CBS Sportsline ranks the Chargers offensive line as #2 only to Dallas. That is more realistic in my opinion. The Chargers have four former Pro Bowlers on their roster (when you factor in Newberry)!
But what's with ESPN saying the Chargers are better at pass blocking than run blocking? Sure they don't give up a ton of sacks, but their bread and butter is clearly the power run game.
6. San Diego Chargers
This group struggled to start the 2007 season without C Nick Hardwick in the lineup. Unfortunately for San Diego, it will start the 2008 season without Hardwick, who is coming off foot surgery. However, this is a very good group overall. LT Marcus McNeill started slowly last season, but rebounded quickly. At 6-foot-7, 336 pounds, he has tremendous size, long arms and good athletic ability. McNeill and LG Kris Dielman make up one of the best left sides in the league, and this duo can be dominant at times. There are some concerns on the right side, however, as RG Mike Goff is starting to slow down with age and RT Jeromey Clary, who was a pleasant surprise last year, still needs to further prove himself. This group is better at pass blocking than run blocking, and the Chargers might look to throw more next season.
