The San Diego Chargers have a tough task in front of them this weekend. Here are a few players that you should keep your eyes on during the game. I think that a few of these guys can step up and make some big things happen for us this weekend.

Danny Woodhead

The Eagles are going to try and put up some points and do it fast. They will be moving at light speed and if the Chargers fall into that trap and try to match their tempo, a player that could see a lot of action and make some plays in the passing game is RB Danny Woodhead. He has that burst that can get past defenders and he has that wiggle to make plays in the open field. He is someone to keep our eyes on. I hope he goes nuts.

Dwight Freeney

The Eagles are going to invite his quick jump off of the line of scrimmage. He will need to be disciplined because the Eagles will try to get him out of position in the run game. If he comes up the field too far, the run game is wide open for Lesean McCoy. Mike Vick may also try and read off of him before he takes off for his scrambles. He still will be a key player in stopping Mike Vick and that passing attack.

Philip Rivers

He is the key to this game for the Chargers. If he doesn’t play well in the game, then we are going to get blown the crap out. If he plays like he was Philip Rivers of the past, then we will have a chance at winning. He has gotta go HAM though. (HAM, Hard As A Mutha…)

Eric Weddle

I expect him to be brought up to the line of scrimmage even more in this game to stop the run game. He really didn’t stand out last week. We need one of our best players to stand out and make some of those game changing plays. We need Weddle.
