While he’s spent his time in the NFL on defense, one of Chargers head coach Brandon Staley’s most important jobs is to further develop young quarterback Justin Herbert.

To that end, the club signed center Corey Linsley, who Staley said should help give Los Angeles a “winning edge.” But the team’s larger offensive philosophy will also be a significant factor in determining success.

Staley hired former Saints quarterbacks coach Joe Lombardi to be the team’s offensive coordinator, and New Orleans has employed a variety of personnel groupings to keep defenses off-balance. While many teams stick with using three wide receiver, one tight end sets the vast majority of the time, the Saints mix up what they do more than many.
