    PFF's SUPER early 2017 mock draft

    There's a legit part of me that's hoping one or more of the CB's do enough at the combine to really move themselves head and shoulders above the pack... because that would/should convince Tennessee to lean more toward premium position (which is a fledgling trend their front office has shown)...

    Hardwick stirring the pot.... Rivers to 49ers?

    Technically all housecats are thinking of how they'd kill their owners if only there wasn't so much of a size differential...

    Hardwick stirring the pot.... Rivers to 49ers?

    The state of the Broncos when they brought in Peyton vs the current state of the Niners is like comparing an African lion to my house cat.

    NFL Owners are pissed at Dean

    I can flat out guarantee you that the NFL wants 4 teams in California (because it has the population and economy to support that number), and they're going to view San Diego as preferable to anywhere in NorCal unless a team is willing to bunk up with the Niners in Santa Clara (and that would...

    Gus Bradley named Defensive Coordinator

    What holes at LB are there exactly? Bradley runs a 4-3 Over, which is... um... fairly close to what Pagano was running last season. LB is actually the least of concerns for the Chargers' personnel group. The Lotto/WLB/Irvin/Clark position fits Ingram better than 3-4 OLB ever did (the real...

    Who's still a Chargers fan?

    The "vets" on the team are almost entirely younger than him. Again, the Rams are one of the youngest teams in the league; they have a whopping 1 player younger than their 30-year-old head coach... and that guy, William Hayes, is likely a trade/cut casualty because he flatly doesn't fit Wade's...

    Who's still a Chargers fan?

    Just saying, it took all of 5 minutes into the presser from that 30 year old for me to realize he had more sense of how to actually motivate and organize than I ever saw from Mike McCoy in his entire tenure as Chargers HC. Obviously, McCoy isn't the ideal litmus test, but the point remains...

    Who's still a Chargers fan?

    Yes, I watched him. Being in the LA market, I was afforded the opportunity to watch more Rams games than Chargers games this season (I ended up having to stream most of the Chargers games in order to see them). Goff looked like a rookie QB would be expected to look behind a bad OL in an...

    River's rumor has it he wants to be traded

    Acee and Trotter (who even noted that he texted Phil directly to verify) have both confirmed that there's nothing to these rumors that Rivers is lobbying for a trade. This is beat writers from other teams trying to sell copy on the back of BS. moreover, Elway's already said that they're...

    Who's still a Chargers fan?

    The Rams have their 2nd and a 3rd (as I pointed out, they're getting out and out screwed if they're not given a 3rd round compensatory selection for their losses in free agency last year - and if they are given one, it goes to Tennessee as part of the trade and the Rams retain their natural...

    Who's still a Chargers fan?

    Ugh, I don't want to turn this into a Rams discussion, but there's so much ignorance in this post - I feel compelled. Kroenke's a businessman first and a sportsman second. But he's also a massively savvy businessman - and he understands that part and parcel to stirring up a sustaining fan base...

    Who's still a Chargers fan?

    Unfortunately, I think if the league strong-arms the Spanii out, it will be for an owner that they are confident that can both bring success and more specific bring it in LA. It's why I feel like they may look heavily to Steve Ballmer. The NFL's Power Circle wants two franchises in LA because...

    Who's still a Chargers fan?

    Thing is, and has been made perfectly clear in all this, the inner circle of power (I could probably work up a model using the Hellfire Club from Marvel Comics as an example) among the NFL owners has made it perfectly clear that what they care about most is making the most money possible. To...

    Who's still a Chargers fan?

    At this point, you might as well just fart into jars and mail them to him.

    Who's still a Chargers fan?

    My pleasure. I'll still pop in from time to time to see folks and people can feel free to hit me up to chat on Twitter. THe friends and connections I've maintained in the writing and podcasting stuffs I've done regarding the Chargers aren't suddenly just going to stop being friends because...

    Who's still a Chargers fan?

    So, I come from an interesting position - one where I feel like I can actually advise a bit as I've been through this before. A few have heard me tell my story of how I became a Chargers fan, but here it is with a hope that maybe folks can gain something from it given the current climate. drive...

    2017 Head Coach Candidates

    If his agent is even halfway good at his job, he demanded a 5+ year contract. Whether he's good or not, Lynn will be coaching this team their first season in MegaKroenkeMountain of Inglewood.

    It's ridiculous, but can you honestly say it doesn't fit with Dean's M.O.

    2017 Head Coach Candidates

    I already posted this up to Twitter but my gut feeling about the Lynn hire: Dean panicked and didn't want the Rams hiring of McVay to dominate the LA media, so he did what - in his mind - was a move of one-upsmanship and hired the guy who happened to be in for a second interview today (i.e...

    2017 Head Coach Candidates

    Well, considering the Texans' owner already came out and said that O'Brien's job is safe... not exactly sure how that's supposed to happen.
