Bleacher Report NFL analyst Maurice Moton recently updated his win-loss predictions for each of the 32 NFL teams for the final time before the season kicks off in six days, and unfortunately not much has changed for the Chargers.
Moton still has the team finishing with an underwhelming 7-9 record, although that’s still two more wins than they had 2019. Progress is progress, right?
Regardless of the apparent silver lining, this team is in a place where anything less than a winning record is a letdown. It doesn’t matter who is under center, the Chargers are simply too talented to see them drop anywhere near double-digit contests.
I know they lost Derwin James for the season, but I feel like James would be the reason the team would get to 12 wins instead of the reason why they’d fall under ,500, if that makes sense.
While justifying the 7-9 record, Moton uses the same reasons we’ve all heard plenty of times this year. It’s the lack of a left tackle and their new quarterback under center. Up to this point, we have heard nothing from media members who were in attendance at training camp that there’s some catastrophe waiting to happen regarding the offense. While Tevi hasn’t been amazing, it hasn’t been anything close to what a lot of media members have been saying about their outlook.
Anyways, it’s just a bit old at this point. Do with this what you will.
