    Actually Ernie, i’m happy that the team is almost unrecognizable. that means things are “really” changing. This is why i don’t call my outlook of the Chargers 2013′ season optimistic. Before, some players got shuffled, the scripts were handed out to “talk things up”, and a few camp sensations were brought in, to make things look legit.

    In the end, the veterans norv liked started, and the same plays were called. regardless if players were performing, or if the plays worked. Now it seems the talk is, from the players, they really have to prove they belong on the field. Now we have a “real” HC that hired an OC to call the plays, and put together an offense that worked with the players he has. That isn’t lip service change, that is the change we as fans have been wanting. Now that we have it, i embrace it.

      I agree with nearly everything you said Arnie. I totally get why you aren’t overly optimistic about this year but everything you said is exactly why i am optimistic about this new season. I do realize it can go either way but i am fully expecting our team to be better than it was last year especially in the coaching department. The major thing i am expecting from this new era is playing like the team we are. We didn’t have an identity with Norv. No one knew what team was going to show up. What are we going to be next year? McCoy excites me and he give me hope that we will be a team that shows up to play every week. Teams and us fans will know what to expect each week (as far as a team hunger to win). No more slow starts, no more coming out flat. No more taking the foot off the gas peddle when we take the lead. No more playing down to the level of inferior teams. I want us to score and keep scoring even if its a blowout. I want to feel comfortable having a lead in the 4th qtr. I want our team to come out and smack the other teams in the mouth, like we used to 7 or so years ago. Beat teams we should beat and be competitive against the elite teams. Sorry to spew!

    As for Addae, what will set him apart from the other DB’s? Durability.
