Well Cheap Kyzir White Jersey , gentlemen, what do you think is the biggest storyline for the Chargers before training camp gets going?Jason Michaels: Silly as it may be, I think that the biggest story heading into camp is how this team handles being considered the favorites to win the division. Do they buy the hype? Do they feel they have the pieces to avoid ‘Chargering’ away so many single-point games?These are the two most common thoughts I’m seeing from the media, so I’m sure they’re awareMatthew Stanley: I think at this point the biggest story heading into camp is can any of the TE’s currently on the roster step up to help fill the void left by the Hunter Henry injury, or are they going to need to get Antonio Gates on the phone before the season?Ryan Doyle: The Chargers sorting out the tight end position is the biggest storyline during camp. With whispers around Antonio Gates’ return and no other reliable options on the roster at the moment, it’s one of the team’s biggest concerns.Richard Wade: I tend to agree that the biggest storyline is probably the tight end position, but I think an underrated storyline heading into camp is the return of Forrest Lamp. Last year’s second-round pick has yet to play in a regular season NFL game and he may already be the most talented offensive lineman on the team. He could, along with Mike Pouncey, form the core of a very good line in front of Philip Rivers and Melvin Gordon.Jason Michaels: Ooo.. and kickers.Caleb Sturgis can be the rock we finally need.. if he’s over his hip injury that got him booted from the EaglesLouis Gorini: The biggest storyline should be will Mike Williams justify his first round selection from a year ago and actually show improvement or will he continue his downward spiral and be forced to sit behind Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin. The Chargers need Mike Williams now more than ever especially with the Hunter Henry injury. Williams needs to show he can understand the offense and will have some great competition in camp with the elite corners he will be facing in camp every day.Jamie Sewell: I think the biggest storyline is what happens with the CB position. There’s too much talent there to all see the field at once , and Jason Verrett, Trevor Williams and Desmond King are all competing to start opposite Casey ‘Not a system corner’ Hayward.’ That competition then branches out into other storylines - does Des King move to safety? Would a trade be in the works for Verrett? You don’t see battles of this quality very often in training camp.Ruben J. Gonzales: I think the biggest storyline heading into the season is are they going to sign Antonio Gates. I can see ‘Gates Watch’ coming complete with some fan bringing a Gates cutout and every day adding another numeral indicating how many days the ordeal is lasting. Of course, this is happening because of Hunter Henry’s injury and the seemingly lack of urgency attitude to fill his void with another body. Gates Watch will be televised!Michael Peterson: To no surprise from me, the biggest headline I’m looking forward to is the health of Forrest Lamp. If he is anywhere near 100%, he could step in and reinforce the right side of the line that has underperformed for the last several years. His 2016 tape still brings tears of joy to my eyes. It was that good.Daniel Stebbins: I think there are a number of fascinating storylines, many already mentioned here, but one I’m excited to see is the linebacker group and who sees time where. With the additions of Nwosu and White, and a fully healthy Perryman, we could and should see a very different looking group than last season. Considering how poorly the group has performed for some time , the added talent could be a breath of fresh air. How that impacts guys we have seen for a couple years like Dzubnar, Emanuel and Brown, not to mention Hayes Pullard, should be an interesting situation playing out over training camp.Garrett Sisti: What are they doing with that Safety group? Specifically who’s going to be the starting Free Safety and where does Derwin James fit in? James played all over in OTAs even getting some reps at SS behind Addae but they don’t have a clear leader to take over FS. Also is the team going to throw Desmond King back there and ask him to play centerfield when he’s so good near the line of scrimmage? How about answering your question with more questions?What do you think? Let us know in the comments. A 2-2 record after the first quarter of the season is not where Philip Rivers thought the Los Angeles Chargers would be, but it is a vast improvement compared to the past couple seasons.The Chargers got to .500 with a 29-27 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. It is the first time since 2015 they are even after four games and better than their 0-4 start to last season.If the Chargers are going to start stringing together wins, the next two weeks present a prime opportunity. They host Oakland (1-3) next Sunday and then are at Cleveland (1-2-1) on Oct. 14. The Chargers then have an Oct. 21 game at London against Tennessee (3-1) before their bye week.For a team that won six of its final nine games last season, the Chargers know that they need to position themselves well before November to make a run for their first postseason berth since 2013."We've got to go. We can't keep going win for loss the whole way there. We know what that does — that usually leaves you on the outside looking in," said Rivers, who was 25 of 39 for 250 yards with three TD passes and an interception. "Now we have a chance to win two in a row next week with the Raiders coming in."Rivers did end up reaching a couple milestones in Sunday's game. It marked the 200th game of his career and he passed John Elway for the eighth-most passing yards in NFL history. Rivers has 51 ,504 yards in 15 seasons.Coach Anthony Lynn and Rivers have talked all year about the versatility of the offense, and they showed it off on Sunday. Rivers completed passes to eight players while running backs Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler averaged 5.6 yards per carry against a Niners defense that was 10th against the run and allowing only 97 yards per game."I think last year when we were rolling, we were balanced. We've been that this year for the most part," said Rivers who has thrown for three or more touchdowns in five of the past six games.BEATHARD MAKES STRIDESSan Francisco's C.J. Beathard showed improvement from his rookie season. The second-year quarterback was 23 of 37 for 298 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. His 82.9 passer rating is his second highest in six career starts."I felt a lot more comfortable being out there in control. I definitely felt a lot more comfortable than last year," he said.Beathard's best throw of the day came on an 82-yard touchdown to George Kittle, where he found a wide open Kittle at the at the Niners' 40. Kittle, who was also a teammate of Beathard's at Iowa, caught it in stride and was able to outrun Chargers' defenders to the end zone.GROUND GORDON: Most of Gordon's big plays the first three games were as a receiver, but he had his first 100-yard rushing game of the season on Sunday with 104 yards on 15 carries. He had two carries of 15 yards or more Brandon Mebane Jersey , including a 34-yarder to the San Francisco 4 during the fourth quarter that helped set up Sturgis' go-ahead field goal."I think I had some good blocks, made some guys miss and guys kind of got lazy on the tackles, and you got to make them pay for it," Gordon said.It is the sixth 100-yard rushing game of Gordon's career and his first since last Oct. 29 against New England.GROUNDED: It was a bad day for San Francisco's running game and its run defense. Matt Breida came in tied for the league lead in rushing but he was held to 39 yards on nine carries.The defense was 10th against the run and allowing only 97 yards per game but allowed a 100-yard rusher for the first time in 11 games.KICKING WOES: Sturgis made three field goals, but he also missed two extra points and a 54-yard field goal attempt. Lynn wasn't immediately saying that Sturgis' job is in danger, but it wouldn't be a surprise if the team brought in kickers for tryouts this week.The Chargers have missed eight PATs since the start of last season, which is the most in the league.TACKLE TROUBLES? The starting left tackles for both teams ended up getting injured during the first half and did not return. San Francisco's Joe Staley suffered a knee injury midway through the second quarter and Los Angeles' Russell Okung strained a groin on the last offensive play of the first half.Follow Joe Reedy at joereedy
