San Diego Chargers take a fall in Week 1 Power Rankings

It’s here. The 2014 NFL season has finally arrived. After a seven-month hiatus, pro football is back! Heading into the new campaign, the league is filled with contenders and pretenders, teams that have a shot of winning a title and franchises that are only fooling themselves if they believe there’s a chance. The offseason, training camp and preseason went a long way toward showing...

Chargers cut Grice, add Mathews

SAN DIEGO (AP) Running back Marion Grice, a sixth-round pick from Arizona State, was released by the San Diego Chargers on Monday in favor of defensive lineman Ricardo Mathews. Chargers general manager Tom Telesco is familiar with Mathews. Telesco was in the Colts' front office when Mathews was a seventh-round pick in 2010. Over four years in Indianapolis, Mathews played in...

Chargers pick DT Ricardo Mathews over Marion Grice, Kevin Vickerson

When the final cuts were made on Saturday afternoon, the Chargers had five running backs on the roster. Most assumed the final spot would come down to a battle between rookie backs Marion Grice and Branden Oliver, and they were correct. Initially, Tom Telesco and the Chargers kept both backs as waiving either could have resulted in their departure from San Diego. However, when a...

San Diego Chargers Preseason Wrap: The Good, Bad & Ugly

The Chargers were a nice postseason surprise last year (particularly for us frustrated fans), not only making it into the playoffs but also beating the Bengals in the wildcard round. It appeared that the new Tom Telesco-Mike McCoy era was one of positivity, thus seeking to negate the fiasco the former pairing of A.J. Smith and Norv Turner left. McCoy's motivating organizational...

Tom Telesco has an excruciating decision to make between his two rookie backs

Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman recently dismissed the idea that the fourth and final preseason game is meaningless. And for some members of the San Diego Chargers, that statement rings true as well. The Chargers recently made maneuvers to trim the roster down to 75 players. Marcus Cromartie, Kwame Geathers, and Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe were all placed on Injured Reserve; Jeromey...

National confidence level in San Diego Chargers drops after preseason Week 3

The dress rehearsals are in the books; at least that’s how the NFL likes to position the third week of the preseason. And to some extent, it’s accurate; more than at any time during the exhibition season, starters around the league play, some even into the second half. Thus, there are things to be learned from what transpired this week. The results on the field were the best...

Marion Grice vs. Branden Oliver: Who will make the roster with final cuts approaching?

The third preseason game gave us little insight as to who is going to emerge between Branden Oliver and Marion Grice. What we do know is that between Ryan Mathews, Danny Woodhead and Donald Brown, the Chargers are developing a three-headed monster in the backfield. These backs give the Bolts plenty of options behind Philip Rivers in 2014. However, with Ryan Mathews set to be a free...

Initial takeaways from the Chargers 41-14 loss in Seattle

As good as the effort and intensity levels were for the Chargers last week, they were equally as bad Friday night in Seattle. Yes, it’s just the preseason, and in the long run, no one is going to remember this game, but Mike McCoy will not be happy with how flat his team was going up against the defending Super Bowl champions. San Diego looked like a team that didn’t want to...

Tomorrow night, San Diego rides into the defending Super Bowl champion’s home on a bit of a high note. Following a dominating 27-7 victory over Dallas in the first week of preseason football, the Bolts have a lot to be positive about — and a lot to work on. The first-team offense looked great against against the Cowboys, but wasn’t able to put an emphatic period on their opening...

Don’t be too quick to count out Marion Grice in San Diego

After one preseason game, Marion Grice is no longer a San Diego Charger. At least that’s the case if the media reports and fan overreaction are to be believed. After a subpar performance in the first game against the Dallas Cowboys, Grice suddenly has apparently found himself on the wrong side of the roster bubble. As usual is the case after just one preseason game, it’s time...

Sparknotes version game recap: Chargers handle the Cowboys 27-7

The most encouraging part of the Chargers victory this evening was the complete performance by the entire roster.

Yesterday, we talked in depth about the overemphasis placed on single preseason games. However, there is no doubt this game means a lot to specific players within the Chargers organization. Aside from final 30-40 players fighting for a roster spot somewhere in the NFL, certain Chargers — who are lower on the depth chart — will get the opportunity to play the majority of snaps...

Training Camp Preview: Chargers backfield won’t lack depth in 2014

On January 12th this year, while the Bolts were battling against the Broncos in freezing Mile High City conditions, Ryan Mathews found himself on the sidelines. The breakout back was a monster in 2013 finishing with 1,255 yards in the regular season, but when the Chargers needed the running game the most, they were forced to turn to Danny Woodhead.

Which Charger draft pick will make the biggest impact in 2014?

After a stellar 2013 draft class, it’s completely relevant to expect some big things from the six players the Chargers drafted in 2014. Last season, assuming D.J. Fluker or Manti Te’o would have been the biggest rookie play-maker was a valid thought. However, it ended up being the third round pick, Keenan Allen, who was the high-impact rookie the Bolts needed at wide receiver...
