Week 1 - Post-game Thread

Herbert is a fucking boss. He puts the ball right where it needs to be.

That being said, our defense is WAY OVERRATED. Dudes were just wide ass open. And when they weren't, Herbert threw great balls, and their WRs were just tougher than our DBs.

If you want to score just keep throwing the ball against us.

Gibson looked good, but if you can't protect the ball, you can't play. 2 fumbles is unacceptable. The 2nd, being a backbreaker after a great pick by Jackson.

Juste was right on top of guys, just couldn't finish. I'm excited about him.

Re: Week 1 - Post-game Thread

The difference was QB play, Fitz and Heineke are no Herbert, in today nfl you better have a legit passer. I do think we’ll get it going and win Thursday against a very good defense in the giants. Overall it looks more of the same tho. Average team at best

I couldn’t be more disappointed in our Oline and dline play.

From the first drive on, that dame was never ours even after the lead.

The thing that is most frustrating to me is all the talk about what a great defense we have, top defensive line in the NFL - experts picking us to win today on the strength of our d performance.

Meanwhile we know - if the defensive line isn't dominant - we don't stand a chance. This team is not good enough to pick up the slack if the best part of our team isn't effective.

I'm pretty sick of all the pre-game talk. Everybody got all hyped up before the game started and for what? So we can watch our d get walked down the field on the first drive?

The announcers were all over Herbert's jock today and for good reason. Other than a good play here and there from our d-line he did whatever he wanted on the field today.

Teams know the plan now. Get the ball out quick and you will neutralize this so called "top defensive line" of the NFL. If you neutralize them we got nothing.

This..


Also I'm disappointed Rivera decided to punt instead of going for it on the last drive.

+1

The "fumble" Herbert had - that was a gift call.

The RTP call on Bosa - another gift.

We missed a call on the Gibson facemask early but the refs more than made up for it.

Scherff is a rat just like Cousins. Shouldn't have franchise tagged him even once. A 2nd time is embarrassing.

We drafted a longsnapper and gave Scherff all that money, meanwhile LB is a black hole.

I mean, that's how you neutralize any defensive line. Not every offense is going to be able to do it. I mean ours couldn't.

Re: Week 1 - Post-game Thread

Best surprises:
Special Teams. All around great start to the year
Gibson running. He did really well, minus the fumbles.
WJ3 int

Worst points:
DL pressure. Or lack thereof, I wanted more from Ionnaidis and Payne. Chase was a no show again

Fitz?? The offense had no spark with him. He didn't target McLaurin once??

Big props to Herbert, that guy was crazy.

Re: Week 1 - Post-game Thread

Did Jamin Davis even record an actual stat?

Re: Week 1 - Post-game Thread

I didn't see Jamin Davis making any plays, but I cut him slack knowing it's probably going to take him a while to get comfortable.

St. Juste is another rookie - I saw plenty of him getting beat today but it's to be expected, the last time we had a defensive rookie come out and play like a pro from the gate might've been ST.

We gifted the Chargers the ball in our own RZ, late in the game. I don't understand how much people are underestimating this. That was basically the end of the game.

This is true. I think we as a fanbase underestimated the Chargers offense for whatever reason - without realizing Herbert was very legit as a rookie last year.
