San Diego Chargers vs. Chicago Bears: Preseason Game 2 Starters Summary and Thoughts

The Chicago Bears hosted the San Diego Chargers on Monday Thursday Night Football on ESPN. It was a great time for the Chargers to show their new team led by Coach Mike McCoy. The Bears also have a new coach, Marc Trestman, and they were ready to show off their new team. In a battle of new coaches, it would not be a good game for the Chargers.

San Diego Chargers vs. Seattle Seahawks: Preseason Game 1 Summary and Thoughts

The San Diego Chargers have many new faces and returning faces in the 2014 season. They have a new coach in Mike McCoy, a new offensive coordinator in Ken Wisenhunt, and a new general manager in Tom Telesco.

Offense has quarterback Phillip Rivers looking to redeem himself after two terrible seasons, running back Ryan Matthews needs to show he can play a 16 game season, the receivers must step up with the loss of Danario Alexander, and their offensive line has to be the strong.

San Diego Chargers 2012 Schedule: Good News & Bad News

The San Diego Chargers 2012-2013 schedule has officially been announced. A few things to notice from this schedule is that the Chargers will be on national TV five times this year, the difficulty of their schedule, and how it impacts the whole AFC West.

The first piece of good news is the abundance of national TV games. Their first game of the season will be September 10, 2012 at the Oakland Raiders on ESPN Monday Night Football. October 7, 2012 they will play at the New Orleans Saints on NBC Sunday Night Football. October 15, 2012 they will host the Denver Broncos on ESPN. November 1, 2012 they will host the Kansas City Chiefs on NFL Network Thursday Night Football. Finally, they will play December 23, 2012 at the New York Jets on NBC. It will be exciting to see them getting more exposure on national TV. Sadly with good news, there is also bad news.

San Diego Charger Wide Receiver Signings Are A Net Gain

San Diego fans may look at Vincent Jackson’s’ departure as another failure to sign by A.J (AJ),Smith. However with the acquisition of Wide Receiver (WR), Robert Meacham and Eddie Royal this past week, Smith has provided Quarterback Phillip Rivers with viable deep threats.

Meacham will fit right in here in San Diego. He averages nearly one touchdown catch for every six receptions—Fantasy leagues are taking note already. Some might consider his career in New Orleans a bust, however with Quarterback Drew Brees throwing the ball all over the yard to multiple targets(remember Rivers targeting 17 Receivers in  2010?), Meacham’s lack of a 50 plus reception year is deceiving. Moreover Meacham averages nearly 17 yards per catch.

Shawne Merriman Back in Chargers Training Camp

Shawne Merriman has returned! Woo hoo and raise a toast. Merriman has finally agreed to a deal with the Chargers today, which he confirmed via Twitter, saying:

“Just signed my tender and glad to be back with my teammates thanks to everyone.”
