Malcom Floyd back for the Bolts in 2014, helps take pressure off Allen

One of the biggest offseason question marks for the Chargers this year appears to be resolved and ready for 2014. Malcom Floyd, M80, is expected to be on the field for the Bolts this year. After a vicious shot against the Eagles in week 2 of last season, Floyd hasn’t been on the field, and his future has very much been in question (see below). This is great news for the Chargers...

Predicting the Chargers Wins and Losses: Game by Game

I wrote this article last year and emerged a mediocre 8-8. Similarly, the Chargers have been relatively ordinary themselves with records of 9-7, 7-9, 8-8, and 9-7 over the past four seasons, respectively. Granted, a late-season five-game winning streak earned them a wildcard spot and the surprise win (yes, surprise, I've been a fan way too long!) over the Cincinnati Bengals was an...

Weekend full of good news for the Chargers (and emerging Butler contract details)

Ever since San Diego’s season ended in mid-January, there has not been much to smile about around Murphy Canyon Rd. From the injury saga that is Danario Alexander’s knee, to Malcolm Floyd’s reportedly career-threatening neck problems, to Donald Butler’s high price tag, the offseason started ice cold in San Diego. However, in the past 72 hours, the news has been nothing but...

Monday Draft sleeper: Martavis Bryant to replace Alexander?

With the combine in full swing, we now have a better idea of the measurables for the Chargers potential prospects. Last week, some unfortunate news was released regarding Danario Alexander and his future in San Diego. Baring a miracle, it appears as though Alexander will not be on the field for the Bolts in 2014. With Malcolm Floyd’s injury leaving his season in question, and Eddie...

Are any San Diego Chargers involved in the 10 biggest NFL Combine storylines ever?

For the most part, the NFL’s annual Scouting Combine is a snoozer. It’s a bunch of wannabe pro football players running around in shorts, doing silly drills that have nothing to do with playing the sport. But every once in a while, there’s a break in the monotony. On rare occasions, those who are forced to watch the drudgery of shuttle drills, bench press reps and 40-yard dashes...

The top 10 free agent tight ends: San Diego’s strong suit

Fortunately for San Diego, one position the Chargers do not need any help at is tight end. Not only is America’s Finest City home to one of the all-time greats in Antonio Gates, but heir apparent, Ladarius Green, looks like the next big thing at the position. Built in a similar fashion to the likes of Jimmy Graham and Julius Thomas, the 6’6” 240 pound Louisiana-Lafayette product...

Danario Alexander cannot catch a break

In what is certainly a tough pill to swallow, a former Chargers wide receiver is struggling with another injury issue. Danario Alexander, set to be a free agent this offseason after two seasons with San Diego, recently went under the knife to repair and reconstruct his ACL. Unfortunately for the former Missouri Tiger, the latest batch of news is severely troubling. Following his...

Top 10 free agent wide receivers in 2014: Nicks to the Bolts?

Personally, I am a fan of adding wide receivers via the draft instead of free agency. Nine times out of 10, teams overpay for the production they get at the position. However, as mentioned by Ethan Castle on Monday, I think Hakeem Nicks may be the difference maker to put the Chargers offense over the top. Keenan Allen is the future, but like we have discussed countless times this...

The emerging position of need for San Diego this offseason has become the wide receiver position. Danario Alexander had another knee surgery and his future with the Chargers is in doubt.

Six great fits for San Diego in the offensive free agent class (including Nicks and Starks)

Before the draft, the Chargers will have some shopping to do in free agency. In the 2013 offseason, San Diego made some quality moves on the offensive side of the football that were a large part in their surprising success. For the Chargers to sustain success, they will need to find more bargains (like Danny Woodhead in 2013) in the upcoming free agency frenzy. Running back will...

Chargers wide receiver woes could be solved by CFL star

When the San Diego Chargers were eliminated from the playoffs four weeks ago, we imagined the biggest offseason storylines would involve Ken Whisenhunt and areas of improvement on defense. However, we did not know the wide receiver position, one appearing extremely deep at the end of 2013, would become an issue for the Chargers this February. The Chargers have the foundation at the...
