Postgame notes from Chargers-Dolphins

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.

    WOW! We need to continue seeing the aggresive offensive play from the Chargers. Great reaction from Rivers when he ran it himself for a touchdown. This is what I’m talking about! Chargers played smart football for the most part of the game. Still we need to score on the red zone. It seems their defense played better on the 4-3 rather than the 3-4. There is still much room for improvement.
    Great win.

    Good job chargers..it was definite must win! I still want to see a lot of improvement from the run defense. We aren’t filling holes and we aren’t penetrating like we should be. I would really also like to see that pass rush we had a couple years back. We have the same players, just not the same explosiveness. It was a great win but i’m still waiting for the real chargers to come out and play. And by the way, to everyone who is all hating toward tomlinson..give him a break! The guy is thirty years old and he has been running his butt off for the last 9 years! He wants to be 100% for when he comes back, and the dolphins AND ravens game just proved that he needs to be in there. Sproles can’t handle the full load, and we have seen year after year that Tomlinson can. Give him that chance! Tomlinson dont let me down!!!!
