    Chargers McNeill struggling to protect Rivers
    There are not too many people who have watched Chargers games this season and not wondered, "What the heck is the matter with Marcus McNeill?" First off, the Chargers' left tackle is not having as bad a year as many think. But he is not the Pro Bowl phenom he was in his rookie season. "He's struggling," General Manager A.J. Smith said this week. "But not each and every game, and not the entire game. But he's been having trouble in a couple games with outstanding pass rushers." By the count of STATS Inc., McNeill has allowed 9½ sacks this season compared to five in 2006. By the Chargers' count, McNeill allowed two sacks in 2006 and six this season. -- San Diego Union-Tribune

    How the hell do you give up half a sack anyways? Someone else on the line screwed up just as bad as you did so the QB got sandwiched?

    No doubt the discrepency between Stats Inc. and the Chargers is the deduction for Philip Rivers' boneheaded play.
