Reviewing the Broncos Defense against the Chargers: 2nd Half Notes

Doug Pensinger

Here's my final take on the Chargers. Many times when I do these, I tweet out my reactions as I'm rewatching each play. Since I've already done most of the work, I'll include my tweets here. If you want live gameday analysis and my thoughts throughout the week--follow me on twitter!

Kayvon Webster

Target #4. Bottom of the screen, good leverage, stays with his man, just has trouble stopping and shifting momentum back when receiver stops his route. The narrative that Rivers was picking on Webster came from this sequence of four plays. Four straight targets, three receptions.

Target #5

Straight Go route by Eddie Royal. Kayvon stays with him step for step and flashes great closing speed to close the one step advantage, deflects the ball incomplete.

Target #6

This isn't even his man, he recognizes the swing pass to the RB and comes up to make a great open field tackle. (Bottom of screen).

Target #7

This is the play that broke the camel's back so to speak amongst Broncos fans. Deep completion on 3rd and long. But guess what? More to do with design than his poor play, and something that didn't get noticed or pointed out in the broadcast. Brown gets leverage through one of those patented pick plays that switches up the WR's routes.

The outside receiver comes inside and blocks Kayvon's path to his man who releases to a go route on the outside. The bigger question here should be where the hell is Mike Adams over the top? He should be there to help with this straight cover 2 shell.
