The Chargers will face the Cardinals on Monday night in San Diego

The Cardinals are less of a smashmouth team than the Seahawks and 49ers. But their quarterback’s theory is that playing in the NFC West has toughened Arizona, the cheap michael kors bags only visiting team to win at Seattle the last two plus years.”It kind of hardens you, I guess, having to play against those teams and be in those physical games michael kors cheap and play in those environments,” Carson Palmer said Wednesday. “It’s not easy to play in Seattle. It’s not easy to play in San Francisco. And St. Louis is the same; it’s an extremely loud and hostile Michael Kors handbag outlet environment.”It just kind of gets you set and gives you a certain toughness about you. And when you get to those other division games, they just seem to be a little bit different. They may fake cheap Michael kors handbags be a little easier just because of that discount michael kors physical play you play in the NFC West.”The Chargers, who begin the season Monday night at Arizona, have talked since April about matching the physicality of NFC West teams. In training camp, Mike McCoy said building toughness was part of the increased number of consecutive padded practices.Palmer, when asked what impressed him most about the Chargers’ defense, immediately mentioned the front 7’s assertiveness. He singled out for praise Melvin Ingram, who is 17 months out from reconstructive knee surgery. at PhoenixOn the air: ESPN, channels 9/51; 105.3 FM, 1360 AM, 107.3 FM (Spanish)HeadlinesIt’s finally time for Chargers to shineAntonio Gates route running geniusAre the Chargers NFC West tough?Frank Reich set for Chargers’ first roundJohn Phillips worked back to ChargersAntonio Gates ’50 50′ to play MondayLatest San Diego Chargers headlinesAmong other Chargers the 11th cheap michael kors handbags year player mentioned was Corey Liuget, who got past 49ers starting left guard Mike Iupati several times in the the third exhibition.”It just jumps out at you,” cheap michael kors Palmer said. “You look at that San Fran replica cheap Michael Kors game, when they went to San Francisco in the preseason and really just pushed San Francisco around, and that’s not an easy team to push around.”There is grit and explosiveness within the Chargers’ defense. But I still think the Chargers may want to hog the ball again this season so their defense can play the situational game and be cheap Michael Kors less prone to wearing down. The defensive front is a bit undersized. Dwight Freeney and Jarret Johnson look like they’ll help, but at ages 34 and 33, respectively, warrant extra rest.I see the Chargers winning 24 20 in San Diego’s first game against NFC West competition since a cheap Michael Kors 34 7 win over Mike Singletary’s 49ers in 2010, when all four NFC West teams ended up with losing records.Articles Connexes:
