Dynasty Fantasy Football: Future Salary Cap Casualties

Last week we went through some future free agent planning for the 2015 season to give you a heads up on which players have a window to increase their fantasy value while also being able to be currently acquired cheaply. We’re going to keep one eye fixated on the 2015 offseason, looking at three potential candidates who could be future salary cap casualties and the replacement assets...

March Madness pick-up game: Who you got? Gates or Green?

Here’s a question that has stirred some debate amongst us here at cover32_SD. If you played in a pickup basketball game today, who would you pick first between Antonio Gates and Ladarius Green? I think it’s a no brainer with Gates having way more game and experience than Green, but the opposing argument points to Green’s height advantage and younger age as the deciding factor...

Chargers cut McClain, clear $2.5 million in cap space

In a fairly predictable move, the Chargers have cut Le’Ron McClain. #Chargers release fullback Le’Ron McClain, per @UTgehlken. Clears $2.5 million in cap space.

The top 10 free agent tight ends: San Diego’s strong suit

Fortunately for San Diego, one position the Chargers do not need any help at is tight end. Not only is America’s Finest City home to one of the all-time greats in Antonio Gates, but heir apparent, Ladarius Green, looks like the next big thing at the position. Built in a similar fashion to the likes of Jimmy Graham and Julius Thomas, the 6’6” 240 pound Louisiana-Lafayette product...

Fantasy football offseason thoughts

Seattle wrapped up the 2013 season with its dominant win over Denver last weekend. So we’re officially looking ahead to the 2014 season. That includes fantasy football where, just like in the real NFL, there really is no off-season anymore. We’ll revisit fantasy frequently throughout the next several months. But for those who are suffering football withdrawal, here are some things...

Pete Metzelaars a great hire for the Chargers

Replacing Jason Michael was always going to be a tall order for Mike McCoy and the Chargers after Ken Whisenhunt hired away the former tight ends coach last week. The loss of Michael, who became the offensive coordinator for the Tennessee Titans on January 17th, and former offensive coordinator Whisenhunt could be a big blow to an offense that blossomed in 2013. However, the Chargers...

Replacing Jason Michael a challenge for San Diego

Last week, Chargers tight end coach, Jason Michael, was hired by the Tennessee Titans and new head coach Ken Whisenhunt to become their offensive coordinator. It’s pretty clear that Whisenhunt thought a lot about Michael to give him such a drastic promotion. The emergence of Ladarius Green, as well as the continued solid play from Antonio Gates in the twilight of his career, is...

Denver Broncos: Stop the Run, Beat the Chargers

I knew that the San Diego Chargers were gonna knock off the Cincinnati Bengals yesterday. The Bengals are still a young team and they still need time to learn how to manage expectations. Andy Dalton is still going through the NFL learning curve. Ben Roethlisberger won the Super Bowl in his 2nd season, but he's the exception to the rule. And he had a veteran team and a top notch...

San Diego Chargers Upset Cincinnati Bengals, 27-10

The San Diego Chargers came into the NFL Playoffs with a four-game win streak and with QB Phillip Rivers playing the best football of his career. Still, many people were unconvinced that this “warm-weather” team would be able to upset the explosive Cincinnati Bengals offense in Cincinnati. They, including myself, were wrong. The first drive for each team ended in punts, with...
