Developing Story out of San Diego: Could affect Week 1 Matchup
This might affect the 1st game of the year against us. I hope we can gameplan.
San Diego, CA – San Diego Chargers head coach Marty Schottenheimer has announced that he plans to break training camp with absolutely no wide receivers on the 53 player active roster. “Frankly, I can’t even name a single receiver that we currently have in camp,” admitted Schottenheimer after yesterday’s afternoon practice. Stunned reporters then reminded him of some of the receivers’ names, such as Tim Dwight, Reche Caldwell, Eric Parker, and Kevin Dyson, and asked the coach what his opinion of each of them was. Said Schottenheimer, “Tom (sic) Dwight is about as tall as an eighth grader. Reche Caldwell and Eric Parker………never heard of them. Are they in camp? And I believe you are trying to trick me with Kevin Dyson, because he’s a cornerback for the Tennessee Titans. I’m only concerned with the San Diego Chargers football team.” (editor’s note: Kevin Dyson indeed is in Chargers’ training camp. His brother, Andre, plays for Tennessee). Schottenheimer went on to say that the Chargers plan to utilize “a lot” of 4- and 5-tight end sets this season.
