Key to better secondary in ’14 could be two Charger defensive backs coming off injuries

One player is 23. The other player is 24. The younger has played all of zero NFL games, while the elder statesman has a whopping four games of experience at the pro level. The last time either player played a competitive game of football, Norv Turner was coaching the Bolts and A.J. Smith sat in the general manager’s box at Qualcomm Stadium. And even though these two young men have...

San Diego Chargers: Grading Their 2013 Draft Class After Year One

Chargers' GM Tom Telesco's first NFL draft after the dismissal of long-time GM A.J. Smith was, indeed, interesting. San Diego fans watched with baited breath to see how Telesco would rebuild the team that A.J. decimated by letting go many exceptional players such as Darren Sproles, Vincent Jackson, and Shaun Phillips, to name a few, and rendering the Chargers of seasons past to sheer...

The 2013 defensive honors for the San Diego Chargers

The 2013-14 season for the San Diego Chargers was one that was filled with surpassed expectations.  Not many expected the Chargers to make a playoff run, and even though their season ended on Sunday evening at the hands of the division rival Denver Broncos, this was still a season to look back on with great pleasure.
