Chargers, NFL Play 60 team up for fun

INGLEWOOD, CA-There’s a lot more to the NFL Play 60 Character Camp than just a fun day at the park. Hall of Fame offensive tackle Anthony Munoz believes these daylong football and fitness camps help build character, teaches teamwork and develops the core value of learning how to be a […]

Lamp-Feeney: the Chargers beef brothers

CARSON, CA-The hysteria of the 2017 NFL Draft is over. Now it’s time to get to work. That means first round draft pick (No. 7 overall) wide receiver Mike Williams, second and third round draft picks Forrest Lamp (guard, No. 38) and Dan Feeney (guard, No. 71) will be going […]

Chargers go bold with Mike Williams pick

April 28 Dennis J. Freeman 0

ANAHEIM-OK. Scoring points just came a bit easier for the Los Angeles Chargers. Melvin Gordon. Keenan Allen. Hunter Henry. Dontrelle Inman. Tyrell Williams. That’s a whole lot of offensive weaponry. Now throw in the mix of all that offensive firepower the talents of Clemson wide receiver Mike Williams, and you […]

Chargers are now enbedded in LA

March 31 Dennis J. Freeman 0

Change is not always easy. But the Los Angeles Chargers are making it work. For the first time in over five decades, the Chargers will be playing in a home not called San Diego. During the course of the next two NFL seasons, the Chargers will make StubHub Center in […]

Coaching staff could flip Chargers switch

February 23 Dennis J. Freeman 0

New stadium. New philosophy. New logo. New coaching staff. Everything is new for the Los Angeles Chargers these days. The Chargers coaching staff could have the right mix of NFL minds to get the team into postseason with consistency. But there is nothing new about the men Chargers head coach […]

Chargers’ Anthony Lynn man of the hour

January 18 Dennis J. Freeman 0

CARSON, CA-The Los Angeles Chargers are moving about as fast as the moniker placed on the side of their helmets. In less than a month, the Chargers have dismissed former coach Mike McCoy, relocated their franchise into another city and announced the hiring of Anthony Lynn as their new coach. And they made […]

Casey Hayward’s Pro Bowl spotlight

December 21 Dennis J. Freeman 0

One team’s loss is another team’s treasure. When the San Diego Chargers signed cornerback Casey Hayward to a multi-year contract in the offseason, the Green Bay Packers knew they let one get away. The Chargers knew they were getting a well-rounded defensive back that would come in and upgrade their already talented secondary […]

Raiders Nation casts shadow over Chargers

December 19 Dennis J. Freeman 0

SAN DIEGO-Raiders Nation run deep. So does the motto “Just win, baby,” spawned by the late Al Davis. That’s what the Oakland Raiders had in their hip pocket when they defeated the San Diego Chargers, 19-16, Sunday at Qualcomm Stadium. By beating the Chargers for the fourth time in a row, the […]

Chargers’ season coming down to inches

December 5 Dennis J. Freeman 0

SAN DIEGO-Inches, not feet. That’s what the 2016 NFL season has come down to for the San Diego Chargers. A couple of inches higher on the arc of a pass intended for wide receiver Dontrelle Iman near the end of the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers might have reversed […]

Chargers intercepted at Dolphins pass

November 14 Dennis J. Freeman 0

SAN DIEGO-Opportunity. That would be the best word to describe the San Diego Chargers 2016 season. Like they have done all season, the Chargers put themselves in position for a win against the Miami Dolphins. And like they have executed all year long, the Chargers failed to put the finishing […]

Chargers honor team’s Hall of Famers

November 11 Dennis J. Freeman 0

SAN DIEGO- San Diego Chargers legends don’t die. They multiply. The memories are still there. That platform they used to bolster their names in the spotlight is still around. Some are gone. Thankfully, some are still here. They may be a bit gray around the temple these days. But there […]

Melvin Gordon playing with ‘LT’ mojo

November 7 Dennis J. Freeman 0

SAN DIEGO-Todd Gurley is not running the ball so well this season.  Melvin Gordon is, though. Gurley was the toast of the NFL last season as the newest stud running back. Gordon, for the most part, played like toast in 2015, gaining just 641 yards in 14 games. That’s not […]

Chargers light up Thursday night

October 14 Dennis J. Freeman 0

SAN DIEGO-Watching the fourth quarter of the NFL’s Thursday Night matchup between the San Diego Chargers and the Denver Broncos, LTD’s 1978 hit single “Holding On” kept popping up through my mind. Because that is exactly what the Chargers did to preserve their second win of the season. “It means […]

The Saints great escape

October 3 Dennis J. Freeman 0

SAN DIEGO-A tough loss. An unthinkable defeat. A hard to explain meltdown. Let me see, how to do you spell out give away? The San Diego Chargers did a pretty good job of doing that Sunday afternoon against the New Orleans Saints. It was not a good look. For three […]
