The San Diego Chargers and their many faces

The San Diego Chargers have begun the season at 2-3.  They beat the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles, but lost to the Houston Texans, the Tennessee Titans, and the Oakland Raiders.  Looking at who they have beat and lost to, it looks as if the Chargers have had a pretty bad season.  However, the losses to the Texans and Titans could have gone either way and for most...

Chargers and Colts – Who Has The Edge

Young Talent and “Old” Talent   It might not hold the same intensity level of the Patriots rivalry but the Colts and Chargers have had their share of climatic games over the past decade.  Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has played a major role in many of the Chargers/Colts recent matchups and he acknowledges the new faces.  “Obviously there’s some veterans that have...

The Chargers Offense – Pick Your Poison

An undeniable strength of the 2013 San Diego Chargers through the first five games of the season has been Philip Rivers and the passing game.  Rivers has twice won the AFC Offensive Player of the Year Award and has completed 140 of 190 passes (73.7%) for 1,610 yards, 13 touchdowns and a passer rating of 110.6; an MVP caliber season if it weren’t for someone named “Peyton....

ESPN, sponsors help Chargers lift blackout

The San Diego Chargers have been spared the embarrassment of a local TV blackout of Monday night's game against the Indianapolis Colts after ESPN and some local sponsors guaranteed the purchase of approximately 8,500 tickets. ESPN says it will give a portion of the tickets to military and charitable organizations. The Chargers had received a 24-hour extension from the NFL before...

Brown wants to build on breakout game

Standing at his Chargers locker after practice Vincent Brown picked up his last piece of clothing tugged the sweatshirt over his head and turned around. In an instant four video cameras from the local TV stations were a foot from his face. Welcome back. “Once you have a big game everybody wants to come and talk to you” Brown said later after the scrum had broken up. He related...

San Diego Chargers Monday Night Football preview

After a gut wrenching loss late Sunday night against the Raiders, the Chargers now must refocus and go against one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL.That quarterback is Andrew Luck. He's been nothing short of spectacular this year, and I'd argue he's already a top 5 QB in the league, yet is still underrated. He's really fun to watch. With most of the pressure...

Seau in first Polynesian Hall class

The late Junior Seau was inducted into the San Diego Chargers Hall of Fame in 2011, and the linebacker now is being honored in his home state of Hawaii. On Wednesday the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame announced its inaugural induction class, and Seau made the cut along with six other past and present players and coaches of Polynesian descent.

We're Up All Night To Get Sucky

January, 2008.  Every time someone mentions that the 2006 team was our best shot to win it all, I remind them of how soft that team was in the head.  They were far from poised and resilient and it showed.  Of course, if they had just kept feeding LaDainian on 1/14/07 maybe things would have turned out differently.  One of the many cruel ironies of the San Diego Chargers is that...

ESPN helps avoid first MNF blackout since 1999 season

With 9000 tickets left to sell as of Thursday there’s no way the Chargers could have avoided a blackout of their game against the Colts without financial assistance. (Or without buying some of the tickets on their own.) With no blackout of any Monday Night Football game since the last week of the 1999 season ESPN stepped up to preserve a streak that predates the movement of MNF...

Colts vs. Chargers: Three Key Player Matchups

Andrew Luck vs. Eric WeddleAndrew Luck has received plenty of attention this year, but Chargers All-Pro safety Eric Weddle has not. We are only five games into the NFL schedule but Weddle, who is usually a “stat sheet stuffer”, only has tackles and a handful of defended passes to his statistical line thus far. No interceptions, no sacks, no fumbles. However, make no mistake about...

Indianapolis Colts at San Diego Chargers: 2013 Week 6 NFL Pick

Indianapolis Colts (4-1) at San Diego Chargers (2-3) I was dead wrong about the Colts this season. In my defense, the logic was sound. The Colts were not an 11 win team last year. 7 of their 11 wins came by a touchdown or less against a team that finished with a record of 7-9 or worse. They had a terrible offensive line and defense and finished the season 25th in DVOA, which I think...
