San Diego Chargers: Scat Receivers

San Diego Chargers receivers are big, tall, physical and EASILY TACKLED IN THE OPEN FIELD! Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd are great at running routes and making grabs 15 yards down the field, but as soon as the ball is in their hands, the defense is going to bring them down.

The Bolts have brought in a different mold for their receivers this off-season. Philip Rivers called them “scat-receivers” in a recent interview. These receivers have speed, speed and more speed! They have the ability to make big things happen with short passes and have the wiggle to make defenders miss them in the open field.  Receivers like Robert Meachem, Eddie Royal and Roscoe Parrish!

Robert Meachem was brought in from New Orleans and will get to see his first action as a full-time starter since joining league. In New Orleans, he was mainly used to stretch the field for the deep routes. He will see plenty of those routes in Norval’s offense and that will open up the field for our new slot receiver. He will also be asked to make things happen with his quickness on shorter passes.

Eddie Royal will step in at the slot and the Bolt Nation already knows too much about Fast Eddie. He burned us for punt returns and kick returns while he was wearing the blue and orange in Denver and now we get to see that speed on our offense. Get ready to see Fast Eddie on some reverses and screen passes. He will add a new dynamic to the offense.

Roscoe Parrish is another one of  those “scat receivers” that could get some action on the offense. If he makes the roster, he will likely be the 5th receiver on the depth chart. The Buffalo Bills did not know how to get him the ball and maybe Norval and Philip can figure out a way to use his quickness out in the open field in our offense.

There is a shift happening with the Chargers receivers. We are adding quickness and speed to the unit and it is going to be exciting to see these guys have the ball in their hands.
