Nice article, but the Chargers have no shot at the playoffs. Normally I’d say that as long as Rivers’ offensive line isn’t banged up and blocks for him, it doesn’t matter if all of his weapons are taken away, he’s going to find the end zone. However, my concern is the defense, which is banged up really bad. They played well against the Broncos, but teams will eventually figure out these rookies and they’ll light up that defense. With Verrett, Flowers, Addae, and Te’o out, I don’t see it ending well. I hope I’m wrong, and all these rookies/replacements keep playing well, but I have a feeling they’ll get found out sooner rather than later.
