What to watch for: Chargers-Seahawks preseason game

Which Chargers players should you be watching during tomorrow night's preseason game, and why?

Unsure of what you should be looking for when the San Diego Chargers take on the Seattle Seahawks tomorrow? Well, here's what I'll be looking for:

  • How quickly is Philip Rivers getting the ball out of his hand? This is arguably more important than the offensive line's ability to pass-block.
  • The offensive line. Specifically, I want to see how they run block. I've saw some really interesting zone-blocking type stuff on Saturday that I'd like to see in a game.
  • The new, smaller Ryan Mathews. Can he still move the pile? Does he make quick decisions? Is his pass-blocking getting any better?
  • D.J. Fluker vs. the speed rushers on Seattle's defense.
  • How well is Marcus GIlchrist adjusting to life as a Safety? (Editor's Note: I forgot Gilchrist isn't expected to play tomorrow.)
  • Is there a WR on the team that will force the team to carry six WRs?
  • How does Le'Ron McClain fit in this offense? Is Chris Gronkowski a better fit?
  • Are Cornerbacks playing sides, or are they moving around for matchups?
  • Who is returning punts?

That's my list. What are you going to be looking for besides what I have listed above?
