Los Angeles Chargers Postgame Quotes 10/31




“I loved the way we started the football game, but I don’t think we established a rhythm after that. It was a tough second quarter for us. We didn’t establish anything in the second quarter. . I felt like we did not set that pace early in the game. They had lost some guys and did a good job hiding what they were doing. We knew they were going. hide their covers and end up playing in the zone, but we just didn’t have those first-stop completions that would really put us in a good position to succeed. We didn’t have the explosions when they were available, and we just weren’t able to put them in place today. You have to give New England credit. They played well. They had a good plan. I think we had some good streaks. . I really liked the way we handled football. I felt i that we could do it, and that was a highlight for us today. But in the passing game we weren’t good enough today. We didn’t protect the smuggler well enough at all. ny drops. We didn’t play with good timing sometimes because of these things. We just have to play better in the passing game against this team, offensively, to win. Certainly the two turnovers were really important. “

On the performance of the offense:

“We had some protection issues with the acceleration of these guys. We were doing everything we could to help these guys, but what we need to do is stay out of known transmissions, do a better job of staying in. outside of those designer looks where they set up their defense on the third try to fit your protection system. That’s what we need to do a better job on the first tries, get the pace, stick to the schedule, get the explosive plays, mix in the run and the pass, move in the pocket. If we can do that, we can be a dangerous offensive football team. They have good defense. Third down is a place where you don’t want to be in the NFL. You don’t want to live like that. We just have to do a better job in the passing game. We’re capable of more and we’ll progress better. “

To avoid the third and long circumstances:

“We missed a few games today that were available. We had a second and a, a quick win. We had [WR] Keenan [Allen] open on a stick [route], scrambled, took a bag. You’re second and one and it became third and six, which became a punt. There was a lot of stuff like that in today’s plan that happened there. The drops, we had a few third downs where you create some momentum, and we couldn’t do that. There were some good things today that I liked, in terms of managing football, but it was a patchy performance. “

On the “inconsistencies” in an offensive way:

“We played good defense today. This is happening in the NFL. I’m not worried. I wish we had performed better today. We have to do a better job of coaching to get from there. ‘before. We have to do a better job playing. But, when you play against good teams, you are going to have games like this. What we have to be able to do is execute our attack better. We have to be able to maintain our offensive execution over time. You can’t just have a quick workout or two. We have to keep pace, then we’ll be better, and we’ll have a lot more production on the cheeky move. “

“I thought he did a really good job controlling the ball. In the passing game we knew they were going to play a ton of zone; line up like a man, zone of play. liked in the game -The action game is if you get the vertical stretch of the area below, then there will be controls available, which where there. There was a ton of stuff like that available in the plane. I think he did a good job of that. But that was the kind of game it was going to be. They were going to bleed a little bit in the running game, then in the passing game, they were going to try to get you out. from the deep end of the field. What you need to do is be patient and disciplined. There are plenty of yards available. That will be the formula against that defense. This is the way you have to play against them when they are set up as they were today with some of their corners being down. They were going to play the game that way. lesson. That’s what we’re going to learn, what to take when they have a situation like this. I know we will be better to move forward. “

On Herbert’s interception that was returned for a touchdown:

“It was a failure at the apartment. It was a communication problem between the two of them. It was a double elbow protection where the half back and the stretch are in the apartment out of their shots. elbow. “

“I was satisfied with our production. I thought [RB] Justin [Jones], with the 75-yard run, had trained well this week. I was really happy with it. I was thinking [RB] Austin [Ekeler] ran football well. [RB] Larry [Rountree III] did some good descents. We felt like to play the best attacking football today we were going to have to run the ball. We really wanted to run him in the red zone too. It also manifested itself a bit. We have to make sure that we keep improving in that aspect because, as you can see, when all you do is come back to the pitch, it’s hard to do it consistently in this league. To experience the game of drop-back, very few people can protect the passer. Very few people in the National Football League can protect the passer when you know they are passing. That’s the big takeaway for me from this game. “

On the Patriots’ final scoring campaign:

“I saw them running football and throwing game actions when they felt like we were in there close. We weren’t able to push back enough points to put them in a passing situation. on the last leg. There were a few tight calls but we weren’t able to get negative play to keep them out. I loved the way our defense competed today ” hui. We took a step forward as a group. I felt like we were a group. We were there for 35 minutes and 75 games, which could have been more than that. We were there. down a bunch. I really felt like we answered the call today. I’m proud of these guys for that, but at it’s in this four minute situation where we have to get a three-and-out and create a field position for our offense because even if they get a first down or two, many still nant you have lost your position on the ground. It was really a problem for us today, to maintain this position on the pitch. “

On DL Jerry Tillery’s hit on the Patriots QB Mac Jones:

“I don’t see that as a real problem in the game at all. I thought our guys were playing between the whistles all the time. There were only seven penalties in the game, so it was just a game. difficult. Both teams played well, played hard. Two very well-trained teams played today. “

On the injury status of CB Asante Samuel Jr. and Michael Davis:

“Asante is undergoing a concussion protocol. Vato had a hamstring, which he was unable to return to.”

On whether the defense performance today compares to the unit’s performance against the Ravens:

“Not at all the same, they only had 3.5 yards per carry. [Patriots RB] Brandon Bolden had a 14-yard rush under pressure that should have been pushed back. These are not good run numbers in the NFL. 39-for-140 is not a lot. That’s not what made us lose the game today. I felt like our race defense took an incredible step forward today. I thought we did very well. I thought we were really physical. Get [DL] The return of Justin Jones was important. I feel like the way we played in defense today gave us a real chance to win. “

“I saw them beat us decidedly in this phase. [Patriots WR] Gunner [Olszewski] had 20 yards per return. We have lost the vertical field position in this area. This second quarter was a good illustration of that because we stopped them in fourth position, then we had to kick him. A short field, and we got them. But, it is an objective on the ground. We didn’t cover enough today. I think we were successful today. There were six-party hold-ups, double vices there that we didn’t manage enough. When you have a double vise, the inside part of your kick guard should go down there. They are the ones who have the singles. We weren’t successful enough to win on the inside when they had the vices on the outside. It hurt us today and we got a penalty. “

“Coming to half-time. I felt like we were coming very strong on our chances because I felt like defensively we were playing very well. We returned the ball at the end of the halftime and had a great response; a fourth save down, short field, field goal. They were doing nothing at all in the passing game outside of two games. It was just really strong in the the way we were playing. I felt like we really settled down and really played our ball mark. Then, [S] Derwin [James Jr.] had the big save in the third quarter. I really felt like the games were ours to win, that’s for sure. Again, we didn’t match offense to defense, defense to offense and special teams today. We were a bit out of rhythm today in all three phases. Especially in the second half, we had to play better in the fourth quarter to win. We’ve been in seven games now, all seven have been fourth quarter games now, with the exception of the Baltimore game. When it’s all fourth quarter type games, you have to play your best during the quarter. We didn’t do it today. “

On his assessment of attacking play:

“We play to win. Our game plan was designed exactly for the look we saw of them. They are a very good defensive team there. They face a few injuries, but they are extremely well trained. There are a lot of veteran players out there. I give New England all the credit. I think they played really well today. We need to execute better. From an execution point of view, falls and protection issues really held us back. “
