as head coach Los Angeles Chargers Hats , the Arizona Cardinals have two victories.Both have come against the lowly San Francisco 49ers. Things get tougher from here on out. After taking this weekend off, the Cardinals play at Kansas City. The schedule also features games at the Los Angeles Chargers, Green Bay and Atlanta. And there's that final home game against the Los Angeles Rams.So wins are going to be hard to come by for a team that sputtered to a 2-6 start, topping 20 points in a game only once. So the main focus from this point forward is developing rookie quarterback Josh Rosen.To offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich, Rosen is simply "the kid.""The kid can really play," Leftwich said. "His demeanor allows him to have success. Quarterbacking in this league is hard and when things go bad this kid tends to be fine. He's OK in those situations. Like I said, he can really play and it's just my job to get him in position that he's doing the right things."Leftwich knows Rosen well. He was the quarterbacks coach before being promoted to coordinator after Mike McCoy was fired seven games into the season."I'm just trying to get him better," Leftwich said. "Our goal is to come out here and get this kid better every day in every form and fashion. There's not any specifics. I'm working on this kid the whole way, the whole way we're just trying to install the things we need to install in him so this kid could be playing 15 or 20 years."Rosen took over the worst offense in the league late in the third game of the season (a home loss to Chicago) and has held the job ever since. He didn't talk to reporters this week but praised Leftwich after Sunday's 18-15 come-from-behind win over the 49ers."The one thing I think Byron is really good with is his demeanor," Rosen said. "He's played the game, he's been in a lot of big-time situations Los Angeles Chargers Hoodie , so I think he has really good timing with a lot of his play calls, he's got really good poise. He's a steading force for us on offense."The Arizona offense sputtered for three quarters before Rosen threw two fourth-quarter touchdowns, a 13-yarder to Larry Fitzgerald and the game-winner, a 9-yarder to the back of the end zone to fellow rookie Christian Kirk, with 34 seconds to play.The Cardinals were able to get running back David Johnson into open space a little bit more than they had, and the defense shut down San Francisco's strong running game most of the afternoon.Wilks, whose coaching experience is entirely on the defensive side of the ball, likes what he's seen from Leftwich, who played nine seasons at quarterback in the NFL but is a relative newcomer to coaching."I think he's going to continue to try to be creative in his approach and really try to put the guys in a position to be successful," Wilks said.Rosen approaches the coming weeks with that even-keeled confidence even though Leftwich is his fifth coordinator in four years, counting his time at UCLA.The Cardinals also try to move on from the distraction of three-time All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson's request to be traded. He backed off the request after a meeting with team president Michael Bidwill and has two years left on his contract.Wilks called on Peterson to speak in the huddle after the San Francisco win."What was said and what was talked about last week is in the past Customized Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys ," Wilks said. "Patrick is a captain. He's a leader on this football team. Again, I want him to have a voice, and that's what he wanted to do, and I gave him that opportunity."Notes: Wilks said he expects DT Corey Peters (ankle) and RG Justin Pugh (hand) to be back next week.Los Angeles Chargers Daily Links: Bolts Claim TE Je’Ron Hamm Derwin James, rookie defenders as good as advertised in preseason debut - Eric Williams“It felt good getting out there and being able to tackle somebody else,” James said after the game. “We are always going against each other in practice, and Coach [Anthony Lynn] always says protect the team. When you go against other guys, you kind of get to lay it all out.”Kicking still an issue for Chargers? - Travis WakemanHaving already made a kick from 45 yards out earlier in the evening, Caleb Sturgis trotted out to attempt a kick from 41 yards, but sailed it left. This was just the second kick Chargers fans had seen Sturgis attempt, and he missed it. He might as well have missed the first one too www.authenticlosangeleschargers.com , honestly.NFL Nation predicts fantasy over/unders for all 32 teams - ESPNOver/under 28 passing TDs for Philip RiversEric D. Williams' prediction: Under. Rivers has thrown more than 28 touchdown passes in a single season only five times during his 15-year career. While the Chargers will lean on the passing game to move the football, at his core coach Anthony Lynn wants to run it -- and that means more touches near the red zone in the running game for Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler.Chargers Claim TE Je’Ron Hamm - Ben LevineThe 26-year-old Hamm has bounced around the NFL since going undrafted out of Louisiana-Monroe back in 2014. He had a pair of receptions for 13 yards in 2015 with the 49ers, and he’s also had stints with the Saints, Redskins, and Seahawks. He signed with Seattle back in July, and after being waived and re-signed, he was waived a second time yesterday.Social Media Information:BFTB Facebook Page: Click here to like our pageBFTB Twitter: Follow @BFTB_ChargersThe Lightning Round Twitter: Follow @Lightning_RoundThe Lightning Round Facebook: Click here to like our pageBFTB Manager: Richard Wade: Follow @RichardWade
