Run Defense

14 posts in this topic

The run defense seems to get better and better. I'm starting to think we have a pretty reliable group here! I hope I can still stay this after the Houston game though. I like what I've been seeing overall.

Well the Titans did have a bunch of their starters out.

Our defense did play well against CJ but Locker had some runs that killed us.

The run D has been pretty solid for the past month or so.

Big test in the next two (or three) weeks with Foster and Charles. I hope Conner is okay, even though Angerer plays better against the run.

That has more to do with pass defense. I do agree that Locker has a decent run or two.

Even if they had all their starters, the thing I liked best is that everyone was in the gaps they were responsible for. Hardly any blown assignments. We played disciplined football.

Granted we played very well after we figured out that CJ likes to cutback. Although if we went against a team like Washington or San Francisco, those QBs would crush us.

And we tackled pretty well, even in open space.

"CJ2K averaged 15 rushing yards during the first three weeks of the season, then 112 in his next eight games. The Houston Texans held Johnson to 50 rushing yardslast week, but they are the No. 2 defense in the NFL. There were supposed to be opportunities Sundayagainst an Indianapolis Colts team ranked 22nd against the run.

Apparently no one told the Colts, as they held Johnson to 44 yards on 19 carries -- his lowest output since Oct. 7."

Sure is better than years past. Can't wait to see the d in action next year. I think we'll be really tough. Now our pass run just needs to get back were it once was

Over the past couple of games I have definitely seen an improvement in our open field/open space tackling. Solid

Now if we can defend the Texans cut back game in similar fashion as today I think we've got a pretty decent chance.

The run defense has definetly been playing better. The next three weeks will be the true test for our run-D. Did anyone else notice on Lockers big run on the first drive, Freeney was loafing at half speed, if he had husled that would have been a five yard run at the most, couldn't believe his lack of effort on that play, very unlike Freeney.

I don't think that was freeney. I'm pretty sure that was Mathis

No it was definetly freeney, they ran the play at Mathis and freeney was just jogging down the line, he looked like he thought someone else was going to make the play, He was going half speed.

    • Ok, that's fine. But can you enlighten me on why you think he will be fine. What have you seen that makes you think he's better than Butler? Especially since he's rarely been on field. Hopefully he will be as good as Revis but he needs to be playing at some point.
    • Lets not get to carried away while we'v seen some good things its just the preseason its hard to judge the play on the field in these glorified practices lets wait until the regular season starts against starters stupid penalties need to be addressed that stood out glaringly , I'm hopeful & I believe this year will be much better but we are just getting started with 2 preseason games in the books we'v seen flashs I can agree with that but the sizzle can fizzle I need to see more consistency for 60 minutes before I buy what your selling .
    • Why did John Spanos, the President Of Football Operations in San Diego, even release this statement publicly about Bosa?    http://www.profootballrumors.com/2016/08/john-spanos-joey-bosas-holdout-absolutely-asinine   Why feel the need to air your dirty laundry about negotiations that broke down or never came to mutual fruition? It's so amateur & unprofessional IMO. Just say to your fan base that Bosa rejected your new offer, doesn't wanna play here, & move on.    Spanos looks like a darn cry baby. Grow the hades up John Jesus. If I was a free agent, I'd never wanna play for the Chargers since they put their grievances in the public eye if they are ticked off in the front office. Private player contract negotiations need to stay behind closed doors. Who cares if Bosa hasn't signed his rookie deal? He's not costing San Diego any money right now. Okay, your pick was a wash big deal. It happens all the time. Just cut your loses & turn the page John.    What's asinine John is your childish, unprofessional behavior in this case John. 
    • The MIGHTY football God Belichick has once again struck fear into the Colts fans with a wave of a hand in the media. May God have mercy on our football souls.
    • I agree Bosa is not a Colt, if he were he would already be signed .

    • Hey there Amy,    Nice to meet ya & don't be shy. It's an awesome mixture of deep thinkers, jokesters, & diehard horseshoe fans here. All opinions & perspectives are welcome here. We have football fanatics, causal observers, & just curious people on here who like to vent, blow steam, broaden their horizons, & just chuckle at stuff the regulars always say. All team allegiances are encouraged to express themselves politely & peacefully here, which is pretty cool too.    I just watch the games at home on Direct TV Sunday ticket by myself usually.
