In case you’re in the need of an update on a meaningless game, the San Diego Chargers are trailing the Seattle Seahawks 7-3 at halftime.
Here’s a couple observations:
The Seahawks defensive backs were very physical with the Chargers’ receivers despite it being a preseason game. It could have something to do with the fact that the Seahawks’ secondary gave up 40 yards on Philip Rivers’ first three passes.
While we’re on the topic of Rivers, he seemed much more comfortable in the pocket with the Chargers’ improved offensive line. Rivers finished 5 of 6 for 45 yards. Also the line opened up a couple good running lanes for Ryan Mathews who finished with 19 yards on 3 carries.
Okay, enough analyzing of the game that won’t mean anything once the season starts; at least in regards to win-loss records. The game will serve as a try-out for many players who will ultimately be cut from one team, only to be signed by another. But that will only happen if these players can impress their futur...

Via the U-T San Diego’s Michael Gehlken, running back Danny Woodhead and and cornerback/fill-in strong safety Marcus Gilchrist will also miss San Diego Chargers’ preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks. Gilchrist will be sitting out due to a hamstring issue and will be replaced in the game by Darrell Stuckey. Woodhead has been held out of practice since Friday with an unknown...
The San Diego Chargers have placed undrafted rookie linebacker Devan Walker on injured-reserve with a knee injury, the team announced on Wednesday afternoon.
If it’s anything like the other three Chargers’ playerss who’ve had “knee injuries” then that probably means he tore his ACL. The Chargers also lost Melvin Ingram and Jonas Mouton to knee injuries. The team also lost...
Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michaels has been making a lot of noise at training camp, and coach Pete Carroll and his staff wanted to put him to the test. Michael got his share of touches in Seattle’s 31-10 win over the San Diego Chargers.
King Dunlap or Max Starks?
One of the veteran newcomers will become the San Diego Chargers' left tackle, charged with protecting Philip Rivers' blind side.
Dunlap, signed as a free agent from the Philadelphia Eagles, has gotten the majority of snaps with the first team so far in training camp.
Starks hasn't been given the inside track even though he won two Super Bowl...
Seahawks have released wide receiver Early Doucet after he struggled with an
injury in his first practice with the team, according to Darin Gantt of NBC Sports. The team stated that their reason for releasing Doucet so soon after
acquiring him is because he “failed to disclose a physical injury” prior to
signing his contract. It is currently unknown what that injury...

Yada Yada Percy Harvin‘s hurt yada yada. Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, where was I?
Ah yes, the Seattle Seahawks wide receivers that will be healthy from week 1 forward and their projected stats lines.
They may not have the flashy big play ability of Harvin for the majority of the season (and potentially longer), but there are no shortage of stars in...
Danario Alexander flashed signs of brilliance last season and emerged as one of the top mid-season fantasy free agent acquisitions after catching 7 touchdowns in just 10 games with the Chargers.
His breakout performance in 2012 made Alexander a viable number two fantasy wide receiver in drafts this season and a favorite of many to be one of the top breakout WR’s of the draft.
Let There be Depth!
I don’t care that for the most part I was watching second and third string players. I don’t care that this game meant absolutely nothing. It was Seattle Seahawks football, and for the first time in over six months it graced the screen of my dirty, dust-covered television.
The Seahawks kicked off their preseason last night with a week 1 romping...
When Manti Te’o was taken in the first round of the draft, it was a surprise to everyone. Between his situations with the mysterious, phantom girlfriend coupled with his weak performance at the BCS Championship game, it seemed that Te’o’s draft stock had plummeted. There’s always a team that’s willing to take a chance, and the San Diego Chargers were just that team.
Fight To The Death
Going into the week one preseason match up between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Diego Chargers, an important position battle is on the line that has gotten very little media play.
What happens if Russell Wilson goes down?
For a team with Super Bowl aspirations, and an offensive attack that can lead to a few hits on the franchise quarterback, the need to have...

The title of this article may seem ludicrous to some of you, but hang in there and let me explain the eerie similarities between the two clubs. Image: USATSI
