If you like omens, here’s one to hearten Seahawks fans รข?? the last time Seattle opened the preseason against the Chargers on the road the Seahawks went on to win the Super Bowl.

Of course, the Chargers were in San Diego in 2013. This year’s preseason opener, which kicks off Sunday at 5 p.m., will instead be at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., the Chargers’ home for the next three years until they move into a new stadium in Inglewood.

While the game will mark the beginning of a new era for the Chargers it will also mark a shifting in the player evaluation for the Seahawks coaches and general manager John Schneider, who by the end of the month will have to pare the 90-man training camp roster down to the regular season limit of 53.

Coach Pete Carroll said this week he expects that job to be harder this year than it has been the last few seasons thanks to a roster that he thinks is better from top to bottom than the last few seasons.

There’s a number of guys that have playability that we’re going to have to sort out. There’s competitive opportunities for guys to make space for themselves, too, and all that adds to making us better and so we’re really fired up about that.”
