Top 20 offseason additions likely to make an immediate impact - John Breitenbach
The Chargers’ lines were verging on disgraceful last season. Brandon Mebane is on the downslope of his career, but at least provides a keystone around which San Diego can build. He’s consistently graded positively against the run, a claim none of the Chargers’ 2015 starters could make. Mebane gets the Chargers’ defensive front back on the road to respectability, even if there is much work still to be done.

Philip Rivers and Jason Verrett match wits at Chargers' OTA practice - Eric Williams
"That’s the way I play. Every snap when me and Keenan line up, we’re like, ‘Let’s go.’ That’s the same mentality we had last year, and we’re looking to do the best on the best."

Expect less shotgun, more play-action for Philip Rivers in 2016 - Eric Williams
"Early in the season we had a high percentage of negative plays," Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said. "So then as the playcaller, you start saying, 'I’ve got Philip Rivers back there. I can throw it a couple more times and gain those yards.'"

Luck, of late, has smiled on Chargers - Tom Krasovic (UT$)
In late 2013, Philip Rivers singled Whisenhunt out as the main architect of the balanced offense that led to the Chargers' first playoff win in five years. In my view, Rivers had his best football year under Whisenhunt, if one counts his turnover-free performance in the playoff upset at Cincinnati.
