Default Does Champ Shadow Jackson?

The Chargers dont really have any other options other than Gates (I think WWIII can do fine on him, ala Witten)

So do we let Champ go 1 on 1 all game with Jackson and make Rivers go to his other WR's who really are no threat..

I don't know. I mean, could WWIII hang with Gates all game? I am not so sure about that. I think Hill is a pretty capable CB and could split duty with Champ on covering Jackson. I still think SD has some pretty good weapons on O, such as Chambers (who has given us fits in the past) and Sproles out of the backfield.

Doesn't Champ cover only cover the strongside? I could have sworn that he has, and will always be a left cornerback.

Yeah I don't see Champ moving. You know those old 30 year olds, so set in their ways.

I just realized this could be taken as sarcasm, it's not though, don't worry, Champ loves him some left corner. I think he might be like Zoolander, and only able to cover in one direction

Philip Rivers is the key. Vincent Jackson is a good receiver no doubt but he's not like a TO, Moss, B-marsh or receiver that will devastate you after making the catch. Rivers delivers his passes including his deep balls with unreal accuracy that few corners can defend. If we can pressure him into quick releases and tackle solidly I think we can shut down their offense

Champ stays on one side of the field and he will continue to do so.

The only game I can ever remember Champ shadowing a guy all over the field was in New England last year against Moss. And considering they didn't choose to go that route this year against Moss, I doubt they'll do it this game against Jackson. My guess is that he'll stick to the defensive left side where he is 99% of the time.

I do not know about the rest of you, but Sproles scares me big time. We need to get pressure on phyllis or it will be a long night.

Neither of our corners leave their side of the field. Champ stays Left, Goodman stays right.

Ditto, Choice was scaring me on those screen passes against the Cowboys, and Sproles is twice as shifty.

And don't even get me started on kicking the ball to him :S Needless to say, I will be clenched.

Agree with everything already said. The few times he's shadowed a player it's been the tight end. I think we just try to play Jackson straight up and try and fluster Rivers. I'm personally more worried about Sproles and Gates than Jackson.

No threat? I would disagree. Watch out for Malcom Floyd. He is every bit the deep threat that Jackson is, just not as physical. But he has the best hands on the team.

We also have Chambers and Nanee, both of whom are quite capable of making big plays.

That is how we shut down Randy Moss who is better than Jackson. I don't think we focus particularly on Gates, I think we are going to cover the way we cover and try to get to Rivers to keep Gates or another TE blocking and take away his targets that way.

Remember he shadowed Tony Gonzales in the '04 home opener?

That worked out pretty well ... but that was Larry Coyer of course.

Right. Nolan's pretty creative, but he tends to try and get players to just beat the man in front of them. He doesn't run a very gadgety defensive scheme.

I'm already clenched. But I have faith the coaches will be watching what Pitt did as far as Sproles. He's going to get return yards, let's just limit them.

I don't worry about it too much. As long as the D players keep their assignments and don't overpursue they'll limit the big plays, same as they've done all season. SD will get some big plays in the passing game, they're not a bunch of scrubs, the object is keep those big plays short of the endzone.

As long as the D does what they've done all year, keep their assignments then swarm to the ball-carrier and make good open field tackles, they'll be fine. Obviously, good open field tackling is a key to success.
