Ex-Chargers head coach Mike McCoy once said, "Your offense is only as good as your line", and looking at the Chargers offensive line they are not pretty good.
Those concerns are nothing compared to the excitement of a new start. Of course, you cannot forget about running back Jay Ajayi who rushed for 1,272-yards and eight touchdowns last season.
"We got a taste of it", Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said. He will have an easier secondary to go after on Sunday, and with them playing at the StubHub Center for the first time this season, they will look to get into the win column in front of their new home fans. The fields are outstanding. This Dolphins team is bolstering one of the best rosters they have had in years and many analyst are projecting them to be a playoff team once again this year. "It's definitely nerve-wracking when it's affecting so many different people. And so we're focused on trying to find a way to beat Miami". Coach Adam Gase said Landry has some swelling but likely will play. If they do, it could be a long day for Mr. Cutler. With some reliance on defense, the running game and a few choice passes downfield, however, the Dolphins can scratch their way to a winning record this year. "So I don't know if there are any pros and cons".
The Chargers host the Miami Dolphins in the team's return to Los Angeles, where they debuted as a franchise in 1960. We didn't get that opportunity this week. "Those two guys, they can wreck a game".

The defender said: "We are very optimistic ahead of today's game; we are condemned to beat them because we know Nigerians back home expect the best from us".
In fact, Ingram was particularly blunt Thursday when asked what problems Cutler poses: "None".
The Chargers' offense was stop-and-go in Denver this past Monday, but that was against a top-tier Broncos defense. Gates now gets three straight chances to do it at home. I think he was building, building, building and I felt like he hit a little bit of a lull right in the middle of the preseason. Ingram is a veteran who can rush the passer with either speed or power. Another milestone of note: Gates' next reception will be the 900th of his career, a mark only reached by two other tight ends: Gonzalez (1,325) and Jason Witten (1,096). He added five catches for 25 yards and a touchdown as a receiver, but may be able to do more damage on the ground Sunday against a Miami defense that struggled against the run last season.
