    Chargers' coordinator: We're blitzing Romo

    August, 20, 2010 Aug 207:55PM ETEmail Print Comments1 By Matt MosleyOXNARD, Calif. -- The Beast had the chance to visit with San Diego Chargers defensive coordinator Ron Rivera earlier today via Dallas-Fort Worth's 103.3 ESPN. I asked him about the fact that he recently chased Bears quarterback Jay Cutler from a game because he blitzed on six of the first eight plays.

    Rivera said that the "prevalence of blitz packages" across the league has made it absolutely necessary to work on timing during the preseason. He said he doesn't have the luxury of staying in his base defense, and he can't worry about an opposing team that's missing two starting offensive linemen. So will he go after Tony Romo the same way he did Cutler?

    He absolutely will. The good news for Cowboys fans is that offensive coordinator Jason Garrett spent some time after Thursday's practice working on special protection packages for Romo. The bad news is that Rivera is well aware that Robert Brewster is lining up at right tackle.

    Over/under on Romo plays in Saturday's game: 15. Give me the under.

    Romo lasts longer than Cutler tomorrow?

    Only because its the 2nd game of the pre-season.

    But I love Rivera's attitude, he does a good job of pumping these guys up......I kinda wish he was our HC, and Norv was our OC.

    I'd love to see this Bolt team become a nightmare for QB's. We might just see that defense we were promised last year. :tup:
