The board of directors at the San Diego Hall of Champions has decided to forego the normal voting process and induct Junior Seau into the Breitbard Hall of Fame on Feb. 25. Candidates normally aren't eligible to be voted in until two years after their careers end or their deaths. Seau, the hard-hitting, first-pumping leader of the Chargers for 13 of his 20 NFL seasons, committed suicide May 2. He grew up in suburban Oceanside and was a star at Southern California. Denise Cooper, president of the Hall of Champions, says Seau ''was pretty special and we wanted to do this immediately.'' The Chargers retired Seau's No. 55 on Sunday. The other inductees will be announced next week.

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...

Curtis Brinkley Starting For Chargers

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.
