Planes flying above LA Coliseum carry message telling Chargers to go back to San Diego

With the Battle for Los Angeles, or Fight for LA, or whatever you want to call it mere hours away, there are two airplanes flying over the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum carrying messages for the Los Angeles Chargers. Those messages are, “NFL, listen to Ice Cube. Chargers don’t belong in LA,” and “Go back to San Diego Chargers! LA doesn’t want you.” Annie Heilbrunn tweeted images of the banners: Two planes flying above the Coliseum today in advance of the #Chargers #Rams game, commissioned by @jmt619 and paid for by ex-Chargers fans, as well as Rams fans....

NFL Picks: Week 3 of the 2018 NFL Regular Season

NFL Picks: Week 3 of the 2018 NFL Regular Season

Last week, everyone did a pretty good job with the exception of Louis who managed to get 75% of his picks wrong. It was an especially embarrassing effort as he entered the week with the lead. On the opposite side of the spectrum was Grant who only missed four picks out of 16. This week, only Michael Peterson, Matthew Stanley, and Jamie Sewell were able to find it in themselves to pick the Chargers over the Rams. Hopefully, they are the ones who end up...

Five Questions with Turf Show Times

Five Questions with Turf Show Times

Ahead of the Fight for LA in Week 3, we sat down with Turf Show Times to get the lowdown on the Chargers rivals in LA. 1) How seriously are Rams fans seeing this whole ‘Fight for LA’ thing? For most Chargers fans, it doesn’t exactly feel like there’s a rivalry with the Rams, and it doesn’t feel like an even fight, either. Not seriously at all. Yet. With the Rams’ history and the fact that Spanos tried to block the Rams from returning to LA, many fans have a pretty strong disdain for the Chargers. Or at least for the owner. So there’s a bed of sentiment to develop a rivalry...

Chargers WR Mike Williams: debunking the curse of 7th overall pick

Chargers WR Mike Williams: debunking the curse of 7th overall pick

The NFL Draft seventh overall pick has been cursed for years. Williams looks to finally bring stability to the selection. The NFL Draft might be one of the weirdest events in all of sports history. A bunch of teams sit in a room and decide the fate of young athletes and where they will continue to play their football careers. How do they decide? Well of course the worst picks first. A team that has a lackluster offense, horrendous defense and terrible coaching is well deserving of getting all the help next season to improve their roster. Usually a quarterback, offensive tackle or pass...

REPORT: Kansas City Chiefs are possible landing spot for Earl Thomas

REPORT: Kansas City Chiefs are possible landing spot for Earl Thomas

Seattle Seahawks All-Pro safety Earl Thomas was not happy this Summer and things have not exactly improved. He missed a pair of practices and the team is mulling over levying heavy fines against the veteran playmaker. Chris Mortensen reports via Twitter that this could be bad news for the AFC West teams that don’t play in Kansas City: The Seahawks are considering a significant fine to Earl Thomas for conduct detrimental for twice missing practice. No final decision made. He's expected to play vs. Cowboys AND the Chiefs have emerged as a possible trade partner if Thomas is dealt this...

Chargers vs. Rams: game time, TV schedule, online streaming and more

The Los Angeles Chargers are coming off their first win of the season and are hoping to build a winning streak as they travel across town to take on the Rams in the so-called Fight for LA. Philip Rivers and the boys in bolts will have their hands full with a Rams team that is simply stacked on both offense and defense while simultaneously featuring one of the NFL’s best coaching staffs. It is possible that the Chargers will only have an advantage at one position today, but thankfully for Chargers fans that position is quarterback. Game time Kickoff is set for Sunday, September 23, 2018,...

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

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...

TNF Open Thread: New York Jets at Cleveland Browns

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...
