We’re midway through the 2015 regular season and the San Diego Chargers have one yard on punt returns, which puts them on pace for — calculator launched — two yards on punt returns this year.

The Chargers signed Brandon Flowers to a four-year, $36 million extension in the offseason. We all jumped for joy when we heard the news. It was a huge re-signing for the team, but now it's looking more and more like a huge mistake. You can't blame the organization on this one. They needed a solid cornerback opposite rising star Jason Verrett, and Flowers was that guy after being...

San Diego Chargers sign CB Patrick Robinson

Patrick Robinson has essentially been a bust as a 2010 1st round pick, but it hasn’t been for lack of talent. He’s just missed 22 games in 5 seasons and had serious trouble consistently staying healthy and on the field. His best season came in 2011, when he played 15 games (7 starts) and graded out as Pro Football Focus’ 19th ranked cornerback, but that’s not the norm for...

Patrick Robinson signs 1 year deal with Chargers
