[QUOTE]Chargers QB Philip Rivers was sacked four times in his first seven drop backs against the Cardinals Saturday night. Should the Chargers be worried about their offensive line?

Well, in my dynasty league I'm going to be slotted into Rivers or Romo unless I make a move for Rodgers/Peyton or trade down for Ryan. Lots of R-named QBs... To be fair, I naturally assumed Rivers was going to have a slight drop-off this seasoin with the Chargers D probably being a bit better, as with everyone in their division slighttly improving (I do think Denver looks like a team with 'long drive ending ina FG' written all over them).. Everyone seems a bit down on him and Romo, really. I dunno. To me, both look about the same... e.g., solid TE, solid running game, good but not overtwhelming WRs... I tend to think one of the two, Romor or Rivers, will have a better year than Peyton, just not sure which.
I tend to think this favors Rivers in some sens:
1) Weaker division teams meaning easier matchups
2) Teams will still respect LT until otherwise proven
1) Tougher division, but could be playing from behind
2) Most teams will probably make Romo beat them
An O-line issue might be a difference maker... e.g., I'm already leary about Peyton for similar reasons...
