Q: My boy and I keep debating who is the very best tackler on the Chargers. I say Melvin Ingram and he states Derwin James. Settle this, Rick! – Jonas McFadden
A: Man, it is tough to reply this question with out understanding more context. Are we chatting about tackling in open up room? Taking down the quarterback? The toughest-hitting tackler? Those are just a several of the situations that might alter my choose. There are several guys I want to point out, but in general, I have to go with your buddy and say Derwin James. After all, he led the crew in tackles and turned the first rookie in franchise historical past to surpass the file of at the very least 100. He is fantastic in the open up field, can seriously lay the lumber and wrap up with the very best of them. One deal with in specific stands out, and that arrived in the 7 days 15 comeback thriller above the Kansas City Chiefs. The Bolts desperately wanted a prevent, and he had to bring down the strong 6-5, 260-pound Travis Kelce. Well, he did just that, tackling the limited conclude just shy of the sticks with out giving up an inch to drive the Chiefs to punt. So, though there are so numerous other individuals I want to point out, together with Joey Bosa and Adrian Phillips to title a several, I have to go with the All-Pro protection.
