Two months ago, it was an injury-plagued season for the San Diego Chargers.
But now, as the Chargers face the New York Giants in the AFC wild-card round, they are getting their season back on track.
Coach Anthony Lynn has called a number of times about adding some toughness and athleticism to the defense.
He has even suggested that a player who is not particularly athletic will help with the running game.
The Chargers are in the process of adding two more offensive linemen and a wide receiver.
They are not alone in trying to add some physicality and toughness to their defensive unit.
NFL teams have been making moves on defense.
They are looking to add more players who can play the run and pass.
Some of those players are running backs.
Some of them are defensive linemen.
Some are offensive linemen.
And some are running linebackers.
Running backs are more physical than defenders.
They get after the quarterback.
They run downhill.
They can run faster than most linemen can run.
They have great agility.
They have great balance.
They can make plays with their hands.
They make plays against the run.
But the running back position has a lot of questions and concerns, so they’re looking for a running back to add toughness to the group.
This week, the Chargers are expected to take a look at the running backs who have had a breakout season, including Jamaal Charles, who has 10 career 1,000-yard rushing seasons and two rushing touchdowns.
He is expected to be a late-round pick in the NFL draft, but that’s OK because the Chargers would love to have him on their roster.
Here is how the Chargers intend to use Charles.
As you may know, he was a member of the New England Patriots for a time and is now a member.
That is why he’s a great addition.
Charles is a very good athlete.
He’s an outstanding athlete.
You can see his strength.
You just don’t see that in the average back.
If you look at what he does on a daily basis, he does a tremendous job of just getting downhill and making plays.
He’ll go through holes and he’ll run through them.
He’s a guy that’s going to be an impact player in this league.
You know he has a great body, he has great balance, and he can run through holes.
He was a very, very good player in New England.
He just wasn’t very productive.
He made a couple of big plays.
He was really, really good, really, good.
I don’t know how many touchdowns he had in New Orleans, but he had two touchdowns, one rushing, one receiving.
I think you could probably put two touchdowns on that.
The way he plays, he is an outstanding player.
He really has it in him.
He is one of those guys that you see, the way he runs and he’s going.
He can do it.
You see him in the spring training games.
He had a couple catches in the preseason games.
It shows he has that ability.
He could have a big year if he stays healthy.
He needs to stay healthy.
The offensive line is an area that needs a lot more work.
They were terrible last year.
They didn’t do a good job of moving the line around.
The offensive line was very inconsistent.
It just didn’t feel like they were able to do anything.
They need to make a few changes.
They should be more consistent.
The tackle position needs a little more work as well.
They don’t move well.
I’d like to see them do a better job of getting out there and working out, because I think that is one area that they can improve on.
They should be able to move and be more athletic.
They’ll be better at getting off blocks, but they will also be better in the run game.
There is so much speed, but it’s just not there right now.
I’m excited about this guy.
I’m excited for him to have a breakout year.
He fits the bill.
I just think they need to take some of the negatives out of him.
I know he is a competitor.
I have seen him in practice a couple times.
He comes out and runs with a purpose.
He wants to win.
You’ll see him doing it.
He doesn’t have any interceptions.
He isn’t a good tackler.
You will see him get in the backfield, but I’m looking forward to seeing how he plays in the games.
The wide receivers need to work on their speed.
The slot receiver needs to be better and he needs to improve.
There are too many times that he’s getting behind the receivers and he just doesn’t make plays.
It’s hard to read the routes.
You have to be able go through it.
The running back has to improve as well because they are a very physical position
