With Chargers training camp right around the corner, I thought it would be interesting to give you a guide to ‘What to watch for’ for those who attend the public training camps.
What may be the most interesting, is the development of speed that the new players have gained with the playbooks. Look to see who may be taking more of a leadership role more than other years.

Jackson, after all, epitomized what the San Diego passing game was all about: a big, rangy, physical wide receiver whose size and strength alone made him an imposing...
The San Diego Chargers are excited about their offense without top WR Vincent Jackson? The AFC West powerhouse is looking to get back in the playoffs, and they may have found the solution to their recent woes.
Since the 2012 season is coming hard and fast, I thought a little review and speculation was in order, so I went through the Chargers regular season schedule (If the readers really wanted I could try and guess how each teams third and fourth strings will perform against each other).
Now, to clarify, as not only a Charger writer but a fan as well, I would like, hope...
