What to watch Sunday!? Seattle Seahawks vs. San Diego Chargers Preview

Seahawks Really Should Go 2-0 The NFL Season marches on and your 2014 Seattle Seahawks look to start the year a perfect 2-0 this Sunday as they travel to sunny San Diego to face the Chargers.

The top 10 defensive ends in the draft: Chargers could add a pass rusher late

The defensive end in the 3-4 defense goes a bit unnoticed compared to the role the position plays in the traditional 4-3. In a 3-4, these players have to eat up blockers on certain plays in order for the OLB to have an easier time rushing the passer, while other times the defensive end needs to tee off on the quarterback. The Chargers are equipped with two pretty darn good 3-4 defensive...

Top 10 Free Agent Defensive linemen: Could Raji replace Cam Thomas?

One of lesser addressed points of the 2013 season in San Diego was the unmet expectations of Corey Liuget and Kendall Reyes to develop into a dominate tandem. While Liuget had a good season, some would say Reyes had a disappointing year. I, however, am not one of those people. In a 3-4 defense, the defensive ends are some of the lesser appreciated players on the field, and I think...

Monday’s Mock: Chargers seek next Jamal Williams at NT

The NFL draft this year is loaded with talented defensive lineman. While Corey Liuget and Kendall Reyes are hopefully becoming staples at defensive end, the Chargers have questions at the all-important nose tackle position. Cam Thomas is expected to become an unrestricted free agent in March. The Chargers ranked in the bottom half of the NFL in 2013 in both sacks and forced fumbles...

Reasons to trust defensive coordinator, John Pagano

During a surprisingly successful season for the San Diego Chargers, one of the things that did not go well was the overall play of the defense. The Chargers ranked 23rd in the league in yards allowed this season, but only 11th in points allowed. That doesn’t tell the whole story, as Football Outsiders’ DVOA, evaluating efficiency on a play-by-play basis had San Diego 32nd in...

San Diego Chargers: 2013 Week 10 NFL Power Rankings (#15)

Last week: 14 (-1) Record: 4-4 The Chargers are legitimately a few plays away from 7-1. They blew a big lead to the Texans week 1. They lost on a late touchdown in Tennessee. And last week, they were a half yard away from the winning touchdown. However, they are currently at 4-4 and their schedule gets tougher from here on out, including 4 games against Denver and Kansas City. They...

Chargers rack up 11 sacks in 27-17 win over Jets

One after another, the San Diego Chargers barreled into Greg McElroy and slammed him to the turf. A whopping 11 times. That's a lot of bruises for the New York Jets' new - and sore - starting quarterback. Led by Kendall Reyes' 3 1/2 sacks, the Chargers made things downright miserable for McElroy, tying the team record for sacks in a 27-17 victory Sunday. ''...

Chargers Drop Jets In Snoozer: 5 Things We Learned

San Diego Chargers: Week 12 NFL Power Rankings (#17)

Last week: 17 (+0) Record: 4-6 I think it’s time for the Chargers to go on their annual late season run. Unfortunately, just like the last 2 seasons, probably all this late season run is going to end up doing is saving Norv Turner’s and AJ Smith’s job and not actually help them make the playoffs. This week, they play Baltimore, who is overrated and generally struggles on the...

San Diego Chargers: Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#8)

The Chargers barely beat an overrated Raiders team that was shooting themselves in the foot all night. Yep, it’s the same old early season Chargers. That game reminds me of their close early season wins against bad teams last year, Miami, Denver, Minnesota, and Kansas City, all by 10 or fewer points. Playing a real team next week in the Titans, they might not find themselves so...

NFL Training Camp Preview: Chargers, Raiders, and Ravens

There are countless differences between every NFL team and their approach to the season. From play calling philosophies to dress codes, every team does things differently. The one common denominator for all 32 NFL teams? Pressure. It may take different forms: some teams, like Oakland, need to show their trade for Carson Palmer was the cost, while others, like San Diego need desperately...

San Diego Chargers Front Seven Will Wreak Havoc for Opposing QB’s

The Sand Diego Chargers defense has undoubtedly went over a huge makeover in the past two seasons. Adding multiple players through the draft and free agency. What stands out the most about this particular Chargers defense is the mixture of experience and youth, speed and size, and overall raw talent that the unit has. Last year wasn’t the worst of statistical seasons for the Chargers...

Smith true to his word with defensive draft

April is often called the liars month in the NFL, as so much disinformation is dispersed that it can make one head's swim. But Chargers general manager A. J.
