Philip Rivers lines up in a shotgun formation. The clock is ticking away Russell Okung Jerseys 2019 , seconds rapidly declining on the scoreboard inside of Century Link Stadium as the Seattle Seahawks prepare to make a crucial third-down stop. Up by a touchdown, Seahawks cornerback Tre Flowers is matched up in man coverage on the outside as Chargers wide receiver Tyrell Williams comes up to the line of scrimmage set. As the clock strikes zero, Rivers call for the ball just in time. Williams comes out of his break and aims right for the end zone. Closing the cushion on Flowers, the fourth-year receiver runs a perfect comeback route towards the pylon. Rivers sees the opportunity and delivers a low throw towards Williams’ back shoulder, placing it only where the 26-year-old receiver can make the grab. As he begins to fall, Williams opens his arms, finds the ball and secures it as his knee touches the turf. There’s no denying it. It’s a touchdown and the home of the 12th man is silent. Williams knows it, Rivers knows it, the stadium knows it. It’s perfect strike from the veteran quarterback to his emerging receiver. As he stands to celebrate, Williams places his hands towards his helmet and listens to the sounds of boos and vulgar language coming his way. He doesn’t care; he’s heard worse before. In the loudest stadium across the NFL, Williams has quieted the crowd to a near whisper.“I was just trying to see if I could hear them still,” Williams said. “That kind of quieted them down a bit.”But perhaps he’s calling out to more than just those inside of Century Link. Maybe he’s calling those who haven’t gotten on board his bandwagon, yet.He’s calling out to the critics. Those in the press box who write poorly of him. Those who have called him a “bust” or “basket case” or even a “trick” for a Halloween article. With his fifth touchdown catch of the season, the sounds of negativity are long gone. Only those praising his name will be able to stand in his presence.Let’s call it what it is, Williams has silenced the critics and proven to the NFL community that he indeed is a talented receiver that can have a luxurious career in this league. “I think we just know we have confidence in the plays that we can make White Virgil Green Jerseys ,” Williams said via Chargers.com. “I think we got the coverage we wanted and it’s just up to us to make those plays when we have the opportunity.. We got the confidence in our receivers and in our room, so we know everyone else is going to take care of their job so from there it’s easy.” It’s not just Williams who has been on a tear this past eight weeks of the season. All three Chargers receivers have been coming into their own element and playing a crucial part during Rivers’ hot streak this season. Second-year wide receiver Mike Williams is looking more and more like the first-round selection Chargers general manager Tom Telesco drafted back in 2017. The 6-4, 220 pound receiver might have only had one catch during the team’s 25-19 victory over the Seahawks, but it was a big one. Running a smooth comeback route against man coverage, the former Clemson star used his massive frame to overpower defenders and bully his way into the end zone for a 30-yard touchdown. Keenan Allen is still Rivers’ go-to target and has been one of the better possession receivers in the league this year. Finishing his day with six receptions for 124 yards, the fifth-year receiver now has collected 47 catches for 630 yards and is averaging 13.4 yards per catch. He currently ranks in the top 25 among all active pass catchers in both receptions and receiving yards.But then there’s Williams. The deep threat. The boundary guy. The guy who can do it all. While his numbers might not be as high as the likes of Allen and the younger Williams, No.16 has been a reliable target since Week 4 of the NFL season and isn’t slowing down. Following a sluggish start of just seven receptions for 70 yards, the Western Oregon product might be one of the more consistent options in for the Bolts offense. During the team’s five-game win streak, Williams has collected 15 receptions for 373 yards and five total touchdowns.Williams is currently averaging 20.5 yards per catch, ranking third among all active receivers. According to NextGen Stats, he is averaging 16 yards per reception through the air, a substantial number for a team’s deep threat. He currently ranks 6th in that category as well. His teammates are starting to notice as well. “We had two touchdown passes on contested plays,” Rivers said. “Tyrell did of a heck of a job. I was afraid he wasn’t going to have enough room, but he stayed in bounds.”So here they are, the Chargers are at 6-2 and are becoming one of the better teams in the AFC. With the offense clicking on all cylinders Virgil Green Jerseys 2019 , it will be hard for teams to matchup every week and stop the aerial attack that Chargers coach Anthony Lynn and offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt have in place. Each receiver has carved out a significant role in Rivers game plan. The young Williams is a red zone boundary target who will see his number called in contested catches. Allen will continue his approach as the team’s possession receiver, setting the Bolts up to score. As for Williams, he has become the wild card of the offense. While primarily the deep threat, Williams has shown the ability to be a reliable target in the red zone as well as an option on the short route to help keep drives alive. The Chargers offense could be one of the best in football down the stretch as they prepare for a chance to dethrone the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West. The method should be simple; wait patiently, find Williams and let him do the rest. So for all those who doubted him, time to eat your words. It’s safe to say that No.16 is truly emerging as No.1 in the Chargers nation hearts. Just take the L and wish him nothing but the best. He’s earned it.

On throws within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage, Grier was off target only 5.5% of the time – the best such figure in all of college football. As much I’ve hammered home downfield throws mattering most, that sort of pinpoint placement underneath is still a valuable skill. And it’s not like he couldn’t throw the ball down the field.2019 NFL Draft fixes for all 32 NFL teams - PFF Analysis TeamScharping performed well over the course of his college career and earned pass-blocking grades above 87.0 every season. During his entire career with the Huskies, he only allowed five sacks, and four of those sacks came in his freshman year. With players like Cody Ford and Andre Dillard likely getting taken ahead of Pick 28, the Chargers could get a good consolation in Scharping.NFL draft predictions for all 32 teams: Who's trading up, who's taking a QB and more - ESPNThe Bolts have only three defensive tackles on the roster -- Brandon Mebane White Mike Pouncey Jerseys , Justin Jones and T.Y. McGill -- so it should be a position they target early in the draft. They need an interior pass-rusher with a profile similar to Chris Jones of the Kansas City Chiefs -- a player who can push the pocket, helping talented edge rushers Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram get to the quarterback more consistently.NFL GM Power Rankings: John Dorsey, Kevin Colbert rank top 5 - Gregg RosenthalFew general managers have bigger hits spread across the draft ( Joey Bosa, No. 3 overall; Derwin James, No. 17; Keenan Allen, No. 76; Desmond King, No. 151) and free agency ( Casey Hayward, Russell Okung) than Telesco. Then again, the organization has underperformed, considering Philip Rivers' Hall of Fame-level of play. The team's lines remain unfinished on both sides of the ball.Three reasons to be optimistic about the Los Angeles Chargers - John WozniakRivers has broken passing records for a quarterback not to have appeared in a Super Bowl. Anthony Lynn has done a great job at coaching the Chargers into a competitive team. 2019 is going to be tough, but Rivers and the Chargers’ senior squad members have what it takes to reach the playoffs. Topping the AFC West should be priority number one.Social Media Information:BFTB Facebook Page: Click here to like our pageBFTB Twitter: Follow @BFTB_ChargersThe Lightning Round Twitter: Follow @Lightning_RoundThe Lightning Round Facebook: Click here to like our pageBFTB Manager: Richard Wade: Follow @RichardWade
