It's not as if Randy Moss is the only star receiver the Chargers will face in 2006.

“It's the NFL, man,” free safety Marlon McCree said. “It's not high school or college where you play Florida one week and Vanderbilt the next.”

In the world of NFL receivers, however, a healthy Moss is Florida, Texas, Ohio State and any other powerhouse all wrapped up in one scary silver-and-black package. And to many Chargers fans, their team's secondary has been, well, Vanderbilt.

But that's in the past, according to the Chargers, who will have every opportunity to verify their improvement beginning with Monday night's season opener against Moss and the rest of the Oakland Raiders.

“I feel very confident,” said McCree, a six-year veteran who is the only newcomer starting on the San Diego defense. “I think this secondary's going to do really well. I think we're going to hold up our end of the bargain this year. I think we'll be a big part of why this team has a lot of success in the postseason.”

Said coach Marty Schottenheimer: “I've been very pleased with their development, and the addition of Marlon McCree has been a big part of that.”

McCree has taken over for Bhawoh Jue opposite strong safety Terrence Kiel, who was hampered by injuries last season but showed improved coverage skills this summer. The cornerbacks remain Quentin Jammer and Drayton Florence, with No. 1 draft choice Antonio Cromartie replacing Jamar Fletcher as the nickel back.
