King Dunlap Solidifying the Blind Side For Philip Rivers

Remember when the San Diego Chargers were in dire need of a starting left tackle? We can put that need on the back burner now. Who knew that the answer was going to be former Philadelphia Eagles LT King Dunlap though?

Dunlap has done an excellent job as the starter on the left side of the line. He is a monster of a man. With D.J. Fluker lining up on the opposite side of the line, the team has a couple of monster men pushing people around at the book ends.

Dunlap has another season on his contract after this season. If he keeps playing at this level till the end of his contract, he will be looking at a really nice pay day and it could be by the Chargers.

The Chargers can look at different areas of need in the offseason with the arrival of Dunlap. Dunlap has been solid and the Chargers also have young Mike Harris that stepped in well while Dunlap was out. All of a sudden we have some players on the offensive line. That is what happens when the gameplan is to get the football out quick.

    He has been very good. Pff has him rated as one of the tops in the nfl… TT you are wise in the ways!

    Good thing we didn’t listen to all the sour puss’s from Philly…. They pretty much ran that dude out of town. I think a lot of credit needs to go to coach D as well, he has turned Harris into a solid back up, and future starter. But then again, Harris has some learning curve shoved down his proverbial throat last year. King has been awesome, and like you say, with Flucker on the other side, shit, we should see many more 100 yd days out of Mathews. Love it when PR17 has time to play biologist and pick the D a part. Hope everyone is healthy, and fired the F up for both our shots at the Donks, and KC. But of course, we gotta beat Jacksonville first… Bolt Up!!

      Good thing we didn’t listen to the sour puss’s here.

    It’s showing that TT knows a thing or two about finding players at great value. More importantly knowing who to bring in, to get them to play well seems to have helped as well.
