High turnout expected for start of Chargers’ workouts

Like all teams with new coaches, offseason workouts for the Chargers may commence on April 1.  According to Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego, the Chargers expect a “high turnout” for the launch of “Phase One” of the process.

Roughly 50 Chargers veterans are expected to show up for the initial two-week phase that entails strength and conditioning and ongoing rehab.  They’ll be greeted by a redesigned weight room and a resodded practice field, where quarterbacks can throw passes to receivers without defenders covering them.

Here’s a summary of the activities allowed during the three phases of the offseason workout schedule.  With the exception of a mandatory minicamp, all offseason work is voluntary.  Which, in the NFL and most other levels of football, really doesn’t mean voluntary at all.

    I believe the Chargers will be disappointed in the turnout. The fans are pretty fed up with promises. New coaches doesn’t make you a winner.

    Chargers will be neck and neck with the raiders for the basement of the division.

    Charger will not only take the division…they will get a first round bye…Rivers has a big year ahead! The other team that get the bye will be even a bigger story!!

    Here’s a ODD note: SD should have beat Denver in their first match up, they should’ve beat the Browns, Bengals and the Ravens too. That’s FOUR blown wins. The Chargers could have easily been 11-5. Prime example why all NFL teams need a GOOD LEFT TACKLE!
