San Diego Chargers tumble down preseason Power Rankings, check in at No. 19

Every team has played two games. Most of the starters have seen enough action to provide a sense of what a team has to offer. And the picture is becoming clearer around the league. Yes, it’s dangerous to put too much stock in preseason games. But it’s also foolish to ignore information that can be very valuable, which is what exhibitions provide to the keen observer.

The positive takeaways from the Chargers’ frustrating loss against Seattle

The Chargers got trounced 41-14 at the hands of the defending Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks on Friday, and it is easy to pile on and tear down San Diego’s performance.
