Good morning. Gregg Rosenthal of believes San Diego Chargers tight end Ladarius Green will take a significant step in production in the upcoming season.

Rosenthal writes that Green will benefit from the possible increase in the use of the no-huddle by new offensive coordinator Frank Reich, and says Green already is one of the best players in the NFL at his position.

Showing he does not lack for confidence, Brandon Flowers tells the NFL Network that he’s the best cornerback in football in this video.

Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego writes about the recruitment of Flowers by San Diego players.

In this ESPN Insider piece Insider, ESPN NFL handicapper Dave Tuley says the Chargers are one of the best value picks, with the team’s odds of winning the Super Bowl going up from 30-1 to 40-1.

Gil Brandt of ranks Ben Roethlisberger No. 1 among the quarterbacks in the 2004 draft class. Philip Rivers comes in at No. 3.
