The LA Chargers have had some solid defensive teams Throughout franchise history, the LA Chargers have been known for more high-profile offenses than they have for elite defenses. However, this does not mean that there has not been any solid defenses in franchise history.

Chargers try take-two on Alabama OT in 2021 mock

Photo by Jonathan Bachman/ The current Tide left tackle could fill any hole the Bolts’ may have on the OL. General manager Tom Telesco was hired to run the Chargers in January of 2013. He got hired early enough in the process that he was able to enjoy some bowl games, the Super Bowl, and the bulk of that year’s draft season as the head honcho of the Bolts. After the Senior Bowl, Combine, and all of the pro days, Telesco was fully-prepared to make the first draft pick as a GM when the Chargers were on the clock. His selection? Alabama offensive tackle D.J. Fluker. Seven years later,...

Chargers Daily Links: Interior defensive line is a “unit to watch”

Photo by Jeff Gross/ Your source for all Chargers and NFL news from around the web. Stopping the run has been a fairy sizable thorn in the size of the Chargers in recent years. While it hasn’t been a revolving door for opposing backs, it’s been inconsistent enough to the point where opponents have been able to control the clock a little too well against the Bolts. With the addition of the hefty Linval Joseph, and the presumed progressions of youngsters Justin Jones and Jerry Tillery, there’s a sliver of optimism surrounding this unit heading into 2020. In a set of recent position...

Do the Chargers have the NFL’s best defense?

Do the Chargers have the NFL’s best defense?

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports Huge shoutout to Sheil Kapadia for taking a swing and sticking to it I love it. The Athletic’s Sheil Kapadia posted his rankings of all 32 NFL defenses headed into the 2020 season and he has the Los Angeles Chargers ranked second. Second! For the most part I think rankings have to be discarded as nothing more than throwaway, recyclable filler (that I happily partake in myself) and ultimately don’t carry any weight into the real world, but I have to an extend to “Way to go” to Kapadia for taking a stance that was probably not going to be popular....

Zero Chargers opt-out prior to deadline

Photo by Frederick Breedon/ All 80 players are ready and able heading into the start of training camp. It’s officially 4:13pm ET as I’m starting this article which means that today’s deadline for players to opt-out of the 2020 NFL season has officially come and gone. If you’re Anthony Lynn, you’ve got to be smiling. Somehow, some way, you’ve managed to retain your entire initial 80-man roster while also finding yourself with zero positive tests of Covid-19 at the same time. In fact, the Chargers are just one of three clubs - joining the Falcons and Steelers - as the only...

The Chargers’ WR3 competition is all shook up

Photo by Justin Edmonds/ The head coach wants speed and there’s only one player on the Bolts with the jets. Among their first six cuts of training camp, the Chargers released wide receiver Andre Patton, who was technically their WR3 during the 2019 season. But I mean, what’s the point of being the WR3 when you’re also, like, pass-catcher seven or eight at the same time? With Patton’s release, it opens the doors a little bit wider for the rest of the receivers on the roster. Hill and Reed may not have as much of a competition anymore and a young wideout near the bottom now has a...

Another round of notes from Anthony Lynn’s latest Zoom call

Photo by Jayne Kamin-Oncea/ A lot of player-specific questions from this call. Head coach Anthony Lynn met with media members once again on Wednesday to discuss all things Chargers, training camp, and Covid-19. Just like the rest of these pieces, I wrote down my notes and added some extra thoughts for you all. Here we go. Notes: Lynn repeated similar sentiments regarding Covid-19 that he first voiced on his call last Wednesday. The Chargers are facing multiple enemies this fall with the teams on their schedule and the coronavirus. So far, they’ve done an excellent job against the virus...
