Win does Chargers’ hearts good

SAN DIEGO-Maybe the San Diego Chargers should play the Denver Broncos more often. Judging by their 21-13 win at home last week against their AFC West wolfpack rivals, the Chargers looked like more of the role of the pitbull going for the death grip on the throats of the Super Bowl 50 champions. You can […]


Chargers light up Thursday night

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.

The Saints great escape

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 and a half quarters, the […]

Chargers lost a lot more than KC game

Down goes Johnson. Down goes Allen. Six words the San Diego Chargers are unwittingly living with today. It was hard enough for the the Chargers to deal with wide receiver Stevie Johnson being lost for the season after sustaining a knee injury during training camp. They’ve got double-trouble now after seeing wideout Keenan Allen being […]

A quarterback class of hits, ifs, maybe’s and stiffs

When you look at the quarterback situation in the National Football League, there really isn’t that much that separate many of the starters to the clipboard holders. With the exception of the top-tier group of quarterbacks, everybody pretty much look alike, sound alike, move the same way and bring nothing exceptional to the table. In […]

Chargers to focus efforts downtown

For the San Diego Chargers, the future may still be in San Diego. When the Chargers closed in on their 30-14 win against the Miami Dolphins back in December of last year in the team’s home finale, a lot of tears were shed. Frustration mounted in the parking lot from fans, and players felt hapless […]


The ‘Super’ dynamics of Cam Newton

SAN FRANCISCO, CA–Stereotypes have never been a friend of Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. That’s because just about everywhere he turns, Newton simply breaks them. You’re not going to conveniently define him as a black quarterback. That’s too simple of a label to attach to him. As far as Newton is concerned, labels are for […]


Inglewood’s two-step tango with Rams acclimated

It’s time to party. Well, it’s time to play some football. Then it’s time to party. The Rams have already put on their dancing shoes. Now they’re just waiting to see if they’ll get a partner to join them on the dance floor. It doesn’t matter if the speakers blare out Al Green’s “Love and […]


The sudden fall of Chip Kelly

If you cut off the head, the body will soon follow. When Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles decided to get rid of a still very effective, playmaking Michael Vick, they didn’t just cast aside an aging scrambler with a rocket arm, they gave away the franchise’s soul. From all the accounts that I have […]

Chargers go out with a bang

SAN DIEGO-If Sunday’s 2015 home finale for the San Diego Chargers was indeed the last game they are to play at Qualcomm Stadium, the team at least gave their fans something to shout about.
