In an emotional day in San Diego, the Chargers have officially retired the number 55 from the organization.
Before the home opener against the Tennessee Titans today, Charger great Dan Fouts gave a speech and retired 55 from the team. In honor of Seau's passing, and in memorial to his great years in San Diego.
Seau spent 13 years with the Chargers, 12 of which he was elected to the Pro Bowl.
He was a very active member in the San Diego community even after leaving the team. His impact on the team was both emotional, and statistical in nature. Everyone felt his warm and friendly presence within the team, and was wowed by his magnificent achievements on the field.
He will be always missed by his family, organization, and fan base. He was a great football player and and even better human being.
This season is no doubt a tribute to Seau and what he has done for this team.

Tight end Antonio Gates and running back Ryan Mathews are among the San Diego Chargers' inactives for their game against the Tennessee Titans.

Chargers RB Curtis Brinkley is starting Sunday's game in favor of Ronnie Brown.Fantasy Spin:Brown is on his last legs. Brinkley handled more carries than the veteran in Week 1 but neither did much against the Raiders. Oakland is getting shredded by Reggie Bush Sunday so it's more likely Brown and Brinkley just aren't very good. Only start Brinkley if you're desperate.
Owning Antonio Gates in fantasy means you'll be an expert on the Q/D that shows next to his name all year long. I drafted Gates in the sixth round, so I don't have a huge investment in him. Plus I drafted Fleener as a TE handcuff.Now on to yesterday. Here is a timeline of how Gates' impact transpired:8:00a - Initial check/review of lineup. Proceed to watch pregames...

On Sunday, he surpassed that mark by becoming a focal point of the Chargers' offense. Rosario, who hadn't recorded a touchdown catch since 2009 when he was a member of the Carolina Panthers, was on the receiving end of a career-high...
Yesterday's game against the San Diego Chargers was really ugly, but it wasn't without a few bright spots. My post-game recap was pretty gloomy, so now it's time for a few reasons for optimism.
Jake Locker's mobility was evident again on a big scramble to convert third down. That play also drew a stupid personal foul penalty and sparked a scoring drive...
Well, this one didn't start pretty and it didn't end pretty. The Chargers took the opening kickoff for a touchdown, then scored on their second possession on a short field after an ugly Jake Locker overthrown interception. A three-and-out later, the Chargers were up 17-0 and it was a long day for the Tennessee Titans in their first regular season visit to San Diego since...
