Tuesday's afternoon session at San Diego Chargers' training camp started slowly with an emphasis on walk-throughs, but ended spiritedly with a competitive session of eleven-on-elevens. Drew Brees started with a quick pass over the middle to tight end Antonio Gates. Gates, who drew multiple defenders during scrimmages today, quickly turned upfield, but was immediately met by a plethora of defenders.

As usual, the technique of the offensive line is often ignored when looking at the San Diego Chargers. It isn't that they are not appreciated, they are. But they don't provide the glitz and glamour that quarterbacks, wide receivers and defensive backs have in a minicamp setting. They are, however, just as important. So this minicamp notebook goes out to the guys in the trenches, the fellas who truly make it happen.

When your 2002 Lineman of the Year goes down to injury, it does not bode well for your team. When that team is the San Diego Chargers, on a line that has not played up to snuff, the problem is intensified. Such was the case for the 2003 squad and a 4-12 season became the reward.
