Under head coach Mike McCoy, the San Diego Chargers have gone 19-15 in two seasons including one playoff win. They have finished third in the AF C West for two years straight and are looking to finally break out of their current mediocre rut. With some quality talent on both sides of the ball, there is room for improvement and 2015 could be the year. The majority of the offseason buzz centered on trading quarterback Philip Rivers which did not indeed come to fruition. Rivers has signed a fresh contract extension complete with a no-trade clause that will keep him in a Chargers’ uniform for the next five seasons. In order to protect Rivers this season, San Diego re-signed left tackle King Dunlap and brought in guard Orlando Franklin from the Denver Broncos. The Chargers opted to move up two spots in the first round of the 2015 draft to secure Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon who will replace the often injured Ryan Mathews. Brandon Oliver, who had a decent rookie year in 2014 and Danny Woodhead will also compete in this crowded backfield. There is certainly not a lack of weapons for Rivers in this offense. Antonio Gates, Keenan Allen and Malcom Floyd should dominate the targets but don’t count out tight end Ladarius Green or free agent receivers Stevie Johnson and Jacoby Jones. In 2015, the Chargers have to get more production out of their defensive line and pass rush. Most of the starters from last season are returning to the
team and will need to play tougher and smarter against opposing offenses. They added a couple new corners over the offseason and drafted Miami inside linebacker Denzel Perryman who has a chance to crack the starting lineup at some point this season.
