2011's Best Performances: Safeties - Khaled Elsayed
When Miami came to San Diego, one player really stood out in the game and that was Weddle. He broke up a pass, intercepted two (though one was called back due to a penalty), and even got a hit on the QB. Throw in a tackle that brought on the Dolphins’ kicking unit and you’ve got a very nice outing.

Could be another tease, but early signs say Bolts added key pieces - Kevin Acee
And so … with the caution that this could well be like the movie trailer that promises thrills and chills only to turn out to be "John Carter," I am intrigued enough by what I see and hear to deliver the teasing news that the Chargers have perhaps found the final pieces of the puzzle.

Can Robert Meachem Be the No. 1 Receiver for the San Diego Chargers in 2012? - Michael C. Jones
Robert Meachem is the player that the Chargers have tabbed to become their new No. 1 receiver. At 6-feet-2-inches tall, he doesn't have the size of Jackson, but he's a young player with excellent speed. More importantly, he brings championship pedigree and a work ethic that has him focused and already working closely with quarterback Philip Rivers during the offseason's voluntary workouts.

That leaves Malcom Floyd as the winner in all of this. Though he’s never surpassed 45 receptions in a season, he is the only player outside of Gates who has developed a rapport with Phillip Rivers. Trust is key for a quarterback and Floyd has proven he can perform when called upon. In his last three games in 2011, Floyd had no less than 5 catches, 95 yards and scored each game. He also becomes the biggest bodied wide receiver on the roster and will be looked for in the red zone as teams do their best to negate Antonio Gates.

Breakout Player Candidate: Vincent Brown San Diego Chargers - Jesse Bartolis
Brown believes any football that goes in the air belongs to him, and when he catches the football he knows how to head up the field and create yards after the catch. Brown possesses deceptive speed and despite his lack of elite straight line speed or size, Brown was able to make big plays last year. In his rookie season Brown only reeled in 19 receptions, but in those receptions he averaged 17.3 yards per reception.
