Antonio Gates will give Chargers offense more life


Antonio Gates will be back on the field for the San Diego Chargers and he should give this offense another boost forward. Philip Rivers already leads the league in passing yards and he gets his top weapon back on the field.

With Gates back on the field, he will be the top target on 3rd down situations and should help this team move the chains on those situations. Gates will also be a top target in the red zone. With his return to action, the team might limit him in the first few games. He could come into the game during the 3rd down and red zone situations.

When Philip starts rolling with the hurry up offense, having Gates will be clutch. He knows this offense and he has a relationship with Philip that nobody else on the team has. With Gates, Danny Woodhead, Stevie Johnson and Keenan Allen available on offense during 3rd downs, this team should be able to move the ball down the field. The offensive line just needs to give Philip Rivers the time to get the ball out to these guys.

This offense will get better. The offensive line should be better. The one time that they played decently was when 3 of the starters were sitting on the sideline. We will see what changes need to be made up front with those guys. We need production from that unit in a bad way.
