Chargers Redistribute The Defense

Tuesday, October 28th, 2008

As a Chargers fan, I can't bring myself to celebrate the departure of Ted Cottrell. Sure, he was the architect of an underachieving defense who made Art Shell seem animated on the sidelines. Sure, he had no idea how to use the incredibly talented personnel given him by GM A.J. ...

Monday, September 15th, 2008

We've already published one considerably long, angry rant on this subject. But, like that long distance relationship that ended with a break up text message, all we want is some real closure.

In San Diego, we're well known for the fantastic weather and the laid-back atmosphere of our sports stadia. And rightly so; there's no better place on earth to live. Yet, the two major sports teams in San Diego, the Padres and Chargers, are historically unremarkable teams. Never too good, occasionally ...

Who Will Save The Chargers?
