Chargers defense turning up the volume after slow start

After not having much to cheer about in their preseason opener, the Los Angeles Chargers defense was back at full volume Wednesday.

Gates deserves a lift like Gwynn got

Antonio Gates has never played in a Super Bowl. And that bothers many San Diegans. They saw that most opponents had no defender who could guard Gates. But tight ends not as good as Gates went to the Super Bowl every year.Happily for the Padres and local baseball fans, Tony Gwynn spent his 20-year...

Chargers-Seahawks Final Score: Los Angeles Chargers Lose to the Seattle Seahawks 48-17

The Los Angeles Chargers started the game on offense following a Blair Walsh touchback by the Seattle Seahawks. Melvin Gordon got the offense rolling with an effective run off left tackle. Philip Rivers found second-year tight end Hunter Henry for a 17-yard gain. An ineffective run and an incomplete pass set up a 3rd & long, but Travis Benjamin converted it to keep the drive alive. Gordon continued his success by moving the sticks. Oliver then relieved him and had consecutive positive plays running and receiving. Gordon got the offense inside the 10, and Antonio Gates finished off the...

Seahawks at Chargers: Five Players To Watch

Richard Sherman and Co. travel to Los Angeles to take on the Chargers in a half-baked return to football season. Remember that game against the Seahawks in 2014? I do, Seattle was coming off of a dominant Super Bowl rout of the Broncos, and following a dismantling of the Green Bay Packers in Week 1, they were seen as absolute world-beaters. Nevertheless, the Chargers would prevail, as Rivers tossed three touchdown strikes to Antonio Gates and the football-loving community was left shocked. Sorry to say it, but tonight’s contest against the Seahawks will most likely not compare to that...

Which Los Angeles Chargers Tight End Has the Most to Prove in Training Camp?

Can Jeff Cumberland outperform Sean McGrath? The Tight End position has been largely synonymous with the Chargers for as long as most fans can remember. First, it was Kellen Winslow, then it was Antonio Gates, and now it is Hunter Henry. You could say that what the team has lacked in promising offensive lineman lately has been made up for with unimaginable success at the tight end position. They’ve been spoiled, almost. As solid as the Gates/Henry duo looks, the team must carry at least one more tight end and that third slot is being fought for by Jeff Cumberland and Sean McGrath. With...
