Top Ten Defensive Performances of 2017:

#7 Tre Boston @JAX Wk. 10 #7.) Tre Boston v. Jacksonville - 6 tackles http://www.chargersfootballauthentics.c … -authentic , 2 interceptions, 3 passes defendedIn just one year with the Los Angeles Chargers, Tre Boston had a significant, yet quiet, impact on the defense. After all, how many people knew he actually led the team in interceptions this past season? I sure as hell wouldn’t have guessed that. In the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars following the team’s week nine bye, Boston recorded a pair of interceptions, both coming within the final two minutes of play. Each interception was pivotal as the Bolts were up 17-14 at the time of each pick.However, and it still kills me inside to this day, the Chargers somehow couldn’t find a way to ice the game even with Boston’s spectacular late-game heroics.After the first interception, Philip Rivers attempted to run the play clock all the way down before hiking it at the last second. He was a fraction of a second off and he was called for a delay of game penalty. On the next snap, rookie RB Austin Ekeler was stuffed on a hand-off and proceeded to fumble the ball away, giving the Jaguars life once more.On the ensuing drive, Jags QB Blake Bortles threw another ill-advised interception into the arms of Boston, one that he took out of bounds but not before gloating a little beforehand.In the end Youth Tyrell Williams Jersey , Rivers and co. could not will their way to a first-down and inevitably punted the ball right back to the Jags with 58 seconds remaining. We all know how the rest of this game went so there is no need to re-hash one of the worst losses of the year.Regardless,we have to tip our caps to #33 who had himself a heck of a game and did just about everything he could to keep the Chargers alive in this one but it just wasn’t meant to be.Has Mike Williams finally arrived? In the staff’s slack chat, while the guys were going back-and-forth on whether the team will actually sign TE Antonio Gates prior to the season opener, our very own Jamie Hoyle asked a fairly thought-provoking question:“What were everyone’s impressions of Mike Williams in the preseason? Has he arrived? Or are you taking more of a wait-and-see approach?”This got the guys thinking and we all had enough to say about the subject that we might as well throw it into a roundtable and see what the rest of you guys think, as well.So here we go. Has Mike Williams shown enough in the preseason to qualify as “arrived” or is it all meaningless until the regular season?Jamie Hoyle: No, he hasn’t arrived yet. Don’t get me wrong, I think he looked good in spurts and has clearly made some positive strides, but he did all of his preseason damage against second and third team corners fighting for jobs. He hasn’t even managed to leapfrog Travis Benjamin or Tyrell Williams on the depth chart yet. Call me crazy, but a preseason touchdown against Akeem Grant, who probably won’t make Seattle’s 53-man roster, just doesn’t do anything for me. I’m definitely taking a wait-and-see approach before declaring Mike has arrived.Louis Gorini: I’m definitely taking a wait-and-see approach. He hasn’t really connected with Rivers during game action, he hasn’t really been with the ones, either. But I don’t think he’s a bust like White has been for the Bears.Ruben Gonzalez: I think he has arrived. He’s got that confidence he was missing last year. That has everything to do with him being healthy and trusting his body. With Keenan on the other side, and Tyrell in the mix, he may not see as many targets Womens Austin Ekeler Jersey , but you can bet that he will be Phillip’s first look anywhere inside of the 20 yd line.Max Schultz: For me, he’s merely elevated himself from bust to sometime contributor. I can’t see why anybody would say he’s showing his draft potential, yet.Richard Wade: I tend to agree with Max. I haven’t seen anything that has me ready to count on Williams.Daniel Stebbins: I don’t feel he has arrived, not as one would reasonably expect from a 7th-overall pick. I do, however, feel he will take a major leap forward compared to last season. I’d say he has likely now become a major contributor, but for 7th overall that person should be a focal point, not just a great tool.Mike Murray: He arrived to the preseason. We will have to wait until September 9th to see if that translates to real NFL games. Everything seems to be pointing in the direction that he is going to be a superstar, but we won’t really know until it is tested in the real NFL environment. Now if we are projecting where we think he will land, I think anywhere between top 5 receiver in the league and a really good #2.Michael Peterson: I am fairly on-the-fence about Mike Williams and whether or not he has finally “arrived”. If we transplanted his performance from this preseason and moved it back a year, how would we have felt about it then? I feel fans would still be excited about his play, but with it being his sophomore campaign, I can understand why most wouldn’t be all that impressed. I think from what we have seen so far, there have been a number of traits shown that show promise and the potential to translate into the regular season but until that happens I will just take the wait-and-see approach like Hoyle and others.What do you guys think? Get in on the conversation and tell us whether or not you believe Mike Williams has finally “arrived” .
