Everything you need to know about the Chargers needs entering the draft

Let me take a moment before I begin this article to thank a coach. I’m not talking about Mike McCoy, Ken Whisenhunt, or Pagano. I’m talking about the one man who saved not only Philip Rivers’ life, but also Ryan Mathews’ body. I’m talking about the one and only, Joe D’Alessandris. For those of you who may not know, Coach Joe was hired last offseason to be the Chargers’...

Chargers go hunting for diamond in the rough with Brandon Ghee

In 2013, Tom Telesco made very few bad decisions. His first three draft picks as a general manager all contributed at a high level on the field, and appear to have the Chargers primed to be competitive for years to come. Free agent additions like Danny Woodhead, King Dunlap, and Chad Rinehart all outperformed the contracts they were given by San Diego. However, there is one smudge...

NFL Free agent primer: The 10 best at each position

Today, the Chargers and Tom Telesco can begin the pursuit of finding those final pieces to the puzzle in San Diego. The Bolts had an incredible run in 2013, but are still a few defensive players away from being a real championship contender. Last year, Telesco could have easily been named executive of the year with his first draft and free agent class. Danny Woodhead, King Dunlap...

Top 10 free agent offensive linemen: Chargers need depth

The past season couldn’t have been more encouraging for the San Diego Chargers offensive line. A unit that finished near the bottom of the league in 2012 bounced back to have a great year thanks to the additions of some new pieces. Right tackle, D.J. Fluker, will be a staple on the line for years to come while King Dunlap was perhaps the biggest surprise at left tackle. The line...

Reevaluating Tom Telesco’s first free agency

We’ve entered the awkward stage of the football season, when there’s not a lot of on-field action, but not too much off-field news either. It’s what leads people, both fans and media, to talk about things like the weather in New York/New Jersey nonstop. Sure there’s rumors about things like possible changes to the extra point and some game is being played in Hawaii on Sunday...

Offensive cover32 awards for the 2013 San Diego Chargers

The 2013-14 season for the San Diego Chargers was one that was filled with surpassed expectations.  Not many expected the Chargers to make a playoff run, and even though their season ended on Sunday evening at the hands of the division rival Denver Broncos, this was still a season to look back on with great pleasure.

LT King Dunlap likely to be back for Chargers

Indications are that Chargers left tackle King Dunlap will return for Sunday's game against the New York Giants after missing three games with a neck injury. Dunlap's potential return means the Chargers (5-7) could have their opening day lineup on the offensive line intact for the first time since Sept. 22. With Dunlap back, rookie D.J. Fluker would move from left tackle...

Eddie Royal has been on the injury report for a couple weeks now but he’s always been able to play despite not practicing. After sustaining a chest injury in the team’s stunning win versus the Kansas City Chiefs, Royal will miss his first game this year. In his absence look for the team to give Seyi Ajirotutu more snaps.

Chargers' King Dunlap still on the mend

Left tackle King Dunlap has suffered two concussions and a neck injury this season, so you can understand if the San Diego Chargers want to make sure he’s fully healthy before letting him take the field with a helmet and shoulder pads again. “They’re just being a little more cautious with it, with everything [that’s happened],” Dunlap said.

The San Diego Chargers (4-6) will face the Kansas City Chiefs (9-1) who are coming off their first loss of the season last week to the now AFC West leading Denver Broncos.  The San Diego Chargers, losers of three in a row, with playoffs hopes looking dim, will look to upset one of the NFL’s best teams.  I’ll just say this right now, the Chiefs play the Broncos next week and...

It’s no surprise the Chargers were able to move the ball with the Broncos, because their rate of moving the chains is 2nd only to Denver (82%). Their defense, which allows opponents to move...
