San Diego Chargers – 2014 Tickets and Preview
San Diego Chargers tickets will be carrying high expectations into the 2014 NFL season. The Chargers seem to be on the rebound under new head coach Mike McCoy, who led San Diego into the playoffs for the first time in four seasons, in only his first year at the helm. Between McCoy and new GM Tom Telesco. The San Diego Chargers are ready to challenge the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West.
Philip Rivers has returned to prominence in the new offensive system, which relies on quick passes and reads. The presence of Keenan Allen has been a major boon to Rivers. Allen burst on to the scene in 2013 and never released a starting position, catching 71 passes for eight touchdowns, second on the team behind Antonio Gates. The Chargers are hopeful they can put a third dangerous receiver on the field with Malcolm Floyd coming back from injury. Ryan Mathews also took a step forward last season, totaling 1,255 yards and providing a reliable running game to counter the passing of Rivers.
Chargers ticket holders loved their offense but groaned when the defense was on the field. San Diego was picked apart by good quarterbacks, as their secondary simply wasn’t up to par. So, the Chargers went to the draft, taking cornerback Jason Verrett with their first pick. Verrett will join Steve Williams to give the team a young but talented secondary. Manti Te’o got a lot of attention last season, responding with a late season surge as he gained experience and confidence. On the line, the Chargers are hoping Dwight Freeney can pull another solid season out of his aging body.
To put it bluntly, the San Diego Chargers 2014 schedule is simply brutal. Within the AFC West there are home and away games with Denver and Kansas City. The Chargers also must play the NFC West with the Seahawks, 49ers, and Cardinals. There’s also a date with the New England Patriots. If the San Diego Chargers get through the 2014 NFL season with a record of 9-7 or better, there may be no stopping them in the postseason.
