    QB - Philip Rivers
    TE - Sean Culkin
    LG - Dan Feeney, Scott Quessenberry
    C - Cole Toner
    RG - Michael Schofield, Forrest Lamp
    FB - Derek Watt

    LE - Joey Bosa
    OLB - Kyle Emanuel, Nick Dzubnar (ILB)

    PK - Caleb Sturgis
    P - Drew Kaser
    LS - Mike Windt

    TE Hunter Henry is currently on the IR eligible to return list. Rookie WR Dylan Cantrell is on the practice squad, with the other nine members being of the Magical Race.

    This team would be more palatable if Hunter Henry and Dylan Cantrell hadn't been injured. Henry was finally in line to start after sharing reps his first two seasons with cement-footed Antonio Gates, while Cantrell was a star of training camp, though as we saw with the Jets' treatment of Chad Hansen that doesn't ensure he would have made the active roster.

    Philip Rivers is an all-time great, and Joey Bosa is on his way to becoming one. The NFL is at the point now where a team with two White defensive starters is something to cheer for, though it wouldn't be surprising if Kyle Emanuel is demoted as White defensive players have to play at a blatantly obvious All Pro level to have any security as starters.

    In two seasons with the Chargers, fullback Derek Watt has a total of 8 rushes and 6 receptions. Can you say human bulldozer? What a waste of the prolific Watt football genes.

    Number of White starters: 6 (a healthy Henry would have given them 7)

    Number of Whites on 53 man roster: 14

    Grade: D

    Didn't watch the odious Chargers yesterday, even though their game with the unwatchable Chiefs was televised in my market. Chargers were humiliated yesterday on defense...much of it due to getting no sacks and virtually pressure on the QB.

    Might show just how good Bosa is....A current version of J.J. Watt, who a couple years ago could absolutely change games by himself.

    Also, really hoping Cantrell can find his way back. But as me and others have noted in previous years, big and fast white WR's, with great athletic ability scare NFL teams. Can't let them succeed!

    I think you are right. Without Bosa, the Chargers defense is as stout as a wet paper towel.

    Yep, Chargers unwatchable without Bosa and Henry.

    Would help if they used Watt like the Packers (back when they didn't hate Whites) used John Kuhn.
