OL Chris Watt learning on the run - Eric Williams
"Obviously when you first get here there’s going to be a bit of a learning curve, going from a college offense to an NFL offense," Watt said. "But I think being able to focus on two positions helps me learn the offense faster.

Decision to "Stay Home" a No Brainer for Rinehart - Ricky Henne
"Anytime you get an offer from your home team it means a lot," he explained following Tuesday’s OTA session.  "So I wanted to stay home.  Last year was the most enjoyable season I’ve ever had.  Being with this group of guys and reaching the playoffs was a great experience.  I’ve been a part of teams that weren’t nearly as good as we were last year, and losing was unenjoyable.  So winning with this group of guys was so much fun and weighed heavily on my decision to come back."

Top Front Sevens - Mike Tanier
Run defense was a bigger issue than pass rush for the Chargers last year. Opponents converted 73 percent of "power" situations (26th in the NFL) and the Chargers stuffed just 16 percent of opposing rushers (27th). The defense allowed few long runs, which means that opponents averaged 4.6 yards per attempt by gouging out consistent four-to-five yard rushes. Nose tackle Cam Thomas (now in Pittsburgh) will be replaced by Sean Lissemore, a former Cowboys prospect coming off a shoulder injury. If that's an upgrade, it's a pretty minor one.
