    REPORT DATES: Rookies July 26th, Veterans July 29th SITE: Chargers Park, San Diego, CA CAMP OBJECTIVES: For all of their successes in 2004, the Chargers were inconsistent at best against aerial attacks and with the pass rush. The team is hoping that the drafting of outside linebacker Shawne Merriman will translate to a great deal more heat on opposing quarterbacks, in turn aiding a secondary that was scarcely tinkered with in the offseason. The offense was barely touched either, but Marty Schottenheimer and company will have some work to do regardless. The Bolts must get Philip Rivers ready in the event that Drew Brees turns back into a pumpkin, and must figure out if Keenan McCardell, Reche Caldell, Eric Parker and rookie Vincent Jackson (Northern Colorado) can handle the receiving load. San Diego drafted running back Darren Sproles (Kansas State) to succeed the departed Tim Dwight (Patriots) in the return game, and must make sure he's comfortable with the role. PRESEASON SCHEDULE: at Green Bay (8/11); vs. St. Louis (8/21); at Minnesota (8/26); vs. San Francisco (9/1)
