Social media is a funny thing, so to speak. Lately, I have seen a ton of Chargers fans arguing about the number of wins the team will finish with in the 2016 regular season. The numbers range anywhere from three to 12, with some providing solid reasoning behind their prediction, while others have naively stated things that are just plain ignorant. Thus is life in #ChargersTwitter.
I like what the team has done this offseason. The free-agency additions of Matt Slauson, Brandon Mebane and, eventually, Joey Bosa should certainly help fortify both the offensive and defensive lines. Wide receiver Travis Benjamin and rookie tight end Hunter Henry provide quarterback Philip Rivers with two intriguing weapons in the passing attack. That being said, the team has already placed 14 players on injured-reserve, including players who were expected to provide solid contributions in ’16, such as Branden Oliver, Stevie Johnson and Sean Lissemore.
But this article is not about how I think the team will perform this season, it’s about what YOU think.
