He already has had his first two sacks and knocked away a pass in the end zone some 50 yards from the line of scrimmage. Last week in Buffalo, Derwin James was sort of like the hashmarks — he could be found all over the field. “What we’re seeing is he does play fast,” Chargers defensive coordinator...

Austin Ekeler is the league’s highest-graded running back via PFF

Austin Ekeler is the league’s highest-graded running back via PFF

From undrafted to head of the class. Just like everyone predicted right? After the first two weeks of the 2018 season, the highest-graded running back in the NFL by Pro Football Focus is none other than former undrafted free agent Austin Ekeler. His grade of 89.8 is just sliver under the threshold for “elite” (90+) and is a full 10 points ahead of the next closest back, the 49ers’ Matt Breida who comes in at 79.2. Ekeler has a chance to become the first undrafted RB with five or more TD catches in his first two seasons since 1966 (had three last year as a rookie and one this...

Three-Down Back: A trio of things to watch for against the Los Angeles Rams

Is this a David v. Goliath story, or something much more believable? So we are finally here. The highly-anticipated match-up between the Chargers and the Rams. The very first, legitimate installment of the #FightForLA. Are you ready? Because I don’t know if I am. I really wish that both teams were able to come into this game with unblemished records. That definitely would have pushed the stakes to an even higher level. Unfortunately, the Chargers come in at 1-1 and are officially a full touchdown underdog to the red-hot Rams. I recently made an appearance on the radio out in San Diego...

The Rams running back was the focus of the Arizona Cardinals’ attention last week. “A great game plan,” Gurley said Thursday, “but still...

Forrest Lamp keeps his guard up as he slowly tries to work his way into the Chargers' lineup

Forrest Lamp was drafted by the Chargers in April of 2017. He has yet to make his NFL debut, and there’s a good reason why. “There are certain plays in practice where you feel really good,” Lamp said Thursday. “Like, ‘Oh, dang, this kind of felt like it used to.’ Then there are plays that are really...

TNF Open Thread: New York Jets at Cleveland Browns

Come discuss the Thursday Night Football game with your fellow Chargers fans. Browns vs. Jets: NFL Week 3 Preview and Prediction - Dawgs By NatureTyrod Taylor’s touchdown passes have come in the fourth quarter in each of the first two games, but so have his interceptions. For all the talk about the kicking game, better throws or decisions in those cases could have also led to different outcomes in the game. It’s a tough internal debate to have with Taylor — because I feel he does need to be a little more aggressive, and not worry about the occasional turnover. Things happen. I’m...
