Matt Flynn Hopes His NFL Travels End In Oakland

Fans of the Oakland Raiders know the phrase “quarterback competition” almost more than any other in the English language. That is no different for the 2013 season, but Matt Flynn hopes that the competition ends his well-traveled career and ends with him.

Finally A Starter, Lance Moore Is Dancing It Up For The New Orleans Saints

Lance Moore is one of those players that understands what it means to pay your dues in the world of professional football. Now, after eight years in the league, he is going to be a starting wide received for the New Orleans Saints, and it is totally deserved.

Stevan Ridley Has Fought Through Crowds To Be The Patriots’ Featured Back

Steven Ridley always knew that he was talented and had the drive to be a star in the NFL. He knew it wouldn’t be easy though, and his path to being a starter for the New England Patriots was a long road with a lot of others standing in his way.

Quentin Jammer Has Stayed The True Professional And Silent Leader For The Chargers

Consistency is not something that the San Diego Chargers have had a lot of in recent years, but one thing has stayed certain for over a decade now and that is Quentin Jammer.

Eric Weddle Continues As Bright Spot In Disappointing Chargers Season

San Diego safety Eric Weddle knows that this isn’t the type of year that he or the Chargers wanted, but he’s not letting that stop him from trying to have a career season.

Ryan Mathews Wants To Do More For The Chargers, But Norv Turner May Not Let Him

Ryan Mathews has all the talent and ability to be an elite running back in the NFL and for the San Diego Chargers. What can a player do though, if his coach isn’t willing to give him the chance?

Robert Meachem Is Showing That His Status As A Draft Bust Is Coming Five Years Late

Sometimes, it just takes a few years for a player’s true colors to shine through. Unfortunately for the San Diego Chargers, Robert Meachem’s colors are now proving to be rather dull.


Antonio Gates against Denver

Charger Fans May Be Seeing the Twilight of Antonio Gates’ Career

As the San Diego Chargers head into the final six games of what is shaping up as a third straight season of missing the playoffs, one can’t help but think if the days of Antonio Gates in a Chargers’ uniform are winding down, too.



Could Alexander Be The Go-To Receiver Down The Stretch?

On a day where quarterback Philip Rivers threw one of his most horrific interceptions during his tenure in San Diego, Rivers did hook up with his new acquisition for five receptions and 134 yards.



Is It Time To Unleash Ronnie Brown?

Fans in Charger Country are asking why running back Ronnie Brown isn’t getting more carries. Thus far in 2012, he’s been splitting carries with Ryan Mathews, but it may be time to make Brown the go-to guy.



Chargers Still Getting Something From Veteran Spikes

Given his experience, San Diego’s Takeo Spikes seems to be a perfect fit on a Chargers’ club that is looking to bring some of its younger defensive talent along, especially fellow linebackers Larry English and Melvin Ingram.



Can The Chargers Flow With Rivers For The Long Haul?

After a demoralizing 35-24 loss at home to the Denver Broncos Monday in front of a nationwide crowd, fans couldn’t help but wonder they had just awoken from a nightmare. This was even scarier after Rivers accounted for six turnovers, including four interceptions.



Are The Chargers Receiving All They Can From Malcom Floyd?

You would think San Diego Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd would be the go-to guy for quarterback Philip Rivers and head coach Norv Turner, yet you do not always get that feeling when watching the Bolts.



Novak Getting Kick Out Of Another Run With Chargers

For the San Diego Chargers going into the 2012 camp, there certainly appeared to be legitimate questions as to whether or not longtime San Diego kicker Nate Kaeding would keep his job with the Bolts. Nick Novak kicked very well in 2011 after Kaeding suffered a season-ending injury, and Novak is now back with the Chargers after Kaeding suffered another injury.


Is It Time For A New Battle Plan With Chargers’ Running Attack?

The return of Mathews to the lineup was welcomed by most Charger fans, as the third-year pro out of Fresno State was coming off of a broken clavicle suffered in the preseason opener versus Green Bay. What wasn’t welcomed was Mathews again getting slippery hands with the ball. In 27 career games, Mathews has fumbled 11 times, with six being recovered by the opposition.
