  • Why are so many national analysists high on the 2020 Chargers?

    This is the same team that finished with 5 wins in 2019. Yes, they have a lot of talent on both sides of the football. But their offensive line is still subpar at the tackle position. And everyone seem to gloss over the fact that they are starting Tyrod Taylor as their QB. Seriously, Tyrod Taylor. The pretzels that some of these talking heads twist themselves into dodge around this fact baffles me. I've seen media analysts predicting 10 to 12 wins from this squad following their draft. I just don't get it.

    Because they forget every year that the Chargers invent new ways to lose and are cursed.

      I think they may look like the post Superbowl50 Broncos. Really good if not great defense, bad offense.

        Is there much to like on that offense? They were losing badly with Rivers there and now they are on Tyrod Taylor. Is there much to the running game? Can Allen or the TE stay healthy?

        Chargers look just like Denver the last few years. Good defense, sure. If you can't score any points, you'll lose eventually.

          That defense looks really good.

            Hype. Sparklers are part of a new stadium in LA. NFL Network has their studios in LA.
            Rams are probably going to blow this year and they need an LA team to talk about so......

              It's an LA team, a huge market

                I think they look at the pieces on defense and see Lynn as a really good coach.

                  the answer to the original question is ,
                  They are not efficient enough to be analysts, not analysists.


                  regardless of what those who anal-ize think, the chargers have a solid defense, eckler will be featured in a run dominated offense, and tyrod will not turn the ball over.
                  They just have to win the kicking game !

                  also those media prognoticators are looking forward to the new stadium where franchises will be judged on how they FEED the media at their home games !
                  so why bite the hand that will feed you ?

                    But did the curse just move to Indy?

                      The Chargers Defense
                      What is their story?
                      Anchored by an almost 25 yr old Joey Bosa. Who has 82 QB hits, 40 sacks, and 53 tfl in 49 starts. lol that's not bad.
                      Derwin James, about to turn 24. Stud. Will be back for them this season.
                      ....But they have some problems.
                      We play them at home 11/22 and then at their place 12/27.
                      We lighting them up??

                      Only five teams allowed fewer total yards last season than the Chargers and just four were stingier against the pass
                      But...
                      Bradley’s unit was 21st in red-zone defense, 29th on third down and 32nd in takeaways.

                      The Chargers finished tied for last with a minus-17 turnover differential, which is why, when asked recently what the defense needs to improve upon in 2020, safety Derwin James blurted, “Takeaways.”
                      To that end, Bradley said an emphasis will be placed on pressuring quarterbacks this season, the idea being that offenses are more susceptible to game-changing mistakes when hurried.

                      Even with Pro Bowlers Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram on the edges, the Chargers lacked reliable pressure in 2019. After Bosa and Ingram, no one had as many as three sacks. League-leading Pittsburgh had six players with at least three sacks.
                      So, this offseason they’ve added nose tackle Linval Joseph, a 329-pound former power lifter who’s expected to bring a new level of athleticism.
                      “We’ll see if he can bring some more explosiveness, more of a penetrating-type mentality to that position,” Bradley said of Joseph.
                      The Chargers also signed veteran cornerback Chris Harris Jr. and veteran linebacker Nick Vigil and used draft picks on linebacker Kenneth Murray Jr. (first round) and safety Alohi Gilman (sixth round).
                      After he joined the team, Harris said he was told the Chargers planned to shake up their defensive plans, which Bradley confirmed Wednesday.

                      Bradley said, if things fall into place, his defense will be able to play more man-to-man pass coverage, a sharp departure from recent seasons.

                      “We need to mix it up more,” Bradley said. “[Playing man] I think lowers the quarterback rating. Generally, when you look at them [man-to-man statistics] over the course of a year, if you don’t overdo it, they have better numbers than zone.”
                      Gus Bradley says his defense was jacked.

                        Like Manning said to Mickelson in the **** talking leading up to their match on the 24th, "It will be nice to play against Tom because we are always paired together and like Phil's Chargers we never would win anything!"

                        They should have a great defense though but no QB and that isnt getting it done in AFCW.
