List Rules Please rank the players based only on their time with the Chargers

A list of the best San Diego Chargers of all time. The San Diego Chargers have one of the most star-crossed histories in the NFL. This isn't for a lack of great players. The Chargers have had some of the best players of all time on their roster. When the Chargers have been great, the players have been some of the best in franchise history. But for one reason or another, the Chargers haven't been able to breakthrough and win a Super Bowl. The Chargers are known for having some of the best offensive teams in football. When the best players in Chargers history are high flying like Dan Fouts, LaDainian Tomlinson, Lance Alworth, Kellen Winslow and Charlie Joiner, then offense is clearly a priority. All but Tomlinson are in the Hall of Fame and when the time comes, don't be surprise to see him get inducted as well. 

That doesn't mean that the Chargers don't have some of the best defensive players as well. Junior Seau was a 12-time Pro Bowler who is one of the best linebackers ever. Seau was one of the toughest players ever to play and is still a popular Chargers player, maybe even the greatest linebacker player of all time.

This is a list of the best San Diego Chargers. If you notice someone who is missing from this list of all time Chargers, feel free to add him. Vote or rerank this list of the greatest Chargers ever according to who you think should be considered the best in franchise history.
