Before I lay into him for his uninspired effort, I do have to say this was his first game back after an injury, but that's the only excuse I can make for him.
Shaun Phillips has been the anchor of the Chargers defense for the last couple years. After the departure of Shawne Merriman, Phillips has been alone on a pass-rushing island due to AJ Smith's inability to find another pass rusher to complement him.
But in this past game against the Denver Broncos, Phillips looked more like the anchor holding the Chargers defense back. He routinely got caught over-pursuing the triple option and took various plays off.
If that wasn't bad enough, Phillips wasted no time celebrating while Quentin Jammer was making a tackle on third down in overtime.
Instead of coming in and trying to jar the ball loose, or, at the very least, making sure the player was tackled, Phillips started dancing around and celebrating.
Tell me, sir, what were you jumping around for during a tied game?
