You're right. Rewatching the Chargers game, McGahee always plows ahead for a couple more yards after contact.
While Hillman, Ball, and Moreno go down at first contact. It generally makes a difference of a couple yards, and is the primary reason why McGahee is effective, while the three-legged stool only aspires to be.
