Chargers Wire: I wouldn’t say it’s all about the absences of Allen and Williams, but that’s certainly a huge part of it. Without those two on the field, offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi has asked the likes of Josh Palmer, DeAndre Carter, and Michael Bandy to do exactly what Allen and Williams do, and they’ve proven they can’t. Justin Herbert’s injury has played a role, too, as have injuries along the offensive line. Many people want to point the finger at Lombardi, who’s been able to plan either a good run game or a good pass one but never both in the same contest. At the fundamental level, it’s Lombardi’s job to scheme up the talent he has, and instead, he’s asked his replacements to be just as good as the starters. Getting Allen and Williams back on Sunday will be huge.
