The Los Angeles Chargers made their debut in their new city last Sunday and they likely left nothing but a bad taste in the mouths of fans in attendance and those watching on TV.
Needless to say, the team needs to put forth a much better performance in its next preseason game against the New Orleans Saints.
It was refreshing to see the starters march right down the field and get seven points against the Seattle Seahawks’ No. 1 defense, but after that, it was plain ugly. The NFL is a league in which a good team has solid depth, and no team needs depth more than the injury-plagued Chargers.
With that being said, there are a number of players who need to seize their opportunity and prove that they not only belong in the NFL, but that they’ll be ready to produce when called upon. Time to do so is running thin for many of these guys.
In this slideshow, we are going to talk about five players who need to have a much better game when the Chargers play the Saints, starting with an undrafted wide receiver who many fans had high hopes for.
