The Chargers Starting Lineups On Offense And Defense


Pro Football Focus posted out the starting lineups for each team in the league and here is what they posted for the San Diego Chargers. It is funny how they have Darrell Stuckey as the starting safety next to Eric Weddle. It is good to see that we don’t have any poor players starting for the team, but the offensive line still looks to be average/below average at best. These are based on all the ratings from Pro Football Focus of course. I think it is funny that Ryan Mathews is listed as above average, yet his fellow member in the backfield Philip Rivers is listed as average.

It does show that Ryan Mathews has been productive though.It has never been too much about production for Ryan. We just wonder if he can hold onto the football and if he can stay on the field. With Norv Turner as the head coach, we also wondered if he would get the snaps that he needed. I am confident that he will get more opportunities with a new coaching staff in town. The Chargers will have a couple of rookies in the starting lineup and are an injury away from having Keenan Allen start on offense as well.

I like the starting lineup. I think that the group of starters can compete. It is the depth around the roster that is a little scary. The safety spot is also a huge question mark.

    There are definitely high quality players on our roster! At least 4 on the front 7 defensively. I guess they are going on proven and not potential. The 8 and the 7 for above average and average will change after this season. my prediction…more than half will move up.

    A 4-2-5 defense? 2 linebackers?

      Nickel defense. But t is what pro football focus put together. Only Jarret Johnson is replaced for Gilchrist

      • Tyreece Kaete Sr.

        Isn’t he a LB

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

          he is… but they add an extra defensive back in the nickel defense

    Underestimated is my team of The Bolts
    Misunderstood is the the story untold
    But as it unfolds it’ll be clear to see
    The #1 team will be from SD
    With #1pick BEAST mode DJ Fluker
    Keenan Allen is the Ace running by every punter
    No need to show off just go fight win
    Let the season begin and the dual dice spin!

    And there we have it. a perfect setup based on numbers an facts, “out of context”. mathews above average? did they take into account “games played? Did they notice this is the first time PR threw for less than 4000 yards, since 2007? PR threw for 26 TD. mathews ran for “ONE” TD, and caught “ONE”.
    See i like numbers because they never lie, BUT they don’t tell the whole truth either. Now if this is a stat based or W-L, then the Charges in my estimation are an average team. Allin all, there needs to be a criteria before they can jump into things like this, or it makes no sense. Like Jaws QB rankings.

    I worry some of these rookies will get injured by the first game. Already lost Melvin. I keep thinking back to the Steelers and David DeCastro. I believe that guy has been out since the first game of last year with a torn something or another. You never even hear about him anymore – first round draft pick for them..

      You worry too much about everything. Simmer down now child.

    Rivers is beast & i think we should have started Brinkley he was nice in Pre, but never really got a chance to show us what he could really do. Or start Baker he ran a 4.3 in college & he got some power to him like Mojo, Diego lets use the abnormal or back ups
