There is expected to be little difference in the Chargers' offense coordinated by Hal Hunter in 2012 than there was from Clarence Shelmon's unit last season. With Norv Turner still the primary offensive play-caller, the team is going to remain a vertical passing team that runs much of its plays out of the shotgun. Hunter, who keeps his title of offensive-line coach to go along with offensive coordinator, will now take a larger role in creating the offensive game plan with Turner. We hear that the most impactful arrival to the San Diego staff might be Steve Fairchild, who was brought in as a senior offensive assistant. A former offensive coordinator for the Rams and Bills, Fairchild will assist Turner and Hunter in working in some wrinkles for a unit that became predictable at times last season. Fairchild has worked with Philip Rivers in the past and will try to help the QB bounce back from a turnover-prone 2011 campaign.
