Three Questions About the Chargers as Training Camp Gets Closer

Following a season in which the Chargers went 12-4 and made it to the AFC Divisional round, there’s a level of excitement about the team as 2019 approaches.

Now that the calendar has turned to July, the start of training camp is closing in and things are ramping up for the franchise to get ready for 2019.

Today we take a quick look at three questions about this team as they get set to embark on what they hope will be a season playing into early February.

1. Not Living Off 2018

Yes this franchise won 13 games total last year, but every year is brand new and they have to remember that they can’t just assume you can throw your helmet on the field and win.

A strong training camp and good work during the preseason will be important for this team, and getting some early success will go a long way.

2. Keeping Melvin Fresh

Last season Melvin Gordon yet again got injured, and the focus of the run game went to Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson.

It will be critical for this team to do what they can to keep Gordon healthy, even if it means taking him out at times and giving some chances to Ekeler and Jackson at important times during early season affairs.

3. A Quick Start

The team started 2018 at 1-2 and then went on a huge run that saw them go 11-2 the rest of the regular season. The first five games will be critical as even with three of them at home, they feature playoff teams like the Colts and Texans.

The Lions, Broncos and Dolphins are also in the mix, games that the Bolts will be favored and should win. They can’t fail early in 2019.

    It’s going to be tough for the Chargers to repeat their phenomenal 13-3 season last year, but they should be in the playoff hunt and part of the post-season mix.
