QB - Burrow the clear cut starter, Expecting an up and down year. He should get the bulk stats for  the ROY award but our main focus this year will be maintaining efficency and making good decisions.

RB - Rb by committee will be the theme here. Burkhead as a steady presence, Lewis in the receiving role & Eno as a change of pace back in both roles as he prepares to take on a heavier load next season.

TE - Boyles will start the year atop the Depth chart, Hes average but steady and will be a reliable check down for burrows. Brycen Hopkins will mainly be used as a flex TE while he uses the year to bulk up and learn the playbook.

WR - Hopkins is Hopkins, Top 3 Wr in the league and will see the majority of Burrows targets. DeMarcus Robinson is better suited to the #3 but will need to step up with Funchess opting out. Behind are 3 rookies & Hakeem Butler who will all be fighting for that #3 role.

OT - Conklin will line up at RT while with Cannon opting out Josh Jones will battle with Cameron Fleming for the LT spot. Alex Light and Adenjii will compete for the #3 Tackle position on the Depth chart

OG - The loser of the LT battle between  Jones and Fleming will slot into the LG slot while Schofield, Adenjii, Durant and price will compete for the RG spot.

C - Looney is the starter week 1 with Price and Hanson vying for the #2 spot.

DT - Shelton will be a mainstay in the middle of the line while Thomas & Gallimore will battle it out for the other starting position after Billings opted out. Clark and Huggins round out the group as UDFA with hopefully bright future in the league.

Edge - Jenkins and Attaocho are the starters week 1, Jenkins will hope to build on his 8 sacks last year. Lewis will compete with Attaocho for the other edge position, Durability has been an issue for Lewis through the years so he will be on a snap limit for the year while he adjusts to the nfl. Speaks and Garvin fill out the group with both vying for any leftover snaps.

LB - McKinney & Kwiatkowski will be the mainstays here. Mckinney at Mike, while KPL will slot in depending on personal & formation. James Burgess and 2 rookies round out the group with Fracis Bernard having a great camp so far. Look for him to make a push for snaps as the season progresses.

DB - My starting DBs are the biggest strength of the team. McCourty, Fuller, McKensie start at CB while Philip's and Tre Boston bring Savy vet experience at Safety. Depth is an issue after the starters with a slew of rookies and Epps so it will be an open competition for snaps all around.


I'll try get into detail later but work is hectic at the minute with everything going on.

HC Bienemy will look to implement a quick hit passing game to negate the the chargers pass rush. Plenty of slants, screens & crossers with a quick read and deliver approach to keep Burrows clean in the pocket.

While the Chargers CB's are good none of them individually will be able to match up with Hopkins, we expect him to be doubled on a regular basis leaving the other wrs with more operating room.

We will be using motion & stack formations to ensure Robinson/Butler get a free release as this is an area they struggle with. With a moving start this should allow them to pick up some quick YAC.

The chargers LBs & Safeties are the weakness of the team, Look for Burrows to take advantage of any mismatches in coverage. Lewis/Benjiman could have a big game out of the back field if covered by a LB.

While not a strength of our team we hope to maintain a 40/60 run/pass balance in terms of playcalling to keep the D honest. With hopkins doubled look for Joe to use his underrated athleticism to pick up 1st down and keep the clock moving.


Overall this game will come down to Burrows decision making, If he keeps the chains moving and avoids turnovers were confident in our Defence against Tyrod Taylor.

Wolfhounds DC Kris Richard's is going to put this game on the shoulders of Tyrod Tyrod Taylor,


4-3-3 will be our base Defence.

We will use a mix of zone & cover 1 man. The chargers lack speed to challenge us deep so we will aim to neutralize Keenan Allen and Eekler in the passing game, While migatating the running game with our LBs attacking the LOS aggressively.

With 300lb+ Shelton & Gallimore filling the middle of the line & our edge player in contain on early downs our LBs can attack aggressively downhill against the charger zone and option run game.

Mckensie will step onto the field in obvious passing downs for KPL to cover Eekler out of the backfield.

Mccourty & Fuller will take turns matching up with Allen depending on the situation while Boston will match up well against Henry with Philip's Playing deep or shading Allen depending on the situation.


By keeping the game in front of us we will force Taylor to beat us himself, & with the experience we have in our secondary we just have to hang on to the misplaced/bad decision throws when they come.

With Bulaga, William's and Pouncey all Questionable we expect to control the LOS and force Taylor into some tough situations.
