Default Re: Peyton versus Wade

I know it's not technically a Wade Phillips defense, but when Wade left the Chargers to take the Cowboys HC position, they replaced him with Ted Cottrell in order to maintain as much continuity as possible (Cottrell was Wade's DC when he was in Buffalo).

Cottrell lasted two years in SD, during which time they played the Colts 4 times. The Chargers won 3 of 4 - including eliminating the Colts from the playoffs in both seasons. While Peyton had 3 games where he passed for over 300 yards (one which he surpassed 400), and three games in which his passer rating was in the 90's, he also had one game in which he threw 6 interceptions (no, that's not a typo), and had a passer rating below 50.

Again, obviously Wade was gone, but I think the Charger defense those two years still had his fingerprints all over it.
