TOJ – Secondary Grade Sheet (Week 5)

Another week, another load of secondary film to watch and cringe. I had faith in this unit before the season, but injuries and a drastic drop-off in safety play has made this, well, not a good time. Last Sunday’s bomb dropped by the Chargers was definitely the most painful one of the season so far, and that’s saying a lot after sitting through the second half versus Green Bay...

How the Chargers can beat Seattle: Get the ball to Ladarius Green

It’s entirely too early to say so, but Sunday’s game for San Diego is just about as close to a must-win as you can get in the second week of the season. The Bolts will host the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks in their home opener, and are in dire need of a victory. Since 1990, teams that start 0-2 only make the playoffs about 12 percent of the time. Seattle’s “Legion...

Behind Enemy Lines: Can the Chargers pull off a must-win miracle vs. Seahawks?

On Sunday the Seattle Seahawks will line up against the San Diego Chargers. The last time these two hooked up in the preseason Seattle blew them out of the water 41-14 in a game that I was far, far, too drunk to remember, so I went and found an expert to talk to about how the game might go this time around. I spoke with Alex Cusick of cover32′s Chargers site and asked a few questions...

Thursday went just about as well as any Seahawks fan could hope for. In fact, to toot my own horn, I called a score of 35-17. A friend in Dallas asked me what I though the spread would be, then politely indicated that I was overzealous. I repeated the same conversation at my gym to similar response. Oh heavens no! It must be closer! That’s what all the ESPN experts say! Okay, everybody...

5 Reasons Why the Arizona Cardinals Will Lose Monday

We have to do our due diligence on San Diego and give five reasons why the Cardinals will lose to the Chargers. We don’t want to talk about them but here they are. 1.

Target Analysis: Week 1

With uncertainty at running back in fantasy football, tight ends and wide receivers might be the most important sections of a fantasy football lineup this season. The popularization of the Zero RB concept places extra importance on drafting pass catchers who are capable of exceeding their ADP and finding this year's equivalent of Josh Gordon and Alshon Jeffery. That requires...

The San Diego Chargers took a step forward last year and made the playoffs for the first time since 2009 under new coach Mike McCoy. Largely due to Ken Whisenhunt's new offensive system reinvigorating the Chargers offense and reviving Philip Rivers’ career. The Chargers’ success lead to top ten seasons from both Rivers and running back Ryan Mathews, who completed his...

Five Tight Ends To Target Late In Fantasy Drafts

A viable strategy in fantasy football is to wait on the tight end position. In fact, if you don’t draft one of the big three that is Jimmy Graham, Julius Thomas and Rob Gronkowski, you should wait until the draft is in the double digit rounds to pick up a tight end. It would probably be wise to pick up two in this scenario. This tactic allows owners to focus on picking running...
