Sunday night, the Los Angeles Chargers and Seattle Seahawks, the only two teams yet to play this preseason, will meet at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

It will be the first time Chargers fans get a look at their team inside their new, smaller venue. This thread will serve as a forum for fans to talk about the game and all of its ups and downs.

What do you want to see tonight? Which player or players are you most excited to see take the field?

It’s likely that we’ll only see the starters for a series or two as this will turn into a showcase for players on the fringe of making the roster and rookies participating in an NFL game for the first time.

It will also be the first time Anthony Lynn will take the sidelines as the Chargers’ head coach.

As Lynn told Eric D. Williams of, he wants to see some players stand out from the pack tonight.

“We’re just looking for guys to help make our decision easier. We want guys to go out there and make plays and stand out. You always find a couple in the preseason that change your mind.”

Several players should get that opportunity.

Tight ends Jeff Cumberland and Sean McGrath have both been slowed up by injuries this week, which could open the door for a guy like undrafted rookie Sean Culkin.

Another undrafted rookie, Michael Davis, has been terrific in training camp. This could be his chance to show a much larger audience what he is capable of doing.

Then there’s third-string quarterback Cardale Jones, who could show a new fanbase that he could be the quarterback of the future.

There are many, many more. But we’ll leave those players and stories for you guys to point out. So feel free to get the conversation going in the comment section below.
