Offensive LineMike Harris will be the main guy that we will be staring at, but Nick Hardwick will probably be on the sideline for this game also. Do we want to see how the replacement, probably Rex Hadnot, does in the middle.

Will we be able to run the ball with this patchwork offensive line? Will Philip Rivers leave the game in one piece?

InterceptionsPhilip has averaged an interception per every 10 minutes in the preseason. He probably will be in this game for 3 quarters and the fans want to see good things happen.

Injuries2 preseason games and 2 big time injuries. 2-for-2, batting 1.000. We need to leave this game without any new people on the injury report.

That Robert Meachem ConnectionPhilip and Meach have not gotten on the same page yet and fans are trying to be patient with the situation. Meachem and Philip seemed to do some good things in practice against the Cowboys, but we want to see it in a game.

SupaMelvinCan’t stop watching this kid when he gets on the field. He just seems like a difference maker.
