If there is an NFL season in 2011 (and as of the afternoon of Tuesday, April 12 that's still a Marcus McNeill-sized if), the Chargers know who they'll play in the exhibition schedule.
San Diego would open on August 11 at 5 p.m. at Qualcomm Stadium against the Seattle Seahawks. Even though that's a Thursday night, ESPN is bringing its Monday Night Football crew to town for the nationally-televised event.
The specific dates of the remaining games have yet to be determined, but the Chargers play at Dallas in week 2, in Arizona in week 3, and back at home against San Francisco to finish the pre-season.
The exhibition season begins on Sunday, August 7 with the Hall of Fame Game. The Bears and Rams play at 5 p.m. on NBC.
Keep in mind, this is all tentative. The timing of the pre-season could be affected if a new labor deal is not worked out soon.
