    “He’s shown he’s a playmaker,” Chargers Head Coach Norv Turner said. “He’s a smart guy. (Becoming a starter) is just another step in his development. He’s obviously an outstanding player. With that group, we’ve got a lot of playmakers back there.”

    The Chargers led the NFL in interceptions a year ago and believe their secondary has a chance to be even better in 2008. That belief is due in part to Weddle’s increased role. Hart can’t seem to say enough good things about the second-year pro who joins him in the starting lineup.

    “He has all the tools that it takes to be a good player in this league,” Hart said. “He’s going to do great. He’s going to make it easy for me back there because we talk and communicate so well. He allows me to play my game and move around. It’s good to have someone back there that you have that continuity back there.”

    I think that our secondary will be the best in the NFL nest season.

    That's an exciting thought. It's been awhile since I've heard an announcer use those terms describing us. :tup:

    They'll be "Weddled" and "Cro'ed" as well. Man, our secondary will be an interception machine this season!

    Kick ***!

    It's kinda buried in the article, but basically it says right now Weddle is playing as our starting FS. When we go into a dime package Steve Gregory is stepping in as FS and Weddle comes to the line to play the dime-back role.

    I think it's a great situation 'cause it puts him on the field for every down, which is key. But it also takes advantage of his versatility by putting him near the line when we play 6 DBs.

    We'll see how it shakes out in training camp and early on in the season, but who does a quarterback avoid throwing against in our defensive backfield, particularly if we drop linebackers in those kinds of coverages?
