Hey Max, I really enjoyed your piece on the Chargers, "Depth Chart Analysis, X-Factors". Behind you solid points was strong in-depth analysis, like pointing out how Mathews hard bruising running is so important to Chargers offense and more important in the W -- L category. Or how important M. Ingram growth is to an average Chargers pass rush. (I mean, fans knock Te'o play but M. Ingram in his his pass rush abilities has been just as disappointing. (And you add Ingram developing more pass rush moves or is it true about short arms for a pass rusher?? There is more you say and you finish the piece very well......it was a good read.
Hope to find you writing more articles on the Chargers this season.
