As has been the Chargers' trend under head coach Norv Turner, they got off to a slow start in 2010, losing four of their first seven games. Part of that was because of injuries and historically awful special-teams play, but there were also some key Bolts missing in action. One of them, OLT Marcus McNeill, sat out the first five games of the season due to a contract holdout and was playing his way into shape during the next two weeks. When he finally returned to 100 percent, the Chargers' offense, and their record, improved. McNeill will be at peak performance from the start of the season in '11, whenever that start is. The former Pro Bowler underwent knee surgery in February, but he has stated that he's fully healed and has resumed offseason workouts. Now in the second year of a six-year contract, QB Philip Rivers' blind-side protector will look to get San Diego off to a better record than in years past.
