Did I say meaningless?
Sure, the outcome may be unimportant, but for many of the players, the game will be far from meaningless.
For rookies and other first-year Chargers, the Dallas game will be an opportunity to prove to the coaching staff why they deserve a place on the roster.
For the veterans, it’s an opportunity to work out the kinks and develop some synergy with their first-team counterparts before the start of the regular season.
For the second team, it’s an opportunity to move up the depth chart or establish a place on special teams.
For Norv Turner himself, it's an opportunity to hone his game-day coaching abilities and win a game on the road, down the stretch without the luxury of his first-team squad.
So, lets get to it and review what to watch for in the upcoming Dallas game.
