The article focuses on the football team San Diego Chargers. The team has to decide what to do with CB Quentin Jammer--who is still struggling to find the ball in the air and is getting burned, particularly when safeties fail to help-next season. Rookie OLB Shawne Merriman has slowed a bit as opponents have focused on stopping him and the season has dragged on beyond what he was accustomed to in college. Although QB Drew Brees' favorite targets remain TE Antonio Gates and WR Keenan McCardell, he has become adept at consistently using all of his receivers.
