    I don't claim to know everything about football because if I did know everything I'd be coaching/ scouting/ playing in the NFL, so... I have one easy question, and I'd like people to chime in on what I am missing:

    Why don't we line up with split backs, when we have the "best running duo" in the leauge.

    I don't remember, in recent times, seeing Turner and LT in the backfield, and we saw Phili do it a few seasons back with great success, and we see it sometimes in New Orleans (you don't see it as often).

    Anyhow, why not use both in play as compared to either/ or? Wouldn't that help keep defenses on their toes?

    Thanks- maybe I'm missing something, so that's why I am asking...

    That's funny, how we complained that Cameron would get "too cute", and now we want Norv to shake things up.

    It's also funny that both complaints are valid. :lol:

    I'm with you Trumpetdude, but it isn't "rocket science" (no offense to the non-rocket science community- haha).

    2 backs- let's describe the possibilities:
    1. Hand off to LT
    2. Hand off to Turner
    3. Screen pass to LT
    4. Screen pass to Turner
    5. Do nothing with either back, and hit Gates
    6. Do nothing with either back and hit one of our mediocre WR (while the front 7 are figuring out which back to go after)
    7. Flea flicker/ play action with LT making the throw

    Truth is folks- Norval Eugene could be a lot more creative with the RB talent we have (not to mention the rest of the offensive guys). I hope he wakes up and starts doing some of these fun things. Like jdog- I've got wood just typing/ reading this.

    All the chargers have to do is on offense don't run into a stacked d-line on first down time after time. Mix it up. Get a quick short passing game organized. Which they started doing last game.

    And on defense cottrell has to figure out he has two of the best pass rushers in the league. But move them around on the line of scrimmage so opposing o-lines will have a hard time figureing out how to set up schemes to block them. And because dobbins is having a hard time with covearge go to a nickle and use weddle alot more till wilhelm gets over his illness.

    i not sure .. but i swear we did line up with split backs with LT in motion that looked like he was goona receive the snap instead of philip rivers .. but what happened was philip took the snap from a shotgun passing the ball from a pass protection !!!


    LT might be running this play in the near future if i am right about what i saw !!!

    :tup:
