Projected Chargers Offensive Starters

The 2013 Chargers saw some great success among the very talented AFC West division. They looked to up and comers, some veterans and a few resurgent players to thrive late in the season. The roster shouldn’t change too much, given the team’s play. However, change is inevitable, and there are some possibilities that are intriguing, but it seems as though repetition might be the...

The best Nos. 90-99 in the NFL today revealed; how’d the San Diego Chargers do?

Certain players are simply synonymous with certain numbers. It’s hard to see No. 4 without thinking of Brett Favre. Seven will always be John Elway. A pair of twos right next to each other is Emmitt Smith. And the sight of 56 conjures up memories of Lawrence Taylor. Those are some of the all-time greats, players who have etched their names in the NFL’s history books. But there...

San Diego Chargers deemed “contender” that won’t make NFL playoffs in 2014

One of the great things about the NFL is that nearly every team can make a case for the upcoming season being “their year.” That’s because every campaign sees plenty of worst-to-first turnarounds, where non-playoff teams from the year before suddenly find themselves in postseason contention down the stretch. Conversely, that also means that there are plenty of franchise that...

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...

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.
