    SAN DIEGO ---- Quarterback Philip Rivers' best friend, the Chargers' defense, looks to be in pretty good shape.

    While Rivers will be judged on how he directs the offense, the defense will have a big hand in that. If it performs at the level Chargers coaches predict, Rivers won't be saddled with poor field position, won't have to orchestrate long drives to penetrate end zones and won't have to rally the Chargers with a one-dimensional (passing) approach.

    The Chargers' blueprint reveals a blue-collar defense aiding a green quarterback. It shows a run defense that is tougher than a $5 steak and a pass rush that often congregates in the rival quarterback's pocket.</blockquote>
