Default Blown up screen pass...

Man, that was something else.

When the Chargers ran that little screen (I think it was late in the 3rd quarter) to LT and you could see all of the linemen disengage and Haggan hit him for a 4 yard loss...

I have never seen a play like that where it was so obvious that every single defender knew exactly what was coming.

This D is incredible.

The halftime adjustments are amazing. They were killing us with screens in the first half.

that was hte best defensive play of the day. literally, 3 lineman had direct shots at rivers and TURNED away from him to get to the screen before he even threw the ball. they did not bite for a second, it was truly amazing to watch.

The three dudes and I watching the game last night all yelled "SCREEN!" and then high fived when our guys disengaged to make the tackle. Freakin' awesome.

I love this team.

I do have to admit that was fun to watch. Every single guy turned around and went after LT. i think that was the last screen attempt of the day too, lol.

edit: upon further reflection what those guys did to adjust to the play was damn scary! Other offenses are going to see that in game film and poop their pants

That play was awesome, I had to wonder though what the players saw that made them ALL adjust.


Off topic but: ANYONE ELSE ever watch the old NFL games on NFL Network? When the coach/backup QB signals the play in to the QB, and he either waves his hand infront of his face or draws a "TV" in the air with his fingers ... SCREEN PLAY!

Good coaching and a better play call. Players are buying the JMCD/Nolan koolaid.

Yea, that was one awesome play. My favorite of the night. The screen is a killer, and they read it and broke off perfectly, that was one sweet play.
