    These stats don't tell us anything we don't already know, but I couldn't sleep. The only players that rank in the top ten are Philip Rivers, Vincent Jackson, Antonio Gates, Nate Kaeding & Antoine Cason.

    Offense

    I'm using the per game rankings for offense, instead of the total ranks since some teams have had bye weeks and other haven't.

    Passing
    Rank 2nd - Philip Rivers (311.2 yards per game)

    Rushing
    Rank 45th - LaDainian Tomlinson (35.0 yards per game)
    Rank 56th - Darren Sproles (22.5 yards per game)

    Receiving
    Rank 2nd - Vincent Jackson (93.2 yards per game)
    Rank 7th - Antonio Gates (87.2 yards per game)
    Rank 49th - Darren Sproles (49.2 yards per game)
    Rank 102nd - Malcom Floyd (31.8 yards per game)
    Rank 110th - Legedu Naanee (29.2 yards per game)

    Points
    Rank 4th - Nate Kaeding (8.8 points per game)
    Rank 75th - Antonio Gates (3.0 points per game)

    Defensive Stats

    These are not per game because I couldn't find them broken down that way.

    Sacks
    Rank 77th (tie) - Alfonso Boone (1 sack)
    Rank 77th (tie) - Luis Castillo (1 sack)
    Rank 77th (tie) - Kevin Burnett (1 sack)
    Rank 77th (tie) - Tim Dobbins (1 sack)
    Rank 77th (tie) - Larry English (1 sack)
    Rank 77th (tie) - Ogemdi Nwagbuo (1 sack)

    Tackles
    Rank 17th (tie) - Stephen Cooper (39 tackles)
    Rank 47th (tie) - Eric Weddle (30 tackles)
    Rank 72nd (tie) - Kevin Burnett (27 tackles)
    Rank 185th (tie) - Quentin Jammer (17 tackles)
    Rank 185th (tie) - Shaun Phillips (17 tackles)
    Rank 208th (tie) - Tim Dobbins (16 tackles)
    Rank 208th (tie) - Steve Gregory (16 tackles)
    Rank 208th (tie) - Clinton Hart (16 tackles)

    Interceptions
    Rank 9th (tie) - Antoine Cason (2 interceptions)
    Rank 22nd (tie) - Quentin Jammer (1 interception)

    Cooper would be in the top 5 if that was per-game, at the very least top 10.

    That was when we had Jamal, and Merriman was expected to be like the old Merriman, and LT was supposed to be healthy. That's 3 of our best players who have been injured and as a result have had their play severely limited.

    Hopefully the bye was enough for Merriman and LT to get back into the groove of things.

    That was also when we were reputed to have so much depth. :icon_shrug:

    I hope that the bye has helped, along with the embarrassing loss to Pittsburgh, to get us back on track. I also know when smoke is being blown up my ***. I believe that we have a good group of youngsters for the future, but I also see a big drop-off between our starters, like Jamal, & those guys.

    The feeling of entitlement alone won't get it done.
