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...

With Geathers and Lissemore injured, should the Chargers pursue DT Alan Branch?

When Kwame Geathers was carted off Sunday afternoon, it sure didn’t appear like he was going to play football again this season. The big man bent in ways a 335-pound human being should not bend. However, early indications reveal some hope the second-year player avoided ligament damage. Geathers will have an MRI today, and we will await results before worrying too much, but if the...

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...

Top 10 DT’s in the draft: Will the Chargers replace Thomas or stick with Lissemore?

The most predominant theme of the offseason for the Chargers has been “how can we improve our defense?”. While the stats will show the most logical area of improvement is the secondary — and all Chargers fans have surely spoken of the need at corner — the nose tackle position in the 3-4 defense is the singular position that can completely change a defense. Remember the dominant...

Top 10 Free Agent Defensive linemen: Could Raji replace Cam Thomas?

One of lesser addressed points of the 2013 season in San Diego was the unmet expectations of Corey Liuget and Kendall Reyes to develop into a dominate tandem. While Liuget had a good season, some would say Reyes had a disappointing year. I, however, am not one of those people. In a 3-4 defense, the defensive ends are some of the lesser appreciated players on the field, and I think...
