Alexander Rewards Coach Right Away
Apparently, Chargers head coach Norv Turner knew what he was doing when he decided to start wide receiver Danario Alexander over Robert Meachem against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Alexander rewarded his head coach by turning a short slant into an 80-yard touchdown pass on the third play from scrimmage to give the Chargers a 7-0 lead..
On a third down-and-10, Rivers found Alexander for what looked to be a first down. As the Tampa Bay secondary attempted to swing Alexander to the ground, he kept his balance and raced for his first touchdown as a member of the Chargers.
