Monday Morning Hangover: WR Review, Liuget's Extension, and No More Weddle?

Chargers Next Step Spotlight: Ryan Carrethers - @JakeTHefner“Since the days of former nose tackle Jamal Williams anchoring the middle of San Diego’s defensive line, the Chargers have been searching for the next dominant player who can take on that responsibility. At 6-foot-1, 333 pounds Carrethers doesn’t quite hold the same measurements that Williams did, but his intangibles...

Chargers Front Seven Must Be Upgraded

With the San Diego Chargers deciding to pass on impact edge rushers and not go after a run-stuffing nose tackle in free agency, the front seven is now one of their biggest needs entering the draft. The Chargers hold the 17th overall pick this year, and a prospect that could impact the front seven must be on general manager Tom Telesco’s mind.Stopping the run was a major disappointment...

Chargers get good and bad news on the injury front

Monday was a bit of a mixed bag for the San Diego Chargers. The day started with bad news for rookie defensive tackle, Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe. The big man from Boise State tore his ACL and will miss all of 2014. Unfortunately for San Diego, Tjong-A-Tjoe was having a solid preseason culminating with a slew of second-team reps during yesterday’s game. With Sean Lissmore missing time...

Camp Preview: Lissemore/Carrethers battle, Reyes and Liuget must blossom

In a 3-4 defense, defensive linemen become often the most overlooked impact players on a given unit. In San Diego, we know all too well just how important strong play from the men up front can be for defensive success as we had one of the best zero-techniques to ever do it — Jamal Williams. As a two-time All-Pro and three-time Pro Bowler, Williams “ate up” opposing interior...

He’s A Complicated Man And No One Understands Him But Bill Polian

Tom’s Draft. Yes, I know I just made a pretty bad Isaac Hayes parody.  But after all these years, you run out of titles for posts.  I won’t bore you with another half-assed explanation as to why it’s been so long since I last wrote.  The Chargers seem to have put together a pretty good draft, although no one knows what kind of impact it will have on the field this season...

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...

San Diego Chargers: Why Ryan Carrethers was their best pick

The San Diego Chargers were not a force on defense last year. The Bolts surrendered the second-highest yards per play, ranked 23rd in total defense and 29th in pass defense. Let’s put it this way: they were no Seattle Seahawks. While Philip Rivers had a revival season throwing passes to Rookie of the Year candidate Keenan Allen, the defense floundered. It was to no one’s surprise...

Chargers Agree To Terms With Late-Round Picks DT Carrethers, RB Grice & WR Reese

The San Diego Chargers agreed to terms Wednesday with three draft picks: fifth-round DT Ryan Carrethers, sixth-round RB Marion Grice and seventh-round WR Tevin Reese, per Aaron Wilson. Carrethers is a big body that San Diego could plug in to the nose tackle position.  The Arkansas State product can occupy multiple blockers in the run game, but is not projected to provide much of...

What does each draft pick bring to the Chargers moving forward?

Round One: Pick 25: Jason Verrett, CB, TCU: I have adored Verrett’s play and fit into the Chargers scheme since the beginning of the draft. A phenomenal off-ball, man corner, Verrett played in a scheme quite similar to that of the Chargers and excelled at it. Take away his height disadvantage, which never hurt him in college, and you see a very smart, technically sound player who...
