The Chargers announced today that they will start the preseason with a home contest against the Dallas Cowboys. Former Chargers defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will lead the 'Boys into town for a matchup of two of the most talented teams in the NFL.
The Chargers-Cowboys game could be a precursor of things to come. Former NFL scout Tom Marino predicted in his 2009 First-Round Mock Draft that the Chargers and Cowboys will collide in Super Bowl XLIII.
The Chargers will then hit the road to face a familiar preseason foe, the St. Louis Rams. San Diego will see three of its former players in that contest: CB Fakhir Brown, WR Reche Caldwell and OT Brandon Gorin.
The Bolts then return home to host another of the NFC's playoff teams from a year ago. The Seattle Seahawks come to Qualcomm for the final time under head coach Mike Holmgren. The Chargers-'Hawks game will be a nationally televised Monday Night Football game.
San Diego concludes the preseason with an in-state road game against the San Francisco 49ers. San Francisco was one of the most active teams in free agency, reeling in DE Justin Smith, RB Deshaun Foster and WRs Isaac Bruce and Bryant Johnson. The 49ers will look to test out their new makeup against an established team in the Chargers.
