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.
