Elusive Danny Woodhead ignites Chargers' offense

SAN DIEGO -- Philip Rivers gave Danny Woodhead high praise when asked to describe his teammate’s ability on the field.

“He’s a football player, and you’ve heard me say that before,” Rivers said. “My dad always said the best compliment I can give someone is he’s a football player, and that’s what Danny is. He just understands.

“He doesn’t take very many big hits. He knows when to get skinny and take two extra yards. He knows when to try and make a big play. And he’s so smart on understanding how to win on certain routes.
