    They have all the elements in place, but as they move toward the future, this organization will have to decide who is going to be calling the shots at the quarterback position. The development of their Big Three will be determined by who is under center. If it is Drew Brees, then this unit is well on its way.

    The light went on for Brees last season, and that really opened up the rest of the Chargers' offense. The tough inside running of LaDainian Tomlinson, and the ability of tight end Antonio Gates to move all over the field, creating mismatches for opposing defenses, made the Chargers tough to defend. While technically a tight end, Gates fits in the Big Three mold because he is primarily a pass-catching tight end who spends 75 percent of the time flanked out like a wide receiver.

    If Philip Rivers is the man under center after the 2005 season, look for this unit to take a step backward in 2006. While Rivers is a smart QB with unlimited potential, history has shown that young quarterbacks need time to develop and get in sync with the rest of the offense.
