Cheap Womens Authentic Chargers Philip Rivers Jersey

What an incredible win the Chargers had over the weekend against the Buffalo Bills.
Time to move on.
With the team kicking off again in less than 72 hours, the Bolts have no choice but to move on to a pivotal game Thursday against the Dallas Cowboys. Back in the playoff hunt, the Chargers have an opportunity to narrow that gap in front of a national audience on Thanksgiving Day.
“We’re not way out of the division and not way out of the hunt,” Philip Rivers said. “That’s exciting and encouraging. It shouldn’t be hard to keep us focused on the task at hand….You have to quickly forget about that and just be fired up that we still have everything in front of us. There’s obviously no room for any more hiccups, but excited about the opportunity ahead.”
“We made a point of emphasis after the game yesterday to move on to Dallas,” stated Head Coach Anthony Lynn. “So the staff has been focused on the Cowboys.”

Knowing they had a short week to prepare, the coaching staff actually got a head start preparing for Dallas during the bye week. However, the Cowboys have played two games since then, so much work is still needed to be done.
“Just the film study, we did some of that on the bye week,” the head coach continued. “The Cowboys have played a couple games since then, so it’s catch up on the film and comparing their personnel to ours, trying to find the matchups we want. Things like that. It’s a lot of film study. That’s what it is. You don’t have time to go back and evaluate (our Bills) game. That’s a half a day. We’ll do that this following weekend.”
At the same time, Lynn admitted the Chargers’ own game plan will be tailored due to the quick turnaround.
“You have to make sure you don’t do too much on a short week like this. The plays that go on better be the ones that count because you better make sure you have enough bullets when you go out and play on Thursday night. That’s the most challenging part.”
While the players would like nothing more than to celebrate a monumental win, they agree that they have fought too hard to get back into the hunt to get complacent.
As Rivers noted, the chance to rattle off two wins in a span of five days is an opportunity they must take advantage of. Number 17 isn’t a huge believer in momentum, but admits it does play a factor when two games are this close together.
“I don’t believe in the momentum thing, but hopefully that can kind of catapult us to Thursday and then we can keep staying in that flow,” Philip Rivers said.

That’s especially the case when the team finally was able to get into a groove offensively.
“For one, it’s nice to finally score over 24 points in a game. I know we haven’t been in a season ever here through nine weeks where we didn’t score more than 24 points. That was the part that was eating me alive. You see all those opponents’ scores the last nine weeks and see us only having three wins. That’s the part offensively where I felt a little bit like we’re letting our defense down. Here they are holding them to under 24 almost every week and we’re winning three games. I think from that standpoint, it’s nice to see 54 up there. That’s not something we expect every week obviously, but I think that was good for us. We got Keenan going and Hunter got a catch early and we got going a little bit. I think that can (carry over).”
Playing in a condensed timeframe is a whole new experience for the team’s rookie class.
“That’s why I was in early today, getting my body ready to go, because usually we have today to kind of recover, and then Tuesday as well,” Austin Ekeler acknowledged. “I’m definitely still sore from the game and feeling that, and this week we’re playing on Thursday. Just make sure I do all of my recovery, get it all in to make sure I’m as ready as I can be by then.”

With eight games in the books, who do you think is the Chargers’ Most Valuable Player?

Grant Baden: Russell Okung. He came in and helped provide stability to the offensive line as a leader and player; it’s easily the Chargers’ most improved position group.

Louis Gorini: A lot of people will say Bosa is the MVP of the Chargers but I feel like Melvin Ingram has played equally if not better than Bosa. He has been so disruptive every game and I feel like he has become somewhat a leader for this defense. Also, he is the only player in the league that has 8+ sacks and 7+ tracks (on his latest CD, yo).

Matthew Stanley: It’s a hard choice between Joey Bosa and Russel Okung. Okung has come in and been more than solid at LT and been a good influence on the line as a whole. Meanwhile, Bosa is showing NO signs of a sophomore slump. Bosa is not only producing high sack numbers, but you can see his game improving week to week, and you can see his selfless, team-first play with how he attacks OL on stunts. I think at this point I’d have to say Bosa is the MVP of this team, as the defense is what has been keeping this team in games.

Mickey Peterson: My MVP has to go to the Big Bear Joey Bosa. He has been a more complete player in his second year and is the cornerstone this defense will build upon for the future. Melvin Ingram has been the flashier player but Bosa breathes life into this defense like no one else. There’s something about seeing such a young player take the reins that has really affected the rest of the defense and their play. It’s inspired. He deserves the MVP and more so far.

Jamie Sewell: I’m splitting this between Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram because they play off each other so well that I think it’d be unfair to separate them. They make each other so much better and together have been the most lethal defensive duo in the NFL this season. They’ve given the Chargers their first real pass rushing threat since I started following football, and they’re making this Chargers front a real force.

Garrett Sisti: This is tough, The two guys already mentioned Russell Okung and Joey Bosa have been great but I’m gonna go with Melvin Ingram. Though Bosa & Ingram are tied in sacks with 8.5 each I think a lot of Ingram’s plays came in bigger situations and made more of an impact. The biggest coming at the end of the Giants game with the strip sack, fumble, recovery on Eli to help seal the win.
Jamie Hoyle: I think it’s Russell Okung. He’s been the best, most reliable offensive lineman, a leader on and off the field, and a steadying influence from the second he got here. He is arguably the most important lineman in both the run game and the passing game. He has exceeded all expectations and even taken young linemen under his wing. There is no overstating his impact on this team and offense.

Kyle Posey: It’s Melvin Ingram. Bosa has been great but like Garrett said, Ingram has ended drives and games. The majority, if not all, of his sacks have come at the biggest moments of the game. Not to mention he’s been a consistent terror even if we aren’t talking about sacks. He hasn’t had a bad game yet and there hasn’t been an OL able to block him. Okung has been everything imaginable but the offense is average at best. They can’t run the ball for squat and their passing attack is inconsistent. So I wouldn’t say he brings much value, despite his great play.

Ruben J. Gonzalez: I also think that Joey Bosa has been so solid and deserves MVP consideration, but my puck so far would have to be Supa Melvin. Last year the Chargers had Bosa producing at very nearly this same level, yet the defense wasn’t close to being feared on a weekly basis. Enter this rejuvenated Ingram, ferocious and healthy, and this defense has gone to another level. For that alone, he’s my choice at MVP. (Did I mention, he finally got his 3-sack game which cements his status as elite?)
