San Diego Chargers:  Five Things the Chargers Need To Work on during the Bye

The Chargers schedule has provided them with a much-needed mid-season bye week to collect themselves and prepare for a post-season push. 

On paper, the Chargers had a very favorable schedule for the first half of the season.  But they quickly found out their opponents were not as easy to beat as most analysts might have predicted.  In fact, after nine weeks only one of the teams the Chargers have faced currently possess a losing record. 

Philip Rivers and the Chargers offense have been very impressive thus far ranking first in the NFL in yards per game.  The defense has also held their own currently ranking second in the league in yards allowed per game. 

The Chargers have had some big issues through nine games and are fortunate to be just one-and-a-half games out of first place in the AFC West.  If the Chargers can fix, or at least improve on, these issues they should once again have an impressive final two months of the season and head to a fifth straight playoff appearance.  Failure to do so could result in more bye weeks like during the entire post season.
