Sam Bradford is the man, and it’s odd to realize that he’s turning 30 this year and entering his eighth season since going first overall in 2010. He has his offensive coordinator, Pat Shurmur, hired by Mike Zimmer to replace Norv Turner at midseason last year, taking over permanently. He also has a new quarterback coach, Kevin Stefanski, getting a staff promotion. More important, he doesn’t have to do the crash course in their scheme the way he did when he was acquired right after Bridgewater’s devastating training-camp knee injury.
They need to translate numbers (career high in yards and passer rating, career low in interception percentage, NFL record 71.6 completion percentage) into a far more productive offense (23rd in total yards, 29th in yards per play, dead last in rushing and in yards per carry). And they have to do that with several new weapons and a rebuilt offensive line. More? They’re still hoping to find out soon how far Bridgewater is back. For now, the break-glass-in-case-of-emergency quarterback is Case Keenum.
There are certainly arguments to be made for either side. There’s no doubt the 2017 version of this team stacks up to the one that lit the league on fire for nearly 28 points per game. If Keenan Allen can Cheap Golden State Warriors Jerseys stay healthy — no small feat, considering he’s only played nine games the past two seasons — the Chargers will be absolutely loaded with playmakers. What’s more, even with a mostly anonymous offensive line, he may have Cheap Jerseys In US more protection than he did in 2010.
