Oh ho ho, you didn't think the San Diego Chargers were going to get handed another easy schedule so that all of us Bolts fans could get our hopes up again, did you? An astounding ten of the Chargers sixteen games in 2011 will be against teams that finished the 2010 season .500 or better. Roughly two-thirds of their regular season games will be against tough opponents. At the top of that heap lies the Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers, who might be even better in 2012.

2010 Record: 10-6, 2nd in NFC North
Playoff Outcome: 4-0, SB Champions (Eagles, Falcons, Bears, Steelers....wow)

Key Free Agents

Brandon Jackson, RB
Donald Driver, WR
James Jones, WR
Daryn Colledge, LG
Cullen Jenkins, DE
Atari Bigby, S
Mason Crosby, K

Key IR Returns

Ryan Grant, RB
Jermichael Finley, TE
Nick Barnett, ILB

 

If Greg Manusky was looking to prove himself as a worthy replacement for Ron Rivera, he's going to have his shot against one of the best offenses in the league when the Green Bay Packers travel to San Diego to take on the Chargers.
