    • San Diego Chargers: Their work in free agency was fine — they kept some key players (Mike Tolbert, Eric Weddle, Antwan Barnes) and added a piece here or there (Takeo Spikes, Bob Sanders). And they had a solid draft, selecting Corey Liuget for the D-line and rounding things out with two picks in both the second and third rounds.

    But what we’re interested in is Philip Rivers. He’s still one of the game’s elite quarterbacks, and he went out of his way this offseason to organize players-only workouts during the lockout. He’s talked extensively about his drive and focus this season, about wanting San Diego to avoid it’s usual early-season swoon.

    San Diego could definitely lose its spot on this list by not carrying over some nice offseason momentum into the regular season, but the mojo appears to be there — finally — to get off to a strong start.

    Interesting that this reports highlights Antwan Barnes as a key player and no mention of VJ or Clary ahead of him. Barnes I must admit, looked real impressive rushing the QB, but I didn't necessarily think he'd be being mentioned in such high regard.
