Bald Prediction No. 3:

Chargers defense will become top five. 

REALITY CHECK:  Bolts defense last season ranked only eighth in PPG (Points Per Game) and ninth in total YPG (Yards Per Game). However, the Chargers 2019 defense can soar higher, if…

  • If Joey Bosa can stay fully healthy.  #angrygrizzly.
  • If the linebackers squad can stay off injured reserve:  the team needs a healthy Kyzir (Zesh) White, armored bear Denzel Perryman, flashing rookie linebacker Drue Tranquill, and veteran warrior Thomas Davis.  Because these hounds can hunt.
  •  If rookie defensive lineman Jerry Tillery and rookie safety Nassir Adderly are playing regular downs, even starting by early in the season, and staying off injured reserve.
  •  If Isaac Rochell and Justin Jones level up. And they will.

Enough with the “If”s,  here are certainties:

  • Derwin James will come back from injury better than before (if that’s physically possible).
  • Forrest Lamp will let his genie out. Tillery will get noticed nationally, benefitting from opponents’ preoccupation with twin dragons Bosa and the monstrous Melvin Ingram.
  • Adderley will become a starter before the half-way season mark, pushing the promising strong safety Rayshawn Jenkins. See Jenkins’ insane vertical leap here.
