#10: Tyrell Williams Youth Virgil Green Jersey , week 4 against the Eagles Michael Peterson started the Top 10 defensive performances yesterday. Searching through the box scores there were so many highlight performances on offense. It’s tough to narrow it down and I’m still not sure we have it correct. You won’t see Melvin Gordon against the Patriots due to an 87-yard run that was the meat and potatoes of that performance. You will not see Austin Ekeler’s 2 touchdown performance against the Jags. There were a few Hunter Henry performances we had to leave off as well just because some guys put up gaudy numbers. Against the Raiders in the first match-up Henry had 5 catches for 90 yards. He had a big drop on 3rd & 10 however when the team was driving into the red zone. What you will see is Keenan Allen early and often. Same with El Captain. He had some games later in the season that were about as good as anyone at the position this year. Tyrell Williams had some sneaky good games as well but he also was propped up statistically by a couple 75-yard bombs. Don’t get me wrong, big plays are great! Consistency matters, though.What else matters is winning. Which is another reason some of these performances might seem out of order to you. If a guy put up big numbers but it hardly contributed to a win, it’ll be low or you might not even see it. Vice versa. Tyrell’s 5 catch, 115 yard performance comes in ahead of Allen because he did it more efficiently. Allen had 5-138 but on 11 targets. Williams took 6. More importantly, Williams gave the offense a spark plug. He was timely. Allen did have the huge play in the 4th for 50 yards but his damage came when Philly was playing soft.Up until Williams caught the 75-yard touchdown midway through the 2nd quarter, the Chargers hadn’t done anything offensively. The opening drive seemed promising but was cut short by a sack fumble. Next two possessions were punts. The team takes over down 13-0 after giving up a field goal. One thing you cannot do is come out and punt for a 3rd time in a row. They didn’t have to worry about that.The Chargers had the perfect call on for the defense the Eagles were in. What appeared to be an “Invert Cover 2.” So there was no safety help and with how fast Williams is, all Rivers had to do was let the speedster run under it.The offense wasn’t able to generate points out of this next play, but it’s a 3rd & 14. You can’t help but appreciate the effort on this play. Chips the defensive end to ensure the deeper routes have time to get open. Ends up with the ball and makes a guy miss for a gain of 20 yards.To give you an idea of how the team Chargers’d this one, Branden Oliver had 2 targets before Tyrell had another target. Which, his next one went for seven yards and kept them ahead of the chains and allowed them to pick up another first down.It was an efficient day for Williams. He put the team on the scoreboard early. That kept them in it. That’s why he’s 10 on the list. Embattled first-year coach Steve Wilks emphatically said the Arizona Cardinals are not going to trade star cornerback Patrick Peterson, who at 28 years old should be in the prime of his career.Wilks' comment Monday came moments after a report via Twitter that said Peterson had asked the Cardinals to trade him by the Oct. 30 deadline."We're not trading Patrick," Wilks said. "That's out of the question."The tweet by ESPN's Adam Schefter was posted after Peterson had left the Arizona locker room following Monday's practice. The cornerback, a first-round draft pick out of LSU who is a three-time All-Pro selection and has made the Pro Bowl in each of his seven NFL seasons, usually speaks to the media on Thursdays.Wilks said he planned to talk with Peterson about the situation."Well, No. 1, I'm not going to indulge in speculation. I'm going to sit down and talk to Patrick Philip Rivers Jersey ," Wilks said. "Patrick is a captain. He's well-respected around here. He's well-respected throughout the league, and yes, are we in a difficult situation? Yeah, we are, 1-6. Nobody feels great about where we are right now."The Cardinals, tied for the worst record in the league with San Francisco, are coming off a 45-10 Thursday night home loss to Denver, a performance that Wilks called "embarrassing."The next day, Wilks fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and replaced him with quarterbacks coach Byron Leftwich.The 49ers, the only team Arizona has beaten, come to the desert for a game Sunday. The Cardinals have next week off as a bye."It's about trying to turn the corner and make things happen, so we can make sure that we get this thing on track," Wilks said. "Starting with myself, and everybody else in that locker room, that's what we need to be thinking about."Not all the problems have been confined to the offense, not by a long shot. The defense also ranks among the worst in the NFL, especially against the run.Peterson http://www.authenticlosangeleschargers.com/cheap-desmond-king-jersey , often avoided by opposing quarterbacks, was hoping to get more action in the defense brought by Wilks, the defensive coordinator at Carolina before being hired to replace the retired Bruce Arians in Arizona. But that really hasn't happened, although Peterson did get his second interception of the season against Denver.Wilks defended his defensive scheme, which has a 4-3 base but most of the time relies on a nickel package of four up front, two linebackers, two cornerbacks and three safeties.He said it has been missed assignments, not the scheme, that has led to the defense being so ineffective, particularly against the run. Arizona is dead last in the NFL in run defense at 148.3 yards per game. The Cardinals are 24th in total defense and a respectable 11th against the pass."Why hasn't it been effective against the run? Guys aren't executing, consistently doing their job," Wilks said. "That has nothing to do with scheme, nothing whatsoever, based off what teams are doing."
