Not only do the San Diego Super Chargers have an elite offense, but now it seems as if they also have an elite DEFENSE.
Imagine this team with the addition of Melvin Ingram, Jeremiah Attaochu, and Shareece Wright.
The addition of Brandon Flowers and Jason Verrett is huge. Both are under 5’10, yet they make it work. And unlike teams such as the Atlanta Falcons, the secondary is assisted with the great pass rush that the Chargers hold dearly. Dwight Freeney leads the league in hurries, and the duo Corey Liuget/Sean Lissemore is starting to become scary.
The even more scary thing is: they aren’t done yet

Imagine the team when Melvin Ingram, Jeremiah Attaochu, and Shareece Wright comes back. Ingram and Attaochu will add another dimension, another level of pass rushing. And Shareece brings that physical play on the outside which allows Verrett to move to the inside to deal with players like Wes Welker in the future.
This is scary, almost frightening. A banged up Chargers D just shut down an NFL team (New York Jets), and a few of their key players weren’t even in the game.
High expectations for this team is an understatement. By now, our goal is a Super Bowl and anything short of a ring is disappointing.
