yeah man - were going to need to bring the blitz even moreso against rivers than we did against Orton... much more, that game was too close!
Im going to come out and say that i expect to see an envigorated, fired up run defense after what happened to them last week against Oakland. Bottom line is that Croyle is going to have to really step up and establish a strong pass effort off the bat to rout the chargers 1D efforts on Defense (run defense and BLITZes!) - Im very hopeful that weve got some plays designed thrown into the mix to handle this with dumps, draws and screens or else we could possibly be facing a bit of humiliation.
ST hasnt really done anything fantastic (thats counted) since the 1st week against SD - we may need them to come up big again this weekend.
Alas - with all the trash being talked about Croyle being 0-9 as a starter for the Chiefs, hes playing a bit with a different deck this time so those stats are a bit irrelevant. If he can escape and manage the blitz, i think Croyles going to come out surprising and perhaps even stunning a lot of SD fans. He hasnt gotten really enough cycles to establish any 'favorites' for receivers, hell be gunning for whomever is open.
Anyway im jazzed up, cant wait to watch!
