Pros: Hunter Henry and Phil Rivers are just the perfect connection, and we have seen for over a decade now that if you give Rivers a tight end that can work down the field, he is going to put up points.
The receivers are important and its important to be able to hit Mike Williams and Keenan Allen, but if you give Rivers the easy passes to the tight end and the running backs he is going to make life difficult on you which is exactly what happened tonight despite the Chargers spotting the Steelers three possessions.
Cons: The Steelers offensive line pushed through the front seven of the Chargers like a hot knife through butter. If the Chargers could have stopped the Steelers 3rd string running back on first contact and not let everyone who touched the ball get so much YAC, then the Chargers could have won that game.
Great EDGEs only make a team better if you can force the offense to pass the ball once and awhile which you can’t do with no ability to stop the run.
