Postgame notes from Chargers-Dolphins

Posted by Joel Price on September 27, 2009 – 6:27 PM

POSTGAME NOTES
SAN DIEGO CHARGERS vs. MIAMI DOLPHINS

Qualcomm Stadium (70,000) – San Diego, California
Sunday, Sept. 27, 2009

Philip Rivers passed for 303 yards today, his second-consecutive game of more than 300 yards. Combined with his 436-yard effort last Sunday against Baltimore (739 yards) are the most by a Chargers quarterback in a two game stretch since Dan Fouts passed for 784 yards in a two-game stretch in 1985. Fouts, who was in the CBS broadcast booth at Qualcomm Stadium for both of Rivers’ games, passed for 440 yards against Seattle on Sept. 15, 1985 and 344 at Cincinnati on Sept. 22, 1985.

Vincent Jackson was the Chargers’ leading receiver today with 120 yards. It’s the second week in a row and the first time in his career that he’s recorded back-to-back 100-yard games (141 vs. Baltimore)

Eric Weddle had the first interception return for a touchdown of his career today (31 yards). It was his second career TD as he returned a fumble 86 yards for a score last year vs. Atlanta.

The Chargers had no new injuries to report. Shawne Merriman did not return to the game for the second half after re-aggravating a previous groin injury.

Chargers sign Boone, add depth to defensive line

Posted by Joel Price on September 22, 2009 – 1:42 PM

To help fill the void created when Pro Bowl defensive tackle Jamal Williams was placed on Reserve-Injured due to a tricep injury, the Chargers signed nine-year veteran Alfonso Boone to bolster depth along the defensive line.

Boone, who played under Chargers defensive coordinator Ron Rivera for three years and defensive line coach Don Johnson two years with the Chicago Bears, signed a one-year contract with San Diego.  The 6-5, 305-pound Boone has appeared in 113 games in his career with 37 starts.  He spent the last two seasons (2007-08) with the Chiefs where he started 19 games at defensive tackle.  Boone played for the Bears from 2000-06 and appeared in Super Bowl XLI with the club.  The Saginaw, Michigan native was originally a seventh-round draft choice of the Lions in 2000 out of Mt. San Antonio College.
