I really have no issue with that vision. I was just saying I wouldn't really be overly critically with how Haeg played right tackle yesterday because it was a hard spot for him to be in given the situation.
The first time they were in the red zone, I saw that 3 WR formation, and right away, Pagano called timeout. Immediately, the Chargers changed it to a different formation.
Then, it was an edge blitz that caused the Rivers' fumble, if I am not mistaken. Like coffeedrinker called it, a delayed edge blitz later happened.
Great game plan by Pagano and his DC.
There are zero plays for 2nd and 40, no matter what our resident genius thinks....
But if you try to come up with the first, here's a sample of what could go wrong....
-- Catch and fumble and the D recovers.
-- Sack and a possible fumble....
-- Or, just a sack and no fumble and worse field position.
There's lots that could go wrong, and the odds are tiny of anything going right. You're just trying to get back some of the yardage to help your punt team and the field position battle.
It appears that Haeg is the real deal. He seems much better suited for Guard. When we ran the ball in the first half, a lot of it was to his side of the line. It looks like we are finally getting the line settled...we just need to focus on Right Tackle. Reitz plays better when he is surrounded by talent. I'm not sold on Clark yet...time will tell.
