Danny Woodhead carted off for RB-thin Chargers

The Chargers were thin at running back anyway, and they just got thinner. Danny Woodhead was just carted off the field with what appears to be a right ankle injury, and his return was announced as questionable. They were already without Ryan Mathews (sprained MCL), so they could ill afford any injury there.

Up To Buffalo

You knew I’d have to make some sort of Truckin’ reference. My flight for Buffalo leaves in a few hours, so I don’t have as much time as I’d like to talk about last week or look towards Sunday. As for the Seattle game, there wasn’t much to complain about. Sure, the defense gave up two long drives without much of a fight when a stop would have put the game out of reach sooner...

Big game coming up this week for the Bills. I think someone had on Twitter that since 1990, 75% of teams who go 3-0 make the playoffs. Of course, two of those teams that didn’t make the playoffs were the 2008 and 2011 Buffalo Bills. NFL betting strategy would say to bet on the Bills because of the Chargers being around .500 when it comes to going cross country. Anyways, we got...

Opinion: Sunday proves Chargers capable of jumping Denver in the AFC West

However, if you did happen to see the highlights from this game, you may have noticed San Diego has a distinct schematic advantage over Denver in 2014. When the Bolts went into Denver last season on Thursday night and upset the heavily...
