Chargers Starting Lineup Against the Colts

It's been a while since I did a post about the San Diego Chargers starting lineup. The first posts were speculation on who would be starting, and boy has it changed since the beginning of the season. The Chargers have gone through more players this season than they did all of last season.

Most of the starters are the guys we've come to expect, but there are some significant changes since the beginning of the season:

QB - Philip Rivers
RB - Mike Tolbert (With Ryan Mathews still injured, Tolbert will be the guy)
FB - Jacob Hester
TE - Randy McMichael (If Antonio Gates can't go, then McMichael will get the start)
WR - Vincent Jackson (His first game eligible after serving his suspensions couldn't come at a better time. Patrick Crayton has stepped up, but injured his wrist last week against Denver)
WR - Malcolm Floyd
LT - Marcus McNeill
LG - Kris Dielman
C - Nick Hardwick
RG - Tyronne Green (If Luis Vasquez can't go, then Green will get the start)
RT - Jeromy Clary

CB - Quentin Jammer
CB - Antoine Cason
SS - Paul Oliver (Steve Gregory is listed as Questionable, so it looks like Oliver might start)
FS - Eric Weddle
OLB - Shaun Philips
MLB - Stephen Cooper
MLB - Kevin Burnett
OLB - Antwan Applewhite (Shawne Merriman is gone, and Larry English has been hurt, but he'll see time on the field)
DE - Luis Castillo
DT - Antonio Garay
DE - Jacques Cesaire

Special Teams
P - Mike Scifres
K - Nate Kaeding
LS - Mike Windt (I've lost track of how many Long Snappers this team has used this season, but it's got to be a record!)

Enjoy the game, and good luck identifying all those guys, especially on Special Teams, who weren't there a few weeks. I don't know how many times during a game I got "Who the hell is number __?"

Go Bolts!
