheme and reacting accordingly.

    Nice one Philip. Looks like Wade hasn't changed much then and is even using the same terminology etc. WOW.

    Gates has balls

    Tight end Antonio Gates joked that he didn’t notice the Cowboys paying him any special attention.

    “Did they?” Gates said with a smile. “I couldn’t tell. They weren’t doing nothing but double-teaming me and holding me.”

    Gates managed to catch four passes for 44 yards, including the 14-yard touchdown reception that gave the Chargers a 17-10 lead. He also surpassed 1,000 receiving yards for the season with a 7-yard reception in the first quarter. It’s his second time past 1,000.
