    Gaining Knowledge from Ex Players -- Myth or Reality (from the "What Time is it?" thread)



    The Chargers having so many former Ravens on their roster makes me nervous. Many of them played here with Joe/Cam, and know our offense very well.

    One of the reasons I sadly picked us to lose this one.

    Hopefully, I am wrong!

    Four actually, if you count Gaither that's five, they will have enough input to reveal some of our weaknesses on both sides of the ball.

    There's nothing they can reveal that the Chargers didn't already know last year.

    That's an overhyped phenomenon.

    Is that why teams like the Patriots and us go as far to sign guys to the PS that spent time with a familiar foe, then mysteriously cut them after playing them?

    Gaining Knowledge from Ex Players -- Myth or Reality (from the "What Time is it?" thread)

    Carry over from the thread since it's a worthwhile discussion and I don't want it to hijack Fred's weekly tradition ....

    I think that they are already familiar with the offense seeing as how both teams run a version of the Coryell system. I know thy can get individual tendencies from watching film, what good is having some ex players over that? Not much in this instance in my opinion.

    LOL...so they know about the "ALL GO" vertical play?

    Listen, few things are more overrated than former players playing a team...particularly when it comes to plays/game plans. Watching game film tells WAY more than a player telling a coach about plays from the previous year(s).

    If the Chargers win today, it won't be because they got some inside info...it would be because Rivers lights up our secondary and our offense shits the bed on the road like they have done 3 and half times out of 5 now.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    They know tendencies, like what Joe does in the pocket after his first read breaks down, or how Rice runs, or how Torrey, Anquan and Co. run patterns. That's all I was trying to say. But if we lose, I agree with your last point about Rivers lighting us up and offense again shitting the bed on the road.
