Stupar bulldozed his man and knocked Gordon for a loss.
I don't recall seeing him ever out of position and he definitely played with authority.

I think stupar is on something. He seems very high strung all the time. Hope he keeps it up!

Re: Yesterdays win - some observations

If Nate Stupar was with us last year when we drafted SA & couldn't beat him out of the spot why now ???....Stupar did play well I would just find this organization VERY incompetent if they cant get SA on the field yes he hasn't looked the best but you could say that for a handful of players....I really really really want a top notch LB & DL coach because that's ridiculous a player doesn't just get "worse" Just all of a sudden cant comprehend any other pos outside of MLB? that's tough....& If so WHY DRAFT HIM? to not play the "ONLY" position he knows

- I dont understand why we called 3 straight runs on the drive where Michael Thomas scored.... At that point we needed all the clock we could save.

-- Is Michael Thomas our new Colston?

Stupar wasn't with us last year.

I know a lot of people were high on Anthony last year, but I was maybe his biggest detractor on here. He had the tackles on the stat sheet, but it seemed like on a lot of big plays he was consistently one who was getting beat. He has speed, so at times he would flash a nice play that looked explosive. I just didn't see near enough to predict a star out of him.

That said, I hadn't given up on him after one year. I just wasn't on board with the hype. And now that he's become invisible, I'm wondering if he didn't blow more assignments than I, or anyone else, knew about. It's easy to see when a guy makes an obvious mistake, but he must be pretty bad at diagnosing plays and communicating. I can only assume that, because otherwise you would think they would have him out there taking his lumps and learning.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: Yesterdays win - some observations

Noticed we were sending an extra man to get some kinda pass rush and this just confirmed what I saw...

Our pass defenders are better athletes than most and I was glad to see us take advantage with man-man as well...

Rivers loves to throw deep, he doesn't throw many check downs. So therefore he has to hold the ball longer to wait for his receivers, going man coverage and sending extra blitzers was the best thing we could have done in the second half.

I guess it is a new thing for us, we made adjustments on defense in the 2nd half? WTH? The sky must be falling.

No matter how we won what matters is that we won. Being 1-3 is better than 0-4.
