“Explosive runs” is that the sequel to “Miles and miles of little brown piles” by Chief Squat and Trot?

This explains our draft strategy
and defensive design.

High emphasis is placed on
DBs who are good tacklers.

A. Lynn on Isaac Rochelle: "He's grown, man; he's like a weed. He's stronger, faster - he just looks more mature on the field. I can't wait to see him in pads. He's going to have an impact on this team.

from 3 young players who have caught A Lynn's eye.

meh!

Chargers had good tacklers in their back 4 to 5 last year (save Boston). Trevor Williams, Desmond King, Addae, Hayward...who is the weak link there? The first two are very good, Addae is above average, & Hayward is decent.

who in the front 7 was above average last year against the run? A few were God-awful.

Bosa & Ingram were above avg. The rest of the ft 7 starters, nope. Perryman was our worst based on not playing, may have been our best when he played.

Reason to hope: Perryman may play more, WLB Brown is healthy & will be pushed by White, Nwosu at OTTO, Liuget out 4 giving Jones & Philon reps.
