Many had the Chargers pegged for a long route to the postseason and potentially the Super Bowl. I for one had them ranked third overall in my preseason power rankings behind only the Patriots and Saints. The team had plenty of drama before the regular-season opener as Melvin Gordon was holding out for a new contract. Gordon would eventually end his holdout before week four. Superstar safety, Derwin James missed a significant amount of time with a foot injury suffered in mid-August. James would return by week 11, but it was too little too late. Continue reading →
The Chargers looked more like the team of 2018 last Sunday when they crushed the Jaguars 45-10. The Bolts are 1-1 against teams from the NFC North. The Vikings are this week’s opponent. Continue reading →
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday and enjoyed plenty of food, football, and family! Here is to also hope those three Turkey Day games didn’t put you into a whole and they started your week off great and is helping you get that final playoff spot you’re fighting for. Let’s dive quickly into last week’s report and then dig into the leftovers.
How does a team regress from 12-4 to 4-7 in less than 12 months? Just ask the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers vs Broncos Week 13 matchup features the AFC West stragglers. The Bolts have been woeful this season, avoiding a third straight defeat is the next goal for Anthony Lynn. The neutral will opt to avoid this game, but Chargers fans can relish the return of several key players. Continue reading →
The 0-4 Denver Broncos head to the 2-2 Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. It’s an AFC West Divisional game with plenty at stake. Denver knocked the Bolts off their stride in the corresponding game in 2018. Vic Fangio is reeling at the loss of pass rusher Bradley Chubb, but a road win in L.A. will boost the morale of the Broncos.
The 2018 season for the Los Angeles Chargers and Head Coach Anthony Lynn was a pleasant surprise. In 2018 the offense and defense clicked, which culminated in a 12-4 record with seven Pro Bowl selections. Despite losing in the divisional round of the playoffs, and the ongoing contract saga of Melvin Gordon (more on that later), expectations for 2019 in Los Angeles are now even higher, with talk of even a possible Super Bowl appearance, which would be the franchise’s first super bowl appearance since 1994.

The Los Angeles Chargers finished last season with a 12-4 record. Injuries caught up to the Chargers yet again, Jason Verrett and Hunter Henry were both out during the regular season. Denzel Perryman went down mid-season, Brandon Mebane had terrible news. His newborn child passed away, which forced him to miss a few games, and that was completely understandable. But, the Chargers were able to find the next man up every time. Derwin James can easily be a franchise player; Chargers have great young talent to build on, including veterans who can lead them to a possible Super Bowl run, led by Philip Rivers.
