On Wednesdays, Kansas City Chiefs
head coach Todd Haley turns his attention to the next opponent in his press conference and this week that's the San Diego Chargers
. Haley talked about the Chargers offense and the challenges it presents.
: "We've got our work cut out for us with this San Diego team. I think they're a talented, talented football team, much like I've talked about them in the past. They've got a multi-dimensional offense. You just watch the tape and you watch them play the Patriots
at New England and really, they moved the ball at will throughout the day and really did some things to shoot themselves in the foot that probably ultimately cost them."
QB Philip Rivers
: "Their quarterback [is] one of the best in the business in Philip Rivers."
RB Ryan Mathews: "This running back is really developing into what we kind of thought he was going to be."
TE Antonio Gates: "The tight end, [Antonio] Gates, is a full-time job and up front, they do a real good job of protecting their quarterback."
Haley says the Chiefs defense will have to bring their "A" game to compete this week. That's an understatement. The Chiefs have lost 31-0 and 43-14 in the last two years in San Diego. Plus, they've given up 30 or more points in their last four games that count, including forty-plus in two games this year.
