Chargers radio analyst Daniel Jeremiah and Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com previewed this Sunday’s game in London on the latest episode of Chargers Weekly, the official podcast of the team.
Highlights from each interview are below.
Jeremiah on cornerback Desmond King’s recent play:
“He’s been awesome. I mean, the last couple weeks he’s just really been a huge lift to the team, and with the special teams now a couple weeks going. (He’s) solidified that spot (as a punt returner) and, to me, you look at a guy that’s making great decisions on when to field the ball. He gets north and south. There’s not a lot of backtracking, running east and west. He gets positive yards and he breaks tackles.”
Jeremiah on the Chargers’ tight ends:
“Really all three guys have played a pivitol role for this team. Virgil Green doing it both as a receiver and as a blocker. (Sean) Culkin’s been outstanding. (They) use him some as the ‘F,’ as the fullback; use him some at the point of attack. He’s been great in the run game and then (Antonio) Gates is Gates. He’s going to catch anything that comes his way. (Tight end) has not been a weakness at all.”
Wyatt on the Titans’ challenge in slowing Los Angeles’ offense:
“(Melvin) Gordon is a beast and certainly hurts you in so many different ways. The Titans have not been as sound as they needed to be stopping the run. I think that’s got to be (the) number one point of emphasis is getting the run defense fixed where you’re able to shut teams down. This team’s been good against the run in past years. It hasn’t been very good against the run this year. So, that has to happen but with that said, Philip Rivers is playing great football right now. He can pick you apart. (Tennessee’s) got to find a way to get both aspects of that defense ready to go on Sunday and you got to find a way create pressure.”
