The start of a new season is when fans, media, and players boost their teams up and create as much hype as possible when it comes to why "they" are going to come out on top.Of course, some of the back-and-forth talk is legitimate, but most of it is related to teams with question marks who are trying to have fun and intimidate their opponents.You do not hear the Packers or Patriots, for example, talking about how they are yet again going to advance in the playoffs.On the other hand, in a division with plenty of uncertainty such as the AFC West, there has been a lot of back and forth chit chat about which team will come out on top.The Kansas City Chiefs have been the bandwagon favorite for months, the Denver Broncos have had their horn tooted due to Peyton Manning being the difference, the Oakland Raiders have heard analysts saying they wouldn't be surprised if this team was in it until the end, and the San Diego Chargers have been the franchise for years that has enough...
BEST OF MAXIM

This is the time of year every team loves its draft class. After all, the players haven’t proven them wrong yet. But coaches in San Diego are positively raving about first-rounder Melvin Ingram. Some thought the South Carolina product might have been the best pass-rusher in the draft, and the Chargers got him 18th overall. While he [...]
A change in the injured reserve rule will aid a fallen Chargers receiver this year.
Prior to the rule change, when an NFL team placed a player on the Injured Reserve, they were unable to play for the entire year. Now, the new rule states that if a player has sustained an injury, he can return to the team and fully participate before week eight of the regular season. However...
It's a question that probably swirls around constantly in the mind of Chargers' head coach Norv Turner: "What can (Ronnie) Brown do for you?"
The answer better be "a lot more than we originally expected" because Brown's performance as Ryan Matthews' replacement as the starter at running back could be the difference in the Chargers playing into...
Okay, so the ‘sexy six’ Tight Ends are all off the board; Graham, Gronkowski, Davis, Hernandez, Pettigrew, and Witten. Not what do you do? First don’t panic and settle for the two ‘old’ standbys, Tony Gonzalez and Antonio Gates. Gonzo will probably revert back to his 2010 numbers, especially if the Falcons can’t get any [...]
San Diego halfback Ryan Mathews (clavicle) participated in individual drills Wednesday, according to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune.Fantasy Spin:San Diego will hold it's first official practice Thursday. Mathews has insisted he'll be ready Week 1, but we doubt the Chargers will play him. Week 2 is an option but we don't expect him to handle a full workload...
As we count the milliseconds before Sunday’s full slate of action, it is essential that we examine the sleepers that are most likely to help fantasy owners prevail in week 1. While the sleepers in this column will be proportioned based upon the current events of each particular week, it just so happens that we currently have a preponderance of injuries to some high profile WRs...
The San Diego Chargers' window to win a championship is closing rapidly and Rivers' not playing at his best is only going to add to the fire. If Rivers continues to have this erratic play, then the Chargers will not succeed down the stretch.
It’s now official, San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews will not play in his team’s season opener against the Oakland Raiders. Mathews is recovering from a broken clavicle and although he returned to the practice filed this week, he has not been cleared for contact. This is an obvious disappointment for Mathews as well as his fantasy owners that we expecting big things this season...
San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he will miss Monday night's season opener against the Oakland Raiders as he is still nursing a broken clavicle. Mathews participated in non-contact drills this week for the first time since sustaining the injury in the Chargers' exhibition opener four weeks ago. He has said that he would...
Chargers halfback Ryan Mathews (clavicle) is targeting Week 2 for his return, finally admitting Friday that he won't meet his goal of returning for Week 1, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.Fantasy Spin:We admire Mathews' resolve, but as we've said all along there's nothing he can do to speed up the healing process of his collarbone.
The Chargers returned to practice on Wednesday after an off day. RB Ryan Mathews (broken right clavicle) participated in individual drills without contact for his second straight practice.
Coach Norv Turner, however, indicated Mathews will not play against the Raiders in the season opener on Monday.
Mathews is a big part of what we do, Turner said in regards to Mathews missing...
On November 27, 1960, the Oakland Raiders and the Los Angeles Chargers played their first game in what would become one of the most heated football rivalries in NFL history. Since then the Raiders have moved twice and the Chargers moved to San Diego, but the hatred has always been there. These are the top Raiders/Chargers matchups that have the most significance in Raiders History.
The final game of the season opening weekend of the NFL will not be watched by a ton of people outside the west coast, unless of course you are addicted to watching every game possible.
Many questions both of these quarterbacks in this ball game since one was a former star (Palmer) and many are questioning if the other ever come close to be the same gun-slinger he once was (Rivers...
San Diego Chargers (9-7) (4th seed: loss in first round)
Oakland Raider (7-9)
Denver Broncos (7-9)
Kansas City Chiefs (7-9)
Depending on your definition, this is the NFL’s worst conference, inasmuch as there is not one legitimate playoff team in the mix. I have San Diego winning it by default, but that has a lot more to do with the schedule...
