The Chargers made a move yesterday to bring in a backup running back. It is not the move that a lot of people were expecting, but it was a very strong move by the Chargers.
The Chargers struggled when Ryan Mathews was not in the lineup and it showed in the playoff game against the Denver Broncos. Mathews was not healthy to end the season and he was fighting through a lot of his pain to get on the field, but he couldn’t stay on the field for the Broncos game.
Ryan Mathews still has issues of staying on the field. He did a much better job last season, but when we needed him on the field, he was not there. Adding a running back that can take the ball between the tackles will be huge for the team.
With the Broncos going all out adding to their defense, the Chargers will need to find more weapons on offense to combat the new players that they have added. We have a running game that can pound the rock. Our best defense was our ball control offense and that will keep Peyton on the sideline more. Brown and Mathews will be big for our running game.
Our running game is set. The team can still use an upgrade at wide receiver and the offense will be one of the elite in the league.
If we can at least make one side of the ball elite, we should be able to game plan with that side of the ball to win games. Bring in that receiver, whether it is in the draft or free agency.
