San Diego Chargers: Best and Worst Case Scenarios for 2012

How good will the San Diego Super Chargers be in 2012? Opinions definitely vary.

Philip Rivers is still an elite quarterback, even after an uncharacteristically average season in 2011. The key is the return of Antonio Gates, now fully healthy, and the addition of wide receivers Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal to replace Vincent Jackson. The offense has playmakers and the best offensive line Rivers has played behind, but the defense may be an issue.

Eric Weddle remains great, and Shaun Phillips is an underrated hoss at linebacker. The rest of the defense? Give or take 'em. There are young players who need to improve and veterans who need to bounce back. All in all, there is talent, but players must live up to expectations and potential first.

Are the Chargers a division-winner or a cellar-dweller in 2012? Our NFL panel of Aaron Nagler, Josh Zerkle, Dan Levy and I break it down.
