In the second edition of Chargers Notebook, fans ask questions about Damion Square, Shane Steichen, Jaylen Watkins, and much more.
It was a win that gave all fans a breath of fresh air, as the Los Angeles Chargers won very comfortably against a true Super Bowl contender. Every team does match up differently, and every season you can see a 1-12 team match up against a 13-0 team better than anyone in the league.
It is one of the many beauties of football that any team can win any given Sunday. Yet, if you had looked at the previous games this season, and the reasoning for those losses, the Chargers should have been outmatched.
All week, this writer preached that the Chargers would beat the Green Bay Packers in the start of what would be one of the most epic comeback seasons in Chargers history. The beginning of running the table, of becoming dominant and finding the true identity of the Chargers.
Many thought that identity was set last year. I never bought it. The offense was too inconsistent at times, the defense too sweet and gentle in between the 20s. It had potential, but they didn’t have their identity yet.
Now, the team has identity rolling into November and December, when Adrian Phillips and Derwin James are close to returning and the team has reinforcements back in the lineup. Things are coming together, and Anthony Lynn has seemed to regather that fire that all fans loved.
The team you saw beat the Baltimore Ravens last year was a glimpse of the identity they can establish, and Green Bay was just another glimpse. Can they maintain it? Can they really, truly, establish the identity they are capable of? One that rivals the Legion of Boom? Only time will tell. Until then, we have questions and topics to cover.
