A new era has begun, but for now, the roster remains the same.
In the past, Whisenhunt has not had an elite quarterback. The best quarterback he's coached in recent years was Kurt Warner at 37 years old.
Philip Rivers is the man in San Diego, and he will be for many more years. He'll be fitted with new, healthy offensive linemen this offseason. His weapons will most likely remain the same as last season, give or take a few.
It's been quite some time since the Chargers went into rebuilding mode, but they find themselves there once again. Some may think it would be crazy to say San Diego has playoff potential next year, but with the changes already made in the organization, with more to come, this team isn't far off from competing with the rest of the league.
