Of course, the saving grace there is Philip Rivers, who has already had a league leading season passing to a corps of street signees in 2010. But I would still like to see a couple more guys of at or near Keenan Allen level ability in that unit.

As much as everyone personally loves Floyd (as do I), he has never been a guy who consistently, every game, gets top tier production. Never. Plus, he misses time every year. Every year. Royal and VB both have talent, but so far, neither of them has had top tier production game in and game out, either. Tutu has one big game a year. I mean, come on, nothing more need be said about him. And after those guys, who else is left? Heck, we're even banking on a guy to duplicate what he's done just once in Allen, although I admit that I think the chance is good that he will.Let me put it another way. After Allen, who is this team's next Danario Alexander, a guy with top tier talent who will back it up with game in, game out high level production? Because I don't see him. I see a handful of guys who have either never played in an NFL game before, or will every once in a while give you really good production, and then disappear the next game or two.Sorry, but I don't call that very good depth.Like I said, though, Rivers always has masked such deficiencies. He did the same thing with very average offensive lines for years, too, until last year. And I have no doubt he will continue to, if needed.But that doesn't change the truth about the receiver corps .

Barring strategically critical injuries, each unit (offense, defense, ST) looks improved. Assuming we can eliminate the bonehead games from last year (e.g. the Houston game), I think we can man up against anyone. Our schedule is tough enough to keep us focused on each game as it comes up - take your eye off the ball for a couple of minutes and you might look up to a 14-0 score! If we are still in the running at the other end of that grinder we should be confident enough for a real run.
