Chargers best and worst PFF grades vs. the Cowboys

Chargers best and worst PFF grades vs. the Cowboys

Photo by Harry How/ Which Bolts stepped up when needed and which ones cracked under the pressure? The Chargers’ efforts against the Cowboys were notable. Players like Derwin James, Mike Williams, and Austin Ekeler fought like hell to keep the game close while enduring the numerous penalties committed by the rest of the team. Unsurprisingly, those players named above were graded out as some of the best from their week two loss. At the same time, some of the team’s players that must be relied upon to help them turn this thing around didn’t shine all that brightly,...

Chargers Daily Links: Which player surprised you the most against the Cowboys?

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ Your source for all Chargers and NFL news from around the web. Good morning, Chargers fans! For today’s discussion, I want to hear about which player(s) from this past Sunday surprised you the most. Which ones played better than you expected? Which players deserve some praise regardless of the loss? I always want to show some to the offensive linemen when I can so I’m going to give a nod to Matt Feiler who rebounded from a poor outing against Washington as a pass blocker (16.5 grade via PFF) to lead the team in that category with a 79.6. He...

Chargers Week 3 “Surge or Static?”: Williams dominants again in first loss of 2021

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports Make it two scores in as many games for Williams to begin the season. If you take away the plethora of penalties, there were still a number of notable performances by Chargers players from their week two tilt with the Cowboys. Unfortunately, “notable” means both good and bad in this situation. The Chargers had several players step up in moments where a big play needed to be made. On either side of the ball. At the same time, two of the team’s best players did not have the type of outing they were both expected to have against a...

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Who played and how often vs the Cowboys The Los Angeles Chargers lost their home opener, and first game in their new home in front of fans, to the Dallas Cowboys yesterday. So, lets take a look at who was on the field to contribute in the losing effort. Offense All 5 of the offensive line starters fort he Los Angeles Chargers this week played 100% of the snaps. The continuity there is nice, but the level of play from Storm Norton specifically leaves a lot to be desired. At RB the snaps shifted slightly heavier towards Austin...

Chargers come out with middling game grade in loss to Cowboys

Chargers come out with middling game grade in loss to Cowboys

Photo by Harry How/ Could’ve been a lot worse, to be honest. One week after finishing the game against Washington with the ball in their hands, the Chargers found themselves on the other side of the coin this past Sunday against the Cowboys. With a little under four minutes to play, Dak Prescott and the Dallas offense put together an 11-play drive that gave them the opportunity to end the game as time expired. A 56-yarder is no layup, but to Greg Zuerlein, it might as well have been. The Chargers’ play on the field wasn’t nearly as bad as it may have seemed,...

Chargers can’t overcome penalties, refs in 20-17 loss to Cowboys

Photo by Harry How/ I don’t think Chargers fans will forget this game anytime soon. In a stadium filled with blue and gold, it may be a tough task to see every flag thrown by the referees. But on Sunday afternoon, the field might as well have been painted yellow with the amount of penalties committed by both teams playing inside SoFi Stadium. In total, 20 penalties were committed. Of those 20, 12 were against the Chargers. Things truly came to a head in the second quarter when the Bolts were flagged eight times in an incredibly dysfunctional period. All day the long,...

Chargers vs. Cowboys Week 2 Second Half Game Thread

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports Time to finish strong! That first half left a pretty bad taste in my mouth and I’m sure it’s not much different for all of you. The Chargers committed nine penalties in the first half. Eight of those came in the second quarter. Both Keenan Allen and Corey Linsley have two penalties, apiece. The Chargers are incredibly lucky to have gotten that roughing the kicker penalty and unfortunately they weren’t able to turn the drive into points. Vizcaino missed the attempt and Trey Pipkins tore a man’s facemask off. It cannot get much worse...

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports Running back Joshua Kelley is inactive for another week. There aren’t many surprised on this week’s list of inactives against the Cowboys. The players who will not suit up for the Chargers today are quarterback Easton Stick, cornerback Chris Harris Jr., running back Joshua Kelley, offensive guard Michael Schofield, tight end Tre’ McKitty, and defensive tackle Justin Jones. Harris did not practice all week with an apparent shoulder injury while Justin Jones was originally listed as doubtful with a calf injury on the team’s final...
