He doesn't garner the attention of the cameras or desire the microphones for postgame interviews.While his arrival to the team last season may not have been received with a wealth of buzz by fans, his...

The good, the bad, and the ugly from the Chargers regular season dress rehearsal

Here is the good, bad and the ugly from the Chargers 21-7 preseason loss to the 49ers.

For the first time in a while, Chargers’ defense leads inspired performance in S.F.

The Mike McCoy era, thus far, has been marked by offensive excellence and defensive inconsistency. The unit headed by Philip Rivers has only added weapons and figures to be one of the best in the NFL this season. The defense? This side has been well below average week in and week out, and after a lackluster showing in Seattle, concerns have already started looming among the fan base...

The Chargers 2013 second-round pick, Manti Te’o, caught another tough break Friday night spraining his left foot.

Kavell Conner visits San Diego today, should wind up a Charger

Former Indianapolis Colt, Kavell Conner, is scheduled to visit San Diego today. I watched Conner dominate in 2008 and 2009 at Clemson University and he has been nothing but a solid pro ever since. Signing Conner will not be a “sexy” move, but not unlike Donald Brown last night, Telesco is bolstering the depth on his roster. As an inside linebacker, the former Clemson Tiger had...
