Sometimes, when watching a preseason game you may drift off here and there. After the 1st quarter, most fans have no reason to continue to watch the game. Here I will tell you what players you should be looking for on the field and give you a reason to keep on watching.
1. The LT position battle- Against the Seahawks, most charger fans were shocked to see King Dunlap start with the 1st team (I know I was). But after comparing his performance to Max Stark's, it was apparent that Mike Mccoy's decision was justified. Against the Bears, Max Starks made it even easier to chose King Dunlap as the starting LT. Look at that left side Saturday, for it could be the last chance for Max Starks.
2. Jarius Wynn- The defensive line for the San Diego Chargers is probably the best in the AFC West (when healthy) but it is also the most concerning position when it comes to depth. Look for Jarius Wynn on that line to show the coaching staff why they need him for he has had a great preseason thus far.
3. Fozzy Whittaker & Edwin Baker- As your reading this right now there are 3 running backs that are sure to make the 53 man roster. Ryan Mathews, Ronnie Brown, and Danny Woodhead. You would think that there is room for 1 more running back on the roster. That brings us to Fozzy Whittaker and Edwin Baker. I'm not even going to mention Micheal Hill because the Chargers don't have room this year to wait for a player to fully develop. Fozzy had a below average game against the Seahawks but did better against the Chicago Bears with 9 attempts, 33 yards, and 1 touchdown. On the other hand Edwin Baker had 5 attempts and 36 yards. These two running backs have their careers on the line this upcoming Saturday.
4. All the WR's we have- This an obvious one. With Danario Alexander out for the year, Malcolm Floyd and Eddie Royal out for the preseason (hopefully), the Chargers find themselves with a little bit of a problem. The question is, who will make the most of their opportunity? Will it be highly praised Vincent Brown, maybe the draft steal Keenan Allen, or even free agent bust Robert Meachem. Whoever it is, every WR that is on the Chargers right now needs to understand that this could be one of the most important games of their career.
