This weekend, the Chargers took a big home opening win against the Tennessee Titans. The Chargers didn't let the Titans offense move whatsoever and is emerging to be one of the best defenses the team has seen in several years.  Not only did they just beat the Titans at home, but all other AFC West teams lost in their week two games.  Kansas City losing on the road to the Buffalo Bills, Oakland losing big in Miami, and Denver losing on the big stage on Monday night to Atlanta.  Not just for the simple pleasure of seeing the other teams lose, the losses of other West teams places the Bolts in the number one spot with momentum heavily in their favor. All signs are pointing to a rather weak AFC West this year (compared to years past). For fantasy owners, QB Philip Rivers came through big time this weekend. Throwing for 284 yards and 3 touchdowns. Manyof the Charger faithful end up picking Rivers and this weekend, they should be rather pleased and excited for what is in store. ...

Play time is over for the Chargers as real season begins

Now, I know you had a nice long summer to loaf around on the couch downing Cheetos and playing Xbox. You’re probably still having trouble getting up so early in the morning to catch your bus, and the first two weeks of the new year were pretty much walkthroughs to get you back into the swing of things. But don’t think that acing your first tests against a rebuilding Oakland Raiders...

San Diego Chargers: Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#7)

Last week: 8 (+1) Record: 2-0 No, I’m not convinced the Chargers have suddenly become good in the 1st half of the season. The Raiders and the Titans suck. They’ll have a test this week when Atlanta comes to town. That being said, I think this is still the favorite in the AFC West. The Broncos are not a finished product, as you saw in Monday Night, and they have a tougher schedule...

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Titans @ Chargers 9/16/2012

The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly   Tennessee 10 @ San Diego 38   By Eric Judd   @ericjuddTSHQ     The Good Rosario. That’s spelled R-O- Dante Rosario. Dante Rosario might have earned himself the most money during week 2. Replacing, or even imitating Antonio Gates, has been the Holy Grail of Tight Ends. Not only was Rosario able to produce in place of Gates, he was able to produce...

Atlanta Falcons (2-0) at San Diego Chargers (2-0)

Atlanta Falcons (2-0) at San Diego Chargers (2-0) The Chargers are one of just six 2-0 teams left in the NFL. Have they conquered their early season woes? They certainly look good.
