Thoughts on the Chargers schedule so far
12th Man: The 5-2 Chargers have had a feast or famine schedule. They have beat five teams with a combined record of 9-28-1 and lost to two teams with a combined one loss. How confident are Chargers fans in this team right now?
Padaon: The Chargers can compete with the best. They were a few plays away from beating the Rams and the Chiefs. We can only play who is on the schedule, but the team has shown that they can move the football on anyone. The offense can run the ball and Philip Rivers has so many weapons on offense. The biggest question is the defense and it has slowly gotten better and better. As soon as Joey Bosa gets back on the field, it will be a team that can make noise in the playoffs.
Biggest surprise about the Chargers so far this year
12th Man: What is your biggest surprise about the 2018 Chargers so far?
Padaon: Melvin Gordon. He has been running the ball aggressively and the line is opening up some gaping holes for him. His ability to catch passes and break tackles has been huge on offense.
Unsung Chargers that might make an impact on Sunday
12th Man: Who is one offensive player and one defensive player for Los Angeles that might be a bit under the radar who could have big impacts on Sunday’s Seahawks game?
Padaon: On offense, there are so many weapons that you don’t know which one will stand out on Sunday. Austin Ekeler would be the under the radar guy. Every Chargers fan knows about him, but he may not be known by everyone else. He breaks off something big almost any time he touches the football.
On defense, Desmond King still is slightly under the radar and makes an impact every game. He seems to get his hands on the football a lot.
