Chargers-Raiders Game Night Thread

Recommended Posts

How was there no flag on that Fake Punt? Sounds like the Refs are making up rules. I never heard of that rule before.

Something about punt formation and how if you jam the kicking team's gunners, you can't know whether they have kicked or not...

That's an interesting call, so defensive backs can basically mug receivers on fake punts with no penalties? Odd.

Yea it's one of those rules that never gets used so it sounds made up, but I thought it was funny how the Commentators were actually talking about a fake right before it happened.

http://www.nfl.com/rulebook/passinterference

Whenever a team presents an apparent punting formation, defensive pass interference is not to be called for action on the end man on the line of scrimmage, or an eligible receiver behind the line of scrimmage who is aligned or in motion more than one yard outside the end man on the line.

I guess that makes sense. If the rule wasn't there, the blocking team wouldn't be able to touch the gunners, pretty much negating any chance of a return

Did SD ever get rid of their ST coordinator from last year? It seems like they're playing much better this year.

I never got the privilege to watch early NFL games (1966-) but I could Imagine they played like the Raiders are now.

They are out-muscling the Chargers

I knew that they were going to have a good day running but not this good. 125 first half rushing yards.

Who knew the Chargers would be playing so poorly?

The AFC West is possibly the most inconsistent division in football

    • Hey if he tears his ACL, they have no one to blame but themselves
    • I think it's fair to mention injuries in certain games.  We can and should always mention games where TY misses since we lose every one without him. It's just good context to have. We didn't specifically win/lose because of our injuries/opposing team's injuries, but I do think it puts context into the game. Just like a home/away game can, bad weather, penalties, etc.
    • Can you believe he is back at practice in a limited basis today. They are playing with fire.
    • Passer rating was much more reliable when the league was full of pocket passers. These days, not so much, and gets less reliable every year as we increase the number of dual threat QBs. I always look at the expanded QBR data (as well as NexGen, PFF, and FO) when trying to really compare QBs. There's really no perfect measurement out there IMO.   It's going to be very interesting to see how JB performs going forward. There's no doubt he was exceptional vs Houston, and it was a huge coming out day for him. Next week he'll play vs a very good passing defense unlike Houston (Houston is bottom 5 while Denver is top 5). Will Reich go back to a run heavy attack while not allowing JB to do much, or will he strive for balance. I love that Reich attacked Houston's weakness and had the confidence in JB to call that game plan, I'd just love to see that same confidence vs a tougher secondary.   And yes, his yards per completion have been low, but they were a bit better last week. Not sure if that is because Houston's passing D stinks in general, Houston was basically playing with 2nd, 3rd, and PS DBs, JB is getting better, or Reich's game plan simply included more deep 1st reads. Probably a mix. 
    • I was til this season I dont feel like going through 30 pages of JB is gonna be the MVP or the popular let's trade Luck when he comes back topic. both are ignorant as hell. how would you even know when I'm in here you've been a member for what 5 months??
