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. Good: Corey Liuget After a poor game against Seattle the week before, Corey Liuget took it personal and was a monster on the field. He stacked the stat sheet and proved to be the best player in the game while he was out there.  Liuget had four tackles (two of those tackles for a loss), a strip...

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. For San Diego fans, flashbacks have already started as Te’o missed most of the preseason (and the first three games of the regular season) with a foot sprain last year.

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...

All-22 Analysis - Evaluating the Colts Defense, Week 3.

Peaks and valleys seems to be the theme this year with the Colts, with an impressive first half showing on Sunday completely rendered obsolete in an awful loss at home to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The loss came as a result of some incredibly poor football, whether on offense or defense. The only unit I can assuage of any guilt would be the special teams coverage and return units...

All-22 Analysis - Evaluating the Colts Defense

After watching the Colts crumble to an appalling defeat a week earlier, the performance on Sunday against the Vikings was uplifting. Hope flickers where negativity and pessimism once stood, and that can only be a good thing. While there were positives to take from both sides of the ball, I'm going to focus primarily this year on our defense, leaving offensive questions to those...

8 Non-Starting Players To Watch During Sunday's Game Against the Rams

Everybody is under a microscope in the NFL. Every player gets evaluated before, after, and during games, as well as before, after, and during the season. During the preseason however, this evaluation is going to determine the future of hundreds of players across the league, and the room for error is extremely small. For the Colts, there are probably 25-35 guys who are pretty locked...

Jerrell Freeman: Someone to Keep an Eye On

There are a lot of new players on the Colts. At last count, at least 54 players are either new or have a year or less of experience.  This leads to a lot of moments where I read and update, see a name, and a blank slate just replaces my mind. Never before can I remember mixing up so many names, and being so unfamiliar with a roster.  The roster is filled with no-names, and it...
