Chargers Add Potential QB Depth in Chase Rettig

Fourth all-time in passing yardage at BC, Rettig is looking to restart a pro career that was derailed before it got started in 2014.

His most productive college passing season was his 2012 junior year where he racked...

Possible gamesmanship between the Cardinals and Chargers entering week 1?

San Diego’s addition of Ryan Lindley, former quarterback of the Arizona Cardinals, appears to be a natural fit. Lindley attended San Diego State University, has starting experience in the NFL and gives the Chargers the young quarterback with a high ceiling they were looking for in Brad Sorensen. At 25-years old, the newest Charger can take time to learn the offense, but also has...

Signing Ryan Lindley was the Chargers’ best move of the weekend

One of the more disappointing aspects of the preseason for the San Diego Chargers was the play by quarterback, Brad Sorensen. The seventh-round pick in 2013 was a Tom Telesco guy, but didn’t seem to make the leap necessary to be considered a potential “QB of the future” in his second year. At 26-years old, Sorensen would likely have been in his thirties before he ever got the...

Bubble watch: Chargers players in need of a big game against the Cardinals

The last preseason game typically doesn’t mean much for the fans as most of the starters won’t be playing tonight, but for 22 men, this may be the last time they suit up in a Chargers uniform. The Bolts need to trim the roster from 75 to 53 following today’s game against the Arizona Cardinals. It’s important for all bubble players to show their worth with the practice squad...

The San Diego Chargers are likely to improve on their win total from last season

The preseason is really long. As we all wait for real games to start, we can start getting a feel of how the season might play out. Instead of looking at unreliable data from the preseason, places like Football Outsiders use their projected Defense-adjusted Value Over Average metrics to run simulations of the season. The mean wins for the San Diego Chargers after these simulations...

Training camp preview: Chargers QB position is a battle for #2

As far as the quarterback position is concerned, the Chargers are one of the lucky 10 or so franchises with a signal caller capable of winning the big game. Philip Rivers success over the years may be questioned, but there is no doubt in this writer’s mind, #17 is if anything, underrated. The Chargers front man is a winner, and now that he has competent coaching and talent around...

Team needs: Will it be Whitehurst or a rookie in 2014?

After winning the AP Comeback Player of the Year, it is pretty obvious that Philip Rivers isn’t going anywhere. The San Diego signal caller has a lot left in the tank and is more than capable of winning a Super Bowl. While starting quarterback won’t be a position the Chargers worry about for many years, the Bolts enter 2014 with some question marks at the backup position. Charlie...

The Top 10 QB’s in the 2014 Draft: Will the Bolts take one?

Let’s get one thing straight, Philip Rivers is the guy in San Diego. The veteran Pro Bowler looks like he is having fun playing football again for the first time in a long time. He will be the unquestioned starter in the next few years, but at the back end of his prime, and with San Diego having a young team full of talent for the distant future, it may be time for the Chargers...
