Maybe the legs slowed while shaking off a plantar fascia injury last season, but the production didn’t.

The past couple of seasons the San Diego Chargers’ offensive line has been adequate at best, a far cry from the road plowing group which was in place for Ladainian Tomlinson’s stellar year in 2006. As a result the Chargers rushing attack has suffered. Tomlinson’s numbers began to prematurely dwindle, Ryan Mathews has struggled when healthy to find the gaping holes the Bolts line once created.

If you aren’t familiar with Pro Football Focus, you probably should be. The site, especially their premium stats, are a football nerd’s dream. I often get lost in their numbers for entire afternoons, mostly looking at how well or poorly Chargers players have performed in the last few years.

    This is Antonios year, this is the Chargers loaded up year. Perry/Smith LB/S , Bobby Wagner ILB, Trumaine Johnson CB , Hillman RB ,  Nate Potter T , Joe Halahuni TE ,  Tank Carter OLB , invite Kellen Moore. This is a pretty good list of how to fill the Chargers needs with everyone being available at that round, except Johnson. And who’d want a LB named Tank. Seriously Safety, ILB, CB 3rd Down RB, Tackle prospect, blocking TE, and a possible 3rd or possibly 2nd QB and the Chargers have filled some holes especially on defense.
