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 didn’t play against super elite competition, but he did his job and helped pop a few big Austin Ekeler runs throughout the day.
This offensive is far and away a better product than it’s been in some time and I want to make sure we’re not taking it for granted in the very first year that this unit is together. Let’s stop and smell the roses while we can.
Now I’ll throw this to you all. Who do you all think deserves some praise after their performance on Sunday?
And now for today’s links.
