Three Drink Minimum podcast #2: Chargers are going to the Super Bowl Baby!

More instant reaction and hot takes! Back for another instant reaction pod following the Chargers comfortable win. I know the final was 31-20, but the game really wasn’t close at all. You could tell it was going to be an easy victory very early on in the game. The Bills first possession ended with a sack. The Chargers scored a touchdown on their next four possessions. Here’s the audio: The only bad I really noticed from yesterday was Russell Okung and Antonio Gates. Okung was 1-on-1 for most of the day against Jerry Hughes and Hughes simply got the best of him. In the case of Gates,...

LT Russell Okung named to PFF’s Team of the Preseason

The blindside protector was recognized as one of the best during the preseason. On Monday, Pro Football Focus released their “Team of the Preseason” rosters as they highlighted the highest-graded players at every position on offense and defense. Yesterday, I highlighted the selection of WR J.J. Jones as the team’s KR/PR selection. Today, it’s one of the veterans who finds themselves given the distinction as Russell Okung was named to the list as the team’s left tackle. He graded out as an 89.4, just a hair under “elite” (90+ rating). The PFF Team of the Preseason!(via...

Forrest Lamp is in street clothes and will not play tonight

Everyone was looking forward to watching the second-year offensive lineman in live game action tonight, but Jack Wang has some bad news for us via Twitter: Forrest Lamp is in street clothes after warming up with the Chargers' backup offensive line pregame.— Jack Wang (@thejackwang) August 26, 2018 While the promising young lineman warmed up with the team before the game, he apparently did not feel ready to go, and we will now have to wait until at least game 4 of the preseason to see him. On the plus side, the offensive line with Russell Okung, Dan Feeney, Mike Pouncey, Michael...

Ranking the NFC Tackles

Ranking the NFC Tackles

On Thursday I evaluated every AFC’s starting tackle tandem and ranked them, and today I ... well, you know. The other conference. A brief synopsis on why I am doing this reads as such: I understand why you’re frustrated with Germain Ifedi and the Seahawks offensive line in general. It is very frustrating. It is more frustrating when you consider that Seattle had similar frustrations with James Carpenter, and to a lesser extent, Russell Okung. It makes it seem like a “Seattle” problem, but what I’m trying to say is that it is a football problem. The good tackles are disappearing....
