    This shows Mathew's highlights...but at 1:23 watch Hester.
    This is the play before he runs it in for a td.

    That linebacker got p@wned!

    Very good block and Hester has been an important player on this team, unfortunately he will always be bashed because of what was given up to get him in the draft. If he was a 3rd, 4th, or 5th round pick, he would probably be a fan favorite. But since they gave up a 2nd round pick for him, he will always be looked down upon

    Thanks for posting that. I was going to go back and find the replay after reading Hester's quote in the UT.
    http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2010/sep/06/even-best-blocks-often-are-missed/


    “After the game, all everybody in my family wanted to talk about was the touchdown,” says Hester, who ended the Chargers’ game-opening drive with a six-yard burrow into the end zone. “I said, 'Yeah, but did you see the play before?’ They all said, “No.’ I was like, “Oh man, that was my best play of the game! I pancaked (flattened) the linebacker. Didn’t anybody see that?’

    “They go, 'No, we just saw the touchdown.’ Even my wife said she didn’t see the block."


    Also watch Dombrowski's block on 52 while being chopped on the next play. Killer.

    I don't look down on him. I don't really care where a player was taken or what was given up to get them, as long as they produce. The draft is a big guessing game anyway. Who is to say that we gave up a superstar instead of a Rogers Beckett or Reche Caldwell?

    Some people may not, but I think as a whole, that is how he is view by many Charger fans
