Chargers Tight Ends: A Tale of Two Legends

More than just a blocker who occasionally catches a pass, the San Diego Chargers have a legacy of turning a tight end into a primary offensive weapon. It all began in 1979 when the Chargers drafted the six-foot-five, 250 pound Kellen Winslow out of Missouri 13th overall. What they got was a large, agile player with good hands who fit perfectly into the Chargers "Air Coryell" offense...

Should the San Diego Chargers consider a d-lineman in free agency?

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. In fact, we’ve seen a few examples in recent years where...

San Diego Chargers: Biggest Draft Day Regret In Franchise History

The San Diego Chargers have been guilty of getting rid of or negligent in drafting Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks. Just look at their history: they traded the rights to Eli Manning, released Drew Brees and passed on selecting Tom Brady in the NFL Draft. The common thread between all three is the ability to play at their best in big games. How often does a franchise regret their...

The San Diego Chargers can’t pass up on this offensive lineman in free agency

It’s a tough position to evaluate. There aren’t a lot of stats to help with the cause. Styles of play can sometimes skew opinions. And the difference between a win and a loss on any given play isn’t always black and white. But what is clear is that it’s a vital position. Whether a team is run-first or pass-happy, the ability to control the line of scrimmage is the key to...

Former Oakland Raiders CEO Amy Trask isn’t only among the most respected football people out there, she’s in the know when it comes to what’s happening around the National Football League.

San Diego Chargers 2015 NFL Off-Season Preview

Positions of Need Guard Chad Rinehart and Johnnie Troutman were awful last season at guard for the Chargers, grading out 73rd and 77th respectively out of 78 eligible. Chris Watt, a 2014 3rd round pick, was decent as a rookie on 496 snaps at both guard and center. He should have a bigger role in 2015 and could easily be a future starter, but they need someone else who can start opposite...

New Poll in San Diego Appears to be Unfriendly to the Chargers

On the heels of the San Diego Chargers setting forth a plan to potentially build a two-team stadium with the Oakland Raiders in Los Angeles, it appears that citizens of that southernmost California city aren’t exactly too happy with the team (h/t U-T San Diego).  The small sample size aside, this has to be alarming to Chargers owner Dean Spanos and company.

What if the Colts drafted Ryan Leaf?

It was the greatest question in draft history: take the sure thing in Tennessee’s Peyton Manning, or the unfathomable physical talent in Washington State’s Ryan Leaf? The Colts, picking first, decided not to take any chances and nabbed Manning. I don’t think they have any regrets.
