San Diego Chargers: Health Will Be the Difference Between Elite and Mediocre

Michael Floyd is going to be key for passing game. Staying healthy will be a must for the Chargers passing game to succeed.

Health is the difference between the Chargers either being elite, or just plain mediocre.  Let's be honest here.  The Chargers are loaded with talent.  That's a proven fact. 

Players on the roster that have such an upside to them that it's ridiculous to see what could have been the result of a full healthy season.  But that right there is the problem.  The Chargers main talents just can't be healthy for an entire season.

I was one of those guys that said that the Chargers were in transition after so many other players are getting older while the new blood come in and figure it all out.  I was wrong.  The Chargers were never in transition.  Maybe transition in scheme from "Martyball" to "Air Norval" but not in talent. 

I looked closely at the Chargers roster and came to a conclusion: The Chargers are an absolute beast just by looking at who the potential starters are.  The question now becomes whether the Day One starters can be the same starters throughout the season?

Did the Chargers underachieve in the past two years?  Absolutely.  Was it because they were short on talent?  Absolutely not. 

Truth is, no team had gone through more activated players for game day than the Chargers.  Sure every team goes through the injury bug but no one got hit with that bug more often than the Chargers.

Take some time to check out some of the players who will be key for the Chargers to return to elite form and look what they are supposed to be: a deep, talented, elite squad primed for a run at the title.
