2014-15 Offseason Report


8075004

The 2013-14 NFL season has officially come to an end. The Seattle Seahawks, as a result of winning this years Super Bowl, have taken the Vince Lombardi Trophy back to the “12th man” in Seattle, requiring the other 31 teams that were not so fortunate to go back to the drawing board. One of those teams is our beloved San Diego Chargers. San Diego lost to the Denver Broncos 24-17 in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. However, despite being ruled out of playoff contention by almost everyone half-way through the season, they made the playoffs. Here’s how the Chargers will/can improve their odds heading into next season:

Chargers/Broncos Preview 2.0:

San Diego continues their amazing run through the playoffs. Following a 27-10 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, the Chargers head to Mile High Stadium once again to take on Peyton Manning and the Broncos. While nobody thought San Diego could have made it this far into the Playoffs nor that they can beat the Broncos a second time, they are looking to prove everyone wrong.

Chargers/Dolphins Preview:

Miami Dolphins vs. San Diego ChargersA lot of people don’t like to think one football game to be more important than another. However, this is a very important game for both the Dolphins and the Chargers. In fact, the scenario for both teams is very similar.

Ronnie Brown re-signs with Chargers

The San Diego Chargers now have three running backs who all rushed over 200 yards last season. Coming in to Free Agency they only had one legit threat at that position, Ryan Matthews. That is, If you can call him a legit threat. So the signing of Ronnie Brown will bulk up their running back depth chart.

Ronnie re-signed to a 1 year/ $1 million contract.

Ronnie Brown rushed for 4,815 yards with the Miami Dolphins before becoming a Charger.

Ronnie Brown has been in the league for nine years, six of those with the Miami Dolphins. He also played with the Philadelphia Eagles for a year, before signing with the Chargers last June.

His career stats go as follows: 5,171 rushing yards and 1,862 receving yards over the nine seasons he has been in the league. Brown was the second pick in the 2005 NFL Draft.

During his career with the Dolphins, Brown never rushed less than 600 yards in a season. He also never had less than four touchdowns during any of those seasons. During his last two seasons (with the Eagles and Chargers) he has rushed for a total of 356 yards. Only scoring one touchdown during both seasons.

Yet, he has stayed somewhat consistent.

Although the numbers I mentioned earlier are not flashy, his presence on the field was definitely felt. He averaged the same yards per carry as he did in Miami with the Dolphins. He also averaged more receiving yards with the Chargers than he did in any year with Miami (371), besides the 2007 season (389 yards).

Ronnie Brown is a good quality veteran backup, for a position in football that takes a lot of hits.
