Quentin Jammer and Chargers Have Tough Group Of Receivers to Face in 2012


Quentin Jammer had a tough time covering receivers last season. Part of it was because the guys up front were not able to get any pressure on the quarterbacks at all and the other reason was because Jammer had a bad season.

Was it because of age and a decline of skills? Or was he distracted with some off the field issues? Or was it just because we didn’t have a pass rush for him?

We should learn a few things this season with all the talent that he will have to face. Check out this group of receivers he will be lining up across:

Player Team Rec Yds Avg TD
Steve Smith CAR 79 1394 17.6 7
Roddy White ATL 100 1296 13.0 8
Mike Wallace PIT 72 1193 16.6 8
Dwayne Bowe KC 81 1159 14.3 5
Marques Colston NO 80 1143 14.3 8
Antonio Brown PIT 69 1108 16.1 2
Vincent Jackson TB 60 1106 18.4 9
A.J. Green CIN 65 1057 16.3 7

And that list does not include Julio Jones and Kenny Britt.

Jammer better be prepared! He has a tough task at hand and we will be depending on him to slow these guys down. He will need a help from his friends too.

Can Jammer slow these guys down? Has he lost a step?

    As long as our pass rush and linebacker core is solid we have no worries! Quinton Jammer always does his job just fine!

       @Chargertom he will definitely need some help up front and behind him in the secondary… hope we fill those holes in the draft

    That’s why they should draft trumaine Johnson in the secound or third if he drops to us. He’d be a great pick for Gilchrist and him backing jammer and Cason.
