Chargers CB Marshall sees gains via strength

If nothing else in the last year, Chargers cornerback Richard Marshall developed sympathy for movie critics. It’s no fun sitting through a clunky movie, even if you’re paid to do it. When Marshall watched football film of his 2013 season, his first with the Chargers, it was sort of like chewing stale popcorn. “I don’t feel like I was 100 percent last year,” he said. “I...

Early indications show Chargers’ secondary improving in 2014

The secondary of the San Diego Chargers was not good last year. This is a topic that has been covered a lot, but no amount of analysis can overstate how bad it really was.

In pass coverage, the Chargers were 31st in...

The top 10 cornerbacks in the 2014 draft: At least one of these players will be a Charger

The resounding position of need following the 2013 season for the San Diego Chargers was at cornerback. The 29th ranked pass defense (including 31st and 32nd against No. 1 and No. 2 receivers) needs players who can lock it down on the outside to open up big plays on the inside. While the numbers look bad, they are actually a bit misleading. Shareece Wright came on strong towards...

Telesco playing dangerous game by not adding a cornerback before the draft

There’s a misleading sentiment around the idea of building through the draft. The idea is the best roster management comes from attaining the best players in the draft instead of signing players through free agency. While the draft remains the most efficient way to bring in skilled players on valued contracts — even in his second year Keenan Allen won’t nearly be paid what...
