The San Diego Chargers need to make a splash now.
The Chargers are probably the hungriest we've ever seen them. After too-early playoff exits and a failed bid to the 2010 NFL playoffs, the Bolts are ready to go on a tear.

Each player is thrown into a different situation. Some players' situations may be a bit easier to handle than others, but regardless, some players have the tangibles—and usually, the intangibles, too—to succeed and have huge impacts on the Chargers' Super Bowl race in 2011.
